We've eaten here several times on multiple visits to the island. Very mixed crowd from young to older. There is large bar and many tables, most under cover. Limited parking. On the beach and they do have planned children's activities at times, so something for everyone. It's Grill food primarily plus pizza, although I dont believe we ever ordered the... More

Stopped in here after dinner one night to catch a hockey game. Beer is cold, service is good and the price is right. We had been here before on previous trips and it was the same as we remembered it, and its just a short walk back to the Royal Palm.

Average Food--please stick to the basics like grilled chicken sandwich or burgers. The pizza was horrible. Decently priced for an island (about $15 for a grilled chicken sandwich with fries). Local spot--bartenders should learn when to cut people off. Cool place. Good music.

We spent the day on this little beach bar . The water there was calm and super blue. It was a holiday on the island so lots of local kids hanging out , which was great bc my 3 year old had somebody to play with. Ribs and chicken wings were great at this place . Do not put BBQ... More

The view is nice. All the reviews we read were great so we decided to go. The bartender was not very friendly. He barely said hello when we sat down and then had to wait until he finished talking to order a drink.

We happened upon here based on a recommendation from the Hotel across the street. We were able to sit in their beach chairs under the umbrella and the staff came right to your chair for your drink and food order. Simpson Bay is just wonderful, very calm water and beautiful beach. We were there on a Monday and we almost... More

We could walk here from the Royal Palm where we were staying. They have great burgers! It's almost on the beach and great for drinks and watching the sun go down. Very casual, a lot of fun!

Had a great night eating pizza on the beach. Pizza was great and we had a beautiful view of the sunset overlooking Simpson bay. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNP40pSBcEI

This is a nice and lively place. It is right at the beach and is very popular with Dutch ex-pat families with kids (including good friends of mine who are such a Dutch ex-pat family with kids). Drinks are relatively cheap and service is fine. The quality of the food is o.k. You don't expect haute cuisine in a place... More
