A bit loud and smoky but the BBQ is very good. Service is okay and the experience is a beach experience. Nothing special and easy for staying in Cane Garden Bay.

Wonderful Caribbean food, shepherd's pie, fresh fish, this place has it all! And a great view of Cane Garden Bay! The main chef, Tony, is a master of barbecue which is served twice a week with live music. His rotisserie can't be beat and he is very accommodating of food allergies -- true gem.

They serve BBQ ribs, chicken and mahi mahi every Friday and Sunday evenings. The BBQ is excellent and is accompanied by local music. Definitely worth the stop.

Ribs, fish and chicken $22. All very tasty. The beer was cold and the waitresses were friendly. The band were brilliant. The played and sang all night. Key board and steel drum. Amazing! Best night out on our flotilla!

The atmosphere is Elm's is as if you are one of the family. The food was the best on the beach for the value. The wait staff know you by name and remember you from years before. The bar is well managed as evidenced by the attitude of the staff. Live music and cook outs makes you feel like you... More

First of all, I will preface this review with the fact that we travel in the Caribbean a lot and I have been to Tortola 7-8 times so I know all about "island time" and I embrace it. I know that things are slower and more relaxed. But I find that most of the time service is still friendly. We... More

We always take in the Elm Beach Suites BBQ cookouts on Friday and Sunday when visiting in Cane Garden Bay and it never disappoints. They have finished the renovation and addition to the existing facility and instead of eating on picnic tables, this year we were all served in the open air restaurant. Much fun and the food was delicious.... More
