The night we went we were with a group of 10 people some of them we were meeting for the first time. The atmosphere is typical island flavour. Open air restaurant with the Chef BBQ'ing right beside you. (and the smoke filling up the venue I might add) The entrées the night we went were bbq'd chicken or ribs. I... More

We hired two chairs, umbrella and had drinks - unfortunately the staff is just rude and horrible as they did not open their restroom for us! Finally we decided to have lunch in another place! Avoid that bar! They don't like tourists.

Don't miss the BBQ's on Friday nights! Chicken, Ribs or Fish...or a combination of all three! Absolutely delicious! The "Elm-tones" are the house band and they really add to the atmosphere. We also enjoyed Roti for lunch on several occasions during our stay in CGB.

We had the 3-meat plates made up of mahi mahi, chicken, and ribs. YUM!!! The service was fantastic. Tony, the Jamaica-man, was spinning his magic on the grill. We heard great music there, too.

We were there on one of their BBQ nights. Ribs, Chicken, Fish and 2 sides for $18-22. The BBQ was pretty good - nothing amazing - the sides were ok - no choices. Some OK views, but this place doesn't have too much personality. If you want it quiet - that could be a good thing. Compared to places like... More

We've been to the Elm Beach Bar a few times. Always have enjoyed the BBQ Chicken. Great music by The Elm Tones -- a great evening in Cane Garden Bay.

Elm has plentiful portions of great food prepared by Tony on a live charcoal grill on a beautiful beach. You can choose ribs, chicken, fish or a combination of any or all. Prices vary on how many meats your order, which is very fair. I think one meat was $20. Add a really cool band that plays some of everything... More

We had a lovely chilled evening with bbq ribs and mahi. Live music was fab on the Sunday evening. Lovely vibe and great recommendation. My only bug was this was the only time in 10 days that I got quite a few mosi bites (and on my face!)as we were there at dusk. Be armed with deet!
