Will visit again, just not for dinner.

Brought our very good friends to happy hour and made dinner reservations on the spot. This was our third visit to Saba Rock, and we knew it to be 'resort island-time" kind of take-it-or-leave-it atmosphere because sooo many tourists come here.

We went o Saba Rock restaurant for Valentine's Day dinner. We both dressed up nicely and had huge smiles and expectations for a lovely night of romance and great Caribbean food- we had been to the bar a few days earlier and the cocktails were fantastic. We were greeted by an indifferent hostess who led us way to the back,... More

Easy to moor at and a great spot for drinks and watching the world go by! Best selection of drinks we came across in North Sound - even nicely chilled Prosecco by the glass - and not as expensive as some other places.

Last night out sailing around the carribbean and it was absolutely perfect. We had a table next to the sea, we were looked after wonderfully and the food was amazing. Surf and turf with steak and swordfish has to be one of my all time favourite dishes. Everything was spot on. Couldn't fault it.

This beautiful oasis available by free water shuttle is a gem. I highly recommended the trip. There is a water taxi available from gun creek, you can call if there isn't one there. Saba Rock is very small but the restaurant is great. The BEST fish tacos ever! Enjoy a walk about, good lunch, and water taxi home. The parking... More

The ferry ride is half the fun, seeing all the yachts and sailboats as you go by. The restaurant has decent food, and the the terrace is a great place to hang out and relax. Take a couple of hours and make the trip during the day so you can see the sights.

The restaurant/bar was packed. We met people who had been coming here for 12 years and had never seen it like that. Service was really slow, and I'm still waiting for the drink I ordered. Food and ambiance good and I'm guessing that service is usually better.

Amazing location, smack in the bay right in front of the bitter end yacht club; no better location in an island setting anywhere. Service was extremely slow....food was just okay; you pay for the location. Lots of standard beach/bar fare. I had a black bean burger with good, hot fries. Drinks were ok as well.

We took the ferry to Saba rock as we were moored in leverick bay. We basically came for happy hour painkillers and the tarpon feeding. We enjoyed both. We decided to stay for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the salad bar. We had the beef stir fry and the half chicken. Both dinners were excellent and the portions large enough that... More

View, ambiance, location = fantastic! There is a lot of outdoor seating at the restaurant and it is a very enjoyable place to pass a few hours eating and drinking. Amble over to the other side to watch kiters if it is windy. Food is good but we prefer just having happy hour and ordering appetizers and sandwiches etc (we... More
