A Memorable Evening

My family and I took an instant liking to the owner, Sam, when we arrived for a few drinks. He was kind and accommodating. He encouraged us to return later in the evening to enjoy their DJ and some limbo. We had a blast trying to beat Sam (he is very talented at limboing) and we shared many laughs... read more

Wow, the only bad experience ever in the BVIs. Family of 8 adults sailed to Anegada where we had been before. Made the choice not to eat there to try the Anegada Reef Hotel, which was excellent. Suppose the owner Sam took that as an insult. Or maybe it was the fact that he was drunk out of his mind.... More

This was my second visit to Anegada. For dinner we ate at Potters by the sea, and the lobster was amazing! Prices were quite reasonable, and the setting was wonderful, with great views over the water. After dinner, the bar area turns into somewhat of a party with a DJ, and is truly a good time! Potters has a wonderful... More

Our experience with Potters By The Sea started at 11am when we pulled up at our mooring. Sam the cook came out to our boat and serenaded us. How could we resist just a good sales job. We weren't disappointed. We were seated right next to the pristine white beach and could see Sam cooking the lobster over a fire.... More

If you want to pick your own live lobster, watch it be prepared and have a lovely meal in what you imagine a small island beach bar Potter's is the place. You'll eat family style, your choice of salad dressings will be out of the same bottles you can buy at home but the lobster and the rest of the... More

Fresh, perfectly seasoned lobster was had by all. We had a great experience here and danced after dinner until it closed. Wonderful time for both adults and kids. Very kind and took good care of us , thank you!

The lobster dinner here was fantastic. It was a bit pricey but you definitely didn't go away hungry. We had the option of a whole lobster or half lobster. They were prepared perfectly. Would definitely recommend this experience. After dinner entertainment included a limbo contest and dancing. It was a fun night.

Twelve of us had lobster dinners which of course were fresh and delicious. The service was super slow though...taking island time to a whole new level. Then at the end they quoted us a different price which was frustrating. There are so many great places for lobster....i wouldnt go back to this one.

We ate lobster almost every meal and this included 3 lobster dinners. This by far was sweetest and most succulent on the island ! Not to be missed!!!

What a great little beach bar/restaurant. You get to watch them catch the lobsters and grill them on the open fire. They are huge and cooked to perfection. We are charter crew and take our guests to Potters by the Sea all the time. We have never been disappointed and in fact, it just gets better and better. Picture the... More
