A real find, the food was amazing and so was the service, we went back again and again. I had the grouper fish risotto one night, the Red Snapper another night and the Sea food platter on the final night. It was the first time I had, had a sea food platter but I was so at ease with Debbie... More

We walked down from the Marriott on the advice of another couple, and we're glad we did. I ordered the salmon and my wife had the shrimp appetizer. The service was fast and friendly, the food was served quickly, and the presentation was beautiful. My Salmon was pan fried, and my potatoes were breaded & deep fried, and delicious. Couldn't...

Celebrated a friend's birthday at Rock Lobster this week. The servers were wonderful and we had a great time laughing and joking with them. They paid great attention to us, and made sure we had everything we wanted. The food came out all at once - no mean feat, given the size of our party - and it was wonderfully... More

Food was good but way overpriced. However, all the restaurants here are overpriced. Service was good. One of the best meals I had in St. Kitts. Most restaurants here are terrible with terrible service but this one was way better than most. I would come back.

Excellent service and food. Went the last day of our vacation and wished we had time to go back. Wait staff was very attentive. Scallop appetizer was amazing. Would highly recommend.

Funny this place is called Rock Lobster? I got a surf n' turf and the lobster was overcooked and tiny? Steak with garlic butter sauce and the garlic mashed potatoes were super, however, lighten up on the garlic chef! I will be tasting it for at least a day! A little goes a long way, the same as truffle oil!... More

Dinner for two, lobster cakes are fantastic and main courses just as good. It's just a bit over priced.

I went here for my last evening meal on St Kitts, with my friends who had hosted me for the week. The Calamari starter was very nice, as was the mixed seafood fettuccine. The bottle of white was good too. All in all good meal and a pleasant atmosphere. Staff were generally good - one guy seemed a little distant... More
