I have reviewed this as part of Pinney's Beach. It has lost all of it's reputation and more. Parts of it are in a state of abandon, it seems to have more than a fair share of stoned, drunk or hungover rasta's, all hanging out and some purporting to be 'staff'. The music is way too loud and is intrusive... More

Entire experience could not have been worse. First of all, it's dirty. Very dirty. Next, the wait staff is so unfriendly! We had read so many good things about this place we were excited to go for lunch, but the entire staff acted as though they didn't want us there. A lot of mumbling, dirty looks, and one word responses.... More

Let me start by saying that we are very flexible and able to accommodate "island" time. Our group of 8 went for lunch earlier this month. The waitstaff was rude, slow, and annoyed. Lots of men around but one waitress did all the work--not sure if they were scared of her or just unhelpful. Three apps ordered--only one appeared. More... More

This is what Caribbean beach bars are all about but Sunshine's made us particular happy with the really friendly and efficient service, the excellent food and the most perfect location on such a lovely beach. The music was playing, the sun was shining and the happy atmosphere was contagious. It was a particularly hot day when we had lunch and... More

Everything you read about in the other reviews are spot on. Food is excellent for a beach restaurant. We had lobster, whole fish, bbq ribs, and jerk chicken wings, and all were first rate. The Killer Bee is not as deadly as it's reputation states, but it sure is tasty. My only complaint, and it's tempered by the fact that... More

We visited Sunshine's as we'd read about it in our guidebook, plus it was only a short walk along Pinney's Beach from our hotel. I had the "world famous" Killer Bee cocktail and my husband had a beer. Firstly, it was so much cheaper than the hotel, the rum-based cocktail being less than a third of the price we'd been... More

The food was fantastic, the Killer Bee is a little overrated, but still worth the experience. My only criticism would be of the medical students that chose to hang out there. They were rude and obnoxious.

My friend had been here year's before and wanted me to try the killer bee. Wow! I don't know what they put in it but it is strong! This place is charming. There are colorful tables to sit on and colorful characters to people watch. I enjoyed the little animal cages they have. A family of monkeys let themselves out... More

Great lazy lunch in a lively restaurant. The seafood is superb. There is often conch which is delicious I do not know anywhere else that serves it. Sunshine himself is there and he is a true character.
