You can't beat the view, the food, drinks and service at the Big Kahuna Rum Shack! Isis was our waitress and she was fantastic! We stop there every time we are on the island. Great food, atmosphere, music and staff. If you want to have a great time with fun folks, you can't beat this place!

After hearing good reviews about Big Laguna rum shack. My sister and I thought, "let's try it out, the menu looks good." We went in and was greeted by a waitress who obviously didn't want to be working or cared to pro die good customer service to get patrons. Next we ordered and didn't see her until our drinks came...

Stopped in for lunch because Greengos was out of pork for my favorite pork quesadillas. Our waitress was indifferent and callous. When we first walked through the door to find out if we should seat ourselves, our waitress looked at us like we were from another planet and greeted us with a very coarse "do you need something?" We should... More

On the way to airport on Saturday for early lunch, only place that opens before 11:00 we could find. Great burger and flatbread. Open air bar/eating area is nice. Quick service and friendly waitress!

The view is magical. The food was great. The cocktail was a bit expensive but it was magical. The burgers are massive and for the price delicious.

We visited this ace a couple of times this vacation as we had been customers previously. Wecr back to see the bartender Layla and have some drinks. The large bowl of the most delicious looking and sweet smelling Grapefruits and Oranges one has ever seen is sitting on the bar right next to the juicer. Our vodka-grapefruit were incredible.

After a hot trek along the waterfront, the drinks are cold, but a bit expensive. Be prepared for the 18% tip to be added on the bill, so don't tip twice! The clean toilet is down the hall, but note the need to "tip" to use it.

Visited this restaurant whilst on the Oasis of the Seas on Tuesday, August 12th. Isis was our server and the food and drinks were very good. Service was excellent. Will visit there again when I make it that way.

We read Trip Advisor and this place was highly ranked, so we tried it. It's nothing fancy, we sat outside and the only negative was the smell of trash nearby. The hamburger was great, one of the best I have ever had in the Caribbean. The waitress, Isis, did a great job serving us and she kept our coke glasses... More
