Everybody talks about Santanna's in the island and it makes you think it must be the greatest place ever. Then you get there, and it doesn't look like it... until you order some food! then you understand what people were talking about. We tried all dishes available that day. They were all great. But the grouper killed it. We were... More

We loved this place! The people were so nice and wonderful! The lobster was really good too and pretty inexpensive ($30?) for lobster. The place is open and airy and right on the beach with a beautiful view. Don't forget to go to the bakery next door and get the coconut bread. We actually bought an extra loaf to bring... More

We were tired of the hotel food so we rented a car and stopped at Santanna's. WOW is my only comment. The food was awesome and it's so nice to interact with locals. Santanna is so talkative and loves to tell stories and hear about you. The prices are really reasonable but take cash.

A must for Lobster lovers. You will never have a better Lobster Tail anywhere. $22.00 get you 2 large lobster tails with sides. It was enough for 2 people to share. Rent a vehicle (cannot get lost) and make the trip to Santanna's if you have time, will not regret thr trip.

On our boat docked at Georgetown YC. Rented a car and immediately drove south to Williams Town. It's about 40 minutes of nice drive and then there on the left is Santanna's Grill Pit. We parked and ordered two awesome lobster lunches $22 each. Lobster as mentioned by others was the best I have ever had. Sides were cole slaw,... More

We had the lobster and the grouper here. They serve it with onions (not sure if I'd call them caramelized but they were sweet and very yummy) It was a very long drive from where we were tying, but it was sooooo worth it. The Goombay Smashes were delicious and we dragged the resin adirondack chairs down to the water... More
