Lip smacking margarita shrimp

Love the buffalo margarita shrimp, one of the best things I've ever eaten! Have tried to replicate and never was able to. Andy passed away before he shared the recipe with me. From our first visit to St Martin more than 14 years ago we not only fell in love with the food but the owners. Great... read more

I meet the owner Cheryl, as I step up 3 little wood steps, into an open air small clean restaurant, sitting on Orient Beach. I came early in the day and Cheryl gave us seats on the beach while she brought us drinks, ( Pina Colodas) etc. After we swam in the ocean, took a stroll on the Famous Beach.... More

We have been coming to St. Martin for over 30 years. The best food on the island is this NJ restaurant next to a nude beach. The sauce with the clams or mussels is to die for. Be warned that u must order the mussels or clams early or they will be gone. Don't fret, the grouper salad or sandwich,... More

It is a beach restaurant, but you will be hard pressed to find a better meal anywhere! Buffalo margherita shrimp is killer, the grouper dish outstanding. But the mussels are the best I have ever had, anywhere! Cheryl has them flown in from Prince George Island on Tuesdays. I swear there were fifty of them in my bowl today! $17... More

Best beach bar on the island! The food is fabulous and the service is great. Cheryl is friendly and attentive and it feels like a cozy neighborhood bar, but with a gorgeous view! We had both the red and white mussels with delicious crusty garlic toast. They were tender and juicy, and the best I've ever had, Anywhere! The white... More

Cheryl and Andy's has been on Orient Beach for years and even though, Andy passed away several years ago this place remains everything I love about a beach bar: dive atmosphere, wooden floors, license plates for décor, open kitchen, sand everywhere and a magnificent view. But if you've read me before, the food has to be there too. Well, A&C's... More

Best burger I've found on the island! Cheryl and Andy are definitely two personalities! They often come out and talk to the customers...ask for a hug from Cheryl and you're sure to get a big one! We go there at least once every visit to St. Maarten even though it's at the opposite end from Simpson Bay. This is a... More

This is probably the best place on the beach for a home-style breakfast. My husband had the blueberry pancakes...YUM! I had a bacon/cheese omelet with home fries that was to die for. Cheryl, as usual, was her charming self; engaging in conversation and making us feel like she's known us forever. In 2013 we happened to stop in for lunch.... More
