Sumptuous Saturday buffet

I was pleasantly surprised a couple Saturdays ago when we showed up and found a very delicious buffet spread! Situated on the water, the atmosphere here is lovely and romantic.

Loved being able to dance with my Hubby during dinner. The food tasted great & our service was excellent. Restrooms were clean. Was a bit pricey but well worth it.

Nice place if you looking for atmosphere, but the food was ordinary. Nothing was amazing just kind of blah and for the price there are much better options.

Although a bit difficult to find, it was worth it to have a quiet lunch. Parking attendants were great, helping everyone fit into tiny spaces on the property. Food was excellent. View was great fun. Fish swimming below the deck and observable through glass floor also were entertaining. Place gets great reviews and deserves it.

After a day on the ferry to St. Barths from St. Martin we decided to catch dinner immediately after departing the ferry. Very quiet and unassuming. Dishes were tasty (Chicken and White Fish) and portion size was plentiful. Cost seemed to be quite fair. Upside down apple pie was delicious.

Captain Oliver's is a great setting on Oyster Pond. Service was slow and food was fairly good but over priced. Recommended more for lunch then dinner. Enjoy the fish sandwich and salad. Not a place for small children.

This restaurant is right on the water at Captain Olivers Resort. It was delicious and had the nicest staff. After dinner, there is a separate area for after dinner drinks. Then you can walk around the marina and enjoy the boats and the views on Oyster Pond. Just park in the area for the hotel. It is kind of out... More

We stumbled across this wonderful restaurant while looking for a nice bite to eat on Sunday for lunch. The location was perfect, right on the water overlooking the marina and the boats. The service was nice (fancy, but shorts allowed) and they had a nice two-piece band playing over brunch. Menu was extensive and brunch offering, if desired, was fabulous... More

One place we saw said that Saturday night was a lobster buffet, including many other things, but there was no lobster when we went. It was a buffet, but no lobster. That was ok, but my husband had wanted to try lobster while we were there, and he didn't get to since they didn't have it. There were a lot... More
