Dinner by the sea

we love to go to this restaurant every year and are always happy that we did. The food is delicious and the ambience is truly amazing with a table by the sea. Great staff. I had their "culinary award winning" Red Snapper fillet in Creole sauce. I absolutely loved it and I am not a big fish eater... read more

Every year that we visit St Maarten we make several trips to Mr. Busby's for both lunch and dinner. The food is delicious and the menu has a wide variety of choices. We have always received a friendly greeting, friendly waitor/waitress advising the daily specials and taking our order; however, once you receive your food the service stops and the... More

A fantastic place to go for drinks where you are really close to the ocean. We ended our night here, but wish we would have gone earlier in the day so we could watch the sunset. Perfect place for a relaxing drink.

VERY busy on Valentine's Day and our first night on the island. Atmosphere and view from our table were great, service was a bit confusing as staff in charge of many tables, hence confusion as to who was doing what at which table. Not so much an issue for us but seemed to be bad experience for some surrounding tables.... More

This was a hard review, because my food was great-really great, and my husband's-not so much. We had originally gone there for Lobster as we had met Miriam the owner the night before. She told us how great her lobster was. Well, after being around the Sunset beach bar area all day, we were very surprised to find that this... More

We went for Happy Hour and the drinks were reasonable. Daniels is right on Dawn Beach and our granddaughter had fun playing in the sand while we were enjoying the scenery.

Returned to Mr. Busby's for breakfast and was not disappointed. I had mr Busby's version of a McDonalds McMuffin...an English muffin with a fried egg and Canadian bacon...skipped the cheese :) the coffee was hot and it's always nice to enjoy such a nice view! Service was Island time...kinda slow...

We usually just get a pizza to go from the wonderful takeout shop that is attached to the restaurant but this time we decided to eat at the restaurant. My husband had his regular pizza which was excellent but I had the special fish of the day which was tough with watery vegetables. The place was full and service was... More
