went one day for breakfast and one day for lunch. The breakfast is really cheap and worth the price. try the johnny cakes, they are great. Lunch was great too. Had a Cesar salad and a jerk chicken sandwich. the drinks were also great and they have a special for $1 Carib's all day long. Will definitely go back there... More

Busby's remains a great place to kick-back, relax, and forget the cares of the world. Enjoy the sound of the ocean and enjoy great company while consuming very good food. Great for couples as well as families. Excellent service with a great view. From light lunches to great Italian and seafood fare at dinner. Or simply enjoy a pizza. This... More

We were one of two tables and the waitress was gone for 20 minutes. When she returned she took orders and left. She came back with food and was asked for coffee refills, but those... More

We've been going to Mr Busby's for 5 years - on our annual trips to SXM. Food has always been decent and views great. Service has always been mediocre - but our recent experience has really put us off. The Friday night hostess was so nasty to me and my husband (our offense, pulling an extra chair over to our...

This is what you think of when you plan on a beach bar/restaurant. Can hear the ocean as you have a nice dinner. Lighter lunch menu also good. Did not appreciate the massive signs threatening to tow your car if you park there and don't eat there. This is the only place to park for access to the beach. Service... More

While we were waiting for our room to be ready for check in, we made our way to Mr. Busby's beach bar for lunch. We sat outside at a table overlooking the water and enjoyed a great lunch to start our vacation!

Were there a couple hours enjoying the atmosphere. Went back on a Saturday afternoon for lunch, service was slow, waiter was not polite, when it was time to pay we were... More
