Our dishes are made fresh daily. We have a large variety of delicious seafood, beef, chicken and pork dishes. Our desserts are as special as our savory ones. We are situated on the beach in front of the Belize Water Express at the end of their dock. We cater to locals and tourist alike. We only create dishes of seafood that have been caught and delivered to us fresh from the local fishermen here in San Pedro and you may see them deliver this fresh fish to us while you are enjoying a refreshing drink or eating a meal from our kitchen. You can indulge in some fresh Sashimi or Poki Tuna while sitting here and enjoying a clear view of the second most longest Reef in the world only half a mile away. We do make fresh vegetarian foods as well for the customers that choose not to eat fish or any meats. Please note: We do take credit cards.

Multiple meals - July 2015

LOVED Lick's, Dale & his staff. Enjoyed EVERY meal we had -- breakfast, lunch & dinner. The views were also great. From sitting in the water, to hanging on the front patio during a downpour, we were always well taken care of, well fed, and looking forward to another chance to visit. Whether... read more

They have NO CLUE how to make a milk shake! It was just milk and a flavoring. No icecream! Same thing for a smoothie. Just milk and pineapple in a blender.

Stopped for a quick lunch on upstairs patio (driven there by reviews) and wished we had gone back to Fido's... My son loved the fish and chips with fresh coleslaw, my daughter liked the fried chicken ok but said the zucchini tasted fishy like they shared oil with fish. My chicken nachos (appetizer for lunch) were a pile-on of ingredients.... More

This place was directly off the dock from the water taxi. The owner was at the door greeting everyone that walked by. We spoke and walked on but before we left the island we stopped in and had Johnny Cakes and Coke. They were very good. The owner was very hospitable and talked to us a good bit. Neat little... More

Spent several meals at Licks. Had BBQ chicken and lobster dipped in butter/garlic sauce...so yummy. The prices are inline with expectations and the beer is cold, what more can you ask? If you can find a table on the second floor, the view is awesome! As a bonus, Dale the owner, is friendly and helpful on getting you accustomed to... More

I had their BBQ combo platter with porkchop, chicken and sausage, what a deal for this huge portion, and it was amazing!!! My wife had the grilled lobster which was equally as good. The owners are the friendlies people and Dale even put a table right in the water so we could have our feet in the surf while we... More

Right on the beach you can sit downstairs or up. We ate here twice. Simple but flavorful menu with fresh healthy option and cold drinks made our long lunch super enjoyable. Owners and other locals were very welcoming.

We stopped at this place when we arrived on the island. It's located right by the water taxi drop off. The rum punch has very fresh ingredients but needs more alcohol!

We stopped there for a lunch and weren't deceived. The food is excellent and the whole team was very nice with the kid. It was a great long lunch with a truly island mood.

If there's one place I would recommend to eat while in San Pedro, it's Lick's Beachside Cafe. Whether you're stopping in for a quick beer or cocktail, or sitting down for a delicious seafood dinner, this casual dining experience is a must. It offers seating directly on the beach, on the porch, or up above on the balcony with a... More
