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.

My wife and I literally stumbled upon Kicks after the place we wanted to go to was closed for the season. As we were walking by, my wife happened to see the billboard menu outside, so we stopped to check it out...I am so glad we did! The menu is all local, hand crafted foods with a local chef. We...

The staff was very friendly and attentive, but watching the owner in action was less than savory. If you want to hear a man make comments about women half his age while you're eating then I guess it's fine. He also has an adorable puppy that women love so..there you go.

Please accept my apology for any comments that I shared while you were dinning at Licks regarding a young lady. It is not my policy, as well as, the staffs to comment about other people. It reminds me to be more thoughtful and conscientious regarding what is said to others. As a restaurant owner and former psychologist I understand how... 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.

So sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your milkshake or smoothie. Typically are milkshakes are definitely made with ice cream so I am not sure why ice cream would not have been used. We will make sure to address this with all staff so that everyone is properly trained with how to make the drinks. We appreciate your... More

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 you're just arriving on the Caye via... More

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
