We were drawn to Syd's by the amazing smell of barbeque. Unfortunately, we got there after they were already sold out of the Saturday-night special BBQ chicken. We had the fried chicken, shrimp kebobs, extra fries, a beer and a water for 22 USD. Pretty unbeatable! The food was great and the atmosphere in the backyard is very chill. We... More

Yep, normally hate the greasy stuff but this was really good. Hands were not covered in grease , coating was crispy, not soggy and although it took a small wait to come out (we were told in advance it would be half an hour by the waitress/fine) it was a good and really cheap meal. Thanks syds for showing me... More

We went here for dinner on our last night on the island & wished we would have discovered it sooner! I went with a party of 4 and we all enjoyed our dishes but I think the big winner was the fried chicken. My boyfriend got a 2 piece meal of this and declared it the best friend chicken he... More

We ordered the fried chicken with beans and rice. We had a late lunch and the place wasn't crowded so the service was fast. Really good fried chicken. Would go back if we had more time not he island.

Don't even think about ordering a burger here, go for the stewed chicken, rice & beans and coleslaw. It is AMAZING! If you are really hungry, order the ceviche to start (conch is my fav but sometimes it's out of season).

We went to Syd's based off the recommendation of several locals. It was a little slow, but then again we got there right at lunch when someone had just out in 10 to go orders with only one lady working the register. We both had the kabobs which were tasty, but nothing special. Upon sharing our "blah" experience with some... More

Can't speak for the rest of the items on the menu but fried chicken is their specialty and I consumed the entire quarter right down to the bones. I think it might be the best fried chicken I've ever had. Worth a detour.

We ate dinner here a couple of weeks ago. The chicken was good and the sides were plentiful. Decent value for the $$. The back yard patio was very nice and everyone was very friendly.

A local hangout on Middle Street, with great handmade food at a very reasonable price. Up front is the main dining area, which is bustling with people eating and locals arriving for a quick bite. In back is a courtyard dining area under an arbor that is shaded and cool(er) with good air flow. We had the stewed chicken with... More
