My entire family went to Abe's while on a boating vacation in the BVI. There were 18 of us. We ordered 9 lobsters and 4 orders of ribs. While the lobsters were fresh and tasted delicious, they were a bit over cooked. The ribs and sides were delicious. Great atmosphere with an honor bar. Tip: The lobsters are so large... More

Make sure you have your hotel call ahead and arrange for your lobster to be caught that day! We each had a 4lb. lobster, the largest, by far that I have ever eaten anywhere. The setting is simple, rustic with warm friendly service. You sit next to the water on Little Harbor. If you want a drink, you go to... More

3 couples dined at Abe's in Littler Harbor, Jost Ban Dyke, and was treated to the most fabulous lobster we had ever tasted. They were huge weighing over 2 pounds and served perfectly with a delicious butter sauce. The cole slaw and rice were perfectly matched to the fresh lobster. We were served outside on the pier and all had... More

Had a large lobster and some curry chicken. Both were excellent. Usually not very crowded, so could be a great place if you are trying to have a very peaceful meal. Eunicey also rents cars on the island.

This restaurant is right on the shore in Little Harbor with a dock where boats can come in, tie up and have a great meal --- the best lobster on the island !!! You need to call ahead for reservations. It is a very relaxed atmosphere and the staff is courteous, friendly and prompt. Yeah, you may have to get... More

You want to eat where the locals eat? You want a huge lobster for dinner? You want the best location, seaside, for dinner? You need to get over to Abe's for dinner! Everyone there is so friendly. Service is quick and everything is absolutely delicious. Call ahead for reservations.

Our cab driver called ahead and "pre-ordered" our food. However, when we got there we couldn't get ahold of anyone to help us. They don't have traditional servers, you pour your own drinks and grab your own beers from the bar and wait to tell the man to mark it in a notebook. Our group of eight wanted individual plates...

We are here now and Abe's lobster restaurant is in Garner Bay on the water; not inland like the app is showing. Beautiful sunsets and Christmas lights.

Wonderful dinner, we like it because it is run by the locals and not the standard resort experience. Food, service and atmosphere was wonderful and the lobster was excellent. It should be rated #1 on Jost Van Dyke!

Enough said! You just cannot beat lobster fresh out of the traps right beside the dock that your table is sitting on!! The rice and slaw that were served with the lobster were fabulous as well! We were so glad our awesome taxi driver, Claude, insisted on this dinner stop. He even called ahead to preorder for us and then... More
