We have a big group of 35! We have been enjoying Abe's for 15 years! Best lobsters on the islands! Unbelievable service and great friendly people! The location is so beautiful too!

True Story. Been sailing the British Virgin Islands for 30 years. As often as not I've sailed into Little Harbor on Jost Van Dyke and settled in at Abe's By the Seas. While the food quality here has been in decline for some time, this time a living hell. Made the mistake of ordering the steak dinner, the absolute worst... More

If you want a great lobster dinner this is the place. Had gone to Taboo for lunch but they had stopped serving and they recommended Abes. Beautiful location with picnic tables on the dock where we ate. Very friendly service however they are on island time so we relaxed.. Had a drink with an honor bar... Picked live lobster out...

Excellent food, very good service. We were being attacked by mosquitos --they had bug spray available for us, and found a fan to blow some of those pesky fliers away. Great place for lobster

Food was awesome. Best we had on our trip around the BVIs during NYE week. The interesting part is you just write down what you want on a pad of paper and go behind the bar and make your own drinks. They use the honor system.

Ended up mooring in front of Abe's so decided to eat here. Wasn't unhappy . Although very expensive , the lobster couldn't have been tastier or fresher . So awesome . Served with rice, corn, Cole slaw ( all very tasty) and they start you with a nice garden salad . Drinks are "make your own, with an honor system... More

A friend of mine organized a buffet lunch here of Caribbean lobster, bbq chicken, steam fish, rice, salad, corn and I think there was west indian potato salad. Everything I ate was sooooo delish. They have a signature drink called Painkilla (ohhhhh you feel no pain after a couple of those). The restaurant is vintage looking but very clean and... More

The food was great, the atmosphere is awesome. We sat at a picnic table on the small pier outside the restaurant. The portions were enormous. They operate the bar on the honor system - you make your own drinks and then write down what you had. This was big fun! sharing your experiences, you're helping travelers make better choices and...

Abe's is a laid back island restaurant located at the boat dock at Little Harbour. The specialty of the house is Caribbean lobster served with salad, rice, corn and cole slaw. Wine, beer, soft drinks are available. The servers are friendly, the restaurant has island style, and the food is absolutely delicious! The meal was one of the highlights of... More

We went with a group from Peter Island to Jost and had lunch at Abe's. Didn't know what to think when we docked but immediately loved it. Staff was busy cooking the lobster for us (we called ahead with our orders) so we tended our own bar and kept a log of what we drank. Very chill spot with incredible... More
