Lobster was perfect!

We thought we could all eat a large order of lobster but we couldn't!! It was delicious and we were stuffed! Loved that we could play our own bartender and just write down what we drank. Do use bug spray before you come. It is the Caribbean though. So there will be bug bites occasionally!

I went to Abe's many years ago and had the best lobster ever. The people were phenomenal and the food couldn't be beat. Imagine 5 star food in a home kitchen environment. I highly recommend

A group of 6 went here for lobster on January 26th. We were the only people in the "restaurant" so that should have told us something was not right. We all had the lobster and it was not cheap. Within 24 hours of eating three of the 6 people were very, very ill. The other three did not feel good... More

What a great place, with fresh lobster and family atmosphere. We were going to go to Harris's or Sydney's, but after pulling in to pay our mooring fee decided to just stay and eat at Abe's. A local small place that not everyone has been to. We were able to help ourselves to the bar and write down what we... More

Stayed in White Bay and took 30 minutes to get to Abe's by taxi. The service was great, lobsters were very good, but a little chewy...honor bar was well stocked. Four adults all had lobster and a few drinks was $325. We could have easily gotten away with 2 medium or 3 small lobsters and saved a few bucks, but... More

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
