Soggy Dollar Transformed

At night the Soggy Dollar bar is transformed to a fine dining restaurant - it's romantic and the food is excellent! We ate there once during our visit, but we both agree we will go back more often when we make our next trip to Jost. The food is excellent - I had the fish special and my husband... read more

We reached the White Bay in our rented boat, spent afternoon on the beach (Soggy Dollar bar is great) and decided to have dinner on the Sandcastle. Small premises, very nice, quiet (as compared with madness on the beach during the afternoon). Food is great, and service is excellent. Definitely will return when back to BVI.

Staff and Owners were absolutely wonderful. They welcomed us like family. Could not have asked for a better Anniversary trip anywhere. If you get a chance to stay here please don't pass it up. You will not be disappointed. Have a painkiller and relax!!!!!

I love the food at sandcastle and go very often for lunch. The staff are wonderful and the management is awesome. My only grip about sandcastle...really soggy dollar, is that it is like a frat party every day. If that is your scene you will love it. Drunk vacation people (mostly very young) every where and it is often loud.... More

We love everything about the Sandcastle and Soggy Dollar Bar. We stayed 1 week and had the meal plan package. The food is great! Fresh, cooked to order. Different set breakfast daily, and a set menu for dinner but good selections. My favorite was the bull, it was like filet mignon. I don't eat beef but had this 3 times.... More

Enjoyed another amazing dinner at Sandcastle (Soggy Dollar Bar) on White Bay. In a delightful setting, with toes in the sand, we had a delicious meal prepared by Dwayne, the excecutive chef, with excellent service too. It's such a pleasure to enjoy an amazing meal in such a beautiful setting. Can't wait for the next one!

The meals we ate at the Sandcastle were very good, from the banana pancakes to the dinners, the service is good too. Stop by the bar to let them know you are joining for dinner.

We have had dinner here many times during the four different vacations we have taken on this island and I am a continually amazed by the entrees that comes out... More

Good food, great friendly service. Amazing spot. Best at dinner when the shipped in tours leave. Set on a beach with powder white sand we didn't even bother wearing shoes. We had a really memorable meal with the friendliest service. A must visit place.
