Just down the beach from Soggy Dollar at White Bay. Same great beach, less crowds. Same good drinks, but you make your own! Your can have two by the time you get one next door. The Roti was very tasty and filling. Nice folks.

Gertrudes shares the same beautiful beach as Soggy Dollar Bar. Gertrudes lets you make your own Painkiller! You decide how much rum and how much mixer -- winner, winner! Delicious roti, too (thanks, Captain Jared for this recommendation!)

Decided to try out Gertrude's based on some insider advice and avoid crowds at Soggy Dollar next door and what a find! We aided in making our own drinks and visited with bar tender who was most jovial. Great little place with a true island vibe! Not to be missed!

Such friendly staff and a-m-a-z-i-n-g Pina Coladas. Food was good. You're on island time so relax while they prepare your food and drinks. Will be back!!

Great seating indoors when the sun is too fierce. Food is good and quick. The beer is ice cold but my recommendation id the BBC, Baileys, Banana Creme and coconut rum.

Gertrudes is right next to The Soggy Dollar. We slid down because we thought we'd get lunch a little quicker there as it was less crowded. Turned out to be a smart move. Great food, and what could be better than pouring your own Painkiller?!? Highly recommended.
