Great food in a casual beachfront atmosphere. A must stop when in the area. The staff was courteous and attentive. A great place to just come and hang

Walking distance from the Viceroy, so we stopped here for a bite to eat. Really good drinks (I ordered a Miami vice with a floater) and delicious food. The convenience of it being so close to the Viceroy was nice, and the prices were slightly less.

This place is a staple on the island but not one of those tourist traps. The food is actually excellent. It's perfectly placed on Mead's Bay and views at Sunset are gorgeous. Go early and enjoy a drink at sunset and stay for dinner. The food here is some of the best we had on the island. Lobster and Shrimp... More

The Straw Hat is an awesome restaurant on the beach with high end food and nice views. They do a nice job and have a long-standing reputation for good quality food and great service.

Stopped by the Straw Hat for a drink prior to heading back to our hotel, after spending the day on Mead's Bay. We met another couple at our hotel who had stayed on Mead's Bay and raved about the Straw Hat. They had eaten dinner there twice the prior week and said it was their favorite place to go. Wish...

We have been for both lunch and dinner and both did not disappoint! The food was absolutely delicious and the location (right on the beach) cannot be beat. Get the plantain chips!

I enjoyed shrimp and vegetables that were perfect. But the best part of the meal was the caramelized bananas served with vanilla ice cream. I think I should have started with the dessert. The wait staff was awesome too!!

Everything about this restaurant, from the location on the beach on beautiful Meads Bay to the food and service, is great. We had a delicious tuna carpacio appetizer and lobster that was fantastic.
