I cannot believe how amazing their ribs are, wish I had discovered much earlier in my trip.... but you can get ahead of the curve and make this your first stop. They don't open until 4:30

Myself and friend to buddies beach hut. Its pretty laid back and nice. We when to have dinner. Both of us tried the fish soup which we were told was the #1 seller. I think it was mahi mahi fish. There was a elder woman who served us and I must say she was very helpful and friendly.

Solid place with friendly service. Mahi mahi was tasty but under cooked, needed back on the grill. bbq ribs and chicken were so-so. The places on the strip serve similar food. The service was the best here.

We visited Buddies for dinner twice in our one week stay on St. Kitts. It is a definite "go back to" place. The authentic local food is amazing, the staff is friendly and attentive and the drinks, well just be prepared!

We ate here on the recommendation of someone who lives here. The waitress told us it's mostly locals who eat here. Non-locals need to discover this place. Our food was great. BBQ ribs and chicken are fantastic. My son had a fish sandwich- not fried- that he said was delicious. The chicken pasta was also very good. The service was... More

We went to Buddies with another couple. It was a nice casual restaurant with great seafood. You can pick out your own lobster and fish to grill. Great food!

The staff, the food, the open and friendly atmosphere. Great! Their location is also ideal. Place your order, take a swim and return to hot food. Perfect!

Food and service fine and reasonable portions. Drinks strong- reasonable price. We attempted a second visit but were forced back by the stink of raw sewage. It was dreadful. I feel sorry for the owners, probably not their fault.
