Description: we used this Breeze Bar situated right on the beach for lunch & dinner, the speciality was the whole lobster but we choose the fresh prawns with pleanty of trimmings. A lot of people use the Shack from the cruise boats at lunchtime then many local people hix in with the Marriot Hotel gests for dinner. Thursday nights are perticularly populary as they have a bonfire on the beach (no trouble with smoke as the wind is always off shore in high season) Friday & Saturday evening can be crowded and it is advised to book early on these days, Reasonable prices and good portions, book for a beach table if you want to hear yourself heard, Also does boat trips/ sport fishing, loverly sunsets if you get thier before 6pm.

A great St. Kitts experience is the Shiggidy Shack. The food is just bar food; and not very good, but the experience is the thing. Went on Thursday for the band, fire eater, local dancers and beach bonfire.

We arrived at Shiggidy Shack on Thursday at the suggestion of Calvin our driver who knows everything happening on the island. We were with our 12 year old sons and he thought they would really like the entertainment at the restaurant. He was definitely correct. The kids were thrilled by the performances. The sunset at the beach was very beautiful.... More

Shiggidy Shack is place you have to go to so you can get the island experience. We were told by several people not to miss. We got there around 7:30pm. (they do not take reservations) It is on the bay and you sit at folding tables and picnic tables. However, food was really good and not as costly as other... More

We didn't eat here, but did stop of drinks on several occasions. Our group always had a good time. Some bartenders somewhat reserved, but others know how to get the party started.

Food is OK, sometimes overcooked. Located right on the beach, live music. Personally, I would opt for sunset cafe.

During our stay at St. Kitts, we ate mainly at beach bars (shacks). Shiggidy was our least favorite. It was good, just not as good as the others.

Food and drinks were very good and the dancers and Fireman were very entertaining. Great to hear a live reggae band. Island is not known for nightlife but this is the place to go on Thursday night.

The food here is very good and you have to try the Pina Colada......excellent!!! You get plenty of food as you sit at a picnic table on the beach listening to the waves as you wait for your food. Great place to enjoy authentic Caribbean food at very reasonable prices!

This was on my list of things to do based on all of the reviews on TripAdvisor. We were told repeatedly by others to not eat here and just go to Cathy's instead and come here for the entertainment. We took their advice. After a delicious meal at Cathy's, we strolled over here and the place was packed. We thought... More
