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.

Hype

The shack is a very well promoted tourist attraction. It is a beach bar that is packed every night. If it is your first time on the island you should go.

Stopped in for a quick beer and it was not a pleasant visit. Firstly, when I asked how much I owed for two beers his automatic response was 10EC. Then he realised he was talking to a tourist and quickly said " no, no I meant to say 12EC. I paid him his original offer (every other bar, even the... More

We were referred to the Shiggidy Shack by many people and were told Thursday night was THE night to go. My family and I got there at 6:30 pm and were the second group of people there. We ordered two wing appetizers, drinks and our meals. The drink came soon enough but the wait for our food was intolerable. I... More

This place is for the party type. Food, drinks, atmosphere and staff are fantastic. You can rent beach chairs & umbrellas and relax as the water runs under your chair. Rum drinks are the best. See if they got "Kill Devil" rum. the strongest in the Carib.

Food was good when it finally came but it took a good 90 mins from ordering our food to it arriving at our table

This " joint" was really cool. Feet virtually hanging in the surf while enjoying local rum. More suited to the college crowd, we still enjoyed the laid back vibe of this little place.

Great atmosphere, nice food and reasonably priced. They also show football! We went for breakfast; it was delicious and generously portioned and the owner was very welcoming.

This is a hut on a beach that you may pass without a second glance.......Don't !! Go in order some food, settle at a picnic table on the beach and wait. Maybe grab a beer as you wait. This place barbecues their food in the hut and it is amazing. You may watch your lobster being delivered from a boat... More

it is a shack on the beach, but it serves the best grilled lobster on the planet, in relaxed beach atmosphere, with amazing sunsets over the Caribbean sea.

The location was great, the food was ok, the service was rude at best. The waitress couldn't even say hello. The food was brought out slowly (might be a Caribbean time thing) but she seemed annoyed to have to help us. This happened to everyone she contacted with the exception of the locals that she knew. I can't say that... More
