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.

Great sunset and beach meal

A mile walk from the Marriott or a quick cab. A nice relaxing meal on the beach with a great sunset view.

We had stopped at the Shiggady for lunch a few days earlier, the food was good but the service was slow. We knew about the bonfire party on Thursday night so decided to give it a try. We did order food , I had the Grouper which was delish and were really surprised how quickly it came, they must have... More

SO Disappointed. High pricing for food (lobster) compared to other restaurants on the strip. And Taste no where near compares. They advertise water taxis and sports. Bull. Couldn't even get anyone to assist. Service was horrible. They are the 1st hut on the beach, keep walking you will find better food and service.

Good basic snack food with some local flavour to it. Don't expect fast service as this place is slow - even by Caribbean standards and many of the waiting staff act like they don't really want to be there. On the beach and lively later in the evening. Worth a try if you have time on your hands.

On thursdays Shiggidy's serves you on the beach and has a bonfire at 7:30. The food is good and the drinks are ok, everything except the lobster is reasonably priced and they don't bring drawn butter so the lobster was dry. But it was a fun atmosphere.

We were last here four years ago. There are fewer dishes on the menu now but the quality and quantity is as good as ever. The wine was surprisingly good in a bar that serves mostly beer. The surroundings are as you would expect at the Shiggidy Shack with a view of the sea. Service was good and attentive.

TRAVIS TRAVIS TRAVIS! He makes this place rock. I watched him work from early morning until late at night...setting up the beach for the Thursday night party...he never stopped. What I most appreciated was his very friendly professionalism as a bartender. As a single woman at a beachfront bar, he welcomed me, watched over me and answered all my questions... More

On a trip to St. Kitts in March, my husband and I attempted to have lunch one day at Mr. X's Shiggidy Shack. The bartender told us that the chef had gone out for 10 or 15 minutes, and as we were not in a rush, we ordered a beer and waited. After about 40 minutes, and two ice cold... More
