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.

Good food, but service was on island time. We were hungry and arrived at 5:30, but they weren't really "open" yet. Not for another 30 minutes. They did say they could make us food if we wanted fish. So fish it was (which is what we wanted anyway). The food had good flavor, not GREAT, but good. The wait staff... More

Great spot to hang out at night and drink the local Carib beer or rum punch. VERY informal, as the name implies, but great place to meet and mingle and a favourite for locals and visitors. Look out for the weekly beach bonfire party - I think it was on Thursdays.

The most unfriendly service imaginable and only average food made this a disappointment given some of the earlier reviews. They seem to trade on their proximity to Timothy Beach Resort. Could do better!

We went on Thursday for dinner and to see the fire dancers that are so highly promoted. Dinner was ok, slow service but we knew that going in. We got there around 7 pm so we could eat before the entertainment started. Left a little after 9:30 when the fire dancer still hadn't appeared.

We took a taxi over to the Shiggidy Shack from the Marriott. All 4 of us (2 adults/2 teens) enjoyed our lunch and the meals were very reasonably priced in comparison to other island spots. Since it's St. Kitts, the service was slow, but if you know that before you go, you shouldn't have a problem. The ribs and chicken... More

Second time here and our last time. Waited over an hour for our salads and another 45 minutes for our meal. Menu says taxes and gratuities included. Not what the waitress said. She said don't believe what is printed on the menu. Too bad for her since I was going to throw her an extra tip. Felt totally ripped off... More

Billed as a tourist location to visit it lives up to its reputations as being on the beach and having fairly good fare. Expect slow service so you must be patient. Views are great.

Bonfire, band and the "Fire" man on a Thurs night. Great atmosphere. Get there early for a seat on the beach. Good prices for buckets of beer. Food looked great but didn't eat here as ate at Reggae Beach just prior.

Picnic tables and sand with good rum. There is a bon fire on some night too. Not fancy just plain fun. Short walk from Marriott
