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.

Having been to the Shack during our last trip, I was looking forward to going this time around. As we asked people about it, there seemed to be less enthusiasm about it. One of the locals told us it is not really the place to go on the strip anymore. We went there on a Friday night, and it was... More

Quiet, yet awesome. Right on the beach, servers are great, and make you smile. Will defiantly be back.

Went here because it still has good travel write-ups. What a disappointment. Didn't want to sit in the sand and we were relegated to second class customers. The few tables they have that are not on the sand don't even have a view of the beach. They face the back of the place next to the kitchen. Waitress didn't even... More

Slow service and expensive. While the view is wonderful the tables are crowded. Seems like a tourist trap. Better choices in St Kitts

I definitely won't be back. The service was terrible. Our waitress was inattentive and didn't even apologize for taking nearly 25 minutes before taking our order and another 30 mintues or so just to deliver it. I went with my Mom and she ordered a margarita. It was watery and came in a small plastic cup. She ordered the lobster... More

OK, this is one of nine or so bars along the beach. Its the only one without a TV, It has swivel seats that are torn. Its serves spirits in plastic cups. It really is a shack and I totally get it. The food is good, the measures generous and the music is eclectically great. And then there's bonfire night.... More

Great place, lobster was really good. Pricey, weak and small quantity of punch compared to other bars on the strip. Staff not as jolly as most places. OK tho!

We went to the Shiggidy Shack on a Thursday night, tourist night. We went early and were quickly seated. Our waitress seemed slightly inconvenienced by our presence, but was still attentive to our needs. We has the shiggidy jigg, a rum punch that was pretty weak. I had fish and chips and my sisters had the veggie burgers. The food... More
