“Lee you better look at your restaurant - it is terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

We went for lunch on 12/31/2011. Place was not crowded. It took over 2 hours for lunch.
We waited 20 minutes before order was taken for drinks and then another 20 minutes to get the drinks. Waitress was uninterested in serving us.
We were just off the plane; brought some friends, who never have been to SXM. This was a disaster first meal.
We ordered ribs, snapper, mahi mahi and hamburger. Food took over 1 hour, closer to 1 1/2 hour to come to us. Ribs were OK; fish taste like charcoal lighter fluid was used to cook it and no hamburger came. Then 20 minutes later a hamburger tasting same as fish like lighter fluid arrived. Burger King is down the street; we should have went there.
Waitress comped a round of drinks due to the long wait.
We have been to Lee's before and it has been good. Lee wake up -your place is terrible from service to food to even atmosphere. Clean the bathrooms; they are disgusting.

“Best food on the island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Having been to SXM 4 times, we always look forward to having lunch/dinner at Lee's. The atmosphere is wonderful and the service is always friendly. The food is incredible - the snapper fillet is always a favourite! The ribs, chicken, and grilled wahoo are also excellent choices. The portion sizes are generous, and there are drink specials for each day of the week. Definitely a must-visit restaurant on the island.

“Expected better.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Everyone raved about how good it was but the night we were there, the service was terrible-to the point that people were leaving because they weren't getting served. The food was ok, nothing great.

we had 2 excellent meals here, the service is prompt even when busy. Lots of "special" nights, deals on drinks & beer. Ribs are excellent.

“Great lobster and seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

The lobster and seafood is as good as you will find on the Island. The ribs and other food are equally as good. Staff is very friendly, service excellent, owner is there most nights and is really attentive and they have music and dancing as well. Environment is rustic but that just adds to the evening's experience. This is another restaurant that we never miss on our visits .
