“A MUST!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Where else can you be a few hundred feet from Mega yachts sailing through an opened bridge with a cocktail in your hand setting on a deck? We sailed into Simpson Bay a few years ago and when we had a long layover at the airport decided to hop a cab and have a drink and some food. BEST SEARED TUNA EVER!!! Love this place....great local characters (a REAL captain Morgan). You must stop in especially during the winter season when all the mega yachts are in the lagoon!

“Nice Place for a Drink”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Although we did not eat here, we did stop by for drinks. It’s a fairly nice setting right next to the Simpson Bay Bridge. Menu is of the pub variety.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

One of my favorite places on the island. A great breeze right off the marina and a friendly staff! Coconut shrimp, fish and chips(made with grouper), and the lemon coconut grouper are a few of my favorites!

“Quick stop for drinks but the view and service were great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

We walked past this place several times on our way back and forth in St. Maarten and finally stopped for a drink one evening before dinner. It is by the draw bridge and has a great view of the water and the big boats coming and going. We had the margaritas, they were very good and some buffalo chicken bites which were great also.
The bar was very lively and it had a local vibe. An all around great bar. I'm glad we stopped in, this was a great find.

“Good the first visit, not so good the second visit.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Our first visit was good. Wife had the Drunken pancakes, and I had an omelet with two glasses of orange juice. Bill with tip was 41.00. The service was good, and my wife's pancakes were very good. We went back for more pancakes on 07-06-14, and waited for over 20 minutes while watching the two waiters socialize with the kitchen staff. As we were walking out a male waiter came running out. We told him we were leaving. It was not busy while we were there.
