“Potter's does it best on Anegada!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Had such a great experience in 2004 that we made it a point to return again this year. After a day of some of VI's best snorkeling we were starving. Dinner was wonderful - delicious, fresh lobster- and Potter and his staff were as welcoming as ever! This place is worth the trip! Hope to return again soon.

“Poor service but great party”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We got in too late to make a reservation but they were willing to let us dine regardless. If they would have told us they would put us far away in the corner next to the grill where not one staff member assisted us, we would have decided to dine else where. We were left to go to the bar when we wanted even a water. When we chose our entrees, the menu said we get to choose our side. When we stopped a staff member to tell them we needed to tell them which sides we wanted, we were told to not worry about it. They selected the sides we were having and set 2 tiny baked potatoes on the tables for 8 of us to share.

Overall--there are better places to spend your money but the Owner Sam is a very nice man and the bar/after party area is quite entertaining. My recommendation, have dinner at another location but come back to after to party at the beach bar.

“Great service, great lobster”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We were greeted by Sam who came out in his dingy as we were taking a mooring ball. He serenaded us and convinced us to eat at Potter's instead of our previous plan. His friends at the bar entertained us in the afternoon, and we had a splendid lobster dinner, cooked over charcoal, on the waterfront in the evening. This dinner was one of the highlights of our BVI cruise. We would definitely return.

“Back again in May”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We visited beautiful Anegada again this past month and of course we had to stop by and see Sam, Potter, Elba, Robert and the rest of the gang.This time we brought friends of ours who had never been there and they fell in love with the place. Dinner was amazing and as always the staff was entertaining, fun and very customer oriented. If you ever go to Anegada, and you would be crazy not to when in the BVI, Potters is a must-visit even if it's just to lime a lil bit and enjoy the scenery and the people.

“Perfect setting by the water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Fun setting across from the mooring field. We had an enjoyable and dinner and then stayed for dancing. The fresh caught fish was excellent. Be sure to call ahead to tell them what you want and which seating. The only complaint is the salad - warm with warm bottled dressing. Would be better if they didn't bother with the included salad as the meal itself was plenty.
