Recently, my entire family travelled to GBI for a family reunion. We wanted to celebrate my parents' 40th wedding anniversary while we were there with a nice dinner. I had been to the island twice before and was worried about having to plan this while at home in Canada and I was also concerned about a restaurant being able to handle such a large group of us as my experiences with a lot of restaurants on the Island weren't very positive in terms of timely service.
I had been to Red Beard's once before for appys and drinks and liked the atmosphere so I decided to give it a try. I corresponded with the owner, Brian, via email in the months leading up to the trip and was very pleased that he was able to plan a memorable dinner for 20 of us (including 10 kids and a baby!) without even speaking on the phone or in person. Brian was able to arrange decorations and two very delicious angel food cakes as I mentioned it was my mom's favourite. The finishing touch was complimentary champagne for the adults. Brian was very attentive to the group, personally ensuring everything was up to par. The service was also very good. Our server was able to handle the entire group's orders with ease and she was very friendly and helpful as well. The food and drinks were also very good.
Everyone was very happy with the evening and when we were leaving, Brian even gave my dad one of the really cool coffee mugs they use there when my dad asked to buy one and wouldn't accept cash for it.
All-in-all, I highly recommend Red Beard's Pub for the food, service and atmosphere. If you're on GBI, it is a must!
