“An Island Favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

We can't resist stopping by for a drink and any one of Larry's delicious plates when we are on St John. The pulled pork is the best I've ever had!! It's a great place to stop by on your way to/from Salt Pond or any of the beaches on that side of the island.

“Casual hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

I read where the owner terms his place a "little s***hole by the side of the road" and, visually, that's not too far off. Appearances aside, however, the food and drinks are terrific and the hospitality is first class. If you're on that side of the island, it's definitely worth a visit.

“Great food, excellent service, where the locals welcome you with smiles!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

I will miss the fish tacos, home brew, and friendly service! The owners, staff, and local patrons treat you like life long friends and will not hesitate to lend you a hand if you run into trouble on your vacation!

Great food and terrific service. Picnic tables outside, low key atmosphere. Lobster roll great and kids loved the nachos

“Went back twice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

So good we had to return the same week. Don't miss the pulled pork and grouper. Larry's tomatillo rules! And if Mary's not there that day, you MUST return!
