We rented 3 chairs a table and the umbrella for $10. The beach was amazing..!!! We did not find a single piece of garbage. Arranged a round trip for $50 to and from ferry pier. When we ordered our 3 BBQ chicken meals they took about 30 minutes to fire up the char grill but it was worth it.

I am a top contributor to Trip Advisor and take pride in the fact that I almost always do positive, or at least encouraging, reviews. This place is so bad I must break with tradition. If you have a connection to a distributor who can supply Heinz plastic packs with salad dressing and barbeque sauce, there is no reason to... More

Fantastic food & drinks on the world's most beautiful beach. The fresh fish was amazing and the beach service was great. $12 for 2 chairs, umbrella and table. Can't go wrong here.

I have eaten here twice now on two separate vacations. The fish is super fresh. They put it over a basic salad - but that is also super fresh. My kids loved their burgers. This is a super casual place on the beach. But they have excellent food.

If you come to Anguilla, take a taxi directly for Uncle Ernie's. Wonderful food, great prices, the best beach view around. The snorkeling is amazing, just a quick swim from Uncle Ernie's. You can rent equipment for only 10 bucks, and it's also only 10 bucks for an umbrella and 2 chairs. This is a special, low-key place on the... More

Not sure why this is ranked as Nightlife in Anguilla - not even sure they open late - it is really a beach Shack - a good one with good cost/benefit ratio - we had lunch there on the 2014 Anguilla day, so it was nice to be with locals watching the boatrace pass by in front of us. If... More

If you find yourself on East Shoal Beach do yourself a favor and eat at Uncle Ernie's. The food was great and the view is unbelievable. The will provide you with 2 chairs and an umbrella for lying on the beach for the usual $20.00
