Great vibe, food and AMAZING views!

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... read more

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

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

I ventured over to the "new" Uncle Ernie's during our recent trip to SBE. I had read online that they had some sort of lobster sandwich and I was dying to try it. The lobster pocket did not disappoint! It was delicious. No one was at the restaurant on this day (Sunday, April 13th). There was a DJ playing some... More

Burgers and BBQ. Some salads but I went with the chicken and rib combo. Reasonably priced and easy for a day at Shoal Bay. Get a beach chair and umbrella from Ray Deman and you're good to go. Beers at Ernie's only $2.50. Nice!
