Garvey is the man, he is super friendly and everyone here rocks. I had the best meal here, a whole red snapper cooked perfectly. Can't say enough about this place. The drinks are good, always good company, great drinks, and dominos all day.

Loud music playing and couldn't hear each other talk from across the table. Asked them to turn it down twice cause we were the only one's there. They didn't, so we left and didn't come back the rest of our stay. So they forfeited an easy profit to listen to their music alone. And the people of this island are... More

My spouse and I enjoyed drinks at Garvey's Sunshine Shack several times during our 4-night stay at nearby Cuisinart Resort, both of which are located in Rendezvous Bay. The Sunshine Shack is a short walk on the beach from Cuisinart (and a much longer walk by paved road). Opened in 2008, the Shack features rustic wooden and plastic chairs and... More

We ate here twice, it being a stone's throw from where we were staying. The setting is beautiful, and it's a great place to relax and unwind. Your food order is going to take awhile, so grab a beer or a (delicious) lemon daiquiri or rum punch and enjoy the view. Chef/owner Garvey is also a world class mixologist, so... More

I'm not a huge rib fan, but the day we went, they only had ribs and chicken left and I'd heard great things about the ribs, so my husband and I both got the chicken and rib combo plate. The ribs were phenomenal. Best I've ever had! The chicken was really good, as well as the rice! The ribs had... More

We stopped by this place one afternoon for a beer and ended up being the last people to leave. Garvey welcomed us with beach chairs and an umbrella. He was one of the friendliest people we encountered. We then tried some ribs that had just come off the grill, and they were awesome. Nothing like relaxing here with a few... More

Garvey Lake is the owner of the Sunshine Shack. The ribs were the best that I have ever eaten. Garvey is also an excellent person as he makes sure that everyone is happy and getting what they need.
