Great place to stop for a cocktail while you shop! You can watch the people go by. Everyone is friendly.

Thanks for the nice review 327janen, but Simon has decided to close Honky Tonk Bar. The Covid-19 has taken its toll and it was impossible to keep the bar open with little or no customers. Simon is moving back to the UK, his original home.

Went for drinks and lunch a few times the week we were there. Simon is awesome! The food was really good. Love the nachos. The location is great right on the beach. Can't wait to go back.

you can't beat the ocean view while you have a drink, and burger, but it was the personal attention provided by Simon that brought us back a couple more times. Simon takes pride in his job, and made us feel right at home. I'm already...looking forward to going back next year!More

It is not our first visit, but the first one since the major hurricane. We were so glad to see the place is fully rebuilt and operational. Simon is still there, friendly and professional as always, assisted by his very devoted waiter Brent. We enjoyed...having an excellent Pina Colada, followed by Chicken Nachos (delicious) and a few beers. We love the atmosphere and appreciate the fact that ''busy'' Simon takes the time to greet us and chat. We had to leave to return to our ship wiping a little tear. The food is always great with many choices on the menu. Good portion, decent prices and priceless friendliness. What else could you ask for. We are looking forward to go back.More

Simon was recommended to me by a friend who just visited St. Maarten. He was a wonderful host for the beach bar and getting drinks and snacks to the beach. Great location and wonderful beach.

We stopped here today for lunch as we were just looking around for a spot to eat. Good choice! Simon is an excellent waiter/bartender and will do whatever he needs to do to get your food and drink order. Exceptional food and great service. Can't...say enough. Would definitely go back. Reasonably priced also. My only complaint would be the smoking but unfortunately it's allowed .More

Simon, the bartender, is one of the best I've seen. He's a bit secretive with his recipes but never disappointed with the results. Great place to drink and eat while on the beach.

Missed out on our visit last year due to the hurricane, so pleased to find the bar this year as we remember it. Beach front location, excellent service, reasonably priced and the name still makes me laugh, us Brits still associate Honky Tonk with the...late great Dick Emery.More

This outdoor bar and grill will surprise you! The food is terrific and the drinks are cold. Love to sit at Simon's picnic tables and watch the people on the boardwalk and Great Bay. You won't regret eating here. We had breakfast and lunch multiple...times on our stay in St. Maarten.More

We hadn't visited St Maarten since Hurricane Irma had done her worst in paying the Caribbean islands a visit in 2017. We always visited The Honky Tonk Bar prior to this date, whenever our cruise ship docked there. We were always met with a warm...welcome and a menu full of mouth watering dishes, not to mention the bottles of refreshing Carib lager. We always recall our visits here with fondness. Our re-visit occurred in March this year and we were delighted to find The Honky Tonk Bar still in one piece, although they had been very busy putting it back on its feet. It still is a work in progress but the welcome was the same and the well-remembered Honky Tonk burgers were still truly delicious. Its proximity to the beach is just incidental, for we would visit here even if if wasn't a beach-side attraction, but the view across the Bay to the cruise ship awaiting our return was reassuring, although it was hard to say Goodbye... until the next time!More
