We never fail to go to the Ocean Lounge more than once, when in Philipsburg. The food is excellent and the venue is beautiful and relaxing. They have a great bar with a large seating area with trees and umbrellas for shade.

The Holland House restaurant is (was) a favorite of ours for lunch when we had a cruise stop in Sint Maarten. On our last visit in October, 2016 it was completely different than our several other visits. It took a long time to be seated and then was another long time to have our order taken. We waited about 45... More

We had 4 dinners in the Ocean Lounge during our stay at the Holland House and they were exceptional. The Petite Filet Mignon was our favorite with a salmon appetizer that was to die for. You could cut the Filet Mignon with a fork and only $27. Unbelievable! If you stay at the hotel, you get a get a complete... More

Just a bit down the beach fro the Sonesta Great Bay Beach, Casino and Spa, this restaurant has amazing food and a spectacular view! The service is a bit confused at times, but nothing too bad.

Great Ambience, terrible management of the reservations, made a 7:30PM reservation 2 weeks ahead, didn't get sat for almost an hour, (clearly forgot us) after inquiring, we get sat in the back by the wait staff side station...by that point we asked to be moved! 2 hours later we finally got our food- not memorable! Over priced- mediocre food-would not... More

Had lunch the other day at Ocean Lounge which is attached to the Holland House Hotel and it was beyond amazing. The Seafood platter for two has to be one of the best seafood towers I have ever had or seen. Literally overflowing with 1 1/2 pound lobster, oysters, sushi grade tuna, shrimp, salmon, king crab legs, it is to... More

The service here was soon slow that I got up, after waiting 40 min for the appetizer to appear and went up to my room and retrieved my laptop. Caught up on my emails for 30 mins, served a so-so steak and 1/2 a lobster for wife and then gave up on the dessert we had ordered after another 30... More

Had the very good tuna sandwich, which is really a sushi grade raw tuna on slices of toasted french bread. Excellent! Not cheap eats, upper price, but worth the good meal. Service, however, was pretty bad. Asked four times for water, my wine suffered from Oxidation and was really bad, had to go up to the bar to change it... More
