We just walked into the place and were seated right away at a table right by the bay. Service was quick and the food was fabulous. We had the smoked ribs, smoked chicken as well as the shrimp entree and they were all fantastic for the price. The sides were fresh and tasty especially the potato salad. Reasonably priced dinner...

Lee's is a Simpson Bay staple restaurant. Fish is freshly caught and grilled that day. The yellow fin tuna is to die for. Alway very popular and is a happening place during the high season.

This trip to the island we visited Lee's twice. Everything is great about this place. Good breeze, fun atmosphere and the food has more flavor than you can imagine. The music was good too. Try the whole grilled snapper, yes with the head on it! I can't say enough about it;)

We came in for dinner, walking by the BBQ grill gives a good idea of what is in store. There was a very good band playing and everyone was having a good time. We had the grilled shrimp which were very good and the grilled Red Snapper which was fabulous. When one of us could not finish all of her... More

We walked across the road from Royal Palm and had a great time. I had fish and surprisingly my wife had ribs - all were great. This isn't fancy dining, but they had good musicians and good food. Enjoy!

We loved loved the food at Lee's Roadside Grill. Our resort was right across the street and you can smell the delish ribs cooking. The service is great, reasonable prices. Seems like the managers or owners are always there to welcome you in all the restaurants we visited in St. Maarten. Can't wait to go back!

Go for the lobster. I believe it was $19 a pound. I would say this place is just a tiny bit better than Skipjacks, but the sides at Skipjacks are better. The fries here aren't good, but the service and the lobster are great. We also got a grilled snapper, it was ok. As I said, go for the lobster.

Came here on our last day of the trip go get a few bites before the usual pretzel bag on the 3h30 flight back. Turned out to be really nice, good food, accomodating for the kids - they got to see the lobsters in an open tub, feed the 20 or so gigantic tarpons with left over fries :) Definitely... More

It took a long time for anyone to come to our table to get our drink order. Once we ordered, the food came out fast. We ordered the fried crab bites, the cheeseburger, fish and chips, and lemonade. I was unable to detect crab in the crab bites, but they were fine. The burger was juicy and very tasty, and... More

On our first night in St. Maarten we ate at Lee's Roadside Grill. Our taxi driver said the food was good. I ordered the ribs & chicken combo. I can't remember what everyone else ordered. I know everyone liked what they ordered. My combo order was a half rack of ribs & a quarter leg of chicken. I like spicy... More
