Nice place where the locals hang out. Decent food but not your sit down dinner type restaurant. Drinks are priced fairly for the island and the locals are all so friendly. It gets pretty busy on Friday and Sat nights.

A very friendly place. I did enjoy talking to Max, the boss at the grill. There was no way to get out of his recommendation for getting his ribs. I'm glad that I did not. Great taste. Nice service and reasonable cost. Wolf!!

Buccaneer Beach Bar is in a good location in Simpson Bay right on Kim Sha Beach. You can grab a beer and take it back with you as you enjoy the sun and the beach. However, if you are just going for drinks, you should probably go to the adjacent The Greenhouse for the 2-for-1 happy hour from 11 am... More

We went on a Saturday night and enjoyed the live music and pizza from the kitchen. This is a fun beach bar with a beautiful view of the sunset. I highly recommend.

I love this place and it never disappoints. Super casual setting at the beach with very reasonable prices. Great service with fabulous BBQ and pizza, there is also a large bar. Depending on the night there is live music. The ribs, chicken and wings are excellent. I prefer the dry rub ribs but they also have ribs with sauce. My... More

Great place to grab a drink after the beach. Music plays mostly on Friday and Saturday. The applewood smoked chicken wings are almost worth making the trip for!

Been here several times, best BBQ ribs and chicken wings on the island! Weekends they fireball fires on the beach for a real nice beach atmosphere!

Great for snack lunches. All freshly barbecued and a glass of your favourite Tipple. The barmaid Wanda was great. Ask to try there shot of the day. At night it is lively and fun, well worth a visit.

This bar has typical prices for St. Marten (although the ribs were great and cheap! $14 for a full rack!), but its lots of fun! They have misters all around the bar to cool you off, music (some live), cornhole, fire shows and free movies for kids!!! This is a happy place
