Visited late August. According to those in the know, it was open Wed thru Sat. Showed up Wed at 4PM (albeit a bit early) and they said they would open at 4:30. Returned at 5:30, walked in and around and was told "Chef didn't make...More

Driving up to this restaurant, we weren't expecting much, but we were pleasantly surprised. Situated on the 2nd story, the restaurant is open air with a lovely breeze flowing through. We were greeted by white table cloths and slipcovered chairs! Had drinks and the conch...More

I am born and raised Virgin Gordian and I absolutely can't get enough off this spot! They do awesome burgers and conch fritters! If you're looking for a sweet sunset spot while dining then this is the place for you!

Not only is the food great, but the view is insane. They have live music some days. They even have a mini-golf course out front. Great drinks. Good place for kids too!

We've enjoyed sunset dinners at The Mine Shaft in years past with music, a good atmosphere and decent food. Now we are back just with the update the Mine Shaft is closed for renovations. No idea how long.

We had a good down home Caribbean fish dinner, while experiencing a golden sunset. Memorable experience.

We had read about the lovely views from here but there is now many houses blocking the views. Maybe they should not brag about the views any more. We were a large group with reservations. Then when we start ordering, we discover they really opened...More

My wife had read some nice reviews so we stopped off here to check out the food and putt putt course. The mini golf course was absolute trash so that was a no go. We were the only ones there and service was extremely slow....More
