Oh my, the cocktails here will get you where you want to go! This typically bustling bar/restaurant was empty except our group of six. We enjoyed cocktails (Painkillers and Margaritas) and lunch while taking in the amazing view. The staff was friendly and accommodating and...appreciative of our business.More

The best lobster in a beach restaurant with the chef serving and visiting. Cows walked by, waves crashing, beautiful breeze. Best restaurant meal per the 9 shipmates. They sent a van to pick us up with a friendly driver. Nice beach bar attached where we...went in our bathing suits earlier in the day.More

We were spending an extra night on Anegada as weather too poor for an enjoyable sail down to Virgin Gorda. So took a taxi over to Loblolly for the day. Walked the beach and then turned up for a few drinks and lunch. Had a...few beers at the bar overlooking the sea and ordered lunch. It was served in the covered area behind the bar. Food and service excellent. Most of the menu consisted of local dishes that I wasn’t familiar with. However bar staff happy to describe and translate what was likely to arrive. Thankfully all excellent and very much to my liking. High on my list of places to return to should I visit Anegada again.More

We made our 4th visit in late February 2020. Even though Aubrey is gone, Diane and her wonderful staff and family showed us why they are the real deal on Anegada. Gregory picked us up near the Anegada Reef Hotel after our sail from Virgin...Garda and drove us to Loblolly where the snorkeling was as wonderful as we remembered and the lobster dinner (preceded by Bruce’s wonderful rum concoctions) was every bit as good as the first one 25+ years ago. This is a timeless, magical place you don’t want to miss.More

The food was average and a bit of a rip off. I was told I was getting a 2-2/12 lb lobster but there was no way this was a 2 lb lobster for $50 usd (pic included). It's also a shame that after spending the...entire day there $150 for lunch that they would charge you an extra $30 to pick you up and drop you back off at the ferry terminal when it's only a few km away. The vehicle that picked us up had their name on the entire van so it looked as if it is their own shuttle. I understand there could be a cost associated with the shuttle but $30 is a bit of a rip off. Overall I wouldn't waste my time going back there ever again as the swimming in front was not that nice, the food was not that good and it's very expensive for what you get. To top it all off the cost of the shuttle left a bad taste in the mouth.More

The food is always good and the service is reasonable. The beach there is excellent for snorkeling although the winds were too high for our week long visit this year.

What a great place to enjoy a spectacular beach and follow it up with an exceptional meal fresh from the sea. Their lobster pot is just off shore where you can enjoy a pleasant snorkel and swim with sea turtles. The service is superb and...the little library is handy. A must for any visit to Anegada!More
