We went to Cockleshell Beach for the day on a stop for a cruise. We stopped at 6 different islands and got food everywhere we went. This place by far had the best food, drinks, and service out of any of the other islands. It really made our stop at the island an awesome one!!

Family of 9, ages 14 to 83, spent 3 hours here on June afternoon for lunch, rum punch, beer, and relaxing on the beach and in the water. I specifically chose this beach bar after visiting here 3 years ago and enjoying it so much with my husband that I wanted to share with the rest of the family. Last... More

Lion Rock Beach Bar & Grill is such a unique and fun beach bar! They offer rental beach chairs (including umbrellas) for only $5 each (a steal compared to the $40 I had to pay in Ft. Lauderdale just a couple months before) and they serve up some of the best rum punch on the island - also only $5.... More

We spent the day with Angela and Lion, could not have been any better! Weather was perfect, they set us up on the beach with chairs and an umbrella, drank rum punch and ate Lions delicious shrimp! We were there for at least five hours and hated to leave! Thank you for the experience, we will return!

We were on a cruise and a friend new about this beach and bar. I was very impressed with the food and the cocktails were very good. Make sure you visit this place if you are on the beach. You won't be disappointed!

We were only in St Kitt for the day and we were on the water 80% of the day but the time we spent here was great. The food is fresh, the service friendly and drinks very good

If you are looking for a great beach bar experience, you need to go to Lion's on Cockleshell beach. The cruise ships and taxis may steer you to the larger operations nearby but TRUST me, Lion's is the place to be. We visit Lion's each year when we are in St. Kitts for Spring break. He has a true family... More

Lion serves up an amazing meal - whether you go for the ribs, chicken, fish or shrimp bring your appetite! Each meal has coconut salad, vegetables, rice & beans, fresh tomatoes & cucumbers and a large serving of your protein; and it's always consistent! It's a family affair around the bar, too...Angel (Mrs. Lion), CJ (their son) and Keanna (CJ's... More
