The food presentation was creative and appealing to the eye. Only downside was the food was just average tasting. My wife got the... More

A short walk from the Royal St Kitts, we were seated after a few moments, reservations are recommended. The wait staff was fairly attentive, an extra trip fo fill our water glasses would have been nice. The food was very tasty and portions were just right. We were told of the specials of the day, including soup appetizers and main... More

Rock Lobster was so good that we had dinner twice during our short St Kitts stay. The setting is relaxed yet classy and the service is spot on. Our first dinner we had Shawvon as our waiter and he literally is about as good as it gets! From spot on service to his attention to every detail, Shawvon deserves a... More

Stopped at Rock Lobster for dinner and was happy we did. The soups and entrees were delicious. We had a really nice/fun waiter also. Great place to eat and walking distance from the Hotel.

My husband and I ate here and enjoyed ourselves very much. We were greeted by a friendly host and seated at a nice table. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. After a cocktail we ordered salads which were served cold (very hard to do considering we're in the hot Caribbean!) with a nice balsamic dressing. Presentation was good and the... More

The hotel staff at the Marriott recommended we eat here as it is walking distance from the hotel with awesome seafood. Given that this was our last night on the island, we were ready to wait hours for our food with poor service, as this is how many restaurants work. We were all pleasantly surprised to see this was definitely... More

The beach at Rock Lobster is very nice and clean. Not very noisy and a great place to spend the day. The food is very expensive for what you get.
