We decided to visit RL on the basis of previous good reviews, we were not disappointed! Having arrived without a reservation we were lucky to get a table in a very busy restaurant, so not expecting great service, TOTALLY WRONG, service was attentive and great, each person introducing themselves, including Mini who delivered a tasty amuse bouche . We both... More

We dined here twice during our two week vacation, and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The service is superb, and the appetizers as well as the main dish are flavorful and well-presented. Look forward to going again.

A very quaint little spot! It was near full when we arrived and they asked us if we had reservations (we did not), but they got us a table right away. My wife had their namesake lobster (Caribbean lobster, it's not rock lobster, which we do not care for). I had the Grouper, WOW, huge portion and delicious! Great drinks,... More

Food was good (shrimp special and lobster thermador) and close to the Marriott but maybe a little overpriced compared to the other nearby restaurants we visited.

Great menu offering many options. Every dish looked and smelled amazing going past our table. Our table ordered grilled mahi mahi, fried shrimp, fish & chips, and their signature spiny rock lobster. Delicious!!! Great atmosphere, friendly staff, and an easy walk from the Marriott. Cheers to Rock Lobster!

This was the first restaurant we tried in St. Kitts and it has been our favorite so far out of five. The bartender ("Slice") was knowledgable, friendly, and worth the trip alone. The wait staff was friendly, on their toes, working as a team, and very attentive. The menu has a diverse offering of food and is reasonably price. I... More

We visited Rock Lobster on our recent visit to St. Kitts and were very happy with the experience. The ambiance is pretty average but the food was very good and we were able to walk from the Marriott. Definitely recommend!

The restaurant is set near the beach and surrounded by rising hotels and condos but it retains an island charm. The service is very good. Also warm and friendly. On the evening we ate there were three other birthdays being celebrated!
