After a few Friday night drinks in The Dock (Waterfront bar in Frigate Bay) to watch the sunset, we took the short drive to the Rock Lobster Restaurant (also in Frigate Bay) which we had heard so much about, and they lived up to their well deserved reputation. The staff were both friendly and helpful. The lobster soup is to... More

Just a short walk up the strip from our stay in the Marriott and nice little outside restaurant. Not on the beach, but had great outdoor breeze. Loved the Ceviche! Special was coconut crusted Lion Fish and it was delicious and plated beautifully. Also tried the fish and chips and was a very generous portion. Save room for the a... More

We had a nice dinner one night during our stay at the Marriott resort, just up the street. Good food and attentive service, ambiance not as nice as at other restaurants as outdoor tables face the parking lot. Good experience, would return.

We stopped here for dinner on our walk back from Caribbean side of the island. It was still early in the evening and there was plenty of seating in the restaurant area, although the bar was hopping. The service was great and the meal was fantastic. I'm a vegetarian but my husband is not. There were plenty of options for... More

We walked there from Marriott. The ceviche is one of the best we have had in years, maybe ever. We also had the Champagne Lobster chowder which was delicious - lighter than a bisque but still creamy. My husband had the lion fish appetizer portion as dinner and it was perfect. I had the grilled lobster which was expensive but... More

Four of us just had a main course. Two lobster salad specials and two boiled lobsters with garlic butter and trimmings. We were all delighted with our dishes that were served promptly and pleasantly by most attentive staff. Really nothing to complain about...not like me at all!

The lobster here was good. Probably not the best I have ever had, but it was good. You get 3 split tails for $48. It also comes with sides, so no need to order extra side dishes. 3 of us had the lobster and the 4th had the giant seafood platter for $62. He really enjoyed it. Except, He said... More

Mostly seafood restaurant, with good food with local flavors. Seemed to be a little pricey relative to food- but overall a solid choice for seafood in the Frigate Bay area

About a 10 minute walk down from the Marriott Resort. Seating is outdoors and we had to use a little bug repellent. Started with lion fish appetizer, with panko coating and mango sauce. Excellent. Worth a try if you've never tried lion fish. Had seafood paella which was also excellent. My sister in law had special - lamb chops, which... More
