HEMINGWAYS- Skip this place!! I can tell you with confidence do not go to Hemingways right now. They are having issues with their staff. Most of them have no idea what they are doing and are just rude. No one seems very happy there. It’s...a beautiful location for a sunset dinner so it’s a shame the servers are so rude. We had reservations at the perfect time to see the sunset. However the rest of the atmosphere was terrible. We booked a month out. We arrived at 7 PM and were promptly seated (hostess was nice). Sat there 20 minutes waiting on anyone to greet us while tables that had just arrived around us were greeted and drink orders taken. Finally a waitress came by and asked us about water and took our drink order. We ordered a bottle of wine. Wine came out promptly with water. No issues. When the wine was brought to us we asked to order an appetizer as we could tell this was going to be a long evening with the way it was going. The person who took our wine order was different from the one who waited on us. There were so many in the beginning we couldn’t even tell who was our server. She didn’t ask so we asked about an appetizer. Then another 25 minutes later we placed our dinner order. Ate the appetizer and it was excellent. No issues. 45 minutes more passed by and the waitress came by and asked if we got the appetizer and what we both had ordered. This was our first indication there was an issue. Meanwhile the tables all around us were getting their meals. Waitress stated she would go check on it. Still No issues just getting concerned. A full 45 more minutes went by with no indication of what was going on. We finished our bottle of wine and we’re just sitting there wondering what was going on. My quiet husband who never gets irritated was clearly not happy. Waitress came by and assured us food was coming. Again, new tables sat down and got their drinks orders and appetizers delivered. Finally our food came with no apologies or even acknowledging the issue. We ate it. We were starving by that point and ready to go. Food wasn’t even good. Fish was over cooked. Probably had been sitting under a heat lamp waiting on our server to check on it. The waitress came over and we asked what happened just out of curiosity. Wasn’t mad about it just wondering what happened to the food and that is when the night took a turn for the worse. The waitress got defensive and in a nasty tone stated “what’s the problem are you not happy? You never said you weren’t happy throughout the night!” We were mortified as tables were all around us. She kept on. Finally I’d had enough and said we didn’t say anything because we aren’t ones to complain. She snapped back at me again rolling her eyes at us and asked well do you want to complain? I said yeah we do. She then proceeded to snap her head and say well there is no one to complain to. I said we’d like to speak to a manager. She told us well there is no manager so that’s all there is on that and walked off. As she was walking off I told my husband where she could hear me that is fine if there isn’t any manager we’ll just complain to TripAdvisor. She came back and said I am going to find the manager. Manager came over - we told her what happened and she asked if I thought maybe there was a language barrier. I explained nope, she pretty much told me there was no manager and rolled her yes at me so I think she understood. The manager was very professional and apologized and talked with us a minute. She didn’t have to apologize we really just thought she needed to know about her miserable server. We could tell she was embarrassed about how the server acted. There was no excuses for how the server acted. Manager took 30% off the bill and we got out of there. Do not go there. I read three other reviews on trip advisor saying same thing. They just have issues with their staff right now. It is what it is. We had 7:00 pm reservations for two and we left there 9:00 PMMore

Stay at Sands so usually eat here a few times. Lunch fish tacos are real good as are their fries. We also had dinner and it was good as well. The only comment I would make is that we ordered lamb and steak and it...seemed like it took a long time to arrive. My grandchildren were getting a little hard to manage waiting. A must spot though for anyone coming to Turks.More

Hemmingways is a beautiful dining experience just steps off the beach! The food is delicious and the service is A++! Our server Rhesa was a dream come true! Rhesa greeted us with a warm smile and a big hello. She was extremely knowledgeable about the...menu and highly recommended the steak to my husband, who is a picky eater! She then suggested the Conch for me after we talked for a few minutes about likes and dislikes! Her service was outstanding, attentive, never missing a beat and going above & beyond for my husband's birthday! My husband said "its the best steak I have ever had" & the Conch was superb! Rhesa was so warm & friendly and full of great suggestions for our vacation!!! After dining, I felt like Rhesa was not just a server but a friend!! She made our whole dining experience incredible! A true asset to Hemmingways!!! Ask for Rhesa as your server upon making your reservation or if you just walk in!!!More

Worst customer service ever. Dinner reservations were made along with an arrangement to have a wheel chair to accommodate my friend. Upon arriving we were told the bellman ran off with the key to where the wheel chair was being stored. So here we are...stranded in the parking lot where the taxi let us off. They offered to call us a cab to haul us back to the lobby where we could wait on the bellman. We declined and trudged on with our friend and someone from the front desk. Very exhausted, due to COPD, it put a damper on our meal which was suppose to be a fun well planned evening without episode. The front desk clerk promised we would have access to the chair once our meal was complete..just call the front desk. Someone from the restaurant ran to fetch the chair only to be told there wasn’t one available. Then we were approached by a rude, uncaring man that said well what do you want me to do. His demeanor was a huge put off. Somehow we made it to the parking lot where we waited for a cab that my other friend had to locate at the lobby. Never any apologies, no offer to pay for our cab for not following thru with our needs. Nothing! Really disappointed with the way we were handled. We will never return to this restaurant on our yearly visits to this island.More

Had a large family group for lunch. The food was a 4 but the service a 2 or worse. Took forever to place our order, longer for it to appear, half didn’t get what they ordered, the waitress seemed clueless and unconcerned. Look elsewhere

The food is good. The service is prompt and they seem prepared to handle large and small groups. The snapper was just ok. The Mahi special was very good. Wine was ok. Location is great. Homemade rum cake and ice cream was great!

We had lunch and dinner here on separate days during our week in TCI. The food was great and the ambience was lovely while seated on the outdoor deck. The service we received was also responsive and courteous.

We are a family of four, two adults and two teenagers, that enjoyed a meal out on the deck in early June. Great selection. My husband and I had the grilled wahoo, son had the hot shrimp penne, and daughter had the shrimp scampi. Everything...was delish and we would recommend.More

We went straight to Hemingway's from airport for a late lunch. It was the perfect place to start our trip. The fish sandwiches were the best all week. The wait staff was attentive. Would return.

We were staying at The Sands and ate at Hemingway’s a few times. Good home-style conch chowder. Delicious snapper w rice and peas. Everything simply and excellently cooked at prices quite reasonable for the resort parts of Providenciales. Helpful servers. And the best mango daiquiris...to take to the beach at sunset.More

You can’t go wrong ordering a meal at Hemingways. Situated at Grace Bay beach, the ambiance is relaxed and pleasant. I ordered the grilled grouper with dill butter while my wife ordered the grilled snapper with mango butter. Both were delicious and accompanied by peas...and rice, a local staple. For dessert, we shared a generous portion of rum cake topped with vanilla ice cream. The restaurant also serves some of the best frozen rum drinks I tasted in TCI. Its banana colada is reason enough to make a visit to Hemingways.More
