Walked up to Shells from Jolly Harbour. The Fish& Chips were great, cooked to order. Really crispy batter. Perry was very friendly, we were the only ones there, can't believe it wasn't packed. It was the best value meal we have had since we arrived.

My husband and I wandered over to Shell's from Sugar Ridge Resort and we were not disappointed. Perry was very friendly and talked to us while preparing our fish (swai) and chips. Delicious food, low key and affordable! Very neat and clean and charming. Nice to get away from the resort and eat local.

We had an excellent meal with friends at Shells while we were staying in Jolly Harbour. The waiter- Mario was very friendly and entertained us with his philosophical take on the world. The fish and chips were very good - no one left a crumb behind! Jim and Sandra, Southampton, Canada

We have visited Perry and Shells Fish and Chips twice now in the last two and a half weeks and have had the best service and the most delicious food both times. The lightly battered fish is delicious and cooked perfectly. We have also heard that Perry's chicken wings are among the best on the island. Because everything is cooked... More

Amazing food. The fish had a tasty batter and was cooked to perfection. The place is run by one gentleman that was working like crazy but was very attentive and friendly. Food was prepared to order so it took a little longer but was well worth the wait. I recommend making a reservation.

Tried to eat here twice - we say tried because we gave up both times. There appeared to be one harassed guy serving and cooking - he said he couldn't even guess how long we'd have to wait. Rather than sit in the dark we gave up

It's rustic, it's not quick, but it's cooked fresh, the coconut shrimp are excellent and the battered fish is the best I've had since moving south from Yorkshire 30yrs ago. If your in jolly harbour and want laid back good food this is the place. This guy should be way busier than he is. Also does take away!

Go see this place and sign your name in the double decker bus. Cute little outdoor patio and great fish and chips! Very close to sugar ridge resort. The local young Antiguan guy who runs it is very nice and gives great service. Complete with a little candle, table cloth and plate service to your picnic table. We enjoyed it!

Perry made this experience worth it. He was jovial, even when I changed my mind about what I wanted to have. Definitely a good chill spot.

We were seated by the amiable Perry and sat enjoying a couple of beers whilst waiting for our freshly cooked food, we had the fish and chips which we can highly recommend. Great atmosphere, we sat outside on one of the benches which was set beautifully complete with tablecloth, ambient candle and shell lighting above. Check out the unique bus... More

Description
LIVE MUSIC EVERY THURSDAY FROM 8.00

A bright red original 1959 London Double Decker bus. Located next to Sugar Ridge Hotel and just a 5 minutes walk from Jolly Harbour this icon is impossible to miss. The bus has been completely renovated and provides seating for 40 guests. We did our best to maintain the historic integrity of this British classic. Or sit outside enjoying the breeze in our lush tropical garden.

Delicious fish, crispy chunky chips, homemade mushy peas and tartar sauce and finally some pickles give you the classic fish & chips experience. Beyond that we serve shrimp for those who are less into fish we are happy to offer succulent sausages and rotisserie chicken with any of our side dishes.
