We had good food served up fast by a very friendly staff at this great outdoor venue overlooking the runway right next to the airport. Look for lots of expats at this place because it's one of their favorites. Strike up a conversation with one of the regulars while enjoying a tasty beverage.

We stopped in here on our first night. The food was average at best. The drinks weren't anything special either. Just an average experience. There are much better places in San Pedro than this one.

Mark, Stormin' Norman and the owner Ernie... hardest working bartenders on the island! Cold beers, outdoor bar, and a great barbecue on Sunday! Had a few drinks and lunch before flying off the Caye. The bar is right next to the airport, and if you like to watch planes, it's really entertaining. Not sure why we waited all week to... More

Stopped for a bite to eat for late lunch. Unfortunately, all they had available were burrito's and nacho's. The bartender convinced us to order the chicken in both. Both were large dishes and very hot temperature wise. Not very spicy at all. We sat at the bar in a pleasant setting. Had a couple Bellini beers. Cold and tasted. Bartender... More

All around excellent place to meet friends. Cold drinks, good food, friendly people and great prices. Really good BBQ on the weekends. Chicken wings from the regular menu are worth trying, very tasty.

Sundays are the Best are Carlos & Ernie's Runway Bar! The Sunday BBQ is to die for! Be sure to get there by 12:00pm on Sunday to make sure you get your order in for BBQ, they tend to sell out very quickly! Norman is the friendliest and sweetest server! We love him! Tons of TV's all throughout the bar... More

We went here on the advice of a gentleman who works at the airstrip. The food was your average bar fare. Our table ordered chicken nachos, buffalo wings, and a cheeseburger. The food was once again, average. The chicken on the nachos was bland and tasted as it had been boiled and had no seasoning. The wings seemed to go... More
