I Live in Puerto Rico so visits to Jost are numerous. We always spend mor nights in Jost then anywhere else. Painkillers are the answer!! Also we ate dinner there and the food was awesome and the service great!!

When I dream of running away to the islands and starting my own beach bar...this is it! The pain killers are delicious, but I preferred the rum punch...wish I had one now. My son declared the fried fish sandwich, "the best he's ever had"! Great bar/restaurant on one of the most beautiful beaches in the BVI's...can't wait to come back.

We arrived here from a boat charter, which pulled right up to the beach for us. We had a great time here and they have a nice selection in the gift shop. The area was very busy, but thats to be expected.

The staff here is unlike most others in the BVI. They love, interact with, and care about their customers. Best "Pain Killers" in all the islands. Make sure you ask what flavors are available. Sana, Renny, Winsome "Winny" go out of their way to make sure your visit is memorable. If I could live here I would and adopt all... More

Jost Van Dyke is now my favorite place on earth so naturally my opinion of all things Jost Van Dyke is 5 star, including the home of the original Pain Killer, The Soggy Dollar Bar. This beach is beautiful, full of beautiful and friendly people, boats, and crystal clear water. Ultimate relaxation can definitely be achieved here, but its not... More

You simply shouldn't visit the BVI and not visit White Bay on Jost Van Dyke. And the go-to place on White Bay is the Soggy Dollar. The painkillers (and the vanilla-killers for those who want something a little different, but delicious) are great. The food is good quality "island casual" fare. It's not fine dining, but it's tasty. But you... More

Don't know what all the fuss is about. Too crowded for my taste. Probably ok during the off season. Long lines for everything, even to get in to buy a shirt or hat.

This is real deal. If you are looking for a beach bar that serves trendy cocktails with a great vibe, then soggy dollar is what you are looking for. White bay gets very busy with boats anchored right on the beach with loud music and folks dancing in the water!

So I MAY be a little biased on this place. It's basically a beach bar that has burgers and sanwiches, but it is located on the prettiest white sand beach with crystal clear water that you will ever see. And since swimming makes you hungry, the food tasted awesome. Hope I can get back there one day.

No so much a dining experience but a super spot to spend the day. I has to be one of the prettiest beaches I have seen. Powder white sand with a view to die for. On par with the beaches of Hawaii! The crowd was having as good time as we were. The Painkillers and the upgraded NillKillers (Vanilla extract... More
