We went for breakfast and found the place to have lost a little bit of its charm. Breakfast was good and the painkillers were good. Ok, it was a LATE breakfast! It is now more of a regular stop on the "yachtie trail".

We spent our soggy dollars and loved it. Painkillers and pre mixed with fresh Nutmeg on top. Pasta salad with the burger was amazing. If you are a public servant don't forget to bring a patch! Check this one off the bucket list!

Soggy Dollar is the beach bar to stop at after a snorkel trip in the BVIs. A walk on the beach there at the end of the day is just a wonderful experience.

We went to Soggy Dollar 2x times this year -- once off a cruise ship and once on a day trip from STJ. The drinks are always yummy and the beach amazing! We actually ate lunch a SDB in November and had really LOW expectations. We were pleasantly surprised -- tuna melt, burgers and chicken fingers were all good. Service... More

It's just one of those must go places when in the BVIs. The pain killer was invented here, and just order two for everyone in your party to save standing in line twice. The bar closes early, so plan your evening if staying in White harbor over night. They do serve dinner with reservations that was wonderful.

While sailing the BVI's there are 5-6 iconic, must visit dive bars, and the Soggy Dollar is one. The beach is probably the best in the BVIs, the ring toss is the hardest, and the Painkiller the best. The people watching is also fab. Make sure you also visit WT's.

We visited the Soggy Dollar as part of a boat charter. The beach and the water are stunning and it's fun to swim in. The painkillers and rum punch were delicious. We had a great afternoon here. Will. E back next year.

Loved the Soggy Dollar Bar, lots of sun, sand and snorkeling. They call it the Soggy Dollar because you have to jump off your boat and wade to shore. They don't usually get dry money. The best place to be mid January of any year😎

Worth dropping by on the way to the salt baths for a drink in the afternoon. No need to present dry dollars.

It's all about technique. You swing too hard , you miss. Not enough and you don't get close. (nb: you will miss every putt when you come up short of the hole) Buy a t shirt and try the drink. I had a local IPA that had that classic American twist of excessive happiness. Classic must do spot on this... More
