This place is situated in front of a water park. Not for nothing. This resto serves cheap eats. It should be noted, my husband hadn't had heartburn until he ate here.

Had lunch in this inviting little beach front cafe. Another reviewer aptly stated that they operate on island time. Our portions were very generous. The rice and peas was delicious as was the slaw but the ribs were mediocre. We would return.

This year we had burgers, pizza and calamari. All was great. Including the service. Also, if you eat at Smokey's you can get beach chairs. It was a great time. Can't wait for next year.

Great casual restaurant. As a restaurant customer you have full & free access to the loungers and umbrellas too! We went for lunch, listened to the live music, and then lounged/swam until just before sunset. The food was excellent. I had one of the best salads of my life here, a grilled shrimp Caesar salad. Highly recommend! Seasoning on the... More

It was just so, so. I mean they have you captured since most likely you are with your family at the water park. The ribs are pretty good and the burgers are ok. there is a host of great places on the island to eat---I'd grab a bite somewhere else, then enjoy a few cold beers at smokey's!

Probably better than average $$$ restaurant. The ribs were awesome and only cost $20. It was a full rack. They had a live singer who was surprisingly entertaining. Sure beats spending $200 a couple for most of the restaurants on this island.

Anguilla grows its own greens, so I must say the salads I had everywhere were great, but the one at Smokey's was a Vegetable Salad and had not just the usual greens but also a wide variety of fresh vegetables and a nice sauce on the side. It was really amazing. Service here was excellent. Just have something to eat... More

Smoky's has the best curried goat on the island best served with rice and peas and fried plantains, topped by an ice cold Red Stripe beer. .

Smokey's makes it easy......easy to reach, ample parking lot, nice staff, live music (though not all nights), fair prices, nice selection of tasty food, nice view. My wife and I have made Smokey's our "first night" on the island dinner during each of our trips to Anguilla. We marvel, that 16 hours after awakening in the Midwest, we can be... More
