I was a bit fearful when I saw the karaoke machine but as there were no takers, a two man steel band started playing..not so bad. We were led to a table on the beach close to a roaring fire fuelled by burning wood skids....More

I came here because I heard it was great, but I think the quality has diminished while the prices have increased, because the experience was not a good one. Not planning on going back.

Good local food and amazing atmosphere! Right on the beach. Rum punch to die for. Prices are not too high and staff is par for the local culture.....laid back.

We were told this place was closed for rennovations, then discovered it was open. Mr."Mac" McIntosh, one of our 2 great local drivers, highly recommended the place. It was far better and less expensive for the amount of food then the Marriott resort (bad expereince...More

Been going to St.Kitts for years, first time I visited this bar on the strip. Wasn't massively impressed with the food, but the fire dancer and beach bonfire were spectacular entertainment. Was a good mix of locals and tourists and a friendly atmosphere.

We started coming to St. Kitts in 2008. LOVED it. Bought a timeshare. Ate many times over the years at the Shiggidy Shack. They used to have a great fish burger. The past few years have been iffy. This year will be the last time...More

For a lively night with local students this is the place to be! Don't expect quiet and romantic at Shiggidy Shack...it goes into the wee hours!

Reasonably priced food, delicious. Charming grass hut and laid back atmosphere. Enjoy sitting right on the beach if you wish. Staff was very kind.

Visited on a Friday evening around 7pm. Ordered appetizers and main course but only the mains arrived. The jerk pork was cooked outside on the grill and was delicious. The 'lava' chicken was supposed to be spicy but was mild for my tastes. No desserts...More

It would be a $25 cab ride round trip. If you go, eat at one of the other restaurants on the strip

we used this Breeze Bar situated right on the beach for lunch & dinner, the speciality was the whole lobster but we choose the fresh prawns with pleanty of trimmings. A lot of people use the Shack from the cruise boats at lunchtime then many local people hix in with the Marriot Hotel gests for dinner. Thursday nights are perticularly populary as they have a bonfire on the beach (no trouble with smoke as the wind is always off shore in high season) Friday & Saturday evening can be crowded and it is advised to book early on these days, Reasonable prices and good portions, book for a beach table if you want to hear yourself heard, Also does boat trips/ sport fishing, loverly sunsets if you get thier before 6pm.
