Shiggidy was highly recommended by a friend that traveled to St. Kitts a few years ago. However I was a bit skeptical after reading the recent reviews online. No the lunch and dinner is not better than anywhere else. But they did serve breakfast on Saturday's and Sunday's with both English and American options. Remember though, the food is not... More

This is located on "the strip," which is just a bunch of bars and beach restaurants along a strip of beach. The food was good, better than I expected. The service was...OK. Def. not in a hurry to take our order or bring our food or check. Ambience was great-right on the beach, although sitting in a chair on the... More

The food was good and the location on the water is nice. RIbs were great but fried fish was a bit too oily!

Went for Bon fire, fireman and lobster dinner. Found a table by 7 pm, ordered drinks and dinner, got our drinks, and waited, and waited and waited. At 9, my husband went to find our dinner status and at that time heard that our dinner was up to an hour away from being done and that fireman hadn't been there... More

This place was recommended as local, fun, and with a bonfire and fire eater on Thursday night, all of which turned out to be untrue. We took a party of 8 there on a Thursday night. It was an hour before we got our drinks and after waiting for almost two hours for our food the waitress actually said it... More

We went there on a Sunday night after traveling all day. When we got there they said the cook was not there as yet. We asked how long and they said soon, True island fashion. We sat down, took forever to get a beverage. About and hour and half later, cook showed up. We ordered, (mind you when we got... More

Seriously, look at any of my reviews! I have never seen a place that serves food that looks like this. It was a dump and had some of the worst locals on the island. I would absolutely NOT recommend this place.

This is as local of an experience as it gets. Well located half a mile away from the Marriott on the beach front and nestled just at the start of a strip of bars and restaurants. This place has a combination of a live music station, active bar and a fresh bbq pit boasting fish lobster and meats. Food is... More

I have been going to st kitts for quite a few years and this place has really changed, and not for the better. The prices now for lobster are very high and the service is not very good. The best night to go is Thursday as they have the fire man and bonfire.

Description
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.
