Dutch side::

Shadows by the airport. Diverse menu with fish, ribs, chicken, shrimp, something for everyone. Inexpensive, really good local food and lots of it. Diagonally across from the Winair Ticket Office.

The Palms - Simpson Bay. Nice happy hour, good West Indian menu reasonably priced. Their filet mignon is to die for and cheap compared to most steaks on the island.

Marty's Gyro -- not just a gyro place, stop in and look at the menu. Dinner only and it always looks like it's closed due to lack of lights in the front. Same building as Toppers.

Marks Place - probably the best local food on the island. Bush Road roundabout - Dutch Cul Du Sac/Philipsburg.

All the above will do carry out.

French Side

Yvette's - Orleans - Our favorite - lots of takeout here

Enold's Caribbean Creole Food - Grand Case at the opposite end of restaurant row from the airport.

Gutside - Friars Bay Fri, Sat and Sun only

Don't you just love Anthony Bourdain!! Yes, Hilmas is a great place for real local food and a dutch "coffee" (aka Heineken) for breakfast. If you are also looking for take-out, (you can also dine there) we discovered Alexanders ( one floor above Bon Appetit) in Simpson Bay a few visits ago. Their food is real good and the chicken lasagna is fantastic. Local cuisine at its best!!
