The food was good. Not bad, not great. But it hit the spot. The Bang Bang shrimp were the best part of our meal.

What really made the meal was the server we had. She was not only nice and friendly, but she was extremely thoughtful! We had our 1-year-old with us and she was a great help in getting his food out quickly, entertaining him and just overall being so pleasant that the whole experience went from being just average, to "very good".

The food is nothing to really write about, it's all the standard stuff done decently well. But come here for the ambiance, the drinks and the great service... not for the best meal of your life!

The Greenhouse on the Boardwalk in Philipsburg was the last place we ate before leaving St Maarten. Service was prompt, friendly, and the food was good. We will eat here again when we return to St Maarten.

Stopped in on a Wednesday. Bang Bang shrimp are the special on Wednesday ($6), we ordered two plates for four as an appetizer. They were awesome. Stuffed grouper was amazing. Our waiter was great. Would recommend without hesitation.

It doesn't get much better than dining on the beach with 2 for 1 drinks (Bushwackers and Mudslides were tasty). The two lunches met our expectations. However, we were disappointed with our dinner. We discovered they don't purchase adequately when they offer their dining special. On Mondays, they have a prime rib special. We were told to make reservations since it would be busy because of the special. We made our reservations in person and told them we were looking forward to the prime rib. When we arrived, our table was not on the beach and we were told they were out of prime rib and the next batch of baked potatoes would be ready in an hour. Luckily, we found other dishes to enjoy.

Ate there twice. The food was decent but a little pricey. the waitress was very friendly. The daily specials are a good option
