“Great Frozen Drinks, Nice Local People”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

After Reading reviews on Tripadvisor I wrote down The Big Kahuna Rum Shack on my list for places perhaps to visit. We stumbled upon The Big Kahuna Rum Shack while spending a day in port from the cruise ship. The Frozen Drinks were great, Our service was excellent, and the local people were very nice. We heard the food was really good but had already had something to eat. Planning to return in April 2014 and we will be back to visit this place.

“very good”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

We ate here yesterday but were still full from lunch so we did the appetizers {jerk chicken and nachos) plus drinks. The food was perfect and we nearly licked the plates. I'm researching the drink "painkiller" and so far this one was the best by far. My husband had a bloody Mary and said they did a great job with it. The service was good and our waitress was very nice and did a great job. We will be back. This place sits on the waterfront so the view is awesome and maybe a little noisy but worth it.

Happy hour 4- 7 six nights a week. Cheapest beer in town after 4pm. Fat Tuesday frozen drinks sold here. Food is more for bar crowd not dinner. Casadias were good.

“We loved it here!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

My fiancé and I went here on our honeymoon off of a cruise ship. We were recommended to go here by a friend of the owner. When we got there and started talking, they called us by name and said "we are supposed to give you a round of drinks!" Laurel and Gus are excellent bartenders. We felt like we knew them both forever. The fish tacos are AMAZING!!!! Loved that they had fresh squeezed orange/lemon/or grapefruit crushes, too. The "love juice" smirinoff rum was great Bar is decorated with Ocean City, MD decor, which made us feel right at home. Great view of the water We even purchased shirts from there as a souvenir. We will definitely go back if we go to St.Thomas.

“Nice halfway point”
Reviewed October 16, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in to grab a beverage and check my emails via the shacks free wifi. The drinks are great, my suggestion being the pain killer. Didn't have time to eat, but saw some others taking in the fish tacos and were told they were great!
