Restaurant details
Dining options: Late Night, Outdoor Seating, Reservations
Description: LIVE MUSIC EVERY THURSDAY FROM 8.00 A bright red original 1959 London Double Decker bus. Located next to Sugar Ridge Hotel and just a 5 minutes walk from Jolly Harbour this icon is impossible to miss. The bus has been completely renovated and provides seating for 40 guests. We did our best to maintain the historic integrity of this British classic. Or sit outside enjoying the breeze in our lush tropical garden. Delicious fish, crispy chunky chips, homemade mushy peas and tartar sauce and finally some pickles give you the classic fish & chips experience. Beyond that we serve shrimp for those who are less into fish we are happy to offer succulent sausages and rotisserie chicken with any of our side dishes.

“More Like Heaven Than Shell”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Although we stayed at an all-inclusive, we had read about Shell’s and decided to have our last dinner in Antigua there. It was totally worth it! Fantastic fish/chicken and chips---and rum punch. We enjoyed reading the notes in the bus while we waited for the food. I highly recommend it.

“Very Different but Good”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

A local mainstay located on a double decker bus from England. They offer traditional fish and chips as well as fried shrimp. Outside eating, easy to get to and different from the rest.

“Finally, good fish and chips”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

In the States, the fish in 'fish and chips' consists of several small pieces of fishes but here at Shells Double Decker, finally fish that actually is one big piece of fish fillet ; quite tasty.

Fish and chips cost about 15 USD and well worth it.

The double decker bus is fun as they actually have tables inside the bus for those who want to eat inside. Lots of tourists has signed their names inside as well which is fun to see and hopefully return back one day to find your name.

One final thought for those from the states, if you drink diet coke, don't order one in Antigua. They don't add any of the artificial sugar, thus it feels like drinking an non flavor carbonated water, not pleasant at all. Of course, that may not be a bad thing but its not what you will be use to or like if you are use to the sweeteners.
