“Nice for lunch”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

The lobster roll is great. The Drink Right Keep Left is a cool and tasty drink. Really everything on the mine is tasty. Kids will find hots dogs to eat and the bird feeder attracts very colorful birds.

“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

Quaint and a fun ride to get there. Drink Right Keep Left is probably the best drink I had all week! The lobster roll was fantastic. Yum! My friend had the pulled pork and she was raving about it. Will definitely be the top of the list for a return visit.

“To die for lobster roll..”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Once again, we were not disappointed with the food or beverages - just no "Drink Right - Keep Left" stickers or Buster. An added bonus though were the bananaquits!!

“Average food friendly owners”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

First off we were disappointed but that's less of the fault of the place and more of listening to the reviews on trip-advisor. If you like cheap (and I mean cheap - sub $30 for two people) American fast food then this is it. It's 4.5 stars on value for money but nothing else. Menu consists of four types of hotdog, four sandwiches (including the lobster roll) and four types of taco and nachos. We had the famed pulled pork nachos. Pork was nice but nothing special and covered in packet kraft cheese heated in a microwave. Beef taco was fine for the price but certainly not a 'Mexican' taco lacking flavour. A chilli dog, same, it was cheap. We were in and out in forty minutes and spent $35 including tip. the people were lovely but please do not listen to the rubbish about 'innovative sauces and great cooking'. It's a cheap, tasty, quick lunch stop that is average so if you're expecting 4.5 stars and best in St John or Coral Bay you'll be disappointed.

“Superb Sauces”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

Look past the dirt yard and the lawn chairs. This little place has some of the best, most cleverly prepared food on the island. The chef makes his own sauces and they are delicious. Great place to eat.
