“Leave your shoes on the boat, prepare to quench your thirst!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Try the Stress Free Cocktail! Drinks are strong, and made with island love. This place is a gem. Jost Van Dyke is one of the coolest places I've ever been to, and this island bar is a must-visit. Can't wait to return!

“Drinks and ice.....so nice!!!!”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

Did not eat here but stopped in twice for bags of ice and drinks. Awesome drinks. Great kids helping their moms.....the moms acted like they really did care if you were there or not. Seems different without Ivan!!!

The reggae from the notebook computer blaring over the speakers were their main concern. So get your delicious cocktail and walk 5 paces South. Stand or sit on white sand and enjoy!!!!!!

“Barbecue and drinks”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

5/5 for the Thursday barbq and the drinks. The service at other times was lacking and the people really not that friendly. The barbecue was our favorite dinner of the week though. We felt like a local with the kids sitting at the tables(and under them) with us. Drinks were decent and it is very convenient.
