“Always Good!”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

We never miss Straw Hat, food, service and setting are consistently good. I love the prix fixe menu, my favorite choice is the chicken, Caesars salad and the garlic mashed potatoes, but this time I had the tomato pie and it was wonderful. DH had the snapper and thoroughly enjoyed it – their fish is always fresh and good, follow Straw Hat on Facebook and you will see pictures of huge fish they have just bought from a local fisherman. They have a new chef “Nick” who is doing some innovative cuisine, he is growing his own vegetables and creating new and exciting dishes. They have a very cozy bar with big screen tv’s for watching the games, their restaurant is right on the beach with a terrific view of the ocean and they have the best TI punch on the island.

“Good Lunch and Dinner”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

We ate both a lunch and dinner at Straw Hat. Excellent service was provided by a friendly staff. Both meals were fresh and tasty. Would not hesitate to return or recommend to others. By comparison, we also ate dinner at Blanchard's. We had a comparable meal to include cocktails and wine. The dinner at Straw Hat was $175.00. The dinner at Blanchard's was $300.00. The ambiance and service were similar; although, we enjoyed the feeling of outdoors at the Straw Hat.

“Great Seafood!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Wife & I completely enjoyed our dinner at Straw Hat. We enjoyed our soup, & were amazed at the great seafood entrees! We were seated right by the water, when it started to rain, & we were quickly moved out of the rain. We will be back to Straw Hat!

“Great choice for dinner”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Beautiful location, laid back vibe, good food. Adjust your setting to Island time, not hard when you are sitting outside overlooking the ocean, and you will be happy with everything including the service.

“Fresh seafood in beautifu setting”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We went twice this past trip and had great meals both times. I usually go for the crayfish but unfortunately they did not have any on either visit, choppy waters, so I tried the lobster instead, which was some of the best Anguillian lobster I have ever had. The tuna flatbread was also great. My husband does not eat seafood but was more than happy with his chicken on one night and pork belly on the other. The place can get loud when crowded but otherwise beautiful and airy. And the guitar player on one night was a very pleasant touch.
