“Make sure you see Dave!”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

I went to this place specifically because of the responses of the owner, Dave, on previous reviews. You cant always make everyone happy, so I had to see what the hype was about. While I am sure there is some truth to some of the reviews as every establishment is not perfect. But we experienced a good time on all three occassions we were there. The service was a little slow at times, but no different than other establishments and they were very responsive when we needed them. We had the opportunity to speak with the owner on a few occassions and found him to be a very social guy and he remembered us each time. Good place to play pool. Only negative was the three tables were missing some balls on different nights, but otherwise great place to play. We will be back next time to buy the place...need a good deal Dave.

“Fun atmosphere, if a little loud”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

We'd read the reviews on Doolittle's and decided to give it a try for dinner. Like most of the places in Marigot Bay, you need to take the water taxi. The setting on the water is nice and the vibe is upbeat thanks to the music. Not really a romantic place. The food is good and service was acceptable. On Mondays they have a 2-for-1 deal on the 3-course menu if the lady wears a flower in her hair, which makes the prices much more reasonable. If you want to really get drunk, try the rum-banana flambe for dessert. WOW. :D We would eat here again.

“Great view and good food!”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

We ate at Doolittle's for several meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) while we stayed in Marigot Bay. We tried different entrees almost every time and they were all tasty. However, our favorite appetizer was definitely the fried calamari. My wife has a food allergy and all of the staff was aware of it and were very accommodating. It can be hard for us to go out eat because of her food allergy and the staff made it very easy for her to eat here. We saw the owner, David, every night and he always greeted us and made sure we were doing okay. One evening he took us out on his boat during sunset and gave us a tour of the bay. He definitely made our honeymoon a little more special. This restaurant offers amazing views of the bay and sunsets. Great place to sit down relax and eat some good food.

“Agreed... Skip it”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

We were all excited to go here and what a disappointment. First of all we drove ourselves and it was very difficult to find never mind almost driving down a dirt road by accident that was so steep we would not have been able to stop!
You need to take a ferry over to it and by ferry we mean a little boat with two locals driving it. They were very nice and walked us to the restaurant. we sat down for lunch and looked over the menu. Decided on just some chicken and were told they were out of chicken. We then asked for some rice and were told no rice. we just ordered a salad and then looked around a little and decided to go back. we found our ferry driver and both were at the back of the boat (Napping or something) when we approached the boat they softly told us that they were repairing the boat and to walk down the beach and take another one. we began to walk away and saw a gentleman approaching and I was just getting ready to tell him that he had to follow us when he called the driver by name! As soon as that happened the driver ran over to us and gestured for us to come back. He then whispered to us that that was his boss and he would be very upset if he knew they were repairing the boat and so we all were able to go with them back to the other side. Whew! what a deal. I don't feel so bad now with my driving lol I kind of fit right in. lol
The worst part was when we got home and received our credit card statement and noticed they charged us twice for our meal! I was able to call the credit card and dispute it.
Save your time and money and go elsewhere.

“OK dinner....bad service...don't be misled”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Once ferried over to this little island, we were weary from traveling and ate dinner at Doolittles. The dinner was mixed.

Roasted pumpkin soup while plentiful lacked any hint of pumkin and had no flavor whatsoever. Also sampled was the tomato, eggplant and goat cheese brushetta. This was fresh and flavorful.
Dinners were Doolittle's Jerk salmon. Salmon was cooked well and served with tasty fruit salsa. Jasmine rice was soft and flavored with small pieces of carrots and tiny peas.
My husband had Three Peppercorn Marlin and enjoyed.
Baby back ribs were my oldest daughter's choice and fell off the bone. Other daughter had Creamy Linguini with shrimp which was good. Desserts were great. VERY EXPENSIVE.....$267 US with one drink each.

Here's where it went horribly wrong. next morning we were asked what room we were in and told continental breakfast was included. We chose off that menu due to that fact. meal was one egg, a piece of toast and some small wedges of fruit. When done, the brought us a check with $84 US dollars!!!! Turns out waitress was new and misinformed. We could have ordered off of the regular menu and it would have been cheaper though still prices.

Argued with manager(?) who had to make at least 3 phone calls to someone else. The whole time, being eaten alive by the mosquitos that infest this resort. Were given back $20

so beware....extremely expensive and we had better meals in Rodney Bay later in the week.

Do Have to say it was a nice atmosphere. Outside on the water. Tranquil and lovely.
