Good for: Families with children, Local cuisine, Bar scene
Dining options: Lunch, Dinner, Late Night, Outdoor Seating
Description: we used this Breeze Bar situated right on the beach for lunch & dinner, the speciality was the whole lobster but we choose the fresh prawns with pleanty of trimmings. A lot of people use the Shack from the cruise boats at lunchtime then many local people hix in with the Marriot Hotel gests for dinner. Thursday nights are perticularly populary as they have a bonfire on the beach (no trouble with smoke as the wind is always off shore in high season) Friday & Saturday evening can be crowded and it is advised to book early on these days, Reasonable prices and good portions, book for a beach table if you want to hear yourself heard, Also does boat trips/ sport fishing, loverly sunsets if you get thier before 6pm.

Keeping this one short, if you go, go late afternoon on Thursday, get a table towards the stage/water in the sand and don’t order anything but their Spiny Lobster ($30) and cocktails.
Stayed long enough to eat, have a great sunset with steel drums and the bonfire to start, missed the fire dance and band afterwards, but heard it was very nice.
Their burgers leave a little to be desired compared to all the other great places on the island.
Mr. X's Shiggidy Shack Beach Bar is on our “return to” list for their Spiny Lobster and if nothing else, just to people watch. ;-)

Leading up to our trip to St. Kitts (just back) this was the place that got most of the "rave reviews", but honestly was our families least favorite meal. The setting on the "strip" is really neat, but the food was only ok, and the service was too slow even for "island time".

I have been coming to St Kitts for six years and have always followed the crowd to the Shiggety Shack Thursday night. This year, they have placed many more tables on the beach, the service is terrible- it took 11/2 hours to get served, the is food awful, the bathrooms disgusting. The flame eater no longer does the limbo (which was the real draw), he just eats fire and waves fire wands around his body. They have added a fairly ridiculous act of children doing what I suppose is a native dance in costume to a drum beat, following it up with asking for money the rest of the evening. IF there is a good band, it can be fun for dancing but that starts later and I would advise skipping everything else.

Trust me on this, first go on the Friday night when everyone is hanging out. The beers are cold and the food is well priced, you can have yourself a lobster in season and not feel the pain. One option go early and have some beach time and cold beers and then move on to an evening meal. One suggestion when night falls the insects come out, they don't bother everyone but I am concluding that I am a magnate.
