Restaurant details
Good for: Local cuisine, Bar scene, Families with children
Dining options: Late Night, Lunch, Dinner, 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.

“the genuine caribbean experience”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Don't be put off by the scruffy appearance or the crowd of kids hanging around, the Shiggidy Shack will serve you up a very good dinner in a wonderful beach atmosphere. We had fish ( grouper, shrimp ) and it was very tasty.
I would strongly recommend it.

“Unsanitary conditions make it unfit to serve food”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

We'd heard that this is the place to be on Thursday nights. The beach and bonfire were nice, but anything good about this establishment was completely undone by the horribly filthy bathrooms. If this restaurant were located in the US, it would be shut down by the health department. Even if you think you can get through a meal without having to use the restrooms, consider that they are the same ones that food servers use. Soap and paper towels were nowhere to be found! A few members of our party got sick toward the end of our vacation week and this seems the most likely source. Avoid!!!

“Great Sunsets, Fabulous Lobster”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

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. ;-)

“Nice evening on the beach; food and service so-so”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

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".
