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.

We arrived at Shiggidy Shack on Thursday at the suggestion of Calvin our driver who knows everything happening on the island. We were with our 12 year old sons and he thought they would really like the entertainment at the restaurant. He was definitely correct. The kids were thrilled by the performances. The sunset at the beach was very beautiful. The restaurant is right on the beach and your seats are in sand so women might want to be aware of that when choosing which shoes for the evening. Very casual dress would be in order. The food was ok, we had burgers, fish, and salads, and all was good, but not great. This is a fun evening out for everyone.

Shiggidy Shack is place you have to go to so you can get the island experience. We were told by several people not to miss. We got there around 7:30pm. (they do not take reservations) It is on the bay and you sit at folding tables and picnic tables. However, food was really good and not as costly as other restaurants. Try to avoid guy with monkey: you go to give him a tip and tells "you" he wants more (and as we were leaving he was VERY rude to me) Thursday night there is a man that eats "fire" He puts on a good show. Many taxis are available when you are ready to leave.

We didn't eat here, but did stop of drinks on several occasions. Our group always had a good time. Some bartenders somewhat reserved, but others know how to get the party started.

Food is OK, sometimes overcooked. Located right on the beach, live music. Personally, I would opt for sunset cafe.

During our stay at St. Kitts, we ate mainly at beach bars (shacks). Shiggidy was our least favorite. It was good, just not as good as the others.
