Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wildly over-hyped. Tourist trap.

Packed with cruise ship people. You know....the kind that grab beach chairs then put their stuff on a table for 3 hours without sitting there to "reserve it". They take over cornhole for an hour not even acknowledging others waiting to play.

Drinks were terrible. Terrible.

Essentially an over-priced t-shirt shop or you can think of it as an Applebee's on the beach.

Better food & drinks in the restaurant to the right.

The iconic and must see/do Soggy Dollar Bar while at JVD. The painkillers are only $7 and go down rather smooth. They taste even better when in water as the waves roll onto the shore. The Mahi Mahi Sandwich was fantastically fresh with just the right amount of spicy seasoning and unctuous sauce.

Off the ball and set sail for the island of Jost Van Dyke for our next mooring and last overnight on the boat (Jost is pronounced Yost).

We pulled into White Bay and dropped anchor because the four balls were taken. Tom really does NOT like the anchoring process as there are way too many moving parts / things. Dinghied ashore and we went to The SOGGY DOLLAR Bar and restaurant for two "Pain Killers" for Tom.

Finally found a location during this plague where there were PEOPLE to talk to.

What a change. The first time I visited Soggy Dollar there was just our boat in the bay and four people at the bar. Yup you could actually sit at the bar in those days. Today the beach is lined with numerous new bar restaurants to choose from. The day boats bring dozens if not hundreds of people ashore every day
But Whitesands Bay is still stunningly beautiful. Food and service excellent. Painkillers good but for my money not as good as Pussers in Sopers Hole.

It was our second time to Soggy Dollar Bar. This time in a cat rental. We came with another couple who had to stay little longer on the boat, so we left them the dinghy and swam to the shore like real visitors. You can always find there Painkiller, great people, happy atmosphere and great beach to spend time on. Always crowded, but line for drinks goes fast. We had tons of fun.

An institution in the BVI. Not a relaxing visit by any means, it’s crowded and not easy to find a table. That said, I was impressed that the Painkillers were half the price we had elsewhere on the islands. If you’re on Jost Van Dyke it’s worth the experience given the reputation and history.

So last time my wife and I were at Soggy Dollar was 2011. Pre- Irma and pre-me being 55.
Place had the same vibe - good drinks and social area. What had changed was the amount of very drunk and very loud “Proud American” patrons. Hadn’t seen such a large and obnoxious display of red white and blue and from such drunk people.
That being said it is not Soggy Dollars problem.
Pain Killer is still the best in the world. Everyone claims their own but hands down the best.
View is beyond description. Most beautiful beach there is on the BVI.
Ran into a lot of great people here. Lots of fun.
Can’t wait to come back.

This tour is about a 45 minute catamaran ride each way, but the destination was worth it. The beach was fabulous!!!! The Soggy Dollar bar was great! The lobster rolls are to die for!! Everyone was so friendly. Great day!!!

Went to The Soggy Dollar wth a group of 9 on New Years day. Of course, we had the pain killer which was great. But try the Bushwacker too. It's equally good and you can get it at the smoothie bar rather than standing in the long line at the bar. The beach is nice and the views are spectacular.

Fun place to spend the day whether you are staying on Jost Van Dyke or visiting via boat. Plenty of chairs to relax on, but bring a towel. The food and drinks are responsibly priced and delicious. There is a gift shop with a lot of shirt choices as well as other non trinket items. Everyone was friendly-met a lot of people. Also other bars up and down the beach.
