OK - this is not luxe dinning, but of all the places in the BVI's that we visited on our trip Potters By The Sea, just seemed the most authentic. The atmosphere was extremely rustic, and the lobster was FRESH and perfectly cooked. The service staff were very friendly, and even the quirkiness of having kraft salad dressings on the... More

Sailed BVIs for a week. On anegeda this is the place to be. The lobsters were amazing. It's a fun casual place. With limbo and dancing to end the night. Our food got mixed up and didn't come for an hour. But the boss gave us the meal For free! Paid for the booze only. What a gracious host. I... More

What a fun time we had at Potter's. Sam, who turned out to be the owner, chef and party ringleader, also does the marketing, pulling up to our anchored catamaran in a dinghy in full song. He invited us to come to his place - "the one with the yellow roof" - for dinner and he was so engaging that... More

Fun atmosphere, full house with large lively groups enjoying lobster off the grill, followed by dancing, all hosted by Sam, the "mayor of Anegada", grillmaster and limbo dancer extraordinaire. Lobster was fresh and perfectly grilled; sides were ok. Some had the ribs instead of lobster, and reported that they were good. Staff were very focussed on delivering food from the... More

This a great place to end your day at Anagoda. The lobster dinner is wonderful and at the going price. The party afterward is energetic. You won't regret going here for dinner.

Sammy's lobster is the best on the island. It has a great smokey flavor. The location is nice with it's own dock. Fun vibe and great service.

The three of us were seated next to a table of twenty who, naturally, were extremely loud. We could not converse without shouting. After the meal I told the manager that he should not seat a small group next to a table for twenty. He was unapologetic, and even told me that he would not tell me how to do... More

Visited there many times in the past. They do make the best lobster and ribs on the island. This time we did not have time for dinner but stopped in for a couple of drinks before we had to leave. Be back again

It's simple. Order ahead and get a big lobster. They grill it and you eat it on a picnic table. Don't get fancy. Do what's local and best. You can check out the big cage of them on the dock. They will grill it and bring it to you to destroy/devour. Ok, apparently the lobster pasta is pretty dope, too.... More
