The best beach bar on Cockleshell beach. Lion, the owner is very friendly and makes the best rum punch (Lion's punch) that we have had anywhere in the Caribbean. Be careful, or not, as they are very strong.

doesn't get as busy as reggae beach on cruise boat day. local cold beers are $2 however the food has become overpriced in the last few years. a friendly welcome is always there. loungers are available and you don't get hassled if you want to just chill out

While the bathroom leaves much to be desired, the nice sand, reasonable beach chairs and umbrellas, and beautiful views made up for it. The workers were so welcoming and nice. The masseuse was amazing! The food was very good - we enjoy trying local foods while travelling and this was definitely local flavor!

We visited Lion Beach Bar and Grill during our visit to Cockleshell Beach. It was a 30-45 minute ride from cruise ship terminal, but well worth the trip. You can opt for taxi with a group of people and it cuts cost and the taxi will pull pick you up at end of day. The bar has a great island... More

We went to Cockleshell Beach for the day on a stop for a cruise. We stopped at 6 different islands and got food everywhere we went. This place by far had the best food, drinks, and service out of any of the other islands. It really made our stop at the island an awesome one!!

Family of 9, ages 14 to 83, spent 3 hours here on June afternoon for lunch, rum punch, beer, and relaxing on the beach and in the water. I specifically chose this beach bar after visiting here 3 years ago and enjoying it so much with my husband that I wanted to share with the rest of the family. Last... More

Lion Rock Beach Bar & Grill is such a unique and fun beach bar! They offer rental beach chairs (including umbrellas) for only $5 each (a steal compared to the $40 I had to pay in Ft. Lauderdale just a couple months before) and they serve up some of the best rum punch on the island - also only $5.... More

We spent the day with Angela and Lion, could not have been any better! Weather was perfect, they set us up on the beach with chairs and an umbrella, drank rum punch and ate Lions delicious shrimp! We were there for at least five hours and hated to leave! Thank you for the experience, we will return!

We were on a cruise and a friend new about this beach and bar. I was very impressed with the food and the cocktails were very good. Make sure you visit this place if you are on the beach. You won't be disappointed!
