“Great vibe, food and drinks”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

The Ocean Lounge at Holland House offers excellent beachfront dining and cocktails on an open canopied deck area overlooking the boardwalk and beach of Great Bay in Phillipsburg.

Great entrees in the formal sit down area amd superb finger food appertizers in lounge area. Lounge charirs and drink service on the beach are available as well. People watching on the boardwalk makes for a relaxing time with the calm waters of Great Bay right in front.

“Ocean Lounge”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

It's fair to say that aside from the outstanding food, the yacht-feeling this restaurant conveys really makes it worth spending an evening there.
The menu is diverse and every single item has truly been delicious. As with most places, the staff is friendly and they offer great service.

“Nice setting, nice food”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

We stayed at the Holland House so had breakfast at the Ocean Lounge every morning, which was great. Also had lunch once and the food was very good, plus the views of the beach and comfy seating made it a nice place to have a leisurely meal. There were always lots of patrons which seems to indicate that the restaurant is well liked.

“restaurant”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

I have never put a critical review online in my 40 something years......Beware Bad People, Bad service, Bad Food. Awesome Bartender! You know things are going down hill when your bartender starts delivering food 2 hours after you've ordered. Now I have to say something good......beautiful property.

“Excellent Outside Dining Experience”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Ocean Lounge is in the Holland House Hotel in Phillipsburg, St. Maarten with beautiful atmosphere in protected outdoor dining. You can see the beach from your table but never feel as if you are exposed to the elements. The place is sophisticated in an island way. . . and the service is excellent. We had their prix fixe menu ($39 for three ample courses), and immensely enjoyed everything we had. They also were kind enough to substitute a fish dish for the steak one as a main course for our vegetarian. Cocktails were well made and ample, and the wine list, although not cheap was varied. Entertainment was provided by an accomplished vocalist along with some live accompanyment and programmed music. It's not lolo or a barbeque place, for sure, but if you want some romantic or more traditional dining, this is the place!
