“Rock lobster for dinner”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

A short walk from the Marriott St. Kitts, and well worth it. We had a wonderful meal in an open air covered patio. Service was top notch and food was excellent. Price was reasonable and we saved on cab fare.

“Meh”
Reviewed 30 September 2012

Convenient location if you're staying at the Marriott, but other than that I wouldn't ever recommended eating here. The food is just ok, and the lobster (ironically enough) was the worst lobster I've ever had. Extremely dried out and too tough to eat.

“Great Escape from Resort Food”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

We really enjoyed our seafood dinner at Rock Lobster while staying in St. Kitts this past Labor Day weekend. Both of us had the grilled shrimp dinner and it was exactly what fresh seafood should be and the perfect portion! The location isn't too fancy but it was nice to be outside with the island breeze.

It was also nice to venture away from "resort food" for the night without having to go too far since cabs around the island can be a bit pricey!

Would Highly Recommend Rock Lobster (over Shiggidy Shack for sure) if you're heading to the Marriott on St. Kitts!

“Best (and largest) lobster”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

I have eaten lobsters in several countries, but the one I have just eaten here in St. Kitts and Nevis, in the Rock Lobster, is something different. A 2-pound lobster, finely cooked, very essential, keeping the original flavor, just a little bit of butter, and garnishments (brocoli, mashed potato, carrots) on the side, in a separate plate. Really spectacular. And the peoploe of the restaurant, looks like they took as much pleasure as myself. At least 4 of them came to my table to ask how was the lobster (and the caramelized banana, with vanilla rum, that I ate later on, aslo very, very good). So, who likes lobster has a moral duty to take note of this place.
