“Eat and Be Merry!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We thought this would be too casual for what we were looking for the first night and it was but we returned the following days for lunch, snack and late desert, drink and of course the spectacular view. It's a great place to meet folks and enjoy the scenery and have a good time. It's a friendly place that has seating on the beach as well. The food is good but nothing spectacular. The artichoke dip was great, the conch fritters were fabulous and my husband loved their burger. Their painkillers were strong but just didn't taste very good -- it was their allspice or something close too it that just didn't agree with my palate. Enjoy!

“Great view with good food!”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We had lunch here today. I had the grilled chicken with artichoke dip and my husband had the tuna sandwich. Both dishes were very good. The service was a little slow and while the food and drinks were reasonable, this was the most expensive meal we have had on the island in the past week. We will be back but most likely will come during happy hour when at least the drinks will be discounted.

“I thought it would be a tourist trap...I was wrong”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Popular with tourists and locals alike the beach bar is a great place for drinks..and surprisingly for food too. The selection is a pretty basic bar food like fish and chips, burgers, etc. but everything is prepared very well. Definitely a good place to stop for lunch in between beach stops. As for drinks - they really do have the best bushwackers on the island. Wow! They also pack a powerful punch - so be sure to take advantage of that food menu:) Beach Bar is also good after hours...a bit more crowded...but with the lively atmosphere and live music it makes for a fun night out.

Yummy bar food-tuna bites and nachos are the best. AWESOME atmosphere right on the water. This is always one of our first stops and we are never disappointed!
