Went there for breakfast 2 times, both times were great. Liked the welcome from the owner and the casual atmosphere. They were in the process of restoring their deck and I loved seeing them doing it.

We had dinner and cocktail with friends. Fun atmosphere, great waitstaff. Lot’s of fun watching the boat coming through the bridge. Tell your friends, this a not to be missed thing to do when in SXM

They are rebuilding and making it much better by pouring concrete and bigger deck. The food is as good as it always has been.

As usual, absolutely mandatory bar food stop, BEST fresh grouper fish fingers, anywhere, huge portions, watch the yachts squeeze through the simpson bay bridge, absorb the noisy vibrant local vibe,
