We visited Potters for a drink with the idea of coming back in the evening for a meal. It is a beautiful location and has a reputation as a fun place to be. We ordered 2 Carib beers and were rather shocked to be charged 12 dollars (6 dollars per bottle). I had the feeling we were being "taken for... More

Can't think of a better way to end an evening than dancing by the ocean. Great music, fun crowd and a nightly limbo contest where the tourists compete against the local champion. Picturesque location as well.

I had the best BBQ lobster ever. Period! service, drinks, sides all 4 stars Lobster 5 stars for small eaters 1/2 lobster is enough. entertainment/music/party after dinner was amazing. But this depends on the variety of guests and the amount of rumpunches you drink! For me great memories!

OK - this is not luxe dinning, but of all the places in the BVI's that we visited on our trip Potters By The Sea, just seemed the most authentic. The atmosphere was extremely rustic, and the lobster was FRESH and perfectly cooked. The service staff were very friendly, and even the quirkiness of having kraft salad dressings on the... More

What a fun time we had at Potter's. Sam, who turned out to be the owner, chef and party ringleader, also does the marketing, pulling up to our anchored catamaran in a dinghy in full song. He invited us to come to his place - "the one with the yellow roof" - for dinner and he was so engaging that... More

Fun atmosphere, full house with large lively groups enjoying lobster off the grill, followed by dancing, all hosted by Sam, the "mayor of Anegada", grillmaster and limbo dancer extraordinaire. Lobster was fresh and perfectly grilled; sides were ok. Some had the ribs instead of lobster, and reported that they were good. Staff were very focussed on delivering food from the... More

This a great place to end your day at Anagoda. The lobster dinner is wonderful and at the going price. The party afterward is energetic. You won't regret going here for dinner.

Sammy's lobster is the best on the island. It has a great smokey flavor. The location is nice with it's own dock. Fun vibe and great service.
