This place is a magnet for boat travelers. Friendly,safe,cheap and above all fun. Drink specials are excellent. Music for dancing at night and it's right on the beach. A dinghy dock in front. Perfect !!

We had been hearing great things about this restaurant all week while staying at Scrub island, but when we got there is was not a very good place. There were two waitresses working the whole place so it took about 20 minutes to get our first and last (unfortunately) round of drinks. The chef ended up coming out from the... More

We were staying in the Guest House and walked out for a meal. We also were approached by the manager to move mid-meal to make room for others. We opted not to and they were fine with that. It was our last night in Tortola and wanted the view we were enjoying. Food was good, beer was cold. Left full... More

Food was good, more punch than rum, service uneven (Got busy halfway through supper and the manager wanted to move us to make more room. A little off putting, but the waitress was good). Certainly got sufficiently fed and watered.

It is your typical BVI bar music, bar food and sketchy service. Had a great view and music was good for dancing but had to wait over an hour for bar food. Evidently the cook walked out or something like that. Too many fun bars to bother going back there.

Clean, well run restaurant. Food was decent and service was good. Had a great Island feel. We each had a fish entrée and were satisfied. Banana Daiquiri's were good too.

A little beach bar that serves average drinks. The staff acts annoyed by your presence, the managers seem to annoy the staff, and the food made two of us ill for 24 hours afterwards. I should have known. The place was dirty and the kitchen shared walls and plumbing with the bathrooms. The only reason to go here would be... More

The cook went AWOL. The owner had to step in and cook dinner. We waited over two hours to eat. Almost everyone got burgers and they were luke warm, fries cold. My chicken and rice were passable. My sister in law said her drink was pretty watered down. We probably won't be back. They had really good music and we... More
