I gave this place an average review because the food was really great but our server was so unpleasant. The location was good and the beach attendant for the chairs and umbrellas was very nice.

This unassuming restaurant is located right at Shoal Beach. They offer free chaises with umbrellas with the purchase of a meal. The food is excellent so you cannot go wrong. This place is unassuming so we did not expect such terrific food. You can walk on the beach, swim, snorkel then come back for some lunch and a drink it... More

This place is on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Upon arriving into Shoal Bay we parked in the lot at the top of the hill and walked down to the left. When we arrived to the beach we were greeted by Hank who provided free lounge chairs and umbrellas with purchase of a meal. Buckets of... More

Service is ok at this little beach front place but the food is good. I had the goat, first time ever. It was delicious. Slow cooked in curry with the traditional rice and peas. From the rest in the party.. The veggie burger was good, for a veggie burger. The fish was really god. Moist and flavorful. And the hamburger... More

I'm assuming this is the beach bar simply called "Hank's", as the sign appeared on our visit several days ago. It must be the same since I noted that some previous reviewers clearly had the same server we did — a rude, surly teenage girl. The food and drinks were ok, nothing special, but this staff person made for an... More

Hank's has an amazing vegetarian stew and a veggie burger. My husband is not a vegetarian but enjoyed these items immensely. They have non-veg items as well of course but we did not try these. The food was hot and fresh and the service was friendly. Hands down, our favorite eatery on the island.

We visited Anguilla just for the day from St. Martin and decided to go to Shoal Bay for the beach and we were not disappointed. The water was so clear and the sand very fine. We spend several hours there and it was lovely. We ate at Mac and Hank's and the lunch was delicious (we all had seafood). The... More

Shoal Bay is a beautiful beach but a lunch at Mac and Hank's, which is right on the beach, should be avoided at all cost. The only positive thing I can say for it is the view is beautiful and the soda was nice and cold. My husband and I had lunch there yesterday. He had vegetable stew and I... More

Of the many beach bar options on Shoal bay this is one of the best. The view from inside the beach bar or beach side picnic tables is unobstructed and gorgeous. Hank and his family were an absolute pleasure. Some traditional bar food items with seafood options as well. Some of the alcoholic beverages are strong (relatively) so be sure... More

There are so many beach bars on Shoal Bay East and we decided to try Hank's one day for lunch. We were staying at SBV so just a short walk there. It was okay at first, we talked to Hank about the different drink concoctions and what was in them. Then we had the most sullen teenager wait on us... More
