We discovered this authentic shack several years ago. What made our experience unique is that we were gong down an alley off Front Street through a flea market and smelled the grilling of the BBQ. When we approached it, the owner/cook gave us a taste of his ribs right off the grill. From that day forward, we were hooked. Every time we are in Phillipsburg, we have to go to Caribbean Blend for lunch. I assure you you will not be disappointed!!

Our group of 4 had spent the morning in town and we were ready for lunch. Walking along we smelled the grill from Caribbean blend and decided to stop. Staff was attentive and friendly. The grouper filet was large and delicious. Friends had chicken, ribs and another fish dish. All loved their lunch. Rum punches were 2 for $6. View is great, can’t go wrong here.

Wanted local food and this spot was attractive with the grilling onsite and casual atmosphere. When we got there a table of six was finishing up..we took a seat right by the on-site grilling chef. Took awhile to get someone’s attention - so we went up and ordered at the bar. Since the fish was made to order it took awhile. Also, we noticed a table got their meals before us as well...and ordering a beer took about ten minutes! What was really unsettling was all the flies! Every second we had to sway them away. Of course it didn’t help that the table of six that left had their leftover meals sitting there for 20minutes (no exaggeration). The food was decent. My bf got the marlin fish which was freshly grilled and he said it was okay and the jerk chicken I had was basically wings that had a bit of a kick to it but tasted like bbq. overall, it’s worth a visit and maybe try the whole snapper (since most others rave about it) but I’d definitely sit by the fan and won’t be going too hungry!

My husband and I have spent an extended vacation on the island of Sint Maarten post Irma. They are recovering well on the Dutch side of the island. One of our favorite eating spots, The Caribbean Blend Resturant weathered the storm and has been restored. We had the Whole Red Snapper and boy let me tell you it was better than delicious!!! The owner and chef Hosea is dangerous with his grilling skills!!! He has a special sauce that he cooks the snapper in and it is simply delicious!!! The fish was not overcooked and it was FRESH!!! He plated us with peas, plantains, a salad and rice. This has been the best meal so far on the island....except for his grilled chicken wings we had the other night....don’t get me started on those!!! If you want an authentic island meal, you will not, you can not go wrong with a meal from the Caribbean Blend Resturant!!
