Had some of the best ribs ever. The folks there were both friendly and fun to be around. We had a great dinner and a great time. Thanks for the good time. Also, found out, unfortunately, that they will be closing sometime late April. I am told that the building owner is going to tear down a stretch of small... More

We went back 3 or 4 times for the ribs within 2 weeks. The ribs are fall off the bone tender, and have a wonderful flavor. Nice people that run the place.

This place has the best ribs in the Caribbean, bar none, I've tried them all. The barbecue here is better than a lot of pricey places in the states. Sadly they will be closing their doors at the end of April so for goodness sake go get the ribs while they are still available. The prices are great for anywhere... More

We enjoyed watching the staff try and catch the lobsters for people's dinners! The shrimp was great, but, when the wind blew in off the bay, there was an unpleasant odor that wafted across the dining room.

Our group has been coming to St. Maarten for years we ended up stopping here to catch a basketball game, some of us had wraps and some of us had Ribs. All the food was excellent and service was great as they were accommodating to our large group while they were just opening. The story of the restaurant is neat... More
