We stopped in here for the music and drinks and dessert. Great location with excellent key lime pie. Loved the Christmas Decorations.

Lee's was the one of the places I absolutely had to go back to on my next visit to St. Martin. My first experience was out of this world. This visit was just average. On my first visit to St. Marten, I ate at Lee's twice. This visit, I went the one time and didn't consider going back a second... More

Stopped by with the family because it was close to our hotel. The service was fast, seating semi-outdoors and the Food was tasty. You get to pick a live longer sterling from the tank and even hold it. Then, they grill it. It was the best. Seasoned well, hot.

Have come to SXM for 18 years. Lee's was the first place we ate at and one of our favorites. Don't go as often since we stay on the other side of the island. Went this trip and the ribs and chicken were so dry we really couldn't eat them. Very disappointing. A remodel took the ambience of a beach... More

Always a good meal. Ribs and Chicken with rice'n peas, potato salad, plantain, or coleslaw. Good for lobster, steak, or just a good hamburger. Closed on Mondays.

We always enjoy Lee's. The prices are very reasonable. The barbecue fish or ribs are a good choice. We been going to Lee's many years and I have to say we never had a bad meal. I hope they can stay in business based on what I been reading about the latest court judgements.

We have been coming to SXM for the last 10 years and usually visit Lees twice during the stay to eat and enjoy the entertainment. The last visits have seen slow service getting the drinks and food . The ribs are smaller and dry with only plain rice with limited sauces available . My burger was on a huge pieces... More

Went to this restaurant while in st Maarten. Across from Royal Palm Resort. Ribs were advertised. All four of us ordered ribs. They were dry ribs, no sauce but one sauce on the table. Ribs were described as a full rack, we were sure we could all finish the meal, wrong. We did finish, the ribs were cut up, which... More

Some years ago we used to go to Saint Martin and we used to stay in the french side.Last year we decided to go change side. The first evening we chose Lee's. Everything was great and it is not very expensive. The staff is very nice and there's a beautiful atmosphere.Very good!
