Hands down the fastest service we had while on the island. I ordered the ribs and my wife got the ribs/chicken combo based on the reviews. My ribs were average fried plantains were very good. We also got the crab balls for and appatizer and I really liked them. I would stop back at Lee's if I had the chance... More

This restaurant is one of the closest to the resort where my wife and I stayed. We have been to this restaurant in the past on other visits to the island. On our most recent visit the food was definitely sub par. The ribs were tough. The server brought us the wrong bill. (more expensive bill) Server then short changed... More

Great happy hour and daily drink specials. Very much enjoyed the band. The food was quite pricey for what you get (better off at Skipjacks a few doors down). Overall, I'd go by for a pint and to enjoy the evening but skip for dinner.

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
