Lee's had such great reviews I was expecting so much more! Ambiance is dated as was the live music on Friday night, though it was quite busy (high season) so we were prepared for a fun evening. We did indeed have a fun evening but Lees did not contribute to it. Service was slow and charmless..took 45 minutes after our... More

I didn't really hate this place until the food came and we asked about it. We ordered fish and chips, $17.50 or so. The french fries are typical frozen fries. The fish nondescript. We asked what it was, Swai. Google it. This is Vietnamese fish farm, fake catfish, $2 a pound. I wonder how many unwanted chemicals I ate. Hard... More

have been going to Sxm for 18years eat in Lee's at least 3 of our 10 day stays, always great food and service, huge portions. the music is enjoyable never overpowering. Please tell me March is not the end of a great run, this would be very unfair to the owner staff and customers

We arrived to St Maarten New Year's Eve , arrived at restaurant around 930, it was right across the street from our hotel(royal palm) they sat us down and could not be more pleasant. The grilled Mahi and lobster were fantastic. The grilled chicken was very good also. They made our New Year's Eve, a family of 4 showing up... More

The food is good but it takes way too long to get to you. I understand I had to wait awhile when it was busy but even on a slow day it takes about a year to get your food. Do not order the potato salad as it is hardly ever fresh. I had an episode where I asked the... More

We've been going to St Maarten for 30 years and we always make sure we stop into Lee's for great snapper dinner. Casual atmosphere and good live music. Lee always so friendly. We heard there were some issues about him having to close my March😟we certainly hope that is not true

We love Lees! It's on our list of can't miss restaurants here. Always get the ribs. We prefer to sit in the back by the water.

The live music is what brought us in. My husband & I were wanting to eat, not fall asleep and Lee's was the perfect spot. The live music was fun upbeat and danceable. Great family or couple atmosphere. Casual dining. We sat at the bar and the service was very good.

Thank inFlightFun
