A trip to the island is not complete until you stop at a roadside stand to enjoy the local food. Captain D's does not disappoint. We enjoyed the food as did many others in the area. Convenient if staying in the Simpson's Bay area. We walked from our resort to grab some great food to take back to our place.... More

We had the jerk wings and the ribs at say 3 pm in the afternoon. The young lady behind the counter was very short with us when I asked about the other items on the menu. They didn't have anything else -- they ran out of sides. We would have come back but the attitude turned me off.

Try everything the staff tells you to try...ribs and chicken of course, but that relish in the little container and that drink called Pond Water - not to be missed!

We enjoy eating local when we travel and have searched out St. Maarten LoLo's in particular. Having read reviews about Captain D's and always seeing people at the stand, we decided to try this one mid-afternoon. So, here is the gist of our experience . . . As my friend and his wife walked up to the counter to order,... More

We stopped by after seeing all the people. We got the ribs, 1/2 chicken, macaroni pie and rice & peas for $20. We had enough food for 2 days. This place is amazing and the food is wonderful.

We know BBQ ribs and Capt D's are the best on the island. We come here every time we are on St. Maarten (every 4 months) and get 2 racks of ribs and sides like Bami and johnny cakes. It is SOOOO good!!!
