Great atmosphere followed up with amazing BBQ (fri?), and the house band makes for a memorable evening. The demographic is eclectic in that locals mingle with billionaire Yachyies as well as seasonal Yacht cruisers like myself. A great mixed bag with the same goal in mind. Enjoy this island and all it has to offer.

My husband and I were staying on Peter Island for our honeymoon, and our catamaran captain recommended this place noting that it was a local favorite. He told us they had live music and BBQ every Friday and Sunday night starting at 6, so we decided to check it out that Friday! It's an awesome little spot, doesn't look like... More

Friday night dinner and music that starts at 7. Mahi-mahi tasted great as did the ribs, chicken and the rice. Reasonably priced dinner for about $18-22, depending on how many meats you want to try. Service was good with a relaxing ambiance. A few people danced to the 2 person band which sounded pretty good. They played for a long... More

The Elm has a nice beach barbecue on Friday and Sunday nights. They have a good house band - the Elmtones. Barbecue dinner is ribs, chicken, or fish. Dinner is good, and the dancing afterward is great.

We ate the chicken and ribs and both were great - along with the atmosphere and the jovial crowd. Busy - making reservation will help!

the Elmtones and the barbecue ribs are the best value in Cane Garden bay. Sunday night is more well attended than Friday from what we can tell, but the food is great and the band exceptional, Come for the BBQ and then stay to dance off those calories!!

The night we went we were with a group of 10 people some of them we were meeting for the first time. The atmosphere is typical island flavour. Open air restaurant with the Chef BBQ'ing right beside you. (and the smoke filling up the venue I might add) The entrées the night we went were bbq'd chicken or ribs. I... More
