In hopes of spending a day on Scilly Cay, we drove to over to Island Harbor. We could see Scilly Cay in the distance but sadly it was destroyed with rubble everywhere. The sounding area is very industrial with fisherman and construction everywhere. The water...More

Hi ron5980, Thanks for keeping Scilly in mind. But yes, since Hurricane Irma hit (Sept. 2017) and with Eudoxie's passing (Dec. 2017), we have not been able to open, as the island is still in shambles. As of right now, we have crews helping clean,...More

We always include Anguilla as a nice day trip when we're in St.Maarten, and we regularly chose Scilly Cay for lunch. Is the lobster lunch expensive? At $75 I don't think so. They're huge, tasty (and freshly caught -- it is across from a fishing...More

This is our 3rd time here--and we will go again when we visit next. Just a great place to enjoy great food, good drinks and a fun atmosphere. Make no mistake, it can be pricey, but well worth it. The chicken and lobster were awesome!

I was really disappointed in Scilly Cay. The place wasn't clean. There were plastic cups littered around, the lounge chairs need to be fixed, and our table was dirty. The food is very expensive!
