Decided to go for cocktails with H.Toad friends. Great place to view all the in-coming yachts. The cocktails are great & appetizers even better. Stop by for lunch. Great fish&chips. Have Ice Cream if you just want to chill out. Delicious

Great service, food, views and Bloody Mary's. It's our favorite breakfast stop before hitting the beach.

Been here every time we come to Sit Maarten, The Food just keeps getting better and better. We had Fresh fish and chips and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service is excellent, and the food is always good. This is a place not to be missed.

Stumbled across this while trying to find customs to clear-in (we arrived by sailboat). Friendly staff and incredible Fish and Chips--although I substituted the Chips for mashed potatoes. Wonderful views and nice casual laid-back atmosphere.

Great place to see the SXM scene. Bar tenders are some of the best on the island. Grouper fingers are good. 2 dollar Heineken all day long.

We stopped by here for breakfast. It was great sitting by the water and watching all the boats lined up, waiting for the bridge to open! They do have good bloody mary's and standard brunch fare.

We came here several times throughout our trip because we liked it so much. Beautiful views of the harbor and yachts, great drinks, and good food. The grouper fingers were my favorite!!!! It's fun to watch the boats come through the bridge too. Super friendly...More

This is one of our favorite restaurants on island. We frequently go for breakfast or lunch. LOVE the grouper fingers. LOVE the bloody marks. Great place to watch the boats go through the drawbridge.

Hi there, Sorry to say, I don't know the correct answer to that. Maybe someone else can help you.... / poprim
Is the restaurant open to the public or just members of yacht clubs? We are members of the Hyannis, MA Yacht Club and would like to dine there during our stay.
