Nothing fancy but the freshest, tastiest grillled lobster you will find. Fantastic friendly staff, relaxed beach front atmosphere and even took our own wine to compliment the meal. Definitely worth a visit..

The title says it all! The best grilled lobster I've ever eaten. Big succulent lobster. Caribbean lobsters are nothing like Maine lobsters. Caribbean lobsters have no claws. Excellent and Barry is the best! The restaurant was closed but we saw Barry and he came out to our mooring ball to say hello. When we inquired about dinner he said they... More

I loved it. They offered me aloe when I had a sunburn. Great people. A little pricey at times, but still one of my favourite lobster restaurants. This place introduced me to lobster... and it was a GREAT Introduction! By the way, the date I visited is wrong.

Last year when we arrived to Anegada we had trouble getting our mooring and Barry came to our rescue. After helping us he recommended his restaurant and with his help in mind we decided to try it. After having visited many restaurants and having Anegada lobsters these were the best by far. Not tough and very moist with great flavor.... More

This was my first experience with Caribbean lobster and it did not disappoint. They flame grill it in the shell and split it open for you. Sweet meat for sure. You also get a sale and bread for $50 with the he captain of your boat getting a free meal. Not bad. Can't beat the scenery and great hospitality.

The Whistling Pines would be reason enough to visit Anegada. A couple of fantastic pines which really whistle in the wind, add a nice and quiet bay, a wonderful sunset, and the best grilled lobster I have EVER had. The restaurant works on a reservation basis only, so they know exactly how many lobster they will have to go and... More

I think it was Barry that stopped by the boat after we moored. He delivered a reservation form- required for dinner here and made reservations for those who could decide on the spot. Most of us had the curried lobster which was yummy - even if a hair overdone. Their regular Anegada lobster was melt in your mouth good, I'm... More

Our group of 23 held a birthday party for one of the group here. We essential took over the restaurant, and the staff went out of their way to make sure that it was a special night. The service was great, the food was spectacular, and the setting, with the full moon in the sky was just terrific! The food,... More

This is a beautiful location for a romantic dinner. My husband & I stayed in Anegada for 5 nights. Our experience at Whistling Pine was perfect. I had half a lobster and must say it was more tender than that elsewhere on the island (but still not up to par with Maine lobster in Northern New England; cannot compare 2... More

Lobster is one of my favorite foods and a trip to Anegada for one of their lobsters was a must do on my Virgin Island adventure. Barry convinced us to try his restaurant - Whistling Pines as we were mooring for the evening. The lobster on the beach at Whistling Pines was impressive! A large lobster for $50 with sides... More
