Went here for lunch on the advice of Everything SXM page. We sat down about 1 pm, one of three tables being served. It didn't take long for drinks to be delivered, but our food took nearly 40 minutes. We had sandwiches with fries and by any standard the portions were tiny. My philly cheese steak was about 1/3 the... More

Great place to unwind for sunset cocktail near the water. It is steps from Oyster Bay Beach Resort. You might want to bring some bug spray if you are sensitive to bug bites. Food is good. comfy casual family friendly

We've eaten here every year for the past four years. It started out good then had a down year last year. We had a great experience this year. The calamari appetizer was delicious, my wife had declared their snails the best she has had. I recommend the creole red snapper. No complaints from anyone at our table and the wine... More

St. Maarten is one of my favourite Caribbean Island and although I like Maho Beach(where the Airport is), this Dawn Beach is more beautiful and Mr. Busby's is the place to be. Friendly service, ice cold beer, good food and beautiful views. What else do you want?

Mr. Busby's is a great beach bar serving food, cold drinks and a friendly smile! My kids loved that they could so easily access from the beach and my husband loved that they combed the beach for orders! It was a perfect combination.

Went twice for drinks, good place for a beer or cocktail right next to the beach. They serve pub food during the day, more of a restaurant menu at night. Friendly service and relaxed atmosphere.

Mr. Busby's is a place that everyone loves. Walk from the beach to the bar in your suit with no flip flops ! Food and drinks are reasonable. Mr Busby's also has chairs & umbrellas for rent. $12.00 a day. Cheap in comparison to some other beaches that rent the same. Food and drink are regular beach bar foods and... More

We ate at Mr.Busby's Beach bar several times throughout our week stay. We had dinner there our first night and lunch pretty much every day after. I had the Philly Cheesesteak sandwich with onions and it was so good I had it every day after. The service was great too! A tip if you eat here.....you will have to ask... More
