On the beach during daylight, go up in bathing suit and enjoy a period out of the Sun. Friendly staff.

We came over here based on reviews and we wanted to visit SBE. We drove from FS and it is well worth it. Gwen and her staff are super nice and fun to talk with. Ribs and sides were amazing and beer well priced. As long as you drinking/eating you can use chairs. There are plenty of them and umbrellas... More

We stopped by on a whim and decided to get a couple of drinks. Staff was very friendly and welcoming, drinks were cheap and they even take credit card! You can sit inside, on their deck, on a park bench, or on the beach. It's a great stop. Don't miss it!!

My wife and I stopped at Gwen's on 11/13/2016 for beach, drinks and live music. We had a great time. Today Friday the 18th we went for lunch and it was terrible, not only worst meal experience on the island but the worst in a long time. It was not crowded so maybe that should have been the first sign.... More

We have visited Gwen's in the past, but no more. The service is unpredictable and there are much better choices on Shoal Bay East. Its not worth the walk, in my opinion.

My wife and I went with another couple to explore more of Anguilla. We went up to Shoal's Bay East to check out the beach and stumbled upon Gwen's Reggae Grill. What a pleasant surprise!! We ordered drinks, enjoyed the beach and scenery, but the best part of it all was talking with Gwen. She has a heart of gold... More

Cool little spot. Service was friendly and maybe the best rum punch on the island. Beach is worth a visit. Grab a punch and keep walking.

We visited for 2 reasons: Rum punch and to see the Scratch band. Punch did not disappoint. Strong with a great flavor. Burger and curried chicken sandwich were very good, But the band stopped playing before 3 (said it was a break) but they never returned. Would try Elodia's for Sunday Fun day next time..their steel drum band was awesome.

Our concierge recommended Gwen's since we were heading out to explore the island. Strong rum punch - yummy lunch served with a curry pasta salad, coleslaw, and fries. My veggie burger was $16 - so a little pricey - but the view and the sides made up for the pricetag. We enjoyed this spot and would go back!
