My husband and I met 2 other couples there for dinner. The food was pretty good can't complain but the service wasn't too prompt. There wasn't too many tables so I didn't understand why we waited so long for our check. But overall decent experience.

We just had to check this place out because it has such a cool name. They pour generous cocktails and the food was good. A little on the expensive side for what you get though. The BLT could use some more bacon.

Beachside bar on the 'strip' on Timothy beach. Pretty basic, open concept with good variety of beers & liquors available. Mr X was doing minor renovations adding a new deck area when we last visited. Local go-to joint for many ex-patriot English - particularly on...More

But the beer is more than the other restaurants on the strip. I did not eat there but the food looked good.

We have been to St. Kitts 5 times now and we never visit without making several stops at Shiggidy Shack. Easy to get to, friendly, and great food. Not fancy at all but just perfect island feel. When they have Lobster, it is almost magical...More

Compliments to the chef! On the beach by Timothy Beach Hotel, casual, entertaining lunch at the bar, just the ticket!

Went for a late lunch and there was hardly any customers, the owner showed us to a table I tried to make conservation and he was quite rude, the waiting staff was no better and the food certainly didn't make up for their attitude

It would be a $25 cab ride round trip. If you go, eat at one of the other restaurants on the strip
Does Mr X still run the water taxi between cruise dock and Beach Bar. Thanks

we used this Breeze Bar situated right on the beach for lunch & dinner, the speciality was the whole lobster but we choose the fresh prawns with pleanty of trimmings. A lot of people use the Shack from the cruise boats at lunchtime then many local people hix in with the Marriot Hotel gests for dinner. Thursday nights are perticularly populary as they have a bonfire on the beach (no trouble with smoke as the wind is always off shore in high season) Friday & Saturday evening can be crowded and it is advised to book early on these days, Reasonable prices and good portions, book for a beach table if you want to hear yourself heard, Also does boat trips/ sport fishing, loverly sunsets if you get thier before 6pm.
