Over priced for a mid range food quality. Although waiter was kind the dishes were dramatically expensive.

We stopped in here on a hot nice day and enjoyed some drinks and a meal. Service was good, drinks were decent, we wrote on the wall and generally had a great time. I found the prawns to be a rip off compare to the rest of the meal. They tasted good, but $80EC for 5-6 prawns in some sauce with some rice was bad value compared to other foods they offer. Two people ordered this with intentions to split it, hilarity ensued.

Parking in this small area of town was the most difficult...not just shimmying between the cars with narrow pathways but then trying to park. Then you get blocked in and play a live version of the game Traffic Jam with the cars and taxis.

With 7+ Trip Advisor awards in the hallway, BB's place has a definitive following with the tourists. The view looks out over clear waters with Grand Anse in the distance. There are sea urchins in the waters below the dining area. With lots of tourist grafitti on the pillars, walls, and ceiling with travel remarks, the atmosphere is truly Caribbean. There weren't any cruise ships in during our visit. Choice seating by the water with quick service!

Other than the view, we liked the iced tea. It's unique and flavorful. The BB crabback signature dish was okay for us. It tasted like crabmeat with cheese. We couldn't identify the special spices. Other than a few salads, lunch items are limited to daily specials; there were two. We had those. They were okay. No wow moments for us here. However, the dinner items are varied.

Unfortunately, their credit card machine wasn't working and we barely had enough cash to pay and leave a small tip. We regretted not having more cash, but we did not know that the area was experiencing credit card machine issues for many businesses in St. George's. Lesson learned - take more cash when out and about.

Take a walk around the corner in the harbour, after the art gallery and past the public offices, finish at BBs. The food is outstanding, the service is typical Grenadian super-friendly, the bill reasonable plus... you can gaze at the fish, the boats, and all the graffiti visitors are encouraged to add to the ceiling! The kids will love it - they keep pens behind the bar. I had fish, the Boss chicken. All perfect, generous and filling. Nothing to dislike. The hot sauce, BTW, was HOT. I was warned. Kind of pub food, Grenada-style.

Joshua L - I love your comment. I'm on a campaign here in England to get rid of those diabolical service charges. Simply unethical. However, on THIS occasion, for Grenada, I notice the scam is reasonably widespread. I've chosen, reluctantly, not to give my automatic one-star to restaurants who do this. BB's Crabback take note! Joshua L is not alone. The 'service charge' is not acceptable to many UK visitors and it will damage your business in the long run. Better to increase prices a little if you must. It is more honest and transparent. Your restaurant is so excellent, you don't need to do this. Show the world!
