Had high expectations for this cute place on a,beautiful beach. Traveling with local Anguillan couple whom, much to our disgrace and embarrassment, were ignored by staff, in particular one extremely unhappy female bartender. This is unacceptable be it the most expensive place on the planet or a shack on the beach. Her behavior and attitude was so apparently disgraceful, we... More

Adorable little spot next to CuisinArt Resort. I had the chicken meal (they were out of ribs) which was serviced with cole slaw, salad and rice. It was great. Drinks were pretty good too, but we loved the atmosphere...Garvey set up such a perfect spot for relaxing, eating good food in a gorgeous location and having some fun at the... More

This is a great beach bar, with great people and great food. Garvey's BBQ is the best... try the rib and chicken combo! The service is wonderful, they really take care of you and the drinks are yummy and cold. This isn't a place that you come to and order your food and expect it ready in 10 minutes. This... More

My husband and I ate here based on the great reviews it had been given. We shared the bar b q plate, which was enough for 2 people, but not anything special. Drinks were good and the beach out front was beautiful. So my recommendation would be to eat somewhere else and then come to this place for drinks and... More

This was a fun hangout for our family with 4 children. The menu is small...grilled ribs, chicken, fish and lobster but the food is very tasty. We spent two days at this beach shack enjoying the food, music, sights and water but if my kids had it their way we would have gone there every day of our vacation. Perfect... More

My wife and I spent the day and Rendezvous to take in the lovely view and enjoy the sun, beach and water. The best part of the day was sitting on the beach at Garvey's SunShine Shack. The setting is killer nice and Garvey and his team work super hard to make sure you are enjoying the day. The place... More

Not often do you get to enjoy great live music with your toes in the sand. Even though the drink options were limited I gave it a 5 for being just what it is A Perfect Beach Bar/Shack

Love Garvey. Food great. Have had the ribs and chicken a couple of times. Friend had the grilled lobster and said it was excellent. I have bad timing to get a lobster there.

One of my favorite spots on Anguilla. Garvey is the owner and is super friendly and interesting. He cooks up fresh fish (and Lobster) right on one of the most beautiful beaches in Anguilla. And he plays some great Caribbean music. The experience is exactly what makes Anguilla so great. The snorkeling n front of the shack is not that... More
