We stopped here while we were doing a little shopping downtown. When parking downtown all of the parking spots are number and you put money in the meter to pay. As I got out of my car and was looking for the number, one of the waiters came out and asked me if I saw any numbers in that spot.... More

This little gem is near the cruise port. We stopped here prior to getting back on board the RCCL Southern Caribbean Cruise.

After the long walk from the ship, we stopped here for a drink. Nice place and great view of the ship and the port.

We saw this place from the cab on our way to the hotel from the airport. Looked like this place had a story and it was right next to the water. We walked in and saw dollar bills and patches stapled to every surface of the bar. Of course we had to make our mark and signed a $1 and... More

We stopped at The Paddock to take a breaking from the heat and walking. It was just what we needed. The beer was cold and refreshing. The breeze and view were stunning. We sat for a long while just reviving our tired bodies. It was a perfect break!

Nice eatery on the waterfront...tropical cocktails and pretty good food, spicy peanut saté and tasty burgers highlight the offerings, proper Dutch fries w/mayonnaise. Try a Bols Curacao or Jagërmeister cocktail.

The food at this location was nothing special. Prices seemed a little high for what you received. The waiter did not smile and seemed to not be very happy. Did not come by table to check on drink refills. Nice location on water. Inside bar was unusual with currency's of many foreign countries stapled to the roof and walls. We... More

We loved the ribs on All U Can Eat night. Casual outdoor dining. A good place to chill with a drink or two.

Stopped for lunch. Didn't like the overall "feel/appearance' of this place. Beat on. No atmosphere. Server was doing her job. The menu was ok, nothing "special" to choose from. 2 of us ordered grouper sandwiches and the fish was like 1/8" thin. Ridiculous. Tuna salad was lame just as basic as it gets. Portions were small. Felt it was a... More

The all you can eat BBQ ribs were really good for only $15.99. We dined outside on the dock with a good atmosphere. Staff was very friendly.
