Being a retired fireman, this was a must stop place. Food there just like you'd get in the fire station kitchen.

We were so disappointed to find one of our favorite beach hangouts is no longer open. I guess we will need to find another favorite spot.

A boardwalk cafe with great views, well shaded to keep you cool during your meal. The service was excellent but the food, we had lunch, only average.

All my friends on the fire dept at home told me of their visits to the Firehouse Bar and Grill on the boardwalk in Simpson's bay, St. Maarten so I brought a duty shirt to hang on the wall... Too late it seems as the restaurant is no longer in business. :(

Firehouse was a good place right on the beach to get a drink. However, if you are getting food, the service can be slow but very friendly.

Food was very good and a reasonable price. We sat out front because the view is fantastic. If you want to people watch, this is a perfect place. Right across from a jet ski rental place that will work with you on price.

We had lunch and a couple of cold beers here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was great and the view of the boardwalk and beach was fantastic.
