We popped in here for a drink and as some reviews stated the food was good, we went for lunch. We ordered the chicken and rice and hamburger. I asked if the chicken was a chicken breast, and if it was I wouldn't have liked to have seen the chicken. It was awful. When I complained and asked for it... More

Stopped just for a drink - bought the half gallon run punch for US$25. Surfside supplied a big bucket of ice and a cherry in each glass (lovely touch). We had four glassfulls and we gave a glass to one of the vendors - and still took well over half the rum punch home with us. It is really potent... More

We went for dinner Monday evening. Great calypso band and close to the water. Unfortunately servers were underwhelmed and inattentive. We ordered the catch of the day with potatoes and veggies- fish was overcooked, veggies were charred, everything was smothered in weird sauces. Not worth the price.

Have spent time here at lunchtime, afternoons and evenings. Beautiful venue on the beach. Sports bar, formal seating area and informal area all on the beach. Behind the post office in Holetown. Very relaxed. Good selection of tasty food. Well cooked and good size portions. Great rum punch - quite strong! Sunday and Monday evening had great live music. Had... More

Great laid back bar - but a bit spoilt by all the TVs for the sport. Still there are plenty of corners to escape the sport, including out on the seafront.

Couldn't get a table for Sunday night when the steel band was on so we went back Monday night. We were recommended to try it out by a local. We weren't disappointed with the food. My boyfriend had the calamari to start which was excellent. We both had the tuna and vegetables for main. My boyfriend had his with mash... More

This bar sits right on the beach, where you can stop for a drink or a meal and watch the world go by. Feet in the sand blue sea golden sand what more could you ask for.

On the plus side it's a bar on a beach. It has a collection of big satellite dishes bringing every type of sport you would want to watch. And it's a great place for chilling out over a few beers and the best Bajan fishcakes on the island. The downside of Surfside and in many places on the island we... More

The bar is the perfect location to go straight from the beach for a few drinks to watch the sunset. The service isn't the quickest or friendliest compared to many of the other bars i visited, but the location makes up for it......oh and the chocolate rum cocktails!
