It's a must see experience if you're visiting Antigua. Breathtaking. A really good night out to be had. Not for kids though.

Shirley Heights is - in a word - surreal. From the views, to the drinks, to the Steel Drum Orchestra...Shirley Heights was beyond our already high expectations. Be ready for an amazing time with great memories!

View was out of this world and great for pictures. Food was good. Great flavor. Quiet and peaceful. Couple of vendors, but not pushy.

Crowded, noisy, mediocre food, LOUD. Seems like a tourist trap that is highly over-rated. For what it is, it's also expensive - for food and for getting there.

I would recommend a visit on Thu during busy season or Sun in the shoulder and summer season. It is the days when there is steel drum music and outside bar and BBQ food. Arrive at 5:00 PM to combine the experience with sun set....More

This is a must do on a Sunday evening when in Antigua. Friendly and fun for all the family. Rum punch or Dark and Stormies and great BBQ food. Early evening it’s the steel band then reggae until late.

Cant be absolutely sure about acceptance of credit cards at Shirley Heights. It is crowded and a long line up for food. More practical to just pay with cash. $10 entrance charge is cash only. The steel band is... More

The three previous posters said it. Any time is good for an amazing view of the harbour and the sunsets are unforgetable.

We are a small but proud restaurant and bar located at the historical 'Lookout', part of the Shirley Heights military complex. The Lookout affords a breathtaking view over English and Falmouth Harbours. The view from Shirley Heights Lookout is a perfect setting to watch a sunset. Behind the catchment on the highest point, 490ft (150m) above sea level, was the Signal Station from which a system of flags was used by day and guns by night to convey messages to St. John's by way of Great Fort George on Monk's Hill. Our opening hours are generally from 9am-6pm during which lunch is offered. We extend our hours to accommodate dinner on the weekend and also to host our exciting party labeled 'Sunday Sunset Barbecue' from 4pm-10pm. Our Seasonal Thursday Afternoon Barbeque runs from November until May.
