This little joint is... More

Prices are reasonable for the location. Shrimp creole was great. Calamari was so-so - not bad, just different batter than what I am accustomed to. Nice bar. Stop by!

We had a week in St. Maarten & managed to stop by here three times. Nice bartender remembered our drinks from our first visit. Lunch was excellent. Portions were large. Fish sandwiches & burgers were excellent. I'd stop back here anytime. Really nice folks. Nice view of the beach & ships too.

While jewelry shopping in Phillipsburg, we stopped in to see Simon and have lunch. My wife ordered the Grilled Shrimp salad and I had the seafood wrap. Drinks were cold beer. Service was great and the food very good served piping hot.

Delicious seafood wrap, burgers great right on the boardwalk in Philipsburg. Too bad it's only open for breakfast and lunch.
