They have expanded and remodeled the restaurant and it looks awesome. Food is great with a nice view of the planes flying overhead.

The drinks and food here are very good but you have to go here once to watch the planes take off and land! Such a blast especially for flying enthusiasts Best time to watch the planes is between 2pm and 5 pm This is also a great nightclub to come back to after dinner. Check this place out!

This bar is lively and has people of all ages Good apps , we had guacamole and nachos, and has reasonable buckets of beer Its at the end of the airport runway, most of the people are more interested in getting pictures next to the fence then the big danger sign so its added entertainment.

This is a requirement for every visit. People watch the planes come and go, the sunsets, and enjoy a beer, cocktail, snack or meal.Great casual place to hang out.

The food is solid. The ambiance is outstanding. Together it's hard to not give Sunset 5 stars. Pizza is thin crust. The burger was cooked exactly as ordered.

It's always funny to be here, not only the planes but also the crowds. Great fun. Good food, chilled drinks.

We usually make a day of this. We never get tired of watching the planes come and go, the water is amazing and if you get hungry the food is decent. It has become another cash grab to rent chairs & umbrella but everyone else does it too. At least here you get an fun day and an amazing sunset!

Went to Sunset Beach Bar last Thursday (3/16/17), to watch a friends plane land. It was so crowded that I doubt I will go in the future. Way too crowded with mediocre food.

It's been about 8years since we've been to sxm and 8 years ago i would have rated the sunset bar 5 stars however today the owners have turned a great fun bar into a crowded tourist trap

Description
Fasten your seatbelts for fun in the sun! Sunset Bar & Grill is St. Maarten's most popular beach bar and it's easy to see why. We are right on a beautiful white sandy beach, but also right at the end of the runway of Princess Juliana International Airport. Where else can you enjoy an ice cold beer as a huge KLM Jumbo Jet soars right over your head?
