It was under staffed at the bar, bus loads come in, and they are overwhelmed. Beer prices are a little high.

Very laid back atmosphere and good food. If you love planes this is so cool!! They have the flight schedule posted on TV screens so you know exactly when and what will be landing near you. :)

Had a nice lunch. Good food. Reasonable for that venue. Then spent afternoon on beach swimming and watching planes land. Got great video but couldn't add to review. Went when no cruise ships in port so not crowded with lots of tourists.

If nothing else, go here for the Mud Slides, and being run over by really big Jets. If you want to join in the fun and be sand-blasted by the jet engine wash, be my guest, but watching all those lovely people do that, well...More

Great view of the planes landing @ SXM. Been there for lunch several times; good burgers and chicken sandwiches. Get to see the idiots hang onto the fence at the end of the runway so they can get hit by the jet exhaust from planes...More

I have never had such an experience as watching airplanes fly right over your head! They are so close! It's a sight to see! We didn't eat the food or have any drinks, but you must go here to see the planes.

Always a great spot for a drink or meal and enjoy the view. Drinks are a bit high priced but you can't beat the view of the beach and the planes coming in. It is an experience that you should not miss.

Check airline schedules for Air France, KLM and others that fly 747's and other jumbo jetliners into Princess Juliana Airport on Sint Maarten, Netherland Antilles, to experience a closeup encounter with these planes landing less than 300 ft. over your head when you are at...More

No not at all its a fast food restaurant but really good food
We were there several years ago, and they did not accept credit cards. Is that still the case? Thank you!

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?
