Lovely little restaurant right on the water. Delicious coffee!! We all loved the Johnnie Cakes and highly recommend them. A perfect place for a vacation breakfast!

This beach side bar offers food, and drinks while you lounge in their beach chairs under an umbrella! Beautiful white beach. They also rent snorkel gear!

We love going to Mr Busbys, especially for breakfast to have their Johnny cakes. They have a pretty nice happy hour as well. Right on the beach with awesome views. Grey is an outstanding server, we look forward to seeing him on every visit.

Great value. Just the thing for travelers on a budget, as a pound of fries will fill you, if you are up for that kind of thing! Good burgers and sandwich option. Small $1 Happy Hour beers are a bargain.

I'd give this 3.5 if I could, mostly because the service was pretty slow, but very nice, so I rounded up to 4. The food was good, but it wasn't great. I wasn't wowed by anything. But, it's right on the beach, and that's worth something, and the prices were reasonable. If you're at Dawn Beach, you don't have a... More

Whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner, Mr. Busby's (aka Daniel's by the Sea at night) is always good. It's so nice to be able to go in the morning for breakfast and let your toes wiggle in the sand while sipping on a Bloody Mary waiting for your food. Try their pizza for lunch and definitely pick out a large... More

We had heard a lot about this place so we searched it out for lunch. They are setting, overlooking a nice little beach with great ocean views. We had the Jerk chicken wrap, fish sandwich, and Guava berry colada's. All were excellent. The ride in and out of this out of the way location is pretty scenic also.

We stayed in Dawn Beach Estates and spent a few days of our trip hanging out at Mr. Busby's Beach Bar. For $12 you can rent two lounge chairs and an umbrella. (Orient Bay was $25 for the same thing.) You also get a server who comes to you for drink and food orders. We had Desmond, who was so... More

Busby's Chicken Rotisserie is a little blue shack, in the parking lot of Mr Busby's/Daniel's. It's run by a sweet lady who has a tiny menu of Rotisserie chicken, rice, potato salad and chicken sandwich. It is the yummiest homemade food and is such a good value! I think it was maybe $7 for a meal! She has some picnic... More

We were on a family vacation at nearby Westin Dawn Beach and we came here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. We had some great fresh fish and a kid friendly menu as well. Our waiter was super friendly and great with the kids.
