Great staff, food authentic and location perfect- just note that is located in Sandy ground which is a "working" harbor not really a beach resort- go for lunch on Sunday

I don’t know how we have missed this place on our many trips to Anguilla. We had the whole fish lunch and it was fresh and great tasting. The sides were also very good. This will be one of our don’t miss places on future...visits. We ended up getting a to go meal our last day and ate it at SXM airport. Met Johnno as well. Great guyMore

I love the live music at this place. Food is great and the view is incredible. This is such a nice place to relax with some drinks if you are in the mood to be outside.

A great place to be on a Sunday afternoon and listen to great live music. The harbour is filled with boats as people come ashore on Sunday afternoons to listen to the live Jazz band. Expect to get your drinks from the bar. The atmosphere...is electric; people dancing and swinging.More

We went to his location on Prickly Pear and had a fabulous meal after we snorkeled. The ribs were fabulous and some of the best rice and peas we had all week! Nice cold beer, clean restrooms, and friendly people!

We actually only had a drink there when waiting for the boat to Sandy Island. The working there was very friendly and called the Island for us.

I came in from St. Maarten and this place was recommended. It's right on the beach in Sandy Ground, a peaceful bay with calm water and some boats docked off the shore. Perfect setting. I had the grilled ribs with rice and peas and salad....A Ting drink to top it off. Super fresh food and great service. After I ate I just jumped in the water. Everyone is chill here. Highly recommend this place. A must if you go to Anguilla.More

A great place to sit on a Sunday afternoon and listen to great live music. We have been coming for several years and the service has always been terrible so expect to get up to get your own drinks. The food is uninspired and slow...to come out. A little overpriced for what you get. The atmosphere is great and it's right on the beach with lots of parking.More

The harbor is filled with boats as people come ashore to the beach front bars. Sandy Ground has a number of resturants and bars but one of the most fun on Sunday afternoon is Johnno's. Terrific live band with an interesting mix of local people...and tourist dancing to the Reggie beat on the crowded floor. Good drinks to fuel the dancing and delicious ribs if you get hungry. If you want an authentic taste of what Anguilla has to offer for fun and entertainment, this is the place! Mixed group of people including families, singles, couples...and people who just like music and love to dance.More

If you're looking for a good time on a Sunday, this is the place to be. Music all day long, right on the beach. Drinks are strong, food is good, music is just what you need.

I was taught that if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all...... but the service here was atrocious. The wait for the food was extremely long. I ordered a 2nd item and after waiting for nearly 45mins (I'm a very patient person)...I got up, paid, and walked out. My order was never brought, I was never updated on why it was taking so long, and when *I* went to the bar to pay and leave, they didn't even say a word. They had ignored me the entire time after placing my 2nd order. They knew I was pissed and they obviously blew me off on purpose by not having my food prepared. I left ZERO tip and will never go back. My mother raved about this place from a couple years before, but even she said that visit was terrible. Their prices are also not fair at all.More
