Had to wait 20 minutes for a table at Harlequin. Stopped here for a quick drink. Great prices and friendly server. I could have easily just sat there a few hours to people watch.

We’ve been coming for years and it feels like we’re home when we see Frank and Wayne. My husband and Wayne start debating football as soon as we’re through the door. Great rum punch and cocktails. All served with a smile.

Barbados dollars we paid in. Prices are little cheaper than other bars. They have a cocktail special 2 for $12 which is good value. Nice bad to sit & watch the world go by.
