Uncle Ernie’s is closed but Leoni has set up a grill out front with one table. She puts up a chalkboard with daily menus and cooks your meal fresh on the bbq. Great whole grilled hind fish. Don’t pass her by!

It is proudly situated at the end of the main road to Shoal Bay East Beach; One of the most beautiful stretches of sand in the Caribbean and the most popular in Anguilla. The bar was opened in 1984 by the late Ernest Benjamin Harrigan affectionately known to most everyone on the island as 'Uncle Ernie'.
