“UNCLE ERNIE"S IS NO MORE”
Review of Uncle Ernie's

Uncle Ernie's
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Caribbean, Seafood, Grill
Description: Uncle Ernie's Shoal Bay Beach Bar is one of the best known eateries in Anguilla. 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'. It remains a family affair owned now by his daughters Eileen and Icilma and his nephew Franklin. Its an unpretentious bar, relaxed and informal and boasts bargain prices that ensure value for money without compromising on quality.

Finally closed down. A major disappointment to the many fans who frequented this great beachfront establishment.

Sustained damages from the hurricane so it’s now just a BBQ. With that being said they are super nice and friendly. Especially the BBQ chicken and the Fish Bites are extra tasty. Price is amazing too compared to their neighbours the quality of food is a great value.

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!

My wife and I spent many enjoyable afternoons soaking up the Anguillan sun and enjoying the ribs or conch at this great place. Good food at a good price.

I ordered a passion fruit colada with alcohol and the fish bits and chips. The food was a lot enough for two people to share. The drink I had to ask for more run as there was barely in there for the extra $2 but the server was awesome about it. This is the second time I have eaten there and I would definitely recommend it. They brought my food to me on the beach as it was not ready at the restaurant, that was really nice.
