We have always had great meals in the BVI, Now this is in harbors, marinas, beach bars, quality restaurants, and open air beach shacks.

Charlies: Very nice, casual class, excellent everything, white table clothes, full on table settings, happy and friendly service. Plus open air views. At the moorings marina, road town, Outstanding. Walk the docks after dinner , a feel good BVI evening .

Le Club at the Bight on Norman Island ( not sure if it is back up and operating ).

Top o the Baths: Did not have lunch here, but did have a pain killer or two, went swimming in their pool and the view of all of the islands of the Sir Francis Drake Channel is amazing.

Leverick Bay: Another outstanding causal class dinner, with excellent meals, ambiance, and service.
Upstairs at Leverick Bay. Overlooking the beach and the boats. Another fave. Located in Virgin Gorda Sound.

Vixen Point, THE SAND BOX, on sandy beach on Prickly Pear in Virgin Gorda Sound. We stopped by early, from the boat, and ordered our Lobsters.....ahead of time. Went ashore at our res time, and ate out on the beach, toes in the sand , under the stars. Huge delicious lobsters. Excellent.

Anagada Reef Hotel......reservations early, order your Anegada Lobster.....Erica raves that these are the best lobster that she has every eaten. Anywhere in the world. Also, we sat outside under the stars on the beach.

Also faves on Anegada, the Lobster Trap and the Wonky Dog

Myetts at Cane Garden Bay. Here we just sit up at the bar, but there are plenty of tables. Food and drinks are super. Ambiance is easy beach kick back. Cane Garden Bay, Tortola is beautiful.

There are several others, but I am not sure that they have re opened . There are many many, inland shore based restaurants that are very popular, but we have not been to them, since we are sailing island to island and do not venture inland to eat.

But we hear good things about many, many inland restaurants . Others are helping out with those.

Oh, yes, we also ate several meals at the PUB, in road harbor , next to the Conch Charters marina.
Open air, great and friendly service, good food, and pleasant bar. Liked to eat out on the lanai overlooking the boats and the harbor. Very pleasant.

Looking for a recommendation for a good bar restaurant near Conch or Virgin Motor Charter. We arrive in the afternoon on May 8th and will be sleeping aboard that night. We have 23 people in our group. Any recommendations are appreciated.

Is Sharkys' gone for good? On previous charters we had a great experience there and would love to go back, but I can't find any information on them after Irma.

We have also been to The Pub on several occasions, it looks like they have moved to Village Cay. Is there new place better than the old one?

Is Pussers Road Twon Pub our best option?

With the hurricane, not sure what is open....

the last trip we ate mostly at the Pub....which is next to Conch Charters docks. Very BVI casual, good food, and service with lanai eating over looking the boats and the entry into to marina.

Saw some photos and it looks like they improved the place after Irma, and yet still is easy going and many charter sailors there.....awaiting leaving to sail the BVI , or having just returned.

You might try their web site, and check out any updates.

We did not feel like taking a taxi to our most fave restaurant on tortola....most would not know it unless charting with the moorings or sunsail.

Charlies at the Moorings Marina...very end of the docks, next to the moorings offices and briefing room....upscale, with white table cloths, proper settings, super excellent and quality meals, wonderful servers, and was our first nights dinner after arriving at the moorings .

The Pub however should be able to set you up, but it might be a good idea to talk with them, so that they will be prepared for a large group.....we just have the two of us now so live is easier .

You selected a great time of year....great sailing winds...and sunshine......

Also like your idea of pussers rum company in Road Town....the party light could be illuminated and have a Pain Killer or two for us.

From what we are seeing, things are looking up for the bare boat sailing charterers in the BVI...

Even tho some places have not re opneed or have limited hours, or moved the bar a few yards, dont see that slowing your group down. the snorkeling should be excellent, and one of our faves, Marina Cay is back in limited service.

If you get a chance, after returning, we would love to hear about your BVI sailing vacation and updates on the beach bars and restaurants and dockage and where to get water and ice.


Good on ya, your group sounds like they are the fun bunch. Outstanding.

sailonly7,

Thanks for the info, I'll provide an update when we return. We are really looking forward to the trip!

If anyone knows anything about Sharky's, I'd really appreciate hearing.

Ahrggh Ohio Pirates....

I looked up their website and it says they open at 12:00...Also looked up the list of post irma restauants that are open and Sharkeys was not listed.

When we were there back in may of 2017, Sharkeys was closed and that was why we ate at the PUB.

I would think your charter company would be able to let you know the up to date scoops, since it is really hard to sort out all of the available information and what is accurate.

If it is a mainland rep, they should be able to call the base and then report back to you.

Oherwise, my fine pirate friends...

Port and starboard poop deck, roll our the cannons, and prepare to splice the main brace !

Sharky's is gone.

The Pub is now in the heart of Road Town, not near Conch.

Pusser's is always my last recommendation, but for a group of 23, it's probably your best options.

Jason,

Thank you so very much.

You are right on, I should have done more research and been more thorough.

Perhaps the Ft. Burt hotel will actually open their bar / restaurant. We really liked arriving a couple days early, to de-lax after the travel from LAX , and to get provisions, check out the boat, swim in the pool at the hotel, have some meals and pain killers at the Pub next to Conch.

Tis what it is , and who knows what will be open near by in may of 2019 .

We can go with the flow and make it work.....we can taxi in to road harbor in very short order.

Thanks again

Denny and Erica
