St. Martin: Lee’s Roadside Grill

On Sunday, we woke up incredibly red and sore from our sunburns. Ken was really itchy and I was just in pain and couldn’t stand up straight, but we managed to pack our suitcases and head out for a nice lunch before going to the airport. We wanted something out of the sun and local, so decided to visit Lee’s Roadside Grill:


I wanted something light before our long flight home so I ordered the grilled fish with a side of potato salad:


The fish was a little charred and slathered in garlic and butter but wasn’t very salty. It was light but I ended up not being a huge fan because the only taste it had was a burnt flavor.

Ken ordered half a chicken and ribs with a side of fries:


It ended up being really flavorless, but they had a lot of different barbeque sauces you could slather on the ribs and chicken so we ended up eating the majority of his food.

Lee’s also served lobster by the pound – the lobsters were gigantic and held in a tub in the center of the restaurant so customers could pick their lobster:


We had a great view while we ate and didn’t have to deal with the sun at all:


We arrived at the airport slightly early but since we were moving a lot slower than usual due to our sunburns, it was okay to just sit and do nothing at the gate. I probably wouldn’t return to Lee’s Roadside Grill for lunch but they have a fully stocked bar and they also have karaoke on weeknights.

If you want to eat (or try to eat) awful meat and stinking (fresh?) fish and really disgusting French fries, this is your place. On top of that, you will be billed with a fare to high bill for the little you will be able to eat (if you are really hungry…). On top of that, you can add a terrible service ! But be sure that they will not forget to add a 15% gratuity on your bill.
Unfortunately, this kind of disgusting places are legion on St-Maarten/St-Martin.
St-Maarten/St-Martin the friendly island ? No quiet sure…
