I'm confused. Is the yacht club right at the bridge or behind Jimbo's?

Coming from Belair it’s immediately before the bridge on the right. There’s very limited parking and best to get there well before the bridge openings so you can see the yachts lining up, assuming they’re back. Not to be missed, for sure. They serve great Eggs Benedict and their afternoon apps are yummy.

There's no yacht's here now. Bridge openings are quick. Il the parking lot is filled when you go by, just keep going over the bridge to park. Lots of closed businesses.

Confusion might be between the restaurant which is next to the bridge and the residence area that is gated and kind of hard to see behind Jimbos.

By the bridge is Sint Maarten Yacht Club. The residences by Jimbo's are Simpson Bay Yacht club.

I'm another who was underwhelmed by the grouper fingers. Mine weren't cold and soggy, but there was SO MUCH breading that I wondered where the fish was. Not for me.

Thank you, Scuba and Linda, as that was pretty much my experience, too. They were okay but nothing that I’d rave over and certainly not what I expected given all the rave reviews I’ve read over time. But we all know I’m not much of a foodie so I assumed I was just missing something. And we can all have different expectations.


Respectfully,

Oh great, that was high on my list of things to try next trip after all the great reviews! But how bad could it be with a frozen beverage watching the yacths come through the bridge. It's got to be better than a good day at work! smile

Have the bloody Mary's instead. Better option as they are very good at SMYC.

We just returned from a drive through Maho to Cupecoy and back. Stopped at SMYC for lunch. I had the grouper fingers and my wife had the coconut shrimp. Both were good, hot, crispy and delicious but we both agreed that the shrimp was awesome. Love the place and can't wait to go back for breakfast or dinner or both.

If you go for breakfast the eggs Benedict are very good. I had the drunken pancakes based on recomdations and regret it. Like eating a giant coconut macaroon with syrup on it. Not my idea of a pancake.

I still plan on giving it a go Carol, and probably will have to try breakfast too, just to make sure its as good as advertised. Scuba, my wife loves Bloodys, so shes going to critique those!

I like the grouper fingers but I consider them more like traditional "fish and chips". They do have a bit more breading than I prefer but they are still quite tasty. It is also a very large portion so can be an appetizer for two or a meal for one. Certainly worth the money if you like fried fish.

Sorry......don't want to be confusing. Just the "fish" part of "fish and chips". There are no fries served with them.

So we back this morning and we both had Bloody's and Eggs Benedict. Great food. Fab Bloody Mary. A nice setting for breakfast or anything for that matter.

Carol the picture is for you.

My fav breakfast. I order the loaded Bloody Mary which includes 2 or 3 jumbo cocktail shrimp. Not sure how it is described on menu but will be finding out soon enough.
