Same area. Hope your right as if it was a run off water line that could pose problems.

Well, we all know water runs downhill and that area is prone to flooding.

I believe Lee lives up in that area. I wonder if by chance this might be his house or another property he owns and thay are adding on or converting to make it a restaurant?

Kind of what I thought too. From the picture it appears to have steps leading down from a building above.

He owns that property. In my opinion, it’s crazy that he decided to put his restaurant in such a congested area with nowhere to park.

Thank you and I agree.

If you remember, Lee willingly did away with 1-2 parking spaces to put the big fish out front at the prior location.

Years ago, back when Greenhouse was Indiana Beach and BBB was almost new, I believe there was a restaurant up those stairs if I am remembering correctly, and if it is the same building. Don’t remember the name just remember being there,

If it is the same building, I remember there being about 4 parking spaces in front. There’s always plenty of cars looking for spaces there along with all the traffic headed to SBR and to Pelican Key. We love Lee’s but this doesn’t seem like a great location. Hope it works out.

I remember many years ago, as we have been traveling to Island since the late 80s. His mother owned a house up there right off the road, and I do remember that, because he used to pick her up and bring her to the hollywood casino to play, and then take her home. I do believe he does own that property. She was old then so she is surely gone, but she did live in a house where he is looking to put lees. I do believe he was living with her back then... It was so sweet seeing him walking her in to the casino, getting her seated and waiting for her to have some fun... Long time ago, but still remember. Just not sure if it was hollywood or another casino very close by, I used to play in different places, so not so sure... I so know it was local. Yes Lees mom had a small house in that location

Perhaps he is looking for a location where he will not have a lease and cannot be kicked out arbitrarily?

Yup. There was a very small house, very caribbean, and I actually saw him bringing her home when passing so I know he owns land there. Could be.

I know that the proprietor at Rusty Rocket owns that piece of land he is on. I inquired as I was surprised by how much business seems to have declined between June and November for them...never anyone there when we passed by. They are doing ok as they don't have to pay a lease. wink

Rusty Rocket is at the curve heading towards the airport parking lot. Where the Anguilla ferry USED to be.

Great flavored burgers, but the tables and atmosphere of being on the road behind the bolders left much to be desired. As did the fact he wouldn't serve them with lettuce, tomato, and onion....as it isn't the way HE eats them..,.lol

((sorry for the thread stray))

I don't recall ever having heard of it before. Bucket, Rocket, either one! grin In reference to the topic of rent in general, yes, it does save money if you don't have to pay rent. There have been a couple of different places at that location, but I don't think that overall, that is a great location like you said. Like a certain other place in Simpson Bay where you basically sit in the middle of the road and smell the gas, but lots of folks love it!!! crazy

Rusty Rocket is owned by the woman who writes the Island Girl blog (that may not be the exact name) and her husband.

Scubaman, years ago when that restaurant was le Bec Fin clients used to park there as there were no signs, but after they closed and for several years now it has clearly been marked as Buccaneer parking. Also more Buccaneer parking down below right by the restaurant. Buccaneer is a busy spot and they need all the parking they can get!
