Where did the reports come from, and did she decide not to start over or was she not awarded a location.

The scene of many late night wild parties - if true will surely be missed by many who were there.

Cheryl is not returning. She got remarried over the summer and is enjoying her retirement. The list of occupants has also been announced which confirms she is not returning.

We are happy for Cheryl but sad for us.

Does anyone know if she remains on the island?

Cheryl has confirmed to a friend of mine that she is not returning. She is happily remarried and I believe moving off island.

And I for one will miss Mussels a la Andy, Margarita Shrimp, and so many other treats on the beach. But like anything else, when one chapter ends, a new chapter begins.

Life goes on

I agree, for us Orient was forever changed when Andy passed, and many of us will always miss our time with him. Over the many years we visited, he became a good friend and we had many fun days together.

We also hoped Cheryl would return, but we understand and wish her good luck in the future.

i guess this means that you haven't been there since andys passing years ago. Au contraire!!!! Cheryl kept things just about the same after his passing.....the food was the same. The service was still great with Cheryl always working like a dog...but always a smile on her face, and always found time for all her thousands of friends. Even felt Andy's presence there....sitting in the corner, muscle shirt and all...smilling at everyone there.

Cheryl and Andy spent years building and working on their business. I don't think there is or was a harder working couple anywhere. Andy would be at the restaurant at the crack of dawn, doing all the prep work, etc, and work well into the late afternoon. Cheryl would come in, and immediately go into ''high gear'' for all the customers. Cheryl and Andy's always remined me of the old televison show CHEERS. It truly was a place that ''everyone knew your name". Half the time, you didn't even have to order...Cheryl knew what everyone's ''usual'' was. Over the years, we met a lot of our SXM family sitting right at Baywatch. It truly was a friendly, fan favorite of many. Very few of the patrons would only go there once...but make it a must do stop every trip. I guess all good things must end....and this is one of them.

I am so thrilled and happy for Cheryl finding her new love. She deserves to be happy, and if retirement was her pleasure, then we all have to agree with her decision...even though for thousands of us, walking Orient Beach, and not seeing the blue shack with all the licence plates, surely will be a sad moment, but great memories of life gone by. All the best to Cheryl...and hope Andy continues to RIP.... they both will be forever missed.

I agree with Ed B wholeheartedly! Andy was a great cook and Cheryl was a perfect hostess! Their food was fantastic and the portions were huge. It was THE best beach bar and lunch spot on Orient!

We wept when Andy passed away. We understand completely Cheryl's decision to retire and enjoy her remaining years and support her decision...even though we will miss her and her great restaurant.

We wish her nothing but "Fair winds and following seas" as our Navy colleagues would say.

Thank you Cheryl for all the wonderful memories.

Andy, RIP Leatherneck! Bravo Zulu!

It's just that Andy was a dear friend of mine from Jersey. I was at Andy's bed side and heard his dying breath say to Cheryl on the phone, that he loved her and she said nothing. Enough said. Rest in peace Andy.

And I'm sure he'd be thrilled that you're trying to start nasty rumors about his ex at this point.

Way to much said.

I'll miss them both and the spot they built together. Hopefully something with at least half as much character goes into that spot. Maybe Cheryl can visit and simply enjoy some time on the beach!

I have no idea what the truth of all of that is, but I think that this is a good place to end this one. Rest in peace, Andy. Cheryl--I truly wish you well in your new life.
