Creole Cuisine in Antigua

If you find yourself in the mood for Creole cuisine, you might have a chance to spoil yourself. Though not incredibly abundant, there are a couple of places in Antigua where you can sample this kind of food.


With choices such as the very casual setting of Lobster Shack to the neighborhood eateries where cocktails are every bit as important as the dishes they serve, there's something in store for each person in your party and any style of dining desired.

The following list allows you to peek at the limited selection of Creole restaurants you'll have the chance to check out during your stay. On each restaurant's name, click to read the full article about its hours, locale, and even nearby attractions.

Lobster Shack

Runaway Bay

Lobster Shack, part of Runaway Beach, is located near downtown St. John's; it is 0.9 miles to the south west of Dickenson Bay. Determined not to be a "stale" choice, not only does this place offer Creole cooking and their signature staple of hot dogs, but it's also known for sandwiches. Classic decor seems odd for a spot called the Lobster Shack, but set in a courtyard garden that is exactly the way you'd describe it.
