South Coast Bar & Grill

Breakers | (345) 947-2517

South Coast Bar & Grill

South Coast Bar & Grill is located in Breakers, a neighborhood on Grand Cayman; to the east-northeast of Bodden Town. Lovely, mild seafood and Caribbean food both describe the best dishes at this friendly eatery.

Seafood definitely rules here, but other offerings such as steak, lamb chops, and pasta are available. Thursday nights the restaurant hosts all you can eat lobster. If you don't find something on the menu that you like, let your server know, and he will likely create a custom meal just for you. The specials change on a daily basis, but the most popular seems to be the lobster fiesta.
