Skip Jack's

Simpson Bay | (721) 544-2313

Skip Jack's can be found toward the southeastern outskirts of Simpson Bay. Lovely, mild seafood and Creole food both describe the best dishes at this laid-back restaurant atmosphere.

As you might expect, Skip Jack's boasts a maritime theme. Swordfish, a collection of national flags, and other boating equipment decorate the wall, and the architecture reflects that of a fishing boat. The vibe is cool and relaxed, making it a great spot for a family meal or to kick back with a beer.

Mark's Place

Saunders | (721) 543-2625

Positioned in Saunders, close to Marigot, Mark's Place is a smart choice for guests who are going to explore this neighborhood. From the restaurant, Philipsburg is a little more than a mile (approximately two kilometers) to the southeast. Vacationers who want barbecue will wholly enjoy stopping here during a visit to Saunders.

Mark's Place features a small, but cozy dining room with Dutch decor offset by the colorful murals on the wall.

Simpson Bay | (721) 580-7351

Butter Fish Restaurant, a part of Simpson Bay Fish Market, is found in outside the center of Simpson Bay. Fabulously fresh fish and Creole style eats make for an exciting meal at this completely casual restaurant.

Butter Fish Restaurant prepares all different kinds of dishes, though their focus is without doubt fresh seafood. Several non-seafood entrees are available as well, especially at breakfast time, and you will have no problem ordering food like pulled pork and grilled ribs.
