The Boathouse

Serving the Simpson Bay Area for a couple of decades, The Boathouse has become an essential stop for anyone looking to experience the local Sint Maarten scene. Diners who choose this place will find themselves sipping on cold drinks and warm food while looking out over the water at the docked cruise boats.


The Boathouse has an eclectic menu, with offerings from seemingly every culture around the world. Most guests, however, are happy to settle with a burger and fries. The staff recommends the Hurricane Shrimp, which also has to be the restaurant's top selling menu item. Baked stuffed grouper, salmon, lobster, baked mussels, whole fresh red snapper, pepper strip steak, and seafood fettuccine are also guest favorites. In addition to this, the restaurant offers a full Vegan menu.

The Boathouse is a popular bar and grill that happens to specialize in Caribbean cuisine. Anticipate and dress for a dining experience that is very casual. This location is open for both dinner and lunch, so make time to try it.


As you might imagine from the restaurant's name, they offer a nautically themed setting on the waterfront. The vibe is casual and relaxed.


The Boathouse is situated in the southeastern outskirts of Simpson Bay, near Marigot.

This part of the island of St. Martin and Sint Maarten has various attractions, proud to call itself part of a colorful area that's an attraction all its own. The nearest places of interest from their location include Sunset Theatre and Megaplex 7, both of which are within a quick trip of The Boathouse.

There are at least a few convenient outdoor activities to fill those sunny days if you're waiting for sunset. Golfers up for an outdoor challenge can prove themselves worthy at this restaurant's closest located golf facility, Mullet Bay Golf Course. And what makes a breezy round of golf even better? A nap afterwards at Kim Sha Beach, which is the nearest beach and is only a short distance away. And still, those two attractions aren't the only options that exist for beaches, golf courses, and outdoor sports within the region.
