Our Story

​​The Captain's Rib Shack is a family restaurant that specializes in delicious, Caribbean BBQ meals with the most humble beginnings. It all started with one light bulb and a grill. Since then, husband and wife duo: Dino and Brenda have transformed The Captain’s Rib Shack into one of St. Maarten's most popular spots for BBQ and all local cuisine.


What Our Customers Are Saying About Us

I liked it so much, I recommended to my parents and they loved it. Best chicken and ribs!! The coleslaw and scalloped potatoes were great as well. Tried the stuffed crab too and yummy!

Tonia Beurlin

Food, drinks, music - 10/10 would recommend! Ms. Brenda made it her business that we had an amazing time at the Captain’s Rib Shack! We can’t wait to visit again.

Artesia Price

Good food, friendly folks. Ask for Brenda! This place has grown in the last few years, the quality of the food and service have not been compromised. If you were thinking about visiting, don't hesitate.

James Kanel

Have eaten here twice now since being here for about a week. The Asian pork is really flavorful and the ribs are consistently good. Our server, Brenda, is a gem. She really served us with care and also gave her personal recommendations on things to do on the island. Would recommend.

Dale James

Incredible. The goat curry was enjoyed by my husband and friends, and I had the jerk wings. We are tourists and were treated so kindly just like the locals around us! They were really attentive and seemed to really care if we enjoyed the food, which we DID! We will be visiting again during our stay!!

Olivia Lopez

Honestly worth the hype. We cleaned the plates with room for a few beers to enjoy the vibe. Definitely coming back when we visit sxm again.
