This location features a perfect view of the harbor, with gentle breezes and the passing of boats as you enjoy your meal. The food was pretty good, but the service slow and inattentive. I'm a fan of "island time", but this was more like "sleepy...More

Expensive and awfull sandwiches! We ordered the chicken sandwich with truffle fries as a side. Both did not taste for us. The service was unfriendly and very slow.

The food is nothing very special but the setting is to die for. I'd eat there any day of the week! Over the water from Nelson's Dockyard, you are taken by a little boat. Visitors can use the lovely little pool and enjoy the view...More

The grilled lobster was amazing. The view incredible. We ate there 2 evenings and for 1 breakfast. The restaurant provides a discount for breakfast for those staying at Admiral's Inn & Gunpowder Suites.

We went there 3 times in 2 weeks and loved the ambiance. Food is not bad. Prices are high. Nelson's dock should be seen if you are visiting south of the island - English harbour area.

Eating places at English Harbour tend to be crowded, noisy, bustling places, Even in high season, Pillars at night is a relief from all that - on a spacious terrace, you're surrounded by spotlit Nelsonian structures and the sound is mostly the chirping of insects...More

Good Afternoon, I do apologize for the late reply. We do have a ramp to access the Admirals Inn Hotel and the Pillars Restaurant, however, there is a step or 2 to access the washrooms. Best Wishes & Happy New Year !
