Your favorite Aunt and Uncle are cooking up either steaks,chicken or ribs depending on the 3 nights available. The plates are made up as soon as you site down with potato salad, BBQ bean. , bake potatoes and a salad. All... More

If you are on Saba you have to visit Swinging Doors at least once. 3 times a week a Bbq style dinner is served. Choise: chicken, ribs or combo served with salad , Rice and some beans. Sunday steaks only. The ribs were very good! Go!

The guy that runs the bbq grill is a true master. The night for ribs and chicken is really really good. I used to eat here every week when I went to medical school here and it never failed to disappoint.

Eddie the owner is a very friendly guy that makes you feel right at home. He also barbecues a delicious steak if you are fortunate enough to be there for his steak night! The bar is a very cute little place with a wonderful fun and relaxed vibe. Would definitely go back.

Eddie is the owner and runs the bar and the smoker. Patricia his wife is onhand in the dining room. We went 2 times during our week vacation for BBQ night. Ribs, chicken or a mixed plate. You need to order your food in advance. It is all smoked on premise in Eddies killer smoker. Lots of homemade side dishes... More

No choice on menu but thats known beforehand. On steak nite its just ribeye steak with baked potato and some mundane salad. The steaks were decent size but in terms of taste were not terrible, not exceptional. Just average. The steaks for all of us were cooked as ordered in terms of doneness. But there was no creativity to the... More

The restaurant only serves food three nights a week. Chicken/Ribs on Tues and Fri; Steaks on Sun. The owners and their family (who help in getting the meals together) make you feel right at home. The portions are very large and it is good comfort bbq food. The hospitality, the generous portions, the atmosphere... definitely try to get there.

We went on Sunday which is "Steak night". Very simple and very good. You tell them how you want it cook and they cook it perfectly with yummy sides. Tuesday was bbq night. Your choice of all ribs or all chicken or combo. Again, very simple and very delicious. Very nice husband and wife team. Bartender and server were exceptional.

Great grilled chicken or ribs (2 nights a week) with a steak night (on a different night) meaning they are only open 3 nights a week (at least when I was there) with a very limited bar. Reservations are highly recommended (maybe even required)
