Every visit to the island we stop by for Coconut shrimp, may be the best we have ever eaten. Don't forget to have car park stamped for free parking. It is worth waiting for a waterside table. If they try to hurry you just tell them you are not in a hurry, this is a busy place for locals also.

We always visit Chesterfields when in St. Maarten. The atmosphere is great and the Mixed Seafood Wrap is to die for. All the food we have had here has been delicious and the service is always attentive and very pleasant. Worth the trip to downtown Phillipsburg.

When we are ready for a great steak, Chesterfield's is the place to go. Outdoor dining, great view of Great Bay. Comfortable atmosphere, very good food. Great portions for the price. A must visit for dinner when on the island.

We were looking for a spot that specialized in seafood. This place has the most amazing Hurricane Shrimp on the island. Very spicy, and the broth was zesty, plenty of flavor. The portion was big so you can almost have this for a main course.

As a regular to the island, we have our favorites but this is our must go to each trip. Great food. Great service. And, great location. Try the snapper when they have it. It is the entire fish and prepared to perfection. Very reasonable prices.

Was invited to a birthday dinner with some friends. Waterfront view was nice,friendly ambiance. Food was good,not to pricey, affordable. Was displeased with the constant peas and carrots on each plate,maybe add a different side dish.

We had our staff meeting/lunch there. It was a pleasant and fulfilling experience. The service was excellent, the food was good. We had a very friendly and patient waiter. A must visit if you are alone. with a partner or in a group. They also have an excellent bar and a professional bartender. Big thumbs up for Chesterfield;s.
