I am born and raised Virgin Gordian and I absolutely can't get enough off this spot! They do awesome burgers and conch fritters! If you're looking for a sweet sunset spot while dining then this is the place for you!

Not only is the food great, but the view is insane. They have live music some days. They even have a mini-golf course out front. Great drinks. Good place for kids too!

We've enjoyed sunset dinners at The Mine Shaft in years past with music, a good atmosphere and decent food. Now we are back just with the update the Mine Shaft is closed for renovations. No idea how long.

Stopped in on a late Sunday afternoon for sunset drinks. Flyer in town advertised music. No music. Bunch of taxi drivers sitting at the bar ogling our wives and making obnoxious comments. Asked the bartender about the music. She had no clue and spoke very...More

I am a sunset fan and have to go to the Mine Shaft for sunset when I visit VG. Sitting high on a hill, you have an unobstructed view. As the sun is setting, the local chickens fly into the tree next to the deck...More
