“Awesome views and drinks...Pork.... NOT so much”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

We stopped by w/our group of 6 people and the drinks were great, not half as good as the views however...but then we were served our BBQ chicken and pork....for the 4 people who ordered it was almost completely inedible, it was VERY over cooked and you couldn't even put a fork into it...the chicken however was great, as was the coleslaw and rice & beans...

So if you're looking for a great view with some good drinks this is your place...the food however...it's cooked on a grill like most houses on the island have and clearly these pigs were either mal-nutrioned or just WAY over cooked.

My husband had to come back and eat lunch as he wasn't able to even eat 1 bite of his pork...

They only had 1 guy cooking on the grill and then 1 bartender and she was VERY frazzled and I asked for BBQ sauce and was told it would be a while, 20 minutes later there still no BBQ sauce....

And for 6 people for lunch with 1 drink a piece it was $139, not worth what you paid vs. what you got....

“Best restaurant and spot in VG”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

Fantastic BBQ with breathtaking views high up on the island. Try the ribs with plantains, the conch or the bbq chicken , you'll be licking your fingers before you know it while you take in the amazon views of Leverick Bay.

“Best food on the island!”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Relatively new, but already great in every way. This casual barbeque joint -- actually, an open air bar and stools overlooking the North Sound, has a short menu, but everything on it is excellent: ribs, fried or grilled pork, bbq chicken, birger (regular or veggie) and conch chowder. The potato salad and cole slaw are also great. DO NOT MISS!

“Go For The View, Stay For The 'Que”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

This place is high on the new road above North Sound on Virgin Gorda.
Get the BBQ RIBS, but the cheeseburgers also looked good. They have cold beer, friendly service, and good, island music. Can be breezy, so take a jacket.
Hog Heaven has the best view of any barbeque joint on earth.
So, go for the view, but stay for the 'que.
