Smokey's Review

This quintessential Anguillian beach barbecue, part of the Gumbs family mini-empire of authentic and delicious eateries, is on pretty Cove Bay. On the beach, lounges with umbrellas welcome guests. Hot wings, honey-coated smoked ribs, curry goat, smoked chicken salad, and grilled lobsters are paired with local staple side dishes such as spiced-mayonnaise coleslaw, hand-cut sweet-potato strings, and crunchy onion rings. If your idea of the perfect summer lunch is a roadside lobster roll, be sure to try the version here, served on a home-baked roll with a hearty kick of hot sauce. The dinner menu includes lobster fritters, grilled tuna with lemon-caper butter, and rum chicken. On Saturday afternoon, a popular local band enlivens the casual, laid-back atmosphere, and on Sunday the restaurant is party central for locals and visitors alike.

    Beautiful spot, excellent food

    We loved our lunch at Smokey's. The bay is beautoful to watch as you eat and drink. Sitting on the patio you feel like you're in Fiji. We liked the island-infused menu. My wife's grilled snapper was her favorite meal on the island. If you come early in the afternoon beware. I was told that none of the signature chicken dishes were available because the delivery had not arrived yet. The only other minor disturbance was the slow service. We were one of only 5 tables this afternoon and our lunch took over 2 hours from ordering to check out. Granted you could spend a worse two hours with that view, but it unnecessarily cut into our swim time that day. Hint to beat "island time" - ask for the check when they deliver the food at any of the restaurants if you want to move onto other activitews swiftly.

    Great Roti

    We loved this spot. Funky, fun, casual and very local. Sat. afternoon is the time to visit to hear local music. We love the rotis and the beachview dining.

    The food is fast and fresh. Onion rings and wings are tops on island. Cove bay beach is among the tops as well. This is a place you will go to often during your stay.
