OK- so I am biased because Cheri is my cousin. Still, Cheri's Cafe has been voted best bar in the Caribbean. A central gathering point next to the Casino Royale, Cheri's is the place to be on the Dutch side at night.
An extensive appetizer menu has all the favorites--popcorn shrimp, fried calamari, wings, mozzarella sticks. The restaurant serves both lunch and dinner, and is also a great spot for after-dinner drinks. Cheri's aims to please any meat lover with its 18-ounce steaks and 1/2-pound burgers. There's also a nice selection of fresh seafood and fish dishes. Pasta such as fettuccine alfredo and lasagna, chicken entrees, sandwiches, omelets, and salads round out the restaurant's offerings.
Closed Tuesday in the off-season. There is a live band nightly (Sweet Chocolat) from 7:30pm to 12. The music is mellower during dinner and really heats up around 10 PM. They always seem to have the BEST entertainment.
