The island's quintessential beach bar is laidback central, with rustling seagrape trees and saucy calypso music to accompany the exemplary island food and drink. A collection of covered open-air shacks and wooden pavilions, Mr. Busby's is open for breakfast and lunch, and both meals pack of wallop of flavor. Don't miss the homemade johnnycakes, the killer potato salad (yes, the potato salad), or anything island-centric—and that would include grilled Saba lobster, conch salad, Busby's barbecued ribs, and guavaberry colada. After happy hour (4–6pm), Mr. Busby's segues to the slighter fancier Daniel's by the Sea, which serves a menu of hearty Italian standards.
