St. Bart's,

Opened in 1949, this casual snack bar that’s renowned for its hamburgers is said to be the inspiration for Jimmy Buffet's hit song "Cheeseburger in Paradise." From the menu of inexpensive burgers, the house specialty is the double-bacon cheeseburger—also known as the Marius Special after the establishment's founder. The garden patio seating area offers simple plastic chairs and a boisterous atmosphere, a perfect place for sipping tropical cocktails with ingredients like dark rum, pineapple juice, and lemon. There’s usually reggae and other Caribbean tunes playing, as well as live music some nights.
