Beach front dining on Nevis!

We have teamed up with blogger and travel writer Charli Moore to provide you with an insider’s guide to our beautiful island’s activities and attractions. She’ll also be reviewing Nevis’ varied array of eateries and beach bars; here she talks to Greg Slagon, owner of the all-American Yachtsman Grill.

Swapping the frigid landscapes of America’s Midwest for the rain-forested idylls of Nevis, adventurous aeronaut and prolific traveler Greg Slagon arrived on the island with no real plan as to how he would invest himself in the tight-knit Nevisian community. Launching the Yachtsman Grill some seven years ago, he and his wife Evelyn have created a vibrant, nautical-inspired hideaway serving wholesome American favorites to visitors and locals alike.

A bold menu of big burgers, steaks, and fresh seafood, coupled with what Greg believes to be the island’s most comprehensive wine cellar and selection of bottled and on-tap beers, gastronomes will be in seventh heaven when dining at the Yachtsman Grill. Pick-your-own local or Maine lobster from a tank by the bar, or sample one of their famous wood-fired, thin-crust pizzas that boast all-Italian ingredients from the flour in the base right through to the pepperoni on top. Head out onto the manicured beach-front and relax on one of the comfy sunbeds, or work up an appetite playing beach-basketball, volleyball, and the bean bag toss.

Quick fire questions with owner Greg

What would you recommend to first time diners?
Greg says, “For a true taste of the Caribbean choose from our collection of rums and ask our bartender Denzel to mix a cocktail of your choice. Our righteous lobster mac and cheese is a real hit with diners young and old, and the wood-fired pizzas are a must-try from our menu!”

Tell me something interesting about yourself:
“I’m a really creative guy. I design and make a lot of graphic signage for companies all over the island. I made our Yachtsman Grill sign out there on the road, pretty cool don’t you think?”

What is your favorite place or activity on Nevis?
“I’m probably biased, but I think there’s no better way to see the island than aboard a Funky Monkey Tour. We offer small group adventures in open-air Polaris 4x4s and showcase the island’s best on and off-road sights; from beach and bush, to resorts and ruins.”
