    An institution in the BVI. Not a relaxing visit by any means, it’s crowded and not easy to find a table. That said, I was impressed that the Painkillers were half the price we had elsewhere on the islands. If you’re on Jost Van Dyke it’s worth the experience given the reputation and history.

    Great Experience!
    Really great vibe here - one of our top two beaches to visit on a trip to the VI! The food at The Soggy Dollar is fantastic (with prices that are surprisingly low for this destination), the beach is pristine, and the view of the boats is an added bonus. We met some really nice people from all over the world. Looking forward to a return trip!

    Delicious lunch - beautiful beach - amazing Painkillers!
    This is a perfect beachside lunch on the most beautiful beach in the BVI! Our excursion boat for the day pulled up, and we jumped into the crystal clear blue water, and then walked up onto the Sandy shore, where we ordered painkillers and food for everyone! The food was delicious. First come first serve seating at picnic tables out on the beach. Afterwards, you can just relax in the water with, a painkiller from the home of the original recipe!

Soggy Dollar is good to go one time - beautiful beach and drinks - very touristy and crowded. Very good frozen painkiller.

Pain Killer, need I say more? Go see Dr. Leon, he makes a great drink! Great beach bar to both chill or party. Something for everyone.

Classic place to visit. Books and movies make pop cultural references to this place yet it has maintained its charm. Painkillers are “the” drink, but pretty much can get a variety of mixed drinks as per the menu board. Hang at the beach, watch the boats come in, people watch (don’t know which celeb with entourage may show) and just relax in this beautiful environment.

A soggy dollar visit is a must for anyone in the BVI. The original home of the painkiller, and of its own mighty fine rum - plus while you’re ordering a drink, take a look at the emergency services badges of the world on the ceiling (I spotted Cornwall Police, see if you can find it!). The food is pretty good - but the service is excellent, the setting sublime, and the atmosphere is brilliant and a lot of fun. Seek out Leon the bar man and marvel at the speed (and quality) at which he churns out a bucket of painkillers.
