South Coast Bar & Grill is the successor of Reef Point Bar & Restaurant,
which was founded by mother and son, Ms.Ventris and Mr.Charles
Powell in December 1978. Ventris loves cooking and magical touch
with ingredients and Charle's passion for fishing was the perfect recipe for a local coastal restaurant.
Long before they entered the restaurant business, Ventris was already
lending her cooking talents to The Lighthouse Club and Decker's
Restaurant in George Town. Meanwhile, Charles was employed with
the government as a fireman and devoted much of his spare time to
fishing. His extensive knowledge of the waters from East End to
Bodden Town and his great fisherman's luck led to an abundance of
local fish. Having more food than the family could eat and a generous
spirit, Ventris began preparing local dishes, which Charles would share
with his colleagues at work. In no time at all the demand for their food
become so overwhelming, that Reef Point Restaurant & Bar was born.
After 26 years of serving locals and visitors alike the restaurant was
completely destroyed by Hurricane Ivan on September 11, 2004. This
was a devastating loss for the whole family, which by then had already
included younger brother Tony who had left the financial industry,
after 19 years, to manage the family business with part-time help from
his wife Licci, since 1996. Today if you look out the window to the east,
you can see the humber remains.
Tony and Licci, who are now the new owners of the restaurant, were
determined to continue the family traditions of local foods in a
friendly, seaside location with local cuisine, moderate prices, and an atmosphere to socialize like neighbors.
Two years after the storm, on December 29th, 2006 a new
establishment named South Coast Bar & Grill opened its doors to locals and visitors.
Today Ventris is now resting in eternal peace but caters to the family
restaurant in many ways. If you are ordering a local dish it is her recipe
that is used by the staff. Charles, while no longer active in the
restaurant business, still supplies his catches to the restaurant. It is still
a family business with Tony's daughters Darice, Samantha, Kasey, Jizel
and Son-in-law Howard contributing toward the success of the
restaurant. There is a sure chance you may see our family as you relax
and enjoy our hospitality. Once again welcome to our islands and the village of Breakers.
