Several years ago, Linda and Jack Parker decided to leave the business world behind in Phoenix, Arizona, and retire to St. Maarten. No sooner had they found a pub here where they learned to relax than Shawn, who today is their maitre d’, told them “I hope you’re able to find someplace else you like, because the owner is closing this place.”
Aghast, Linda and Jack did the only thing two sensible retired people could do to protect their retirement watering hole: they bought the place.
Then another crisis appeared. “You know,” they concluded, “there’s not a single good steakhouse down here.” So they set out to build Peg Leg into a first-class steakhouse, the island’s first and easily its most popular. (Peg Leg doesn’t put on airs --- dress is casual, as always.)
Today, in new and larger quarters, Linda and Jack serve what diners have voted the island’s best steaks plus a huge menu of seafood and other specialties, appetizers, desserts, and hearty lunches.
Maybe they’ll retire some day, but not now. They’re too busy serving their loyal clientele great food and drink at Peg Leg!
