FYI, when I visited in January 2013 De Loose Mongoose restaurant was out of business. A couple guys had opened the bar for the holidays, but they seemed to be a long way off from getting the restaurant running.

Last Resort was still in business but closed the day we were there. It looked like a pretty cool place. I'd advise visiting it while you still can, because it's unclear if the proposed runway expansion would put them out of business.

If BVI moves ahead with a 7000' runway that can accommodate big, loud jets, the whole ambiance of that area will be negatively impacted. I know this from experience, since I keep my own boat at the end of the runway for Philly airport.
