Over a 10 day period we stayed and dined in St. Thomas and St. Croix. Without exception every one of the restaurants we experienced rated a “5” for the meal but when looking at the entire package only one rated a 5 overall. Little missteps brought some to a 4 but we would visit every one of these establishments again.... More

Definitely a gorgeous scene at sunset and romantic setting with live music weekends. Food is very high quality and the lobster is amazing! Service is top notch, you will not be disappointed. Make sure to make reservation and menu is a little pricey for the island.

We have stayed in Bucaneer and visited Kendrick's Lounge for dinner. Food tasted great. A little on the pricey side. The restaurant is located at the top of a hill in the resort and has great views. Perfect place to have drinks and conversation. There was also live music later in the evening.

Plane was late but the restaurant served us with no problem. The fish piccata was the best ever. Six children had their own table. Waiter could not have been nicer. All in all a great experience!

I know - it's hard to make ends meet on an island. And you weren't on the 'beaten' path or on the board walk. And you tried to be upscale in a world that wants fast food and Subways. But you were our 'go to' nice place - where one could be sure of a quiet relaxing meal in pleasant... More

I'm sad to hear this restaurant is now closed. We ate at many restaurants on St Croix and this one was by far the best! I had a lobster dish that was very unique and delicious. The outdoor courtyard was beautiful and the wait staff was 5-star. That was in 2001 and we have been hoping to make it back... More

Dave and Jane Kendricks have been mainstays of the fine dining experience on St. Croix for decades. They have closed the restaurant as of May 2014, but we are looking forward to seeing what they might do next!
