At least once during our annual visit to St. Croix we would go the Kendrick's for dinner. We knew they were trying to sell the restaurant and discovered this year that they did sell it, but have relocated to the Buccaneer. We went one night to celebrate a birthday and frankly came away disappointed. Many of the old mainstay items... More

Compared to other restaurants at St. Croix who made fantastic and tasty Food and where the prices are the same. Alert, Alert: The Music in this retaurant is so loud that you can't hear what the waiter... More

We were pleased to find that Dave and Jane Kendrick's surfaced at the Buccaneer Hotel after closing their iconic restaurant in downtown Christiansted. We were further pleased with the food, the setting, the service and the warmth of the greeting upon our return. Dave Kendricks doesn't need my endorsement ... his food is 5-star no matter where or when. Simply,... More

Our family of 8 chose this restaurant for lunch on our first day of vacation because it was close to where we were staying, it was part of a beautiful resort where we planned to golf later in the week and because it was on the beach. It opened at 11:30 a.m. so we went a bit early to make... More

The freshest yahoo I've ever had. A really good spinach salad. Okay bread. Good wine list. If the ice cream had been homemade it would have made a big difference. Really good key lime pie Great atmosphere. I give the service a 9.

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.
