Mahi Piccata-fabulous

If you visit St Croix and don't try Kendrick's signature dish, mahi piccata, at the Buccaneer then you missed the best fish dish ever!

Made our stay at the Bucaneer resort Perfect! The sword fish was awesome, and the lamb chops outstanding! Live entertainment was very enjoyable!

Beautiful setting great sunsets. Spectacular food and service. Outdoor dining with class. Dave Kendricks continues to impress with his unique menu of Caribbean cuisine.

Overall the food quality was lacking for the price. I had a $18 grilled cheese that wasn't anything special. The menu didn't change while we stayed at the hotel.

Couldn't be better -- these are the former owners of an extremely well regarded restaurant, they are now operating from the Buccaneer. Locals love it, tourist never miss.

Our extended family ate at Kendrick's so we had a range of palates to satisfy ranging from young teens to seniors. Collectively, our view of the food was "meh." indeed, it reminded me of an old generic restaurant in Berkeley called Skates - turns out, the same chain owns both. With entrees generally running $30-$40 I expect something more. I... More

We have eaten with Chef Kendrick at his original location over the years and it was always special and now at the Buccaneer it is even better. This was a special occasion visit with family and friends before our sons wedding a few days later and wanted our first time... More

The food was just okay. For the money I would have expected more. The salmon burger is decent, but they slather it with mayo.

During our stay at the Buccaneer we dinned one evening at Kendricks. All the food was delicious but it was very pricy. They had live entertainment the night we ate there and from staying a few doors down know they had different live entertainment every night. The view of Christiansted from the restaurant is beautiful as we ate while watching... More
