Obviously, this Restaurant is located ON THE BEACH, on the West side of St. Croix. What a great setting for a wonderful fish dinner, and a great Sunset!

Food OK, but not the reason for stopping here. Instead, we would give the service an A+ for friendliness and general helpfulness and we would would give the location the same A+. The patio is right on the sand at the beach, as you might have guessed from its name and we would certainly recommend going.

The bartender knows how to make drinks the way they were meant to be made. We didn't try the food but it looked amazing, service was spot on and very friendly. We're thinking about heading back there tonight. It is located in between to vacation properties.

We went here after a couple of folks referred us to the cafe. Ordering a medium rare burger to go, we thought it would have some color if not a lot. The burger was really dry and overcooked. Yuk. The fries were so wet and droopy, unlike fries we had at Rose's. All in all our short walk to next... More

We left Sandy Point and headed here for lunch. The staff was very friendly and sat us quickly. We ordered duck quesadillas and bbq pulled pork sandwhich with sweet potato fries. Both entrees were delicious. The service was great and the view was amazing!

We went here for dinner and to catch the sunset. He food and cocktails were top notch. My husband and I split our dinner. They presented our "splint" dinner on separate plates with full size portions of the sides on each plate. Yummy!
