I visited St. Croix a few weeks ago, and this place was right next to where I was staying. My friend and I quickly became regulars because the place was so great. We went nearly everyday and Ezra and Rita were definitely the servers that stood out the most, but I don't have a single complaint about any of the... More

The only reason I din't give this lovely restaurant the fifth star is because of the very slow service. Our server was friendly and very good at her job -- except for the speed issue. My wife and I had dinner here on our last night in St.Croix, and we couldn't have enjoyed our meal and the scenery more. Our... More

Very refreshing stop after a day of sightseeing! We had lunch with a fabulous view of the Caribbean Sea and cooled off with the breeze swirling around us at out table (we did have to anchor our paper napkins and water bottles, however). The food was good although nothing to write home about, and the prices were a bit elevated... More

We loved the burgers and sandwiches for lunch. The waitstaff was friendly and the beach was beautiful. Great island atmosphere.

I LOVE shrimp. My wife, not so much. He tolerates shrimp. But I ordered the Bang Bang Shrimp and she ate most of it. We also had the calamari and drinks....Chimey for me... wife for her. The view from the deck was incredible... the wait staff was prompt and courteous. It was a nice little surprise stop for us after... More

This is a really nice restaurant on the grounds of the Sand Castle on the Beach hotel. Sitting is under cover with open sides, making for dining with beautiful views and nice breezes. On the night we ate here (a Sunday) I was not incredibly impressed with the food. I had ribs which were good but were very difficult to... More

We ate here our first day & it definitely reminded us we were on island time! It took 10-15 minutes to get our drinks - which were delicious, hand-made mojitos. So, just be aware. My husband & I each had a salad & 1 mojito, and after tip it was about $60. It was very good, though, and the only... More

The food was really good but way too overpriced. Also the drinks (sodas) are ridiculous expensive. $2.50 for about 4-5 oz in a plastic cup.
