Food was fabulous!!! Location was divine. Met lovely folks there that really made our trip special. However, they were closing after that night for the remainder of our vacation, but the best food we had out!

I ordered the Thai noodle stir fry which was $18 without any meat on it. The food was good, but I thought it was a bit overpriced. The view was nice, but be prepared for the bugs if you are dining in the evening.

Very good food and service, great location. Not really vegetarian friendly, only had one entree available. Most restaurants provide 2-3 options.

We stayed next door at the Cottages By The Sea so we had the convenience of enjoying dinner here several nights in a row. We normally would not do the same restaurant multiple nights, but the food was just so good. I ate the same dish every night, too!!! Shrimp and grits with feta cheese!! Make this a staple on... More

We had lunch & dinner there and loved it. Literally right on the beach. Cudos to the new chef! Plus, on Saturday night they had a live band. There was a good crowd but it still was not loud. Eating there while the sun set and a gentle breeze blowing was amazing.

Having lived here in paradise for just over a year, we have tried nearly every brunch Sunday on the island. BUT we always come back to Beachside. You need to make a day of it. Arrive at 11:00 for brunch which I promise will be awesome. Omelets, french toast, or the best burger on island, you will not be disappointed.... More

This place was recommended by our host Win Welsh, she said they had a very good brunch. She wasn't kidding! Although like everyplace else on the island food is expensive. However I thought this brunch was worth the price. We had a table overlooking the beach, had a cocktail and more food then we could eat, we were stuffed. The... More

This beachside restaurant in Fredrickstad, St Croix has one of the absolutely most stunning ambiance. Sets right on the beach and can have dinner tabled in the sand. Very romantic. Exceptional food and decent prices. Try the Ban bang shrimp! Yum!,,,, A true Gem in the Caribbean.
