As a STX local, Beach Side Cafe is a favorite! There is always a charming and quaint ambiance and consistently great food. The wait staff is fun and friendly, the owners are creative with their eclectic menu options and effort to encourage a community appreciation for gourmet food and fine wine. The beer and wine club is an excellent idea... More

We had originally planned on going to a different restaurant that evening but ended up at the Beach Side Cafe. So glad we did. We were early and had no reservation so we were told to come back at 6:00 (opening time) to put in our names . Little bummed about that we left, drove around town and came back... More

We have been going to the Beach Side Cafe for 10+ years and have never been dissappointed. The food is delicious and the wait sevice is fantastic. Ask for Rita. Often we get there in time to see the sunset on the Carribean Ocean in hopes of seeing "The Green Flash". If it's a clear sun set, you'll be in... More

Good place to go for calm island time and a good salad or nice beachy day. Don't go if you are in a hurry but do go if you are not! Ask for a beachside table - ya mon.

We heard good reviews of this place from the locals. It sits right on the beach which is great for watching sunsets. The service was incredibly slow. Island time is one thing but we waited more than an hour for our food to arrive. We saw many tables of people come and be served after we placed our order which... More

Service and food are great! The appetizers are wonderful and they serve a chocolate dessert that's to die for. The location right on the beach is perfect for Sunday Brunch or watching the sun set.

Beach Side Cafe is a great place to view the sunset while dining. The sun sets directly over the water. There are only a few tables right on the rail next to the beach, so be sure to make a reservation and ask for one. We had requested a table on the beach based on other reviews, but it appeared...

We went on a non-busy day, after returning from the stables. The food selections and drinks were terrific, and the service was great. We also enjoyed swimming on the less crowded beach with beautiful views of the Frederiksted pier.

I was disappointed on this trip with Sand Castle's food. The special of the night was a pricey Sesame Tuna. We both ordered it and asked for it to come very rare. My husband's was cooked correctly but mine was too well done, grey at one end and barely pink at the other. Very disappointing. The waitress was all over... More
