The Beach Side Cafe is a fabulous place as far as atmosphere, food and service. We ate there many times during our vacation and found the personnel to be delightful. The food was very delicious with a nice variety of sea-foods, pastas and salads which I really enjoyed. We found their prices reasonable. I would highly recommend the Beach Side... More

We visited this place as we stayed on the beach that day. It took forever to get the food, they waitress didn't even stop by to tell it was taking a while... Nevertheless, The piña colada was among the best I ever had! My son just wanted some sweet potato fries, as they had no kid menu. Apparently they were... More

Decided to try Beachside Cafe again to see if our experience would be the same as before. This time we tried the Sunday brunch. We both loved our choices, they were prepared well, priced appropriately, and service was prompt and courteous. All I can say is we will be back.

Our annual visit to St. Croix always includes one or two visits to the Beach Side Café. They do take reservations and it is needed if you want a beach side table.

We caught a late lunch at the Beach Side. We came in a bit late, but the wait staff was gracious and welcoming and served us from a limited menu. Our meals were fresh, appealing and tasty. The view of the beach was fantastic. This was a great place to relax and people watch!

I am in my 70s and have traveled much of the world and submit many reviews to TA. Our lunch experience at the Beach Side Cafe was the WORST service we have ever received at ANY restaurant anywhere. We went here because of the location on the beach near some good snorkeling areas. Our landlady here on St. Croix warned... More
