I'm used to fried fish taco but these were grilled and very good, not to mention healthier! Drinks were great especially for $5 and the service... read more

If you are staying on St. Thomas, or in on a cruise, the Big Kahuna Rum Shack is worth a stop on your trip. We dropped into the Big Kahuna Rum Shack after receiving a two-for-one voucher from the tourist service kiosk. We did not partake in the food on the menu, but did work through several of the items...

This was an awesome place to stop and relax after a busy day. Some of the best frozen drinks I've had. Super friendly service. The food was some of the best I had on my trip. I recommend this place to anyone who was a good drink, good food, or just relax after a hard day.

Premixed frozen drinks were ok, a bit lite on the alcohol. 8p and both the kitchen and bathroom were closed. Bartenders were real friendly and we met some friendly locals who gave us some suggestions for other places to check out while on the island.

Great place to stop and have a drink and watch the bay. They offer several different island drinks and Angie bartender was the BEST. Try the Coconut Mojitos, they are very refreshing and quenched the thirst.

I liked the atmosphere at The Big Kahuna - lots of locals and tourists hanging out for a drink, very friendly waitresses & bartenders, TV and surf movies running quietly in the background. There's also a nice outside patio. The food was surprisingly good for pub grub - I had the fish tacos twice and was very pleased. If you're... More

We were on a cruise and on a mission to find some wifi. We stopped at this restaurant because it was recommended by the cruise shopping guide. We were welcomed by a great bartender who was super friendly. She sat down and she came quick to serve us. My husband had a frozen drink and I had their locally made... More
