We read Trip Advisor and this place was highly ranked, so we tried it. It's nothing fancy, we sat outside and the only negative was the smell of trash nearby. The hamburger was great, one of the best I have ever had in the Caribbean. The waitress, Isis, did a great job serving us and she kept our coke glasses... More

Big Kahuna Rum Hut was a great place to hang out. The food was good and the drinks were excellent. The staff was very friendly. The bartender Isis was wonderful and very helpful. Ask her for her tips for things to do and see around town.

I the best time there on Friday with Tanji and Briana those two know how to make you feel welcomed and have a great time. Good service is so hard to find in the Virgin Islands, but they are of one a kind.

My daughter had two beef and I had one beef and one chicken. They were very tasty but got messy, so my daughter asked the waitress for larger plates.... More

We stay on Jost Van Dyke in the BVIs but always hit Big Kahuna on the way back before we go to the airport. It has an outdoor patio with perfect views of the harbor, inexpensive but good food, tons of delicious drink options and great service. Hummus appetizer with warm pita bread, flat bread chicken pizzas, and grilled Mahi... More

During a week long vacation to St. Thomas & St. John - this was our only bad experience. We were one of the first customers for lunch. It took 40 (yes FORTY) minutes to get our food. We told the waitress when we were first seated that we were headed to the airport. We inquired about our food after 30... More

We stumbled across this place and had low expectations because of its appearance and because its tourist trap location. But the food was outstanding. Very good fish tacos made with local fish. Good drinks. Friendly service (nice conversation with a waitress from Lubbock)
