Love the music

Great slushi cocktails and locals are friendly. On Friday night - should order snacks early as they close kitchen about 9. The atmosphere is casual and laidback

My boyfriend and I hung out at The Big Kahuna quite a bit. The staff was friendly, the drinks were good and reasonably priced too. Won a couple hundreds playing the slot machines in the back of the bar, so that was fun. Their shark bites are really tasty so I recommend them! Their salads are also pretty good, it's... More

We visited the Big Kahuna on a Saturday night in July. Unfortunately, we didn't realize that the restaurant is not stocked on days when the cruise ships are not in port. We thought we'd head down to town on a night when it wasn't too crowded and get a nice dinner. No stores are open-only the locals are walking the... More

Great local bar. They don't skimp on the alcohol. Waterfront view was a plus. Reasonable prices. Fish tacos were awesome. A must stop.....

We stumbled upon this restaurant looking for a nice lunch before heading to board our flights home. It was quite close to the ferry dock. Great food, great view, great service.

A nice little place to enjoy an evening meal and enjoy a live band. The menu offer a little of everything. The rum drinks are fantastic. You can people watch, chicken watch and enjoy the waterfront.

Members of my family were in town for our family reunion and had a great time! The reggae band was great and the food and drinks were great for happy hour.

I'm usually pretty positive on reviews but I can't be this time. The wait and the attitude from the server at Big Kahuna was ridiculous!! The restaurant was just about empty and we waited about an hour and fifteen minutes for our food. Our server, Brittany, could care less. After 45 minutes I simply asked if our food was about...

Directly across from where the ocean liners dock this is a great place to have a quick bite, sample some tropical cocktails, and overlook the water. Not the best food in town but adequate.Staff was very friendly and accommodating on the off days when there were not alot of ships in port. A bit too busy when crowded. Went there... More

Great drinks in a relaxed outside patio setting. We enjoyed lunch while singing to the great tunes on their radio. The Outside sitting area has beautiful waterfront view of Charlotte Amalie bay.
