We jumped off the dollar safari for the first time in St Thomas and stumbled in here. Found a seat, had a sweet waitress ( Nicole?) and some mediocre food w good drinks. The waitress advised us happy hour price discounts. My wife had a pineapple crush frozen drink that was deelish. I had a nice cold Carib beer (... More

A townie local sent us here, saying it's her favorite hangout. At first, the signage and loud music made us think it was a bit touristy and definitely for the younger crowd, but we decided to stay anyway and were so glad we did! Our service, Noelle, was incredibly warm and friendly without being too in-our-faces or pushy. She was... More

St. Thomas is a little goofy when it comes to restaurant timings. A lot of them seem to cater to cruise ships. Once the ships leave, the restaurants close. That's what happened when we got to Big Kahuna on Sunday evening. We went there for dinner a couple days later. They are definitely not a Mexican restaurant. They have some... More

We were directed to this great pub by the owner of another bar that was closing to go there. The drinks were very good, (you could actually taste the booze). The sandwiches we had were on sale for happy hour and were great. Try it, you will like it!

We stopped in for a few drinks and decided to eat lunch. Isis was a wonderful and friendly server. She suggested a few items that were delicious, and she also kept checking back with us to make sure we had everything we needed. It was a fun place and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice drink... More

The food is wonderful and the wait staff is very friendly. The view from the restaurant is absolutely amazing. You can't go wrong when dining here. Their prices, food, view and everything is just magnificent - stop in and visit them and you won't be disappointed.

Had a good time at happy hour, good food (bar food mostly) and super good frozen drinks. Sat outside and watched the people milling around from cruise ships. Great stop.

Big Kahuna Rum Shack is a great place to eat in St. Thomas. Good prices, great food, and a wonderful view of the water if you chose to eat outside. Noelle was a super friendly server and all her recommendations were right on! Wish I could escape to there now!
