We stopped in before and after a sail trip. Melissa, our server, was excellent and brought us great food and wonderful blended drinks. Shark bites(Grouper) and Jerk chicken are excellent with any of the drinks.

I love the location of this restaurant/bar and the food and drinks are AWESOME! I've visited St. Thomas every year over the past 3 years and always make sure my friends and I stop at The Big Kahuna. Our favorite bartender, Laurel, is always smiling and she's a great bartender! You can choose to eat inside or outside, either way,... More

Best meal all week! Magi sliders were incredible. Skip the pricey stuff -- wear your flip flops and a tank top! Sit outside on the waterfront and let Melissa serve you up some amazing drinks and off-the-chart delicious good!!!

We were on vacation in St. Thomas and lunched at the Big Kahuna. The view was breath taking. The food was delicious. The service provided by Melissa was outstanding, she went out of her way to take care of us.

Great flat bread sandwich. Wonderful view and terrific server Isis. We've been going back for some years now and it's still the same good food and service.

The ambiance was great. Crowd was mixed, locals and tourists. Super location to relax-chill out, have some drinks, eat and share war stories. " Isis ", as a visitor that my wife and I were, she made is feel relaxed and comfortable. Must visit place to visit when in St Thomas. Thank you Isis for your hospitality!

When you are shopping downtown Charlotte Amalie, you can rest and refresh yourself with a stop at Big Kahuna Rum Shack. It's EASY to find, right on the waterfront! We sat outside, relaxed and watched all the people go by. This place has a lot of interesting regulars as well as excited vacationers. The drinks are refreshing, the service is... More

I've lived on St Thomas for two years now and have been to big kahuna quite a few times, so when my parents said they were coming down to visit I thought it would be a great spot to bring them after shopping downtown. My parents fell in love with not only the fish tacos but our server Melissa. I'm... More

Stayed on St. Thomas for a week. Went to Big Kahuna Rum Shack and had an excellent meal and drinks. We ordered the Jerk Chicken appetizer which came with Island Brown Rice. We absolutely fell in love with the Island Brown Rice! So much so that we ordered an extra side of it. After many days of very sweet drinks,... More
