My family and I enjoyed the tacos and burritos, absolutely delicious!!! We also liked the roosters walking around our table, we didn't mind sharing some food with them, they don't eat much.

Had a really good burger here. Probably have a good view of the cruise ships when they're in port. Oh yeah, and rum drinks!

Had the Great Thatch omlette, and though smaller than most other restaurant omelettes (2-egg?) the vegetarian fillings that included black olives made this a very tasty option. Loved the fact that toast was pre buttered so melted and toast was nice and crispy. Only restaurant so far in St Thomas that pre butters your toast! I was happy. Service so-so... More

Stopped in while running around Charlotte Amalie...THEY NOW SERVE BREAKFAST! With Bloody Mary's the breakfast early hit the spot. They have all of the typical frozen drinks and a lot of specialties like infused liquors. The staff is attentive and friendly and the view of the bay is very nice.

Went to town on the last day of our trip and made the Big Kahuna our first stop on a friends recommendation. My only regret is we did not have more time to visit. Great location in a tourist town but has a neighborhood bar feel. The staff makes you feel very welcome just like you were a local. Staff... More

Hot day in Charlotte Amalie led us here - was a great little surprise for lunch. Was extremely reasonable in regards to cost (domestic beers at $3.75, imported at $4.75) and provided the best burger I've had on the island. Highly recommended for a break from shopping or other activities downtown.

Stopped here for lunch after a cruise ship excursion. It is a great little place that lets you experience the local culture including a couple of roosters that wander around that are regulars. The service was really good and the food was great - you can tell that the chef knew what he was doing by how it was presented... More
