Grat view but very average and pricey food.

Nice location with good seats and view. Unfortunately the food was very average and somewhat pricey like all the restaurants in Coral Bay.

Shipwreck Landing is perfect for dinner! The location is excellent, right off the road but with a water view. The food has been consistently delicious from year to year. The selection is always great and the service is excellent too! We eat at Shipwreck every time we're in the Love City!

We have been to this restaurant many times over our 5 trips to St.John and always loved it. Something changed-- maybe new owners. Went twice on this trip and both times were disappointed. Location and atmosphere nice as before, but waiters were unattentive, the food was less then average and the portions were very small compared to times past, even... More

We stopped by here for lunch after learning that Miss Lucy's was closed on Mondays. The atmosphere was good, with a nice view and great breeze. The restaurant was busy, as food options are limited in the area. The service reflected how busy it was... We were promptly seated, but saw our waitress twice the entire meal... once to take...

We came upon this place and it was so intriguing we just HAD to stop in. We were glad we did, we saw a sandwich being delivered and had to try it! It was an oyster sandwich and even though neither of us are big oyster eaters, it was INCREDIBLE. Everything we ate was packed with flavor and the view... More

There's nothing horribly wrong with Shipwreck Landing. It's just not great. In an area like Coral Bay, where the food choices are limited, you could do worse. We chose it as our dinner spot for Valentine's evening and the food was mediocre at best. As I've said before, you don't come to St. John for the food...and if you do,... More

After witnessing a very disturbing street fight (that included a machete), we were looking for a dinner spot out of Cruz Bay! After a great day at Cinnamon Bay, we decided to head toward Coral Bay to see what we could find. We stumbled upon Shipwreck landing and had our best meal all week. The atmosphere was lively and the... More

We come to St. John every February and eat at Shipwreck as our first night meal. This year was no different and the food was delicious. I had the grouper special and my husband had the mahi special. We both loved our meals. Service good. Only four stars since the rest of the menu hasn't changed much. I am happy... More

Any night and not sure where to go stick to an ole faithful. The Very Good Here is always consistent. The grouper with the lime chipotle sauce had just the right flavor and was plentiful. I found the polenta to gummy for my liking, but had lots of flavor. The mahi mahi was grilled Perfectly but needed more of that... More
