I found the Banana Deck to be my favorite establishment in Cruz Bay, by far. Laid back, open air, DELICIOUS FOOD,..........great drinks, and a fantastic Management & Wait Staff. The Grilled Yellowfin Salad is beyond awesome, and they are "famous" for their Rib-Eye steaks. I can whole heartedly vouch for that ! AWESOME !.............My wife and I visited the Banana... More

We went to the Banana Deck on the last night it was open for the season and we were so mad that we didn't make it there sooner. The food was excellent. We both had rib eye steaks with baked potatoes. Both were perfectly cooked. We also had a fried banana cheesecake with vanilla ice cream for desert. It was... More

Overall the restaurant was really good, but I wasn't thrilled with the waitress (slow, and not happy to split checks over large group); and wasn't thrilled that they couldn't be a little more accommodating with allergies. Rather than try to change up a meal, the waitress just kept crossing off entrees that my daughter couldn't eat because they had this... More

We stopped in for drinks and lunch on our day spent in Saint John. The man who greeted us was super friendly and gave us a nice table, up in this treehouse like setting with open air. We ordered some cold, refreshing cocktails which took a while but were worth the wait. The food was very tasty, cooked just right!... More

We loved the location and the "tree house" like atmosphere of the restaurant...and they're open late! Our meals were pretty good, but not excellent. Husband had the seafood alfredo with shrimp and scallops, which he enjoyed, but again, not the BEST thing he has ever had. I had the Caribbean Chicken which was similar to chicken cordon bleu, which was... More
