Love the Banana Deck! Service, atmosphere, and food were all fabulous. The Carribbean Chicken is absolutely delicious, and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his ribeye. Definitely recommend!

We went here for an early dinner and it was by far one of the best meals we had on our vacation in St. Thomas/St. John. The staff was very friendly and we loved the unique tree house like environment. We got the steaks with gorgonzola butter for the topping along with the baked potato and corn on the cob.... More

We enjoyed our meal at the Banana Deck. It was our first night in Cruz Bay. The staff made us feel welcomed and the food was great. My husband got the special of the evening and loved it. Can't wait to go back!

We stopped at the Banana Deck after it was recomended by our greeter. For what we had, it was very good. We arrived pretty late in the evening, so they were out of a few things, but the meal we had, the drinks we sampled and the location were all positives.

The rib eye steaks were excellent and came with perfectly cooked broccoli and potato. The salads were also very good with super fresh ingredients. Nice ambiance. One of our favorites in Cruz Bay!

We have been coming here for over a decade. The food is always consistent with no surprises. Fresh caught tuna was the best we have ever tasted. It's starting to look a little shabby and could do with a makeover. The staff are always very pleasant and unlike a lot of St. John restaurants, they actually have a good attitude... More

The food was just average. We waited over 30 minutes, and there were plenty of empty tables. I don't think they had enough help. When we did get served, the server was very nice. We went back again because friends wanted to go. The service was good, but the food was below average. Not impressed, and will not go back.

We have eaten at Banana Deck several times during our trips to ST. John, and all our local friends recommend it. We ate there during the fourth of July week and were very disappointed. The food was average/good, but service was terrible. We had a party of six, and an automatic gratuity was added, thus ensuring we would not see... More

One of the things they are noted for are their steaks and let me to tell you that is not been exaggerated the steak was tender and delicious. The other people in my group have a pasta dish which was so large they ended up taking doggie bags. Also would like to mention that their salads were cold crisp and... More

The food was average although the ribeye was quite good. Service was terrible, slow and inefficient. The restaurant was not busy and during the off-season so we expected a little better. Mahi was cooked appropriately however the rice was undercooked as was the broccoli.
