We spent the entire week trying to find another dessert to match the Xango - nothing beats it!!!! Loved the staff (ask for Christine - ziggy's mom); steaks are good; cut fresh daily; mahi mahi was good - nice outdoor space with a great view of Cruz Bay

Ate here our first night on St. John. The prices are high but for what you get totally worth it. The food and service was wonderful. I don't eat a lot of seafood so this place was a good pick!!

Overlooking Cruz Bay, this spot is a great place to enjoy the sunset with some cocktails and dinner. Varied menu with focus on seafood. Had the fresh fish of the day which was excellent. Kids menu available. Make reservations! Told we wouldn't need - but when we arrived there was an hour wait.

We have eaten at the Bannana Deck before so we knew what to expect here. Great food at normal St. John's prices.

My wife and I stopped in Banana Deck for lunch on a Sunday and it was great. I had a buffalo chicken sandwich and my wife had a Mahi wrap. Both our meals were very good and the view of Cruz Bay makes it a great casual spot.

Nice location to walk through Cruz Bay and end up sitting at the Banana Deck for a nice drink and dinner. We had sandwiches and they were delicious - just hit the spot!

Our first visit to Banana Deck was SPECTACULAR. We were a group of six, and every one of our meals was prepared perfectly. The atmosphere was fun, and we were all pleased with our experience. We opted to return instead of trying another recommended option. To be fair, we dined early and mid week, and our food was good, but... More

Went here our first night. they advertised a mahi with mango relish that drew us in but when we ordered we learned it was gone. I ordered seafood grille blackened which was good but for 30 bucks a bit skimpy. My husband was disappointed that fish special was gone so he had a quesadilla. Kids had fish tenders. It was... More

My wife & I went to dinner at The Banana Deck in Cruz Bay. We wanted a casual dinner & this place solved that comfortably. My wife ordered the chicken skewers & the chicken was tender & very tasty. They were accompanied by a serving of rice that my wife raved about. The restaurant prides itself on its ribeyes so... More

I went to the banana deck a few different times, once for dinner and another time just for drinks. Both times we were not disappointed! The location is great, right in town but it's up a little higher so you get a nice breeze. The drinks are amazing! (And they are very generous pours with wine) Everyone at our table... More
