Found this place in mongoose junction. Restaurant is a small kitchen with outdoor patio tables. I had the shrimp quesadilla and my husband had the jerk chicken tacos. Both entrees were quite good! Would definitely recommend this place to others!

Had a great dinner here one night. Mexi-cali dip was awesome. Tuna appetizer was enjoyed by other members of the group. Steak tacos were so good. Our server, Jennifer, was wonderful. Also enjoyed the sangria.

We love to come here when cruising around Cruz Bay. Located in Mongoose Junction, the Sun Dog whips out delicious dishes from a kitchen that is the size of a u haul trailer. I love to order several appetizers and share them. The service is always excellent, friendly and happy. Nice breeze sitting under the shaded umbrellas and fun to... More

Sitting outside in the shade and getting a nice breeze was an excellent way to spend lunch time. We had the Shrimp Vera Cruz (excellent) and the Blind Betty's Chicken Roti (very tasty). Capped it off with a great piece of Key Lime Pie. I would definitely eat here again.

From time to time I have enjoyed their Sunday Brunch, which starts at 10 am and ends a 2 pm. They do a lovely experience of Eggs Benedict. Service is polite and prompt. Thinking of going their tomorrow again. My grandson Dominic from Atlanta, Georgia had a Mexican dish, which he enjoyed.

This is one of my favorite restaurants hands down. Between the kitchen that is the size of a small storage closet to the creative and fun specials, the food is always a treat. The puff pastry is always a family favorite and we love coming here and ordering a bunch of stuff and sharing it so we do not have... More

My family and I visited St. John for the first time this year. We had heard from locals that this place was awesome so we decided to check it out. Not only was the food to die for (I had "the burrito that ate Cruz Bay") but the service we had was also excellent! Jamie was beyond helpful with giving... More

We've been visiting St John for over 20 years. I can't remember when Sun Dog opened for business but it is one of our favorite bar and food destinations on the island. It's always a difficult choice between one of the Ahi Tuna dishes, the killer Burrito, and the frequently offered daily puff pastry special. Oh, but the texas chicken... More
