I know, burgers on the island just seems to be so "non island" but the burgers (including salmon burgers, mahi sandwich, etc.) are simply delightful. We ate there three times and would have gone back again if there would have been another lunch open. We had the peanut butter and bacon burger, mahi sandwich, lam burger, bon mi sandwich and...

This place was great, good food, located not far from our home. Staff was great, Bushwackers were great and had a neat shopping area.

We had dinner at the Waterfront Restaurant while taking a cruise on the Lady Lyndsey from the Ritz Carlton St Thomas. My wife and i had a beet salad followed by a Filet Mignon which was cooked to perfection. The food was moderatey priced and cheaper than the Ritz Carlton, but just as good, if not better.

It's usually hard to get excited about a burger place, but this one is exceptional at every level. First, it is located in Wharfside Village, which is adjacent to the ferry terminal in St. John, and is very chic in appearance and has spectacular views of the water. It features burgers of every kind and description, from tuna to lamb,... More

Lovely view and great service. The salad was delicious and plenty for two to share. Hubby had the filet and I had the scallops; both were so good we devoured them. Would definitely return.

Fantastic and consistent service from the host station to the bar and dining area. We had lunch (the fish tacos and lamb burger were both amazing) one day and then went back for Thanksgiving dinner - perfect. Our favorite spot on the island!

We all ordered the mahi mahi for the main course. The fish was fine. Unfortunately my rice tasted like a salt lick - the rice with the other plates was fine. Strange. It wasn't worth my effort to send it back. Uncomfortable chairs.
