Overall the food we had was good. My wife and I both had the ribs which tasted good - the BBQ was very tasty and the portion size was more than adequate. We also had a Shrimp and Spring Roll appetizers which were OK - not the best we have had but no complaints as they were 1/2 off for... More

Sorry, I wasn't impressed. The food was average and I was appalled at what they charged for a high-ball-sized glass of tea. I wouldn't put it on my "must visit" list. I was expecting more in terms of quality of food for the price, not average.

Thanks for the review and wish you had enjoyed it more. For clarity, the price of an iced tea ($2.50) includes unlimited refills, so the size of the glass isn't related to the value. However, we can and will use a larger glass for the convenience of our guests. We are very sincere in our efforts and work diligently with... More

This restaurant is located near shopping and close to the harbor. It is beautifully appointed, has friendly staff and a decent happy hour. Loved the fish and chips and sliders, but would pass on the Jambalaya (bland). For those of you who have kids, they also offer family movies one night a week, which is kind of cool since there...

Great selection of Caribbean and creole dishes - I had the Jambalaya - which was very good. Just enough heat to make the Pain Killer go down that much easier. Highly recommend this trendy new place - if nothing else than for the blues they play!

We are frequent vacationers on St. John and were happy to try Virgin Fire this time. We usually check out Mongoose Junction, but missed this new option in April. The decor is pretty, more reminiscent of Paradiso than La Plancha was. We were delighted with the food! If you tire of island gourmet fare, try this place. We had a... More

Virgin Fire is upstairs in Mongoose Junction shops, overlooking the park. The service was great, friendly and very knowledgeable of the special on the menu as well as recommending what are the freshest and tastiest fish of the day. We started with one of their special flat breads which is more like a sauce less pizza. OUTSTANDING starter. The rest... More

Food was great and so were the drinks. Interesting atmosphere in that it's not island like. Nice break to eat in AC!

Read an earlier review titled Underwhelmed....I would agree most definitely. Food was not bad, but not great. My opinion is that the prices are too high for the food, service and experience. The service was not the best while there (early dinner) .... very slow and we are used to island time. Many items are seasoned with so much spice... More

I enjoyed the service and the food. The menu is limited but the decor is classy. I had the bone-in pork chop with Jerk seasoning and pineapple. I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was. I recommend dinner there if you go to St. John.

The cocktails were delicious, the appetizers were tasty, the entrees were phenomenal, the 2 guys playing live jazz music were on top of their game! Definitely must have the Himalayan Salt Block and the Ribs!!! (making my mouth water thinking about it!) No way we won't be back! The owners Mike and Barbie Barry even came and sat down with... More
