My wife and I ate here for dinner one evening and loved the place. We did not have dinner reservations and they were the only restaurant kind enough to take walk-ins. The food was the best we had while visiting St. John. I would highly recommend eating here if you're near Mongoose Junction.

Great food, good atmosphere. Wait staff is delightful. We had lunch and dinner at Ocean Grill, both visits had good food. No reservations needed for lunch, but I would call for dinner though. I will return here on our next visit to St. John!

Dining under the stars for dinner, or the awnings for lunch. it's always great. The staff remembers you, and treats you like old friends. On the night we went there was live music (Lauren & Bo, St Johns answer to the late Eva Cassidy, excellent)

Be sure to stop in on Monday or Friday to enjoy Rascio playing the steel pan. He's amazing and his music really adds to the experience of dining in a Caribbean open air restaurant. Plus, he's happy to have the kids come up and watch him perform. It's really is fantastic! This gem is tucked away in the back of... More

Food was delicious and atmosphere was great. We had two young kids with us, so finding a nice restaurant that could accommodate us was wonderful. One of our favorite dishes were the thai mussels. (When we finished the mussels, we threw our daughters pasta in the broth and then had an amazing pasta dish!) Also, the scallops were amazing and... More

Outdoor setting in Mongoose Junction; warm but fans all around. Mussels were savory. Others pleased with their entrees (Salmon, scallops)

This is a very good restaurant, it is tucked back a bit in Mongoose Junction...not alt hat bad to find. Service it top notch, very friendly and knowledgeable staff. The Lobster Ravioli is the best my wife and I have ever had. Prices are average for this type of restaurant, the night we ate there they had live steel drum... More

The food was excellent and the staff was great. I had mushroom and crab soup which was outstanding. The lobster and Mahi entrees were very good as well. It did get a little on the hot side so dress appropriately and remember you are basically sitting outside amongst the trees. Beautiful and delicious!!

My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary with a trip to St John last week. We stayed at Caneel Bay and ventured "off campus" for dinner most nights. Suggested by the hotel concierge, Ocean Grill did not disappoint. The open air setting is only match by a creative drink menu and surpassed by the food options. The lobster ravioli... More
