Ocean Grill is excellent for lunch, dinner or appetizers and, of course, frosty drinks. Over the years, we have often stopped at Ocean Grill while shopping at Mongoose Junction. Usually we enjoy a nice lunch but once we had dinner with live music that added to the enjoyment. The food has always been good and the service efficient and friendly.... More

We had heard great things about this restaurant but hit it on a night when all of our party were dissatisfied with the quality of the meal and the service. Someone who left right before us said it was amazing, so you just don't know.

We ate here our second night in St. John and my husband and I absolutely loved it. The lobster my husband ordered melted in your mouth and the skirt steak I ordered was great. Must try the home made ice cream for desert its the best I ever had. The décor is beautiful and the service is great. Very friendly... More

Was worried that I wouldn't like the food. Come to find out it was very tasty. Service was great. Prices were the same as most of the other places on St. John.

We went for dessert and to listen to the music. We had the banana cake a few years ago and had obtained the recipe. It is now a family favorite. It is still amazing. The pastry chef is so talented and this restaurant should get more credit for being so good. Fun place to go. Nice servers and atmosphere. Even... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch after shopping in Mongoose Junction (beautiful center). Loved their great cocktails and creative menu. Beautiful open atmosphere too. Apparently one of the owners is also a pastry chef...the four of us shared a slice of the coconut pie and key lime pie for dessert. I can't get the coconut pie out of my mind.... More

Four of us had lunch here while shopping at Mongoose Junction. The setting was very relaxing. We enjoyed cocktails ( Bushwackers, Prosecco, Virgin Island Summer Ale). Our friend absolutely loved his layered seafood cocktail which was a ceviche with conch,shrimp, calamari and veggies. My husband and I had the pork tacos, delicious! Our friends enjoyed their Mediterranean chicken salad and... More

We've been coming to St. John for many years, and always try to make it to dinner here - there are just the right amount of menu selections, without the overhyping of odd combinations, and the food is consistantly delicious and reasonably priced, a great value for the money. I've even changed my 'Go-to" drink to the Ocean Grill Martini,... More

We stayed in St. Thomas for a week and went to St. John for the day and, after a several hours of snorkeling, stopped here for lunch. We had mahi sandwiches, tacos, fruity drinks. Everything was delicious, especially the blackened mahi sandwich. Just a perfect lunch.

We had a wonderful meal accompanied by live steel drum music. Cocktails and service were also great. Try the tuna, it's easily the best I've had! Reservations are recommended.
