Can't wait to return

My wife and I had never eaten here before, but looked at the menu while out shopping earlier in the day. We were told there would be a steel drum player later that evening so we decided this place was where we were to have our anniversary dinner. And we couldn't have made a better choice.

The Ocean Grill at Mongoose Junction has delicious food at both lunch and dinner. The fish tostadas, the calamari, the tower of fried eggplant, and the Front Porch Lemonade are my favorite selections at lunch time. The potato crusted mahi mahi is truly exceptional, as was my husbands tuna for dinner. The restaurant has great ambiance, and the wait staff... More

This restaurant is just fabulous. My husband and I always like to hit a different restaurant every evening while on vacation. This place was the exception. We ended up there the first night simply due to dumb luck as there was no parking anywhere in town so we figured maybe we would find a place in Mongoose Junction just to... More

I ordered the mahi-mahi but didn't want the sides it came with. They changed out the sides for me, no problem at all. My husband ordered the scallops which were very delicious. We shared a cold bottle of chardonnay and then had a slice of the chocolate torte for dessert. That was the best chocolate torte I've enjoyed in a... More

No, it doesn't have a view but the seafood is wonderful. I had potatoe crusted mahi mahi. This was one of the best meals here on our trip. The chicken had by my husband was just ok. If you like fish, go fo rthe mahi!!

Four of us when here for dinner and all agreed that we were glad we did. We had a "One-Man" Stell drum player (although he can them steel pans). We all ordered a different meal and we all felt we ordered the best choice. Great service, food and drinks were spot on and of course good location. Go!

I am giving this a 4 rating mainly due to the location and setting of the restaurant at Mongoose Junction which is a very nice modern facility. It is more contemporary than the shops and eateries in the older part of town. It was a good change of pace from the old island charm and felt more like a resort... More
