We were told this restaurant had consistently terrific food. The crab cake appetizer was very good, but very small. The salads were good. A bit surprising to have to pay for bread!! The seafood paella was a huge disappointment and completely lacked flavor. Our server was very very nice, however, and the atmosphere was lovely.

I don't have enough nice things to say about the staff at Ocean Grill! We had our wedding reception there on April 24th with 24 guests in attendance. We previously booked Waterfront Bistro but I had a gut instinct that I wouldn't be satisfied with them. That is when Patty took over the show and made me feel so at... More

This is a really chill, excellent restaurant. We had a waitress from Australia who was really attentive and sweet. Plus this place is in Mongoose Junction which is a very clean and unique upscale shopping center in Cruz Bay.

He has had maine lobster, but enjoyed the Caribbean Lobster more. More tasteful. We were served by a wonderful hostess named Diane, who has been on St. John quite a number of... More

We had a great lunch at Ocean Grill! The fish tostada's were particularly good and the kids loved the burgers! The atmosphere was great and despite it being a very hot day we were very comfortable! Worth a visit!

Really pretty atmosphere, outdoors. Would call this "fancier" for St. John but still very comfortable. Nice simple menu with the basics but done right.

We had lunch here on a recent day trip to St. John based on the recommendations of several shopkeepers in Mongoose Junction. I am SO glad that we did! The food was fresh and fabulous. I had the eggplant stack, my husband had the mahi mahi salad, and our kids had cheeseburgers from the kids menu. Note to parents ...... More

The atmosphere and service here are both outstanding. We had calamari as an appetizer and Mahi Mahi with a salad with mango vinaigrette for lunch. Everything was really perfect.

The menu was interesting--not your average burgers and fish that most places had on the island. The waiter was very good with recommendations. Very good meal and service. Would go back.

Based on reviews, etc we went there with another couple. I thought the food was very good, but not blown away. My husband was not impressed with the servers knowledge of wine and was disappointed with the bottle ordered (notwithstanding the hefty price on it). I liked it, but probably not enough for the wait and price.
