I can't say enough about the wonderful dinner experience we had at Ocean Grill. Located at beautiful Mongoose Junction, the open air environment is very inviting and relaxing. We were seated right away by the very polite maitre d'. I wish I could remember our server's name because she was friendly, efficient and professional in every way. She never hovered,... More

We visited the Ocean Grill on a Monday night at 5:00 so we more or less had the place to ourselves. The restaurant is located in the Mongoose Bay shopping area of Cruz Bay which is the upscale part of town. The seating is actually indoors, but there are few walls and the décor makes you feel like you are... More

We walked in without a reservation on a Thursday night. The restaurant is in a beautiful setting - o felt like I was in the middle of a garden. They had live music AND a kids menu and the adult food was fantastic, too. I had the ginger tuna (prepared rare, of course). It was perfection. Also enjoyed the Lime... More

The Ocean Grill has it all; great food, knowledgeable & professional service and nice ambiance. I started with the grilled calamari salad. A mound of fresh greens were covered in perfectly grilled calamari and dosed with the just right amount of light dressing. In retrospect I should have ordered another calamari salad as my main because it was so good.... More

We arrived for dinner early, were promptly seated. Since the hour was early, there were few patrons, our appetizer (crab stuffed shrimp), came quite soon. I then enjoyed the seafood bouillabaisse, while my partner has sesame seared tuna. Both very good. The dessert menu was fairly large. I had the blackberry/mango pie, my partner had a chocolate/banana/pecan spring roll with... More

Had a very good family meal with two teens. Everyone enjoyed, had good food, and liked the live entertainment. We'd definitely go again and really recommend Ocean Grill. My only gripe is small...the boullibase desperately needed a crouton...I've never seen it served without and was kinda bummed.
