We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience here! Aaron was our server and not only was he well diversed in his knowledge of the menu, but easily paired wine to go with our food selections. The dessert was to die for. I would go back anytime of the day for the cheesecake! The setting is nice with it being outdoors and... More

We filled an entire upstairs room with our large group here. Service was a bit sporadic, I think because the restaurant got really crowded after us, plus going up and down stairs takes more time for the wait staff. The food was really tasty, and so was the dessert. They have a pastry chef on staff. The chocolate dessert that... More

Overall, we had a good dinner and everyone in our family was happy with their dinner, but I thought the menu selection was not very good. I would recommend though if you are eating out more than a couple of times.

The only reason this place does not receive the lowest rating is because the drinks are good and the bartender friendly. However, I do not understand why this place is so highly rated. My family of four went tonight. Our waiter was unattentive and seemed irritated when we asked for water. We ordered two burgers, a salad, and a cornish... More

This restaurant was one we had never visited in our 10 years of going to St. John. The tuna was out of this world. My wife had Mahi that was great as well. They have a nice kids menu which was helpful. The one downside is they charge for bread which in my opinion should be part of the meal.... More

This is a great place to meet family after a full afternoon of shopping. We didn't shop all afternoon, but we did gather for some drinks before heading back to Caneel Bay where we stayed. Food is great too.

Our dinner was quite good although pricey. Mussels were outstanding. Too much breading on fried food.

We were hoping for a delicious meal and ended up with just ok. My mahi mahi was grilled, tasted ok, but it was less than 6 oz and cost way too much. What was worse was the beets and sweet potatoes that came with it. Sure, I should have looked closer at the menu, but I can't think of two... More

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.
