Thankgiving

Best seafood and sauce I've ever had. Great service, even though they were packed we did not feel rushed.

Three words: It was ok... much better restaurants around. The food is decent but the prices are steep probably due to the restaurant being in the only mall on the isle... I wouldn't go back having better choices around.

This restaurant was locating in Mongoose Junction. My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful night here. Excellent food and excellent service. I recommend this one to anyone looking for a romantic atmosphere to get away.

We had two awesome meals at the Ocean Grill, dinner and lunch. Several menu selections as well as daily specials. You would be hardpressed to find fresher seafood on this tiny island. Fresh lemonade made continually. Great salads with or without meat or fish. Ceasar salad measured as the best ever, and Rick knows Ceasar salad! Nice setting, especially when... More

I had a great meal and great evening with my fiancee to celebrate my birthday in St John. Started with pineapple rumtini....yummy...then appetizers of house caesar salad with pear which was REALLY good, excellent spring rolls. I had the mahi mahi and my fiancé had the snapper. They were both excellent, but I think the snapper had better flavor. Dessert... More

Came in for lunch before work and had a delicious grilled mahi sandwich with grilled onions and just the right amount of aoli. Paired with a side salad it was great! For $15 this is a great deal on STJ!!

Seriously so fabulous in many ways. Much preferred night with steal drum player....ambience was great, service very well done, food spectacular. We had almond crusted red snapper and blackened Mahi mahi.....yumm. Started with housemade chorizo with goat cheese, then the best caesar salad (with pear and bacon) EVER. Wish we had this at home.

Jes & I really enjoyed every aspect of our evening. Our server Derek was very welcoming, friendly, attentive and helpful. For those who complained about $3 bucks for bread, keep in mind, you are on an island where all ingredients must be imported, so get over it. We had a bottle of wine ($40), back porch lemonade, pain killer, and... More

Terrific salads, smashing mango smoothies... But you can't leave this place before trying the peanut butter/chocolate pie.. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
