We loved coming here for happy hour. Sitting at the bar is so much fun and the view is beautiful. They have a daily happy hour with drink specials and tacos/slider specials. Very good and a nice crowd.

We stopped here because my husband's cousin was living on St. John. We ate and drank all evening. The view was fantastic, and we left stuffed! We had so much food, but the conch fritters were good and memorable. Definitely try the fried key lime pie! The staff was friendly and service, despite being busy, was great!

Great location, but was poorly un-prepared for a large group that we had. Food was horrible. I ordered Lobster Bisque and did not see any lobster. I was told that they puree their lobster...........really?

I hate saying anything negative about this place because our waitress was sweet and the person who showed up to our table was friendly and accommodating, but the food and the drinks were really lackluster. Maybe it was because it was almost the off season, but I would not go back for the food...maybe for the drinks. The view on... More

We stopped here for lunch after a day at the beach and before catching the next ferry back to St Thomas. Since it was a late lunch, the restaurant was not busy and we had an opportunity to get to know Matty. Great stories back and forth, great rum drinks, and great food. We actually missed one ferry back to... More

We had our wedding reception here on 5/17/2014, and had an incredible time. The food was perfect. The view and decor were amazing. And the service was absolutely awesome. All of our guests were raving about it. We just can't say enough good things about Spyglass. We always come for the conch fritters and cocktails and stay for the amazing... More

Went to spy glass about 2 months ago while in St. John. We ended up finding it after getting off of the ferry and going for happy hour. After going the first evening, we went three more times. Great happy hour prices. Eric, our server was fantastic as well as Eric the bartender. This was by far the best service... More

We stopped here after a day of snorkeling. It was perfect. Had Happy Hour rum punches (quite a selection to choose from) and the fish tacos. Compared to many other places we ate while in the islands, Spyglass had very reasonable prices. We ordered a second round of the fish tacos! Couldn't beat the view. Service was fast. Definitely will... More
