Like the waves that crash on our beaches, our islands are full of people that come and go. Like the boats that leave our docks filled with guests that want to stay, our gates wave goodbye to friends who want to remain for one more drink, one more bite of the best the ocean has to offer, or one more minute of closing their eyes and smelling the salt in the sea and listening to the caress of the ocean against the sand.

We know your time here is precious, everyone comes here to escape, to go on adventures with people they love the most. Here, we make it our vocation to help you experience the best of what the Virgin Islands has to offer. Our chefs have mastered both local and international cuisine, bartenders have figured out the best way to put spirit in our spirits, and all of our staff is happy to see you.

Honestly, we think there's no better backdrop to relax with friends or family, close that business deal, or even make the life-long commitment to the person you love the most.

We'll see you when the tide comes in.

Last stop before leaving on ferry

We all had a good lunch before catching the ferry to go home. Nice view and close to ferry. I liked my shrimp tacos and onion rings were good. Everyone else had hamburgers and they said they were good. Waiter was efficient and kept water and drinksfull.

The staff here is awesome. Food was great. You should grab a drink and something to eat here. We rolled off our plane and the ferry and needed the hospitality.

Good food, service was a bit off. We each ordered a different drink and shared. The bushwacker actually turned out to be my favorite for the week.

We stumbled upon this place the first morning we were in Cruz Bay and went back several times during our stay. The restaurant sits right on the water and the food is as good as the view. We started 3 days off with their American style breakfast (a couple eggs, bacon, tots, toast). Great service and a filling enough meal... More

This establishment came with many recommendations. But the food was definitely not the reason. One person ordered french fries and received pasta salad. the conch fritters were burned on the outside, but half raw on the inside. Remolaude sauce was used to cover the error and the sauce was actually tasty. Now the drinks were another story. The mango tango... More

Sorry to hear the food didn't quite impress, Cyndy and Byron. You should always expect our conch fritters to be cooked properly, so we would have been more than happy to fix that for you. Still, glad it was a different story when it came to our mango tango daiquiri! We hope the rest of your visit from New Jersey... More
