Best tacos ever!! Fresh caught fish... I can eat a lot and these three tacos filled me up with no problem. They put large chunks of fresh fish in each taco. Very filling and well worth the price!

Went upstairs and had drinks at this bar and loved the decor. Kept looking around for Tom Hanks as Chuck Noland. Even "Wilson" sits behind the bar. The bartenders are very friendly. Fun place!

If you're visiting the Virgin Islands and miss this bar, you're missing the Virgin Islands. This is where it's at. Great deals on drinks, awesome food and the best staff! Super friendly and fun. Have you seen the size of this nacho plate?? And hit TVs? There are seriously like 30 in this bar. Say hi to Wilsun for me!

We visited Castaways twice during our recent visit to St. John. They have $2 painkillers and other great specials. Try the conch fritters, they were excellent! Staff and owner we very attentive. I highly recommend a stop at castaways if you are in Cruz bay.

Best pina colada I have EVER had! Lots of coconut and lots of rum. WOW. It was a little loud, very busy and full of young people. We had a drink before having dinner at a local restaurant. Yum.
