Great spot to watch the sunset on the beach. The drink specials are great and this is a good spot to enjoy budget friendly bar food.

Great food & atmosphere. Looked like Buffet or Chesney would step out any minute and start playing. Just what an island bar should be.

We happened to stumble upon The Beach Bar while walking around Cruz Bay during our recent trip to St. John. We enjoyed a "pain killer' as well as a "dark and stormy" with a terrific view of the harbor. Cheeseburgers as well as the hot wings were quite tasty and adequately priced. All in all, we had a relaxing lunch... More

They do happy hour from 5-7, so grab a table and sit on down and watch the best show on earth. There are good mixed drinks and local brews (brewed in Maine, but hey). Staff are friendly and prices are cheap. We didn't eat here but food looked tasty enough. Usually we enjoyed a drink and went about our evening.

This was the first and last bar I saw on St John. Live music in the weekend, soccer games during the worldcub, friendly stuff and awesome owners Karina and her husband! A lot of great memories in this bar!

We had 6 in our party who got in late to the island and were tired from traveling. We decided on The Beach Bar because we wanted a simple, hassle free meal. My wife and I had been here several times and liked the casual atmosphere. A step up from bar fare but not pretentious like other restaurants in Cruz... More

Just came back from an amazing time in St. Johns and. We explored the entire Island, Hiking, Snorkeling, Sailing and everyday we wound up stopping by at our favorite local place: The World Famous "Beach Bar" in Cruz Bay. This place is a must do. The food is awesome! Crab Dip and Burgers and Tuna are amazing! They are the... More

good dinner on a friday night, but the service is mediocre. Perhaps they were busy / overwhelemed but it seemed like they were less concerned about dinner customers and more interested in the band that was coming on in an hr.

Back in St. John and The Beach Bar remains our favorite place on the island for a late lunch after the beach. Great specials of the day, the burger is great and the staff always friendly. Will continue to come back. CIAO
