Rock 'n roll and frozen Painkillers - YUM

This was a fun bar. The band was our age (60's) which was the only thing that was our age. This is a young crowd. If you don't mind rubbing elbows with your grandkids, then this is the place for you. The band was incredible and played

Good basic American Food. Could get a little loud but the bartenders are super human and food came out really fast. I would recommend it and would eat here again.

Great beach side bar, great food and drinks and a fantastic view at sunset, Combined with the local music and sitting on the beach we had a great time. Food was reasonable and tasted good. Decent value for St Johns. We would go back again

My group of four grabbed beers after dinner one night while on vacation. Great spot to enjoy local music. We grabbed a table in the sand and enjoyed the great vibes.

Locals and tourists alike for happy hour pain killers, on the beach. Live music some nights. Tuna as an app is great.

Great location to sit and have a couple drinks during happy hour. I had my first bushwacker here and was hooked on those for the rest of the trip. The crab dip was ok. Unfortunately our waitress was more interested in flirting with other customers for tips than refilling our drinks.

We have been traveling to the USVI for many years, first via bareboat sailboat charter and now by land accommodations. We stay on St. Thomas, but love the ferry ride from Red Hook to Cruz Bay. When disembarking from the ferry recently, I asked the policeman standing on the corner where he would go to eat lunch if he were... More

My husband and I travel to St. John frequently, and have been going to the Beach Bar since they opened. Aside from the fact that the location is perfect right on the beach in Cruz Bay, we have always enjoyed going to the Beach Bar because of the friendly staff. This time was different, and is why I am only... More

Stopped at this little gem. Incredible location and view. Somehow in all of our trips had never been here. Crab wontons were delicious as were fish tacos. Love that it's casual and open so it's great for families with a little one in tow.

We saw the Beach Bar while visiting Cruz Bay and returned later for an appetizer and drinks at the bar. I happened to be after sunset when we visited but we noticed earlier that the daytime water views were pleasant and interesting. The food and service when we visited were both excellent!
