The Beach Bar at Cruz Bay on St. John is a great “Soggy Dollar” bar. You can actually anchor your boat and swim ashore and fit right in with the crowd. The bar will be a bit crowded, but that is because they mix some great island drinks and have a decent bar menu to go along with it. It... More

Perfect view of the bay, best Happy Hour, best BushWackers, and good bar food and appetizers. What more can you ask for?

Menu was bar food. We were in the mood for seafood. My son didn't feel well after the fish tacos. The Sunset view of Cruz Bay was the best thing!

I love this place. Great love music, ok food, friendly bartenders. It's right in the beach in Cruz Bay. I'm not sure I've ever been here and not had a blast.

What's not to love. This place is always great for happy hour in fact, we hardly ever made it back to the villa after the beach and you'll end up hanging here for sunset. Majority of the food is pretty good especially their burgers. They make a killer piña colada and people seem to head there for their painkillers. The... More

The Beach Bar is on the beach and offers great sunsets. There are no waiters so you have to go to the bar to order your food and the bartender brings it to your table. We had hamburgers and nachos and both were very good. Great mix of people, both local and tourists. Fun place to have a drink and... More

Very fun place to hang out, grab a drink or a bite to eat and watch the sun set. Highly recommend the tuna bites and the buffalo shrimp -- very fresh, not your average bar food. Ask for 'Mike from Boston' as your bartender -- super friendly!

The Beach Bar is near the ferry dock. Great food and good people. I love hanging out here. Mix of locals, visitors and family pets including Marley the pig. Well, you'll find him and his owner usually walking the beach. The last time I stopped by was off season and they still had stuff going on. The food is always... More

This place is the Island. Vacationers and locals, all having good fun along with good food and drinks. Great spot of the Cruz Bay beach, lovely sunsets and simple views.
