Went in there and never got waited on! Stood at the bar for awhile and no one ever came to help us. Plenty of employees walking around. Left and went to the bar next door. Joe's Rum Hut. Way better!

We enjoyed our evening, had a nice table with a view of the water and a lot of people watching. Liked it so much we back 3 days later. The hamburgers are delicious, with great fries.

We looked all over St. John and were surprised to see that not many places offered live music. We stumbled upon the Beach Bar after returning from dinner. The bar was pretty full, but the music was loud enough that we could listen from the beach. Go early for dinner and drinks and you'll have the best seat in the... More

Best location, best drinks, best place ever. We always stop here upon arrival and enjoy a painkiller, bushwhacker and dinner. Really great spot.

The Beach Bar is one of the first bars you come to after you get off the ferry and head right. If you get there soon enough, you can get a chair at the bar that turns and faces the beach. You can put your feet up on the low wall and relax. PROS: 1. Right on the beach and... More

Very comfortable beach bar with great bartenders. You'll find all types of guests at this bar - good spot for families, kids, couples. You'll just get the feeling you fit right in immediately after ordering your first drink!

My second trip to St. John and I returned to the Beach Bar. Such a great place for a good time. Everyone is friendly, live music gives it energy, and setting on beach is perfect. Can't wait until my next visit!

The Beach Bar is awesome. Really, just awesome. It's the perfect place to kick back and enjoy some great drinks (Happy Hour from 3pm to 7pm), good music (live most evenings from 9pm onward), good food (try the fish tacos - excellent!), and a stunning view of the Cruz Bay beach and harbour. TBB has some terrific bartenders who work... More

Fun dive place. It consists of a sizable bar with stools and a set of plastic chairs on the beach. The big advantage of the beach bar, is it location with a nice view of Cruz Bay and that it also has chairs right on the beach. Food is ok but not really a reason to visit. I had fish... More
