Amazing Staff and location just oozes an easy going atmosphere. If you're not experiencing a great trip this place will turn it around. A MUST STOP!!! The Staff was knowledgeable and fun. Truly made you feel welcome and like a member of the family. I will be heading back as soon as I can. If you are in St. Thomas... More

We went here the first night and became regulars as soon as we walked in! Such a great atmosphere created by an amazing staff. Mike, Heather, Chris, Amanda, Ben, and Andrew made us feel right at home with their friendly service, great food and drinks! They were also very helpful with what to do, the best places to go on...

The staff here was so incredibly friendly and welcoming, we instantly considered this bar our "home bar". We visited every night before going back to the room. Bartenders, Mike, Heather and Amanda were so nice and personable. Chris, Andrew and Ben were incredible staff that we felt much love from too! We WILL be back to the island because of... More

These hungry, dusty travelers were ready to wetten their palates and fill their stomachs after the ferry ride over to St. John. We ordered drinks and meals which included A Painkiller - which lived up to it's name. The blackened shrimp was over seasoned - enough so that it was bothersome. The bar keep was very friendly and set the... More

This is probably the best beach bar we have experienced. The food is great (the tuna is our favourite). It gets busy, especially when there is live music but if you can get a seat at the bar it's worth it.

Went here the first night we got in. The view of Cruz bay is gorgeous. This beach bar does sit directly on the beach and does offer tables in the sand. First night I ordered the blackened mahi sandwich, which was very good! Husband ordered the ahi tuna sandwich that came with a wasabi mayo... Very tasty!! Second visit we... More

The Beach Bar is great hang out for locals and visitors looking for the local vibe. The menu is simple and everything is good. The Painkillers killed the pain and the Bushwackers were potent milkshakes. My wife and I had the blackened shrimp taco special the first night we were there and it was amazing. We came back a couple... More

Cheap drinks (for St. John), good view. Fun place to hang out with tourists, as well as a lot of locals. Only downside was no table service (at least when we were there). We wanted to order food, but left when we saw sign saying you had to request order at the bar.

We stopped at the Beach Bar for lunch and drinks. The Painkiller was excellent...just as good as The Soggy Dollars. Make sure to try the chicken wings and the rib eye steak sandwich. Both were excellent, as was the service!
