I stopped in for a drink to walk the beach with and found one of the best drinks on the islands! I'm not sure about the food, but it has a great view of the harbor and access to the beach. Drinks are served in plastic so you can take them to the water (trash cans are available on the... More

When you get to St. John get to the beach bar. Great food well priced, overlooks beautiful waters near all shopping and vendors. Drinks are awesome " the pain killer" is great. Always nice people and such a relaxed atmosphere.

Stopped here for lunch and was extremely pleased. I had the pork fresco tacos and my husband had the fish sandwich, which came with pasta salad. All the food was excellent!! Very friendly service and reasonable prices. Great place right on the beach, will definitely return!
