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.

Stopped here after dinner. Friendly service and good atmosphere. The drinks were well priced & they had good live music... Don't think I've ever heard a reggae rendition of NOFX before lol. Come here for a vibrant atmosphere and good cocktails.

A place to go if you want to hit a beach bar but not the place to go if you want good food. Food was ok.....not bad but not great. We had Turkey Reuben and a beach burger. The location is really good on the beach in Cruz Bay. You can hang out and watch boats come and go and... More

This place is immediately to your left after you get off the ferry, walk down the beach, get amazing food and great drinks, worth waiting. Order food at the bar and they bring it to you, takes a while but really is worth it.

We have been visiting St. John for years with our family. We always stop at the Beach Bar - great bar food and a great ambiance. Best seats on the island for great sunset and people watching. Also tables on the beach and great and entertaining beach bands playing as well.

We have been to The Beach Bar on several occasions. The service has always be outstanding, the view is amazing of the bay at sunset, and the Happy Hour is SUPER low pricing. If you are visiting bars in the Cruz Bay area, you certainly should add this one to the list.
