Enjoyed lunch today gazing out at the turquoise blue waters of Cruz Bay. We had the Tuna Down Now! (Delicious as a lunch or appetizer) the tempura fish tacos (yum) and the shrimp and chips. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The coconut mojitos were delicious. Friendly service and singing along to the 80's tunes added to the fun.

This place is just pure tee fun. If you want to see and talk to locals, then the Beach Bar is the spot. The drinks are really reasonable, which is why so many locals hang out there. The new owners have done a great job of cleaning it up. The food is also great, so don't think of the Beach... More

I swear they make the best bushwacker and painkiller - but love the staff-had a great chicken sandwich which had spinach artichoke dip on it - it was awesome!

Great little bar right on the beach. We were there on a Thursday night it was a little crowded. We had dinner and it was very good and was delivered hot. Great little shop to buy shirts and island goodies.

Our feet were in the water, the band playing in the background and rum drink in our hand. This place is a bit of a dive but has such a laid back, casual atmosphere it is hard to not fall in love. Drinks are good...trust your bartender and say "Make me something delicious!", put your feet in the water and... More

Friendly service, on the beach and good food. The sloppy Joes come with Mac & cheese and taco chips; a winning combo. The fish & chips and fish tacos were very good. Best of all, the beer is cold.

We had lunch here twice after picking up people in our party from the ferry. The drinks were good and we enjoyed the burgers, fish & chips, nachos, and the tuna salad special was delicious!
