Not many places to eat in Caneel. No atmosphere unless you can get a table on the deck. Then you can enjoy the sunset and bay view. I enjoyed my lobster taco. My husband had pizza. Servers are unfriendly and slow. Did not enjoy seeing kitchen workers. They did have sushi which seemed very popular.

The sushi is amazing. So fresh. Other food not that great. Get the sushi it is worth it. It takes awhile but so delicious.

My husband and I had dinner here several nights during our Caneel Bay stay and enjoyed every meal. The Caribbean Gumbo was flavorful. The BBQ pork ribs were amazing and we also enjoyed the burgers. The live music on Friday night was especially enjoyable, as was dining on the terrace overlooking the harbor. Prices, all things considered, were OK.

Bar and Grill specializes in sushi and is the only restaurant you can buy sushi on St John. Most of the patrons are guests of the resort but visitors and locals alike are welcome to dine there. Although the prices for sushi and most everything else is expensive the sushi is excellent. Forego the edaname, it is not fresh but... More

We love going here for lunch after snorkeling at Honeymoon Beach. The food is always fantastic and the drinks are even better. You can come in directly off the beach and not have to worry about dressing up. Service is great too. Highly recommend.

The sushi rolls, although ridiculously priced at $25-30 a roll - were really really good. The italian sandwiches were yummy. Drinks were unique and delicious. But the bartender was just over the top rude. Debbie was a big downer. First she didn't want to walk to get us menus and were annoyed we wanted to eat at the bar. Most... More

We will definitely be back to eat here again before the week is out! Our party of 4 ordered some sushi rolls and 2 orders... More

This was one of our best and favorite meals during our trip! We stayed over in St. Thomas but wanted to visit Caneel Beach for the day. We ordered two Caneel Club turkey sandwich's with fries and they were delicious! The drinks were really good and the service was impeccable. We just wanted some good casual food while we relaxed...

This little bar and grill is very nice, especially for families but, it had TV's playing, with some real crap being shown!! I was disappointed as I didn't go to Caneel to be plugged in to the rest of the world! I cam to UNPLUG!!
