Wonderful food and atmosphere - menu options were wonderful as well as drink options - view of the bay and seeing other guests doing water-sports - birds trying to swoop in on your food can be an issue but the staff work hard to stop that.

On our travels to St. John, we always take one day making the rather long walk to Honeymoon Beach. We leave our chairs, etc., behind and walk back to Caneel Beach Bar and Grill for lunch. Always a nice break in the day, and always a delicious lunch with drinks. Our grown children remember their youthful times in St. John... More

However we were able to get beach services and we enjoyed the meals that came from the Beach Bar and Grill on the beach. Drinks are good but not very strong so the money really starts to add up.

We had a taxi take us to Caneel Bay Resort from the Westin ($6.00 per person). You cannot use the resort chairs here even if you eat and drink here. We had a drink in the bar area which has living room type seating. You can eat here as well, but we thought we would be more comfortable in the... More

Limited options but what they do serve is great. Try the Geisha and once you are fished out, the burger is very tasty.

We spent the day at Caneel Bay and ate lunch at the Beach Bar and Grill. The food was good, nothing extraordinary but just fine for a beach bar. The service, however, was not so great. Five of the six members of our party were done eating before the sixth received his meal. No one came over the apologize or... More

We had a lovely sushi dinner! The view is amazing and the food was delicious, but the excellent service is what made our night. Lodi was our waitress and she made our experience memorable. Not only was she prompt and courteous, she took the time to laugh, tell stories and offer a little bit of who she is. We will... More

The Caneel Beach Bar and Grill is a great place to stop if you just want to do a quick visit of the Caneel Bay resort. You can avoid the $20 parking if you stop and spend at least $20. The lunch menu had good options for about $15, both salads and sandwiches. Beautiful outdoor venue with good service and... More

The bartenders work really hard and do a good job here. I fell in love with a new drink the Lime D'Coco. Food was decent also.

Our innkeepers (Garden by the Sea) told us that the Caneel Beach bar was preparing sushi--and that it was GOOD! We didn't need to hear anymore. We went after a day at the beach--only to find that they stopped serving sushi at 3 pm, and wouldn't resume until 6 pm. Sniff--we had excellent sandwiches washed down with a few Virgin... More
