Great drinks, pricey but good food

We all enjoyed our drinks and dinner at the outside seating - cannot beat the restaurant location. Drinks were excellent, food was good - everything is expensive, but that's St. John!

This is one of our favorite spots to eat on the island! The staff was falling over themselves to be friendly! They made sure we had everything we needed and even took the time to show my kids a bright green baby iguana, which is apparently a rare sight. The food was incredibly good and the view of the sunset... More

Excellent for lunch or dinner. Caters mainly to Caneel guests but other island visitors are welcome, its just a short walk from the parking lot but well worth it. If you go for dinner the terrace overlooking the beach is delightful.The menu is, half fast food and half sushi. So you can get burgers, sandwiches, fish and chips and salads... More

Being a guest of the resort you cannot avoid paying your tax: dinner here where the food list is very long, too long to be credible. And in fact food is mediocre, service would get zero gratuity in Europe, and check is 'spicy' Overpriced, keep out if possible.

Spent the day at Honeymoon and we walked over here on July 15th, 2015 for lunch. Sushi was good - volcano my fave but the family liked the spicy tuna best. The veggie Harvest roll was also excellent. The lobster one, forgot the name, was just ok. Nice place with good service.

My husband and I visited Caneel for lunch and a day at the beach today. We had lunch at the Caneel Beach Bar & Grill and I just want to say that our server, Agnus, really went above and beyond. She took the time to chat with us and refilled our water frequently. Additionally she asked if we had driven... More

Well, I wasn't sure about this because most places the beach grill is little more than hotdogs and beer. BUT this restaurant is the real deal. GREAT food. the Quesadillas and salads were delish.

Staying first time at Caneel and have had lunch and dinner here and have really enjoyed all. Service has consistently been good with no attitudes or problems. We have encountered quite a few rude, demanding customers with no courtesy or manners that have treated the staff like dirt and have found you get what you give in terms of respect.... More
