“Delightful Gourmet Dining in a Beautiful Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

This was our second time staying at this wonderful hotel, and we ate dinner here every day they were open (closed on Sunday and Monday). Great food, drinks, atmosphere, and people. Local, fresh fish every day always served in a special way. Live lobsters kept in the ocean until you order them. Some other dinners we had were rack of lamb, lobster ravioli, cheese plate with fruit and olive tapinades, risotto, wahoo sashimi, and various preparations of mahi, all of them perfect with wonderful sauces and sides. Don't miss this if you're in the area.

“Location and Lobster!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We had dinner at Waves while visiting STX and what a wonderful night it was! Opening air dining with incredible views and so close to the ocean we could feel the salt spray. Walked down to the grotto and chose our live lobsters...doesn't get any fresher than that. Great martinis, excellent service and excellent food. A bit pricey but well worth it. Was a very pleasurable evening and highly recommended!

“The Bugs at Cane Bay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We lacked reservations for a special occasion, which may have impacted our being ignored longer than usual. While waiting to be acknowledged, we swapped tables once in an attempt to avoid scores of flying insects attracted by the lights. It is rare for us to leave restaurants, especially since the food is highly rated, but we just couldn't ignore the bugs. Since the staff seemed helpless to correct scenario, we remember it by the title name.

“Perfect atmosphere for our anniversary celebration!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We travelled to St. Croix to celebrate our 12 year wedding anniversary. We were married on the island and hadn't yet returned, so thought this was the year. We were looking for a special place to dine and we sure found it. The Waves could not be in a better spot. They set us a table right down next to the water, you could hear and see the waves crashing in and see the little pool where they keep the lobster trap. The server, who I think was also an owner, was wonderful. They brought us champagne and put flowers on the table for us. We had a cheese plate and the chowder for appetizers and both were very tasty. They serve the cheese plate with homemade crackers and duck pate, both of which were delicious. For the main course, we both tried the locally caught mahi mahi, which was wonderful. We were far too full for dessert, but I'm sure it was as good as everything else.

“Romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Wow! How romantic is The Waves at Cane Bay. We ate there 3 times. They have fresh daily lobster you pick out of what they just caught. The Kingfish is excellent. There Sunday brunch is great too. Matt (server) is GREAT. He is very knowledgeable about the restaurant and the food. He told us about what to do and where to go on the island. Thank you Matt!
