“Very Disappointed!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

The food was disappointing at best! The waitress made suggestions according to what was on special. Basically all her recommendations were marginal, at best. The bartender and waitress highly recommended a particular bar drink that turned out to be not so tasty for a whopping $9 per drink. We got a very small glass and lots of ice. Stay away from this place! You will get better value and tastier food/drink elsewhere.

“Drinks are so good, Kathy was great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Great flavors, went for lunch and it was second to none. Returned a few days later for a few more drinks made by Kathy and some awesome CoCo shrimp!

“Loved the atmosphere, view & meal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Stopped in here for lunch. What a find! Fabulous view, good service and a terrific meal. Just a little strange when you ask for a glass of water you are given a look & brought a bottle of water and charged. Not sure what's up with the water issue here. Great little store nearby too.

“Surprisingly good vegetarian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

The special of the day included some crazy interesting quasi-indian dish that was pretty good and hit the spot for us -- there isn't Indian food in St. John, so it was nice to eat something different.

Service was a bit slow, but they were VERY busy. Location and view were great, too.

This restaurant has it all: Friendly service, a great view of the bay, and outstanding food. It is kid-friendly. too. Highly recommended! Don't leave Coral Bay without eating here.
