“Bill's 50th Birthday Celebration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We live on St. John and my husbands 50th Birthday was coming up. I invited family from Michigan to come down and surprise him for his birthday. We have four grown children who also live here and a lot of wonderful friends. Where to go with 30 people for food and drinks? Sun Dog Cafe & Gecko Gazebo Bar of course, located in Mongoose Junction. Michiael and his staff created a wonderful evening for all. Crab cakes, Fish Taco's, Beef Sliders and Margarita Pizza. The food was delicious. To top it all off, it was a Wednesday evening which is open Mic night at Sun Dog which meant we also had great entertainment for our celebration. My husband said it was the best Birthday celebration ever. Thank you Michael and staff!!!!!

“Great Lunch spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

In the middle of Mongoose Junction it is a nice and convenient place to grab a bite. Foods good, but portions aren't always big enough to fill.

“Always nice at Sun Dog”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Good food, nice outdoor setting in Mongoose Junction, and kid friendly. What's not to like? Don't go too late or they run out of the fish special...

“Grouper Tacos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

This Cafe is situated within the Mongoose Junction buildings and shops - open air, only about 5 tables. Our 2 teenage daughters enjoyed virgin daquiris (Mango) that they said were the best they ever had while us parents dropped Spicy Bloody Mary's that were excellent! All of our meals were awesome - Grouper Tacos were in the top 5 I have ever eaten and I'm a Fish Taco snob. Jerk chicken and Chicken BLT Wraps rounded out the other wonderful lunches. Dont miss this great cafe.
