“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

My wife and I had lunch after wandering around town and mongoose junction. We had beef tacos and prime rib sandwich special with au jus on side. Very happy and surprised how good the food was. Drinks where great also although small. I expect to eat there again on our next usvi trip!

“Nice place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

After a day of swimming and snorkeling at Trunk Bay, we took advantage of the showers at Trunk Bay and dressed and had a taxi drop us at Mongoose Junction for a little shopping. Stores were pricey and close early so we had dinner at the lovely outdoor restaurant Ocean Grill. Limited menu but we all found something we liked and the service was good too. Plus is that it was only a 1 minute safe walk to the ferry from there so we didn't have to take another cab.

“very good dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Very nice outdoor restaurant. The menu was not that big but what we had was great, steak and chicken. The deserts were also very good and homemade, we had the vanilla cheesecake. The restaurant is also very reasonably priced.

“Great setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed a nice evening out. My husband had blackened mahi and I had the salmon. Both were good. We would definitely return.

“Calorie-rich offerings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Our entrees were well prepared, but I was surprised to see how calorie laden most of the offerings were, given the hot humid temperatures here. The restaurant is outdoors but within Mongoose Junction shopping area, so any breezes come from fans, rather than from off the ocean. I asked for, and received, a table near the floor-level fans so I was comfortable from a temperature point of view. The seats were not comfortable at all with their backs so far sloped, however. They would have been better on a porch near an end table, rather than for table seating. Our server was pleasant, but not all that pleased when we declined wine and elected to share an appetizer and dessert.
