We went here for a family dinner on 7/17. We had never been to Kendrick's previous location due to my dad being in a wheelchair and the inaccessibility. When we found out he had moved over to the Buccaneer, we had to try him out! We went as a group of 9. We were accommodated easily and taken in at... More

We had a great meal in this restaurant. The beet salad was lovely, the fish was great -- our party tried nearly everything on the menu, and everyone raved about their food. The menu is not huge but it's very good. Highly recommend you dine there while on the island. Few places offer this level of fine dining.

The food was delicious, the menu had something for everyone! A great place to spend a special evening or a place to bring your whole family! Service was nice and okay for the island.

While in St. Croix, we celebrated our wedding anniversary at Kendrick's. It was the same night as a Prom celebration in the lounge, and a wedding dinner at a nearby table in the Fine Dining section. My husband ordered the lamb and got a full rack or amazingly prepared chops, and they were nearly the best he has ever had.... More

The food here is creative and tasty. I ate dinner there 3 times while staying at the Buccaneer, and had a different entrée each time. I especially enjoyed the sweet potato ravioli with gorgonzola cream sauce (sigh!), but all meals were excellent. The lounge is really just an extension of the Terrace dining room. I did not see anyone turned... More

Kendrick's is even better in it's new location. The food and service are excellent. One of the best restaurants in St. Croix

While staying at the Buccaneer we ate at Kendricks and the adjoining Lounge. We preferred the Lounge as it is less formal i.e. no collared shirt required and menu is same. Staff is fairly attentive and it's a European styled dining vs. American rush dining so we enjoyed the beautiful night lights of Christiansted and lots of conversation while dining.

If you visit St Croix and don't try Kendrick's signature dish, mahi piccata, at the Buccaneer then you missed the best fish dish ever!
