Walked here from the Charlotte Amalie ferry port since we had some time before our flight. We were able to leave our bags with a taxi service - so long as you use their taxi. Outstanding meal! Don't hesitate to try the perogi. Delicious! The Jerk Chicken was a big hit with our group. As was the coconut shrimp. Excellent... More

Location offers great views, menu is diverse (seafood, jerk chicken, steaks, polish specialties) and very well executed. Servers and owners were so friendly and inviting.

Our group went for dinner our first night on the island and found the staff very friendly and the menu varied with Polish, Island, and seafood options. Although I was visiting a Caribbean island, I tried the pierogies and they were very tasty. We went back again the following Friday for the jazz night and were very entertained. And the... More

Wow those ribs are fantastic. They cook them for 100 hrs. They truly fall off the bone. They have a spice to them that makes you want more. Really good. The owners are very nice and sit with you for a minute or so to see how you are. They have great stories. Friday night's they have music, open Mic... More

We decided to give this restaurant a try after spending the morning walking around Charlotte Amalie. When we arrived, there were three people at a table in the corner, and the rest of the restaurant was empty. Our waitress came to take our drinks order, and we both chose to just get water. When our water was brought to the... More

The staff are great people to talk with. The food is good and well priced. We didn't make it for the live entertainment, but we plan on being there the next time we're in town.
