Stayed at the resort next door and decided to stick around the beach one day vs. heading to St. John or exploring other parts of St. Thomas. Tried this place for lunch and drinks, and we were not disappointed. The grilled chicken sandwich with bacon...was absolutely delicious. Ordered two painkillers each, and they were also very good -- not too strong, but strong enough. Service was fine. No complaints. Was able to find seating at the bar since the tables under the pavilion were full. They could certainly add more, but I guess most people take their food back to their chairs on the beach. Beach was kind of crowded, but not too crazy (mid-January). Again, we had chairs in front of our condo at the resort, so we weren't bothered by the crowds in front of the restaurant. Totally loved the music -- mix of 80s, 90s, 00s. Anyway, if we stayed at the resort again, we would definitely take advantage of this place for lunch and drinks!More

On our way to dinner had to stop by for one of their cocktails. Bartenders get very busy so make sure they see you.

Saphirre is a beautiful beach and the bar offers a cool hangout spot! The service could sometimes be a little slow/unfriendly, but overall, a good time!

This place is steps from the beach. Try the guava freeze for a nice treat. Great atmosphere. Sit on the beach overlooking the most beautiful water.

Very busy and a real Carribean bar! The bartenders are friendly! They have different entertainment during the week and on weekends there is music.

The bar area was inviting, with killer views and great music. Lots of furniture where you can lounge and have a drink if you don't want to sit at the bar itself. I had dinner and drinks here 3 evenings in a row. Most of...the bartenders (especially Josh) were very nice to me. Another male bartender was so rude to me every day, while flirting with younger bikini-clad women. I am middle-aged and was traveling alone for work and would have appreciated some courtesy/kindness while I dined. One night after I closed my dinner tab, I decided to order one more drink and he curtly told me I can't because there's a $15 minimum. The next day he closed my tab before I even asked him to, so again I could not get another drink (I was not intoxicated either). Also, I asked for a glass of water while I was eating dinner and he suggested I go to the bar in the next door restaurant because they have better water. I am sorry, but who is going to leave their food and drink unattended and walk to go fetch a water from another place? Not safe to do at all, nor convenient. Most bartenders I encounter are so friendly when I am alone and I tip them well. He was just so rude and made me feel unwelcome. Other than that, I did like the bar food and ambiance. The onion rings were the best. This is also a good place to wait for your flight as you can keep your bag with you, enjoy lunch, use the restrooms and grab a taxi right there. I believe the even have WiFi as I saw a couple people using their laptops.More

Mediocre food at best and very overpriced. Located on sapphire beach, extremely windy beach, water is always choppy and lots of coral rock to tear your feet up, don’t recommend this beach without water shoes very sharp rocks everywhere. If you like to wind surf...or anything involving wind this is a great place, wind surf and then get some overpriced mediocre food. You will definitely lose weight on your trip if you stay on sapphire beach. Food is bad and the choppy water and wind will give you a good workout.More

Great food! I had the fish tacos one visit, and a hot dog the next visit. Husband had a burger both times. The food is great, and the drinks are, too! A really cute spot.

The location can't be beat. The staff is friendly. The menu supports just about any dietary issues. Live enterntainment is provided on some nights - but they will clear portion of the seatring to accomodate, so plan accordingly.

We randomly visited this place as we wanted to go to the beach. A good random choice as our drinks and sandwiches were great. Probably the best grilled cheese sandwich I've ever eaten!

As if this beach needs another excuse to visit, do not miss out on these fish tacos. Simple, but spectacular, to say the least.

This bar is exactly where they drop off cruise passengers. Chairs are set up on the beach, directly in front of the bar, specifically for cruise passengers. They do have a variety of cocktails and beers available.

Hi Gregory, Many of the taxis come to Sapphire Beach from the cruise ship dock, so you can just ask for one that's coming our way! We hope to have you join us soon!
