great location as were staying right there. It was great for afternoon drinks on the beach. Our first night we arrived at 6 and they were closing but they gave us great tips on where to go in Red Hook wish they were open later

September 24, 2021 On our way back from Coral World Ocean Park we (4of us) stopped in for a late lunch. There is plenty of free close by parking. The two female bartenders were great! It was fairly busy and they took the time to...explain the order/pick up process, answer questions about food preparation, beverages, and joke/laugh with us. The bacon/cheese hotdogs are so tasty that we ended up order a total of 3 of them. The grilled tilapia fish tacos we very good and filling too. There is a full bar with lots of selections. The beach front ocean view is great!!More

Our family visited Sapphire Beach/St Thomas for the first time in June of 2021. We stayed for a week and frequented the Sapphire Beach Bar multiple times while on our trip. It was super convenient from our condo there. The drinks were great, the food...was delicious and the view was incredible. Definitely of my favorite places to go and can’t wait to come back and go again in the future!More

Love the burgers here! The staff is a bit rude and very slow, except for their friends but the prices are good value and it's right on the beach!

A year after first finding the Sapphire Beach Bar we returned to confirm the fish tacos were as good as we remembered. This is a must stop on Sapphire Beach. The hours are unusual so check before you go. All the seating is outdoors providing...great views of the beach.More

We have been coming to the beach bar since it first opened. This year we were able to come twice in January and March. During these trying times the bar is following COVID protocols and it is clearly labeled. Masks are required. The staff works...very hard to follow these protocols to keep everyone safe. The fish tacos and burgers are delicious. Frozen drinks are always refreshing. Ask for one of the “Nikki’s” to make you a special cocktail. You won’t be disappointed.More

We really enjoyed our experience here today. Please be aware that masks are strictly enforced before coming in. As we arrived we made a line where we order our food and drinks; then the drinks were immediately given to us and the food would come...out appropriately inside of a paper bag with your name on it so you’re never really in contact with anyone from the kitchen. We ordered the french fries and fish tacos. I must say that these were some of the best that we had on the island where the tacos were marinated with a spicy finish and then grilled served with a coleslaw and various vegetables. They were truly excellent and there were two well served tacos per order for $14. There was a nice place to sit and eat on the side of the bar And we were able to enjoy the views of the sea and beach right there. This is one of the prettiest beaches and sand in the island. The water is turquoise green with multiple shades of blue and it’s amazing just to see how it changes during the day. The sand is clean and the water is warm. It’s worth coming here just to be on the beach. Overall a great afternoon and a great experience. I wish they were open for dinner but unfortunately they close at 6 PM.More

PLEASE READ. After being a first responser in an incredibly tumultuous time, I thought I really knew how to acclimate and assimilate to all situations. I FOOLISHLY went swimming on sapphire beach after a long walk from the air bnb. After an "oh f***" moment...realizing my wallet didn't have my mask in it, I grabbed a napkin to hold over my face in the open air bar, where others stood maskless waiting on food. Please note, only one small sign requesting masks was posted which I didnt see until 15 minutes into this ORDEAL. "GET OUT" shouted the bar tender at me, as if i was oozing with disease. I asked if i could continue holding a napkin over my face, to which I was berated even more. Upon the humiliating exit, I was confronted by employee #2, stating "youve lived in this world for how long." Listen people, we all forget things, we all mess up. I came here to get a break from my high stress job. A job where life and death hang in the balance. I treat people with dignity and respect. Always. Period. Be better bartenders.More

Good Afternoon Morgansw, We're very disappointed to read this review. Unfortunately, it's become all-too-common for people to assume that they can come up to the bar maskless because we are an outside bar/restaurant. Per the current government madate, if someone is served without their mask...More

The fast food has a small menu but has been good quality. The bar is usually very busy and has an assortment of frozen drinks, mixed drinks like the painkiller, and beer. They are also observing COVID mask rules.More

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!
