We got a recommendation by people at our hotel, and we really enjoyed our meal! Also was great to sit on a breezy balcony.

We enjoyed a previous visit to the Banana Deck back in 2014, so we tried it again when we visited St. John in August 2016. Banana Deck features ribeye steaks with various specialty toppings. We were very disappointed to learn that the restaurant was entirely out of their steaks and several other items when we visited. 2 or 3 out... More

Went here for a casual dinner with the entire family (seven). Great location just off the sand at Cruz Bay and up a flight of stairs. The elevation helps with getting a good breeze so don't shy away. Had jerk shrimp salad that was delicious. My son had the jerk chicken salad and it was great as well. Ladies had... More

Banana Deck is a quiet unassuming little spot on the outskirts of St. John's downtown area. We had a party of six around sunset. The wait staff was quick and attentive. The noise level not too bad. They had TVs showing the Olympics. The food was delicious. The crab and shrimp egg rolls with wasabi mayo and soy were excellent.... More

A local suggested this restaurant to us... Quick service and average food, the conch fritters, blackened Mahi wrap, and rib-eye were very good. Nice for a fast lunch as many eateries are along the waterfront!

We went at 5pm and ate dinner (dinner starts at 5). We were the only ones there the whole time. Service was good and food tastes great. View from top deck was not direct onto Cruz bay but you can see the bay water and it was nice close to sunset. We had the Caribbean chicken and I thought it... More

Parking is a trial. But if you can get here, especially for lunch, the experience is lovely. The conch fritters are the best on the isle. Burgers and fish options are very good, and some kid friendly options too. We have always had pleasant servers.

As usual, we had a fantastic meal at our go-to place on St. John. They accommodated our party of six on a walk-in basis. We sat on the deck under the cooling fans and had the great view of Cruz Bay. Everybody enjoyed their homemade rum punch, the conch fritters, the shrimp and crab spring rolls as a warm up... More
