This was the best food we've had in Cruz Bay of the 3 places we've been. The tuna was excellent and the shrimp curry was delicious. We all really loved this place, especially the kids.

Great food, good service, excellent location! This is always a favorite dinner spot when we are in St. John. It's casual and relaxing and a good spot to bring teens and kids.

I enjoyed our dinner at Banana deck. It's a fun spot, lots of stairs. We sat at the bar. Ordered delicious conch fritters to start. I had the Greek salad with blackened mahi on top... I was pleased but mahi seasoning was just a tad too salty for me. Seafood platter was alright but a little bland... May have just... More

We went their with our adult sons. I had chicken alfredo supposedly with shrimp. There was no chicken and I make better alfredo sauce from scratch myself. They need to come to St. Louis and eat at numerous Italian restaurants from high to low in price and they won't be disappointed. We went there for Italian, as we were saturated... More

Lots of choices for food. There was 4 of us, we had lobster, steak, chicken & pork. Everyone said their food was excellent. Prices were not totally outrageous.

What a great little spot. The fish was fresh and the drinks were on point. Couldn't ask for anything else.
