The scallops were the most tender I've ever tasted! We had a lovely table by the rail to view the sunset.

My fish was awful, but they were very nice and took it off. My husband and kids enjoyed (not loved) their meal. Nice view!

Step up from the typical beach bar. Nice bar with a good wine selection and specialty drinks. Fresh seafood dishes as well as other selections

Family and I stopped in for a kicked back lunch. Loved the view, great food, great service. Best fish tacos I've had in a long time. Wife had the veggie burger and loved it. Decent prices for lunch too.

The best bacon I've ever had. They cut their own pork belly and it's truly amazing. If you're not hungry, just grab a cocktail and the bar and look out over the water.

Since I wasn't too hungry, I opted for a small Quinoa salad and Ratatouille appetizer for dinner. That with the two glasses of Pinot Noir, I was quite surprised at the bill - Kind of over the top. I've paid less for steak and lobster dinners! And since we were seated right outside of the kitchen - the patio was... More

A rail table will give you a beautiful sunset dinner. The food choices are solid and the menu does not disappoint. Expect a 100+ for a dinner for 2 but its worth it. The duck was really good and the chicken melted in my wife's mouth.

Lunch was ok-- burgers and fries mainly. Staff are nice. The view is ok, but not fantastic...you're on the beach but face the dock.

Waterfront Bist... S, General Manager at Waterfront Bistro, responded to this review

Hi Jake, You may be mistaken, we offer a vast selection of exotic burgers. As well, our view doesn't face the dock. Our view faces the open ocean harbor of cruz bay, there are countless sail boats that sway in the wind. We also can see St. thomas from our restaurant and the beautiful sunsets that hide behind the lovely... More
