Hubby had the Mahi sandwich and I had fish tostadas. Hard to find gluten free on the islands. Did not have dessert but server said all are to die for since owner is a pastry chef. Only reason it's not a five star is due to no air conditioning. Food was outstanding!

Had the quiche which was just ok, homemade potato salad was better. People rave about their deserts but we had the key lime pie and the black and white cheesecake. Nothing to rave about.

Stopped in one night for dinner after shopping. Enjoyed happy hour margaritas and beer. We started with the spring rolls and crab cakes, then had the blackened shrimp Caesar salad and ribeye with garlic mashed potatoes! All very good! Great service! Nice atmosphere!

Located in Mongoose Junction shopping mall we were surprised to find such a refined seafood restaurant on the island. Their lunch menu had a variety of interesting seafood dishes.

The Ocean Grill in Mongoose Junction provides good service paired with wonderful food. We also had the fortune of hearing the lovely Lauren sing the second night we were there. They make great cocktails and the atmosphere (outdoors, but covered) with exposed stonework and wood is quite lovely. Worth a stop if you're in Cruz Bay, for sure.

Had dinner on the patio. The first night was so good that we went back two days later. Service and food was really good and the atmosphere was perfect. Highly encourage you to go!

Very cool place to sit down and have a drink or some food. This is a fun area of town to hang out in.

We had a great dinner at Ocean Grill while staying in St.John. Since we went during the slow season the restaurant was very empty but the ambience was great as was the food! Would recommend if you're in the Mongoose Junction area of St. John! 🍽
