We visited Ocean Grill restaurant after Eric the concierge at the Westin suggested it. It is located in the Mongoose Junction complex. The waitress told us the daily specials which included a chicken and shrimp soup that sounded delicious. My wife ordered crab stuffed shrimp and I had the grilled salmon as well as a bowl of the soup for... More

We were a group of 8 friends in St. John for a short Vacation. We went to Ocean Grill on the last night of the trip. Excellent meal for everyone. The were very accommodating to our large group. They had live music as well which was a nice surprise.

Food is fantastic! The service was ok but the male server we had was miserable. Never said thank you, never smiled once, acted as if we're disturbing him by coming there to eat lunch. There were four other tables with people at them at 2 pm. I'll still go back and make sure he is not my server! Again, FOOD... More

Great food and our waitress was sweetie pie. We ate in the little gazebo area and there weren't many people there. The Caesar salad was so great! Actual tiny pieces of anchovies in them

We stopped for dinner on a rare rainy day's end. The food was amazing! The fish was fresh and delicious. My husband had the tuna and I had the special. The fish was super fresh! Our 17 year old son raved about his chicken. The best part of the night was the dessert though. They are made fresh and amazing.... More

We stopped by during the day after the beach for some drinks, and checked out the menu, so decided to come another night for dinner. The dinners are excellent and we sat in the dining area one night, and then returned another night and sat at the bar, which we preferred. We had shrimp stuffed with crab that was a... More

Had lunch one day and liked it enough that we came back for dinner the next. Nice atmosphere, good food, and attentive service.

Beautiful ambience, BUT- middle aged, blonde waitress was downright RUDE! Banana smoothie was sour. Crab cakes tasted like they were pre-made from a box (frozen). Bread literally was frozen in the middle. Coconut shrimp was mediocre at best. Never again! I definitley do not recommend this restaurant.

We stopped here for lunch after taking the ferry over from St. Thomas. It's a short walk from the ferry, and located in a nice little shopping area on a hillside. The atmosphere is very nice, service was friendly, and the food was delicious. Don't miss this if you visit St. John!
