We looked forwards to the meal after our last meal there back in 2010, instead we were very disappointed. The Grilled Fresh Mahi Mahi with risotto was a bland plate as was the he Spice Fried Calamari appetizer. The Tuna Tartar flavor was overpowered by the seasoning. The Crab Stuffed Shrimp came with just five shrimps and the chipotle mashed... More

I had the Scallops, and my husband had a steak and shrimp. VERY GOOD. Nice Atmosphere, and good location to shops if you want to shop before or after. Also in the same Mongoose shopping area is a great ice cream shop on the end.

A really nice dinner and wonderful service. In the Mongoose junction shops area, so the spot has a beautiful feel to it. Great Caribbean music playing live while you just take it all in. And then you can shop before or after too....

The Food, service and venue is top notch. Ate there twice on my vacation. From the first moment you enter you are put in the most relaxing mood. The set up is so very tropical and relaxing. The food is superb and the service was outstanding.

My husband and I had been craving seafood and this was the place. I had lobster pasta and my husband had seared tuna, both prepared to perfection. Service was exceptional as well.

The Ocean Grill is always our first stop for lunch in St. John. It's located in the nicest shopping area in Cruz Bay, and it sits back into a lovely green grotto. Ask to sit in the gazebo, and you'll have the best seat in the house. The food is delicious. If you're extra hungry, start with the calamari. For... More

Was here with 2 friends in June for dinner. It never disappoints. The specials are always something special and the regular menu is very good. Desserts are a must. I had the lobster tail and ravioli. It was very good.

Make a reservation to eat here when in St. John, as it has great food, service and is an easy place to get to. In the Mongoose Junction shopping mall, there is usually music being played in the restaurant and there's a bar to support your need for an island drink if you have to wait for a table.
