This trip was not as good as normal. Maybe just due to slow season but service was not great. Food was blah. Nothing Fantastic.

What's not to like. Across the street from our condo and happy hour 4-7. Really fun bar on the beach. Good food and good music.

After spending the day at the beaches on St John, we headed to The Beach Bar. Nice little bar on the beach, good food, and great "Painkillers."

We love the location of the beach bar. Great view, regular live music and good drinks. Hit or miss on the service, yesterday we had great service from a female bartender with glasses in the past we have had crap service from some male bartenders. She recommended the BBC and it was delicious, my husband loved the fish and chips.... More

Laidback beach front bar with good service and variety of island style drinks. A spot where locals and tourists mingle and enjoy some awesome live music in a personal setting just feet from the waterfront and beach. I lived on island for 6 months and loved this spot to catch up with coworkers and meet new friends!

Beautiful view of the bay. The food is like "bar food," which was still really good and light. We had the shrimp & chips and ahi tuna tacos. Both delicious and the drinks were good. The lime and coconut drink tastes just like a key lime pie! Good place for casual, relaxing and fun lunch/dinner or to just go and... More

We stopped by to have drinks and to watch the sunset. It was very romantic. The service was great. We enjoyed "Happy Hour". Try the "Painkiller" you will love it!
