The Beach Bar is a must stop when in St. John in our opinion. We stayed right up the street from there and it was so convenient to walk down there in the evenings for a drink and we also had dinner there twice during...our stay in St. John. Everything we got was so good! We did shrimp tacos with the chips and salsa our first night and both loved them. The next time we had chicken and fried and I had the tuna bites which were perfectly seasoned nice size pieces of tuna. Aside from the food the waitress.waiters bartenders were all extremely friendly and welcoming to us each time! Beach Bar was probably our favorite spot since we are more casual people.More

The Beach Bar is great for a quick casual lunch. There are so many fantastic dining options on the island, this wouldn’t be my first choice. That being said, for what it is (on the beach bar) no complaints.

We were looking for a new experience and came across the beach bar. there is plenty of indoor seating with beach views, but the beach lounges make the experience much more pleasant. There is some enchantment in seating barefoot in a summer evening and drinking...your favorite drink under the skylight and sea breeze.More

Located near the ferry docks, in the heart of Cruz Bay, this is the quintessential beach bar! The bars, stools and tables, all open air, face the water. The food is freshly prepared, the drinks are well mixed, and the bartenders make the environment welcoming...and fun. They’re known for their Painkillers and Bushwhackers, but the beer selection is good too. Try their spin on a classic Cubano, enjoy the Painkiller with a floater, or a St. John’s Tropical Mango Pale Ale. Mingle with the locals during happy hour, 3-7 pm, or order a cocktail at the bar for take away, sit in one of the beach chairs in the sand, and settle in for the sunset. We couldn’t ask for anything more.More

Great location, great happy hour deals and the bartenders are happy to create a chocolate banana colada for your son. Nice local vibe, definitely worth stopping in.

We avoided this place for several years thinking it would be low quality bar food. We were pleasantly surprised when we gave it a try to find out we were totally wrong. My entire family had really great meals and we enjoyed our ocean front...view. I had the tuna bites, my daughter had the grilled mahi and my son and husband had the burger. All of it was well prepared and tasty. Will be coming back here for sure! Thanks Beach BarMore
