Had a grilled mahi sandwich and side salad - both were amazing! Also had a bushwacker, which was like a milkshake with rum in it - can't go wrong with that. Staff very friendly - gets crowded at mealtime. We ate out on the beach.

We ate at the Beach Bar our first night on St. John. Loved the ultimate Nachos with chicken. Everything was so fresh. Painkillers were our drink of choice. And the live music while eating at the tables on the beach put us right into an island frame of mind. We actually stopped here every evening to have a Painkiller and... More

Our captain Moose took our family of 11 including grandparents, parents, and five kids ranging in ages 9 to 13 years old to the beach bar and it was a huge hit with everyone. We ate right on the beach and the food and drinks were absolutely to die for. Fish tacos, painkillers, burritos, crab Rangoon, you name it, everything... More

Great food, reasonably priced. Perfect place to let the kids wade while waiting for lunch (or dinner). Super nice staff--- we loved it & went a few times. The coolest thing was seeing Zach Deputy live on Tuesday night!

This is another spot right on the beach at Cruz Bay. I love being able to sit on the beach watching the boats come in while enjoying a drink and some good food.

Hands down best BUSHWACKERS in the VI. My favorite views, drinks, bar food, and beach games. I end every STJ boat trip with a visit to The Beach Bar!

This is the place to go if you want a cheap drink and a great view. No frills, but good prices and location. We were with out two small kids so it was probably a mistake to go during the sunset, as it does tend to draw in the rowdy crowd. And not too clean either, but still enjoyed a... More
