Living on the island, we don’t have lots of options for good food. The Terrace is always amazing! We went last night for our anniversary and could not have had a better experience! The staff is always so nice and right on point. The food...is just insane! The Lamb is a must have. If you are looking for a special night, this is the place !More

We visited the Terrace for a special vacation dinner. The food was amazing and the views extraordinary!!! The staff was extremely accommodating!! We can’t wait to return!

The Terrace came recommended from several people on the STJ fb group. I have to be honest, I was hesitant after seeing so many negative reviews about the staff being unfriendly. After going last night, I'm not sure they're talking about the same staff we...had last night... The hostess and our waitress were great, the food was fantastic - we've been on STJ for 7 days now and this was our best meal yet (we've been to High Tide, Greengo's, Longboard, Dave & Jerry's) -- they had 2 entree specials, 2 of us had the Wahoo special and it was delish! One had the tuna dinner and the other had the scallops - everyone enjoyed. We ordered apps, entrees and dessert, everything was FANTASTIC. I highly recommend reading past the negative reviews and definitely go!More

My husband and I had our last dinner out here. We came for happy hour and sunset and were able to gnosh on some happy hour deals. The wine and appetizers were good and we were pleased. The dinner was delicious and we were very...happy with it overall. I'd say the only disappointment is that there is a two hour window to dine due to COVID and limited seating capacity- while I respect this, it makes you feel rushed when they announce that the second you sit down.More

With few places to eat on St. John it was suggested we try the terrace restaurant. it seemed nice online so we decided to give it a try. What a mistake. While the food was ok the staff and i later found out owner was...incredibly rude. One of our meals was not prepared properly and the wait person called the owner who actually argued that we should be happy with it. He even said if we didn't like it there are other places for us to eat. We were aghast. We were polite and this is what we had to endure. True there aren't many nice places to eat on St. John but most are significantly a better experience than this one.More

I have been working in the restaurant business for 35 years. I have been coming to St. John for 25 years. So, I’m picky (discerning?) and have some experience with restaurants here and in general. Food was delicious. Absolutely on point. And the service was...equally great, from our phone reservation process, to the server and back staff. 5 stars front to back, full stop.More

Consistency is what matters. The meal was not prepared as ordered and part of it was terrible. Worse than that was the attitude of the staff and even more unexpectedly the owner! Given the prices you would expect at least courtesy when a problem is...identified - not attitude. Perhaps they think they don't need more business. Well with the product falling and the rude treatment of guests that will certainly change in the future.More

We loved the food here! Make sure to make a reservation a day ahead of time as they fill up quickly! If you make it for happy hour get the cab dip its awesome! We both ordered the Filet Mignon and it was one of...the best steaks we have had!More

We went, my family and I, after our first full day on St. John's. We really enjoyed our experience. It was my two older teen sons, my tween daughter and my wife and myself. Of dinners were excellent. The butter poached lobster was good but...not the best thing on the menu. Even the mac and cheese was excellent. Dessert is a must. They have great signature cocktails to try besides the ubiquitous pain killer.More

We always have dinner at least one night at the Terrace while visiting! The food is delicious with a killer view of Cruz Bay! Highly recommend!

I don’t believe there is a children’s menu. I would call and ask if something simple could be prepared. This is the finest dining remaining on the island. I will be having Christmas dinner there with three of my young... More

Sorry, I don't eat oysters, but I'm guessing that's not a good deal!! We found better dining at that price point elsewhere on island. Service was excellent though.
