We were staying over on St Thomas, but decided to take an evening sail over to St John for dinner. The Terrace was even better than advertised. Worth your time even if you have to hop on a boat to get there!

Wednesday night reservations. Always enjoyed the garlic soup but now not on the menu. Bring it back please. The asparagus souped was good. Salad and entree always delicious this night had the filet and the mahi-mahi.

This restaurant has excellent food and service. During our week on SJ we didn't eat at all the restaurants. But this was our fav.
