We brought them some fish to cook. The handled everything. The finished product was excellent. The chopped blue cheese salad was excellent. I was very impressed with the food!

We ate here a few times for lunch when we were staying at Caneel Bay. The food came out fairly quickly and everyone raved about the sushi. I had a burger one day and a chicken sandwich the other, both were good. Servers arrived quickly and often and made sure our drinks and water were always filled.

Great view! We stopped here on our yacht trip for lunch during a family vacation with our 2 sons (17 and 21 yrs old). Our food was wonderful, fish of the day was sword fish--great choice. There were many added extras to this stop, like the Italian gelato (flown in from Italy), great gift shop, sugar mill and beach. This... More

We ordered the fish tacos, burgers and pizza. The tacos and burgers were decent and the pizza was bland but you can't beat the view if you sit outside. The drinks were very watered down and not worth the $11.

The property is a perfect setting, but the service is abysmal. No matter how many times we eat here, the servers either a)hate their job or b)try to be miserably hateful to patrons or c)both which is the usual response. I don't get it, but over the course of several years of visiting Caneel Bay, nothing changes. Good luck with... More

A large group of families took the ferry from st. Thomas after our kids finished a week of sailing in St. Thomas Regatta. We went upstairs and all sat on the balcony overlooking the beach. The kids snorkeled on the beach while we "watched" them and ordered appetizers. They are known for their sushi which is always fresh....just the sheer... More

You may not expect this but wide selection of excellent fresh sushi as well as standard resort fare such as burgers sandwiches etc. Three choices of where to sit: under roof adjacent to open kitchen with TV's, open area under umbrellas, and smaller second floor terrace under umbrellas (beautiful at sunset). Since rooms have no TVs at the resort, great... More

We are longtime visitors to Caneel Bay. The Beach Bar and Grill's menu has been overhauled. The sushi is still really good. There are plenty of choices among the burgers, pizzas, salads, tacos and sandwiches. The service is friendly and gracious. The only issue we had was occasional slowness from the kitchen at lunchtime (which distressed the servers) about pizzas... More
