“Excellent place”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

We went here to eat and watch the fire dancers perform. (went on a Sunday) This place was hopping. Food/drinks were excellent. We ran into almost everyone that we've met before at different places. I guess this is the place to go to. Everyone was having so much fun, you forget what time it was. They don't close until the last paying customer is done. wow.

“GREAT VIEWS, GREAT STAFF, GREAT PRICES”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

They open late because they stay open late...so not lunch service anymore. We would like to see them open for lunch at least on weekends!

“Ocean cliff side restaurant/bar”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Tucked away off the main road, this restaurant has an incredible ocean view. Sitting right on the edge of a cliff, you can hear the waves crashing in down below as you eat delicious BBQ, fish tacos and singly made nachos. While waiting, you can walk down the stairs with your drink and enjoy the beach filled with coral.

“Great pulled pork and fish tacos”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Stopped here around 8:30 on Wednesday night (2/6/13) after doing the Virgin Kayak bioluminescence tour as it's just down the road a bit from Cane Bay where Virgin Kayak is located. We were originally going to stop at Rowdy Joes on our way back to C-sted (since Eat @ Cane Bay was closed for a wedding reception), but it had already closed. Since I'd read about this place, we decided to try it and I'm glad we did. There were only about 6 other people in the place at the time (it is kinda out by itself off the road on the North shore) but it looked like it could handle quite a large crowd when they have bands or on weekends. The bartender was very friendly and the cook (owner?) was very proud of his homemade hot sauce (I took one of the other slightly inebriated patron's advice not to try it unless you REALLY like hot stuff...and then only take a little!). My pulled pork sandwich was very good and the homemade BBQ sauce was some of the best I've had (& I've eaten a lot of BBQ over the years). My wife said her fish tacos were very good also. Since it was night, we can't comment on the view, but you could sure hear the surf down below. Great food, great people. Highly recommend if you're in the area.

“Great food, friendly folks, casual atmosphere, awesome view, low prices”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

I just realized that I never reviewed Above the Cliff when I lived on St. Croix...how can that possibly be? We ate there weekly and always really enjoyed it. Chris' ribs are positively the best on the island, and their other food is great...burgers, fish tacos, brisket, heck, everything on their menu is great. Their prices are very reasonable. Staff and customers are relaxed and friendly. One of the best reasons to go there is the live local entertainment. Whether you live on STX or you are just visiting, you MUST go enjoy Above the Cliff!
