“Amazing views”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Mountain top is a large combination gift shop, bar, and light food bar. It is hard to get to as it is located high on top of a mountain in an outlying area with only a few roads. If you rent a car, you have to watch the roads carefully as route numbers will change without making a turn. However, once you arrive, the views are amazing as you can see numerous Virgin Islands, and an unobstructed view of Megan's Bay below. The banana daiquiris are really good, and strong. This where the Banana Daquiri was invented, and is their specialty. And if you're looking for any souveniers, this is a great place for that too.

“Everything for the traveler under one roof”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Rebuilt after a fire - it now houses every souvenir any traveler would want. We got some excellent t shirts we saw no where else on the island. A drink is average BUT is the thing to do at Mountain top. Views of Megan's Bay are fantastic. A nice drive to the top of St Thomas.

“Great View”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

I didn't mess with the gift shop, but the views are unmatched by anywhere else on the island. You can see quite a few of the smaller surrounding islands. The Banana Daiquiri, for which the place is known for, was very good, but too expensive.

“Great view, same tacky gift shop.”
Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

We were hoping with the rebuilding of Mountain Top that the large gift shop would be worth stopping in for - but we were disappointed. Same cheap tacky gifts you find in town and havensight. The one plus is the beautiful view from the lookout deck - I would skip this though the next time and stop at the Greathouse instead.

“Back after fire several years ago.”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Mountain Top is a tourist trap with a gorgeous view of Megan's Bay from a free observation deck. There are plenty of shopping opportunities between the entrance and that observation deck for those that love to shop. Also, the highlight of Mountain Top (besides the view) is the bar where you can get a 'World Famous' Banana Daquari. Although you can order almost any drink at this well stocked bar...the banana is their claim to fame.
