“No local cooperation”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

We are a local company, live, work and support the local business here.We just spent $385 with Octoberfest...asked for a " Stein" glass for free for our company shelf as we did our season kick off meeting..The manager denied and wanted to charge us $35 for the "Stein" after spending that amount of money...Been there numerous times, also support Mojo's with my team!
Looks like you guys turn into a real tourists trap, not appreciating local business...Not happy with the way the manager handled the situation. Looks like local business does not count here anymore.

“Great Food”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Fun bar with very friendly staff. Yummy German food and other local fare (seafood). Bathroom was a little sketchy, but after a few cocktails you don't mind it so much.

“Great Burgers!!!”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Great huge burgers! Good wings. Overall Nice bar. A few TVs, Pool tables, a few slots. From the inside you didn't know you were in St Thomas. And I don't mean that in a bad way.

“Good place for a beer and sandwich”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

This was the first place I ate at on the island. It's a typical "island tavern" offering a bar like atmosphere with food.

Food was good, beer was cold and not too expensive.

“Great burger”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Admittedly, we traveled during the off season and most restaurants were closed; but, this was our best meal on the island. We had lunch--just burgers, but they were quite good.

Service was very good; but, they weren't exactly swamped when we visited. The only hiccup in service would have been when I informed the diet coke tasted odd, he stated "it just different on the island." Obviously, it doesn't or at least it didn't anywhere else. Even after not drinking anymore of the cola, I was still charged for it.

The turtle cheesecake was quite excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to eat there again. I'll just be smart enough to not order a diet coke again!
