“Rum Rum Rum!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

After beach and bus hopping around the island for most of the day, The boyfriend and I were tired, hungry and wanting a drink or two or three (hiccup).

I had bookmarked this place before we left (rum rum rum) just in case we needed somewhere to chill for a while. What luck this awesome surf shack is located by the mall and by the port! You can stumble back onto your ship and not miss the port time! Score!

Do not expect this place to be big, instead it is a cute little circle shack in the middle of a parking lot. There are benches and swings you can sit on at the bar (warning do not sit in the swings like we did otherwise you will have a not so nice girl telling you to get down) guess they had a lot of happy drinkers taking a backwards fall. Sad we got off the swings and sat on the benches with the swing seat as a backrest. If that seating arrangement does not tickle your fancy then they have plenty of tables with umbrellas to sit at too.

Our bartender was awesome and friendly with taking our order.
-Pina Colada ($7.00)
-St Thomas beer ($7.00)

(FYI they have happy hour from 4:30pm-7:00pm) where most of their beer selections are cheaper then menu price.
Their food menu is limited but I heard they are going to be adding some new items soon.

We decided to order some chips and salsa ($5.00) and then share a Pound of poultry plate ($12.00) which came with chips and your choice of sauce. The chicken is freshly marinated with jerk seasonings and then BBQ to your liking.

This chicken is worth the wait (or we were just enjoying our drinks a little too much and taking photos) fall off the bone tender meat with just a right kick of spice. Their house made sauce was finger licking.

Chips and salsa were good to snack on- chips were fresh and the salsa tasted like Pace salsa, which I love and do not mind one bit!

There is no hustle to get you out, when you are ready to leave, or stumble you way out the bartender will give you the check.

Mojo's we heart you as big as the Caribbean sea!!

“Always a fun place to stop for a drink”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

We like having a quick cocktail while swinging before heading out for dinner...staff is normally great...location is in a parking lot beside a busy road.

Mandy was friendly and serves up great drinks w/ local tips. The 'swing chairs' are cool, too! Highly recommend a stop on the way to/from the pier.

“Not the best but not the worst”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

This place was just ok, it is decent to go to but service was iffy and the cost was excessive. I would look into finding a better place it might be farther away but it would definitely be worth it.
