“Great Bar!”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

I was in St. Thomas for about a week and stopped by this bar a couple of times. The drinks and service were very good. Melissa, in particular, does a great job! It's definitely worth stopping by here least once while you are in St. Thomas.

“Pizza all tasted the same, Pina Colada GROSS”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

My husband and I were out shopping and looking for a quick delicious meal, as the reviewers had written. Unfortunately, we must have caught a bad day…

The service was deplorable. I mean beyond the usual "Island time" we mainlanders have to get used to. The Pina Colada was actually gross, it was all liquid, curdled at the top and was really lacking in any tropical flavor.

I did give 3 stars because the pizza, although we ordered different pizzas, they tasted darn near identical, were on the small size for the price, but they were good.

I would choose more wisely next time.

“Awesome place for cheap food and drinks”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

We ventured into town the night before our sail in the BVI's and what an awesome find. Cheap drinks and excellent food.

The bartenders and staff were excellent, but do remember its ISLAND TIME!

“Best bartenders ever!!!”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

This place has such cheap food and drinks it is ridiculous. $1.75 beers or a beer and love juice for $4. The grapefruit crush is awesome and Bri is my favorite bartender on the island

“Good food, good drinks, reasonable prices”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

The drinks were awesome, my recommendation is to try a BBC. The food is good and it offers a great view of the harbor. Service is mediocre as it is most places on this island.
