“Food was tasty, ambiance nice”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

The conch fritters were recommended here--so tried them. They are so, so--lots of corn bread with tasteless chewy pieces.
I would have liked to sit nearer the water, but all those tables were reserved for a wedding party.
Recommend you get reservations if you want a better table.
So we were seated next to the kitchen, where later a 3-piece band played and did a good job--nice sounds.
The Carribean Jerk Mahi was good, the Blackened Grouper was better.
Pricier for same quality food for less at Skinny Legs.
Overall, it was an enjoyable evening.

“Outstanding view”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Definitely a stop for lunch with great service and food. Coral bay is the place to stay while visiting St. John and Shipwreck Landing is great for lunch.

“Great Set Up- Love the live music but service a little poor!”
Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

The live music is incredible and the food was great as usual but the service received on this trip was poor. It took the waitress several visits to our table to get the order right and our drink order sat at the bar for twenty minutes until I had to get up and grab them myself - by that time all ice was melted and for a $3 soda, its not great to have a flat drink. This is usually my favorite restaurant in Coral Bay but the new waitstaff need a little more training ...not the first time service was a bit poor here this year so I sure hope it improves. I would still recommend Shrip-wreck! Love the place.

“Bad food, lousy service”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Got here 20 minutes before dinner and could not Oder oft the dinner menu - come on.... Food was not good and the service was extra lousy. With so many options, why waste your money here? Would never go back.

“This place rocks!!!”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

I live on St John and this was my first visit to Shipwrecked and I can't believe I waited so long to go. The food and service outstanding and the prices are more than great for St John. I have heard many great things about it and they are all true, don't miss this place its awesome.
