“Loved their Bushwackers! Best on the island!”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

The Banana Deck was recommended to us by a local, our Captain on our boat charter actually. He did not steer us wrong! The food was fantastic and the drinks were AMAZING! Couldn't find another place on the island to top their Bushwackers. The service was great and our food was prepared quickly. We were quite pleased, I highly recommend trying this place!

“Your whole family will love this place!”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

The food was great and affordable. The drinks were as they should be delicious! The staff were great. They even taught the kids how to feed Cletus the iguana his favorite cherries! Our kids hot dogs were so good we almost had to order more. I know your thinking..."really hotdogs??" but seriously YES I am not a huge hot dog fan but there was something special about theirs.

“Great first meal on St. John”
Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

The evening we arrived, we were Banana Deck's first customers. We grabbed a table with a view of Cruz Bay and just enjoyed settling in to the island. Our waitress was attentive and very welcoming - and to our sons' absolute delight, offered them a few extra maraschino cherries to share with their iguana friend, Cletus. Drinks were quite yummy (they made the best lime 'n coconut drink I had on St. John) and we were all pleased with our meals (younger son proclaimed their chicken tenders as the best he had that week). What a nice way to start our week in St. John!

“Great unassuming place --- Delicious Steaks”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

My wife and I had a great meal at the Banana Deck at the beginning of our St John visit. We had chicken skewers and a Rib Eye steak (cooked to perfection)...... Couldn't resist and went back for more steak the last day of our stay. Would definitely recommend that everyone try this great unassuming place.

“Seriously Best Dessert Ever”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

We spent the entire week trying to find another dessert to match the Xango - nothing beats it!!!! Loved the staff (ask for Christine - ziggy's mom); steaks are good; cut fresh daily; mahi mahi was good - nice outdoor space with a great view of Cruz Bay
