“Best Banana Cake Ever!!”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

We went for dessert and to listen to the music. We had the banana cake a few years ago and
had obtained the recipe. It is now a family favorite. It is still amazing. The pastry chef is so
talented and this restaurant should get more credit for being so good. Fun place to go. Nice
servers and atmosphere. Even though it is in Mongoose Junction-it is pretty at night. We found
parking easier here there than other places. This year parking was a challenge everywhere!
Don't miss this place! Great for lunch too.

“Still dreaming of the coconut pie...”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

We visited this restaurant for lunch after shopping in Mongoose Junction (beautiful center). Loved their great cocktails and creative menu. Beautiful open atmosphere too. Apparently one of the owners is also a pastry chef...the four of us shared a slice of the coconut pie and key lime pie for dessert. I can't get the coconut pie out of my mind. It was incredible - the best I've ever had. We might have to make the 8 hour trek back to St. John just for another slice of that someday...and this time, I'm NOT sharing!

“Excellent Lunch”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

Four of us had lunch here while shopping at Mongoose Junction. The setting was very relaxing. We enjoyed cocktails ( Bushwackers, Prosecco, Virgin Island Summer Ale). Our friend absolutely loved his layered seafood cocktail which was a ceviche with conch,shrimp, calamari and veggies. My husband and I had the pork tacos, delicious! Our friends enjoyed their Mediterranean chicken salad and the tuna special of the day. We were not rushed and really enjoyed the outdoor setting.

“Another great meal!”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

We've been coming to St. John for many years, and always try to make it to dinner here - there are just the right amount of menu selections, without the overhyping of odd combinations, and the food is consistantly delicious and reasonably priced, a great value for the money. I've even changed my 'Go-to" drink to the Ocean Grill Martini, having one whenever I need to be transported back to our favorite island.

“Great Spot for Lunch”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

We stayed in St. Thomas for a week and went to St. John for the day and, after a several hours of snorkeling, stopped here for lunch. We had mahi sandwiches, tacos, fruity drinks. Everything was delicious, especially the blackened mahi sandwich. Just a perfect lunch.
