“BEST VALUE & GREAT FOOD in Cruz Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2012

This is the best place to eat (and drink) for the value in St. John. The food is reasonably priced, you get good size portions and I have never ordered anything here I did not end up really enjoying. Most of the restaurants in Cruz Bay are very expensive and just medocire food. The Beach Bar is mostly a bar, so not much seating, but it is my favorite place to go in Cruz Bay.

“Decent food, decent prices, right on the beach...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2012

The Beach Bar is probably the most laid back dining in St. John. We ordered at the bar, and sat at an expansive table and the drinks and food came out in fast order. My mahi sandwich was delicious, no complaints. They serve their food on plastic plates, with disposable utensils and plastic cups. No biggie. Good prices for St. John. Great place for a drink, night or day. They have a couple tables right on the beach, too. Find their website and check out their 24-hr. bar cam. Then you'll have a good idea. We loved the ambiance of the restaurants at Wharfside and the shops as well. You can't go wrong at the Beach Bar.

“Good food, fun atmosphere, great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2012

Good food - go for happy hour and get $4 painkillers - delicious! Get any salad with grilled shrimp added - awesome. This is easy to get to from the ferry - at the end of the strip just off the ferry dock - just walk to the end of the short beach.
We ate here twice.
