“Great location, great place”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We typically make several visits to the Beach Bar during our annual visits to St. John. It is at a great location right on the beach. It is a very laid back atmosphere with reasonably priced drinks and food. We have always received great service. There is no table service but there are only a few tables which are within a few feet of the bar, so getting your drinks takes minimal effort. I suggest grabbing a stool at the bar if there is one available.

“Barefoot, almost, at the Beach Bar”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

You can't go wrong with a place where you can order your beer and walk out to soak your toes in the surf. Really, you can't. This funky place is at the heart of the dockside area in Cruz Bay and a necessary stop while waiting for your rental jeep or just cooling your heels while the ferry makes its way back from Red Hook. The food is solid if simple but you really go there to cool off with one of many signature beverages, look out onto the bay and the sandy vista, people watch and relax. Remember to wave at the webcam every now and then - have your friends check the website from their office cubicle so you can taunt them with a Presidente in your hand and toes curled in the sand!

“What service?”
Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

Location is great, food is decent, but the service is nonexistent. Two bartenders with an empty bar on a Sunday evening and these guys couldn't be bothered to help the family at the table 5 feet away from the bar. These guys must be independently wealthy cause they sure don't seem to care about tips!

“Best painkillers!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

I love this laid back place. Great painkillers especially at happy hour prices. The tuna steak sandwich is also quite good. Great place to just hang especially during Sunday jam sessions.
