My husband and I are regular visitors to St John and think the Beach Bar is one of the better local bars in Cruz Bay. The food is very good (ahi tuna bites, flying shrimp, seaweed salad...) and reasonably priced. The happy hour from 3-7 is terrific, with inexpensive beers and Painkillers (among other options). The location is perfect--right on the water, and easy to find in the Wharfside Village. Everyone who works there is friendly. And if you are so inclined, you can let your friends/family know you're there and they can 'see' you on the bar's webcam :). We make a point to go there at least once each time we are in St John and are never disappointed.

We have eaten here many times and I think the food is pretty basic bar food. However, it really is a St John icon. The tuna down now is one of their signature dishes. The views of Cruz bay are fanatstic and there are a lot of local characters that you will recognize. The service can be lacking if they have entertainment and a large crowd.

We love this bar! Whenever we are in St. John, we make it a point to stop in there several times. They have great painkillers there. The bartenders are the BEST on St. John. Sunny and Mike are awesome. Can't wait to go back.
