This is my favorite spot for happy hour with great views of the sunset, right on the water.
Don't be discouraged about my rating of the food (above) - its great bar type food (just not one of the best meals I've ever had, 'cause I don't consider this a fine dining estrablsihment.

The bar tenderts are very pleasant and engaging...sit at the bar to meet some locals....find a spot right on the beach as well. Good burgers, tuna, of course good drinks!

The bartenders did a great job of making the best looking and best tasting bushwhacked drinks on the island! The food was also great! I had the tuna sandwich - rare and it was perfect.
This is a really fun place to go and you can feel comfortable in your bathing suit or in shorts. It is place that many locals visit.
The bar is right on the beach and very close to the ferry that comes from St. Thomas. This is a must go to location while in St. John!!

We travel in large groups. We love St. John and found the best way for everyone to get along is to have a meeting point where there is a great view and a beverage. The Beach Bar is perfect for this. The service is good, food is pretty good, drinks are great and the price won't break you. A great way to relax and let the time slip by.

The Beach Bar has recently changed hands, but most of the core group of bar and kitchen staff is still working there. The location, live bands, music and patron friendly atmosphere makes the Beach Bar a must see/stop when on St. John. As you make the loop around Cruz Bay and hit many shops, bars and restaurants the Beach Bar is one of my favorites. I have been coming to St. John for 17 years and have always enjoyed the waterfront of Cruz Bay. Whether it be lunch, happy hour, dinner or late night you will always find friendly attentive staff and guests alike. The food I have eaten there is always fresh.....salads, sandwiches and seafood always yummy. Priced moderately for any budget. You will not be disappointed!

The best Painkillers on the island. Sit at the bar and talk with locals and visitors alike. Have a bite to eat and another drink.
