“Good food, drinks and music”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

It's all good! I would have given an excellent rating but during my last solo visit, I could not get anyone to take my order at lunch time. My favorite is the grilled chicken burrito and the painkiller.

“It is what it is...”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

.... a BEACH BAR! So for all you pretentious people expecting something else, forgive me, but this most certainly was NOT the place for you. So don't come back and let the rest of us enjoy it without your attitude. This is where you will find the best local entertainment on island, a great happy hour and sunset that can't be beat. You can sit at the bar, tables, or on the beach. What more can you ask for? The food is average to better than average but well-priced so have a couple of drinks and you won't know the difference. Tip well and you'll get your drinks quicker...It's not rocket science! We have been coming to STJ for 10 years and this is one of our favorite stops... Now we even bring the kids and they can have fun playing on the beach and enjoying the sand and sun while we kick back and enjoy the sunset, music and fun atmosphere!

“Fun times with fun people”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

The people make the place and there are some great people here. As the name suggests--it is right on the beach with a great view of the boats in the bay. The drinks were well-poured and well-priced and we were well served. Definitely a place to be when you visit! Have fun!

“fun, laid back Atmosphere”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

We came here twice during our stay in St. John. The bartenders were always amazingly friendly and sociable. and somehow still managed to get everyone their drinks without a huge wait. Bushwacker was amazing and all other drinks did not fail to satisfy.

“Fun Times at the Beach Bar”
Reviewed November 4, 2013 via mobile

Prior to going to St. John I was told by everyone that has been there to check out the Beach Bar. The Beach Bar was my first stop in St. John and I quickly understood why people love this place. The food was delish, the drinks were great and the service was awesome. The staff provides a fun, feel good atmosphere. A shout out to Jen, Heather, Chris, Mike and Jimmy! I highly recommend the Bushwacker! Also they have great entertainment.
