Price was right. Friendly &... More

Sweets was the bomb! Best service I have ever seen. We had salmon which was amazing. Kids had plain pasta with plantains and French fries. She was on point all the way along with the food. Definitely not disappointed!

This place has a great location by the harbour where there are lots of flashy boats, and the moon strikes the water just right at night. I would love to give this place more than 3 stars, but this is exactly what you would expect for a beach bar. Other than some of the funny names and interesting drinks on... More

Kind of your typical port bar. Bartender was super friendly. Was very helpful on helping the ladies decide on drinks. We didn't try the food so can't really comment on that end of the place. Drinks were decently priced for the area we were in. If in the port give it a stop by!!

I would not recommend this place. I've been a patron since the marina opened. And this year was the first where I really should have walked out of the establishment. Just bad bad bad

Food here was delicious and the prices were not bad at all when we visited for lunch. The atmosphere is great being right is Yacht Haven Grande. It's entertaining to look out on all of the luxurious yachts and whatever cruise ships happen to be in port on a given day. We were completely satisfied and would definitely visit again.

We enjoyed our last meal in St. Thomas here. It was a great atmosphere - though we did think it was interesting how very nice this area was compared to the rest of St. Thomas. Obviously that is what they want the cruise ship passengers to see. But the food - especially the pizza - was outstanding.
