Had a great dinner the other night here - had their special Ahi Tuna steak with seaweed salad - all was very yummy! My husband even then had the desert they're famous for and it looked so good I had to try some of it too - it was like a churro stuffed with banana then vanilla ice cream and... More

We were a group of 6 and had no reservations. We were seated immediately by a very friendly host. Our server, Mandy, was quick to greet us and recommend their version of a Painkiller to drink. The drinks came out fairly quickly and lived up to her recommendation. We all placed our orders with many recommendations from Mandy. We ordered... More

This place is suppose to be the best banana daiquiris around...well what a disappointment. I think because there were three bus loads of people there they could not keep up and make they proper.

Banana Deck was one of the restaurants we went to twice on our recent multi-generational trip. The ribeyes were great, but so was the fish and chicken. This was a great place to bring the kids - one of the few with chocolate milk, which impressed one of mine ;) Nice outdoor dining. We did need reservations, but were there... More

This is a lovely place to eat and you feel like you are in a tree, which brings back nostalgic memories of playing in trees-house. But then it goes up a notch and you get served well-made drinks from Kim. Next up crispy chicken wings and a delectable steak or pasta dish is close behind mmmhhh mmmmhhh good.

After our tour of St. John, this place. Was recommended as a place to get a good cheeseburger. After the climb up all of the stairs, it did turn out to be a great place to sit, eight, have a few cocktails, all while watching the water boats and people.

The banana deck is actually on a deck. Great atmosphere, we were lucky enough to get seated right away. The food and service was very good. Thanks Angela. The banana dessert was huge and awesome. Worth the visit for the dessert alone and the food was great too. We enjoyed the Banana Deck.

Good location, generally good food, but beware if a problem surfaces. Here's why: our takeout order for four people included a container of scallops au gratin costing $35 for rice, broccoli and 3 small scallops. We had already begun eating, but thought this must be a mistake, so we quickly called the restaurant. They confirmed the order should include 6... More
