We had dinner at the bar and enjoyed every minute. The chicken quesadilla and chicken fettuccine we're both delicious and the bartender was great. We met a few different people while dining and the "local" crowd made us feel very welcome.

My fella and I had a wonderful meal at Banana Deck. We both took our wonderful waiter/bartenders advise and ordered a ribeye with all the trimmings. Best steak we have had since moving to STJ.
