Good bar food and drinks on the beach. Attractive for the location and scenery but it does have good hamburgers and nachos. Not the best restaurant in town but very good Waite staff.

I have to start by saying that the beach bar holds a special place in my heart. On my very first trip to St John, a few years ago, The Beach Bar was the first place I landed after exploring the island a little. I had no idea where I was going or what I was doing. I was by... More

We enjoy going to the Beach Bar for a relaxing afternoon. Turn your chair around and enjoy the view. The food, drink and conversation is great. Thumbs up to Danny, Lindsey and Ashley. However, the tall male bartender with the wrong way ball cap, thumbs down. He is the only negative aspect of the Beach Bar. Definitely, check it out.... More

We had a couple of snacks here which were very good. I think it was a lobster quesadilla that was my favorite. The bartenders were friendly, and the highlight of the afternoon was watching three dolphins swimming and jumping by the boats in the bay. So nice!

The Beach Bar is a great place to grab cocktails and food with an ocean view. The place is very casual as the name suggests but the food and drink are very good. The ahi tuna appetizer is sushi caliber. There are bar games, cornhole, Janga and live music which enhance the beach atmosphere. Reid the owner of the bar... More

We had a great time sitting on a picnic table in the sand on the shore of Cruz Bay enjoying the beautiful water view. We played Jenga and bean bag toss while we waited for our food. Oh, and sampled the famous bushwhacker drink that was delicious. The food was great. We didn't know what to expect but the grilled... More
