We frequent St. John and can't tell you how many times we walked passed this gem of a restaurant before finally taking those steps down into this rustic no frills restaurant with the most amazing food! We were so impressed with our meals~dessert~drinks, that we ate here twice during our last stay! It may not have the greatest view, but... More

We had an excellent meal here with super service. I recommend the Jambalaya. Oh, and the desert was amazing!

our waiter was good and he gave us good food suggestions but the food was kind of bland for what we are use to in previous visits - so we felt it was just average

Wow - everything was delicious, and the service was the best we've experienced so far on the island. Simple ambience, but charming nonetheless

With our tummies on a different time zone we took advantage of the food happy hour (until 1830). Fish tacos and grilled salmon on salad for $16 each (normally $20 each). The view is unimpressive but the food was great. We'll come back for some of the more luxurious menu items.

WE absolutely loved everything here! It could be because we were out snorkeling all day and were starved, but I think it was the food, location, and service!

Was expecting more from this restaurant. Were seated near the service area, so no atmosphere. Looked out onto the road. Food was just ok.

Don't judge a book by its cover! The simple decor does not match the quality food! I recently brought a party of 6 after going twice in years past. We had a 3lb snapper meant to share and it was awesome! Great presentation and delicious. 2 non fish eaters ordered chicken and beef sandwiches and they were happy too. The... More
