Bananakeet’s location on the mountain provides excellent views of Jost Van Dyke and the US Virgin Islands. Sunset is spectacular. Conch fritters were wonderful. The shrimp Alfredo and pork dishes earned the highest praise. The wasabi tuna was prepared well also. Don’t miss the frozen...More

This place is every bit as good as it was before Irma. The food is excellent and they've done a great job with the makeover. The blended Bananakeet is the best! Enjoying the sunset is one of the things that makes this place so special.

Have eaten at Bananakeet many times and it has always been good. The rack of lamb in particular is excellent but tonight was a big disappointment. Ordered the Thai seafood plate and everything was cold. The seafood is served on a scallop shell - it...More

Our friends guided us to Bananakeet, one of the few places reopened on the North Shore, and this is sure to be a go-to place once the season gets underway. We were one of only two dinner parties at 7:30 p.m. on a Saturday evening,...More

We heard good things and tried this place during our visit. Fantastic dinner and drinks - plus a view that you can't even imagine - it's so beautiful overlooking Carrot Bay. It was lively and the service was good. Don't hesitate.
