Nice and charming. Nice setting and decor. Warm and friendly staff. Good food but our only disappointment was that they ran out of a number of their hot favourite plates.

We hosted a private party in celebration of our daughter's bat mitzvah the day before. We reserved the private balcony area and had a table for 12. I couldn't believe how incredible the service was, and how beautiful the location. Only thing that matched those was the food! (And the martinis were pretty kick-a## too). I loved the seared tuna,...

Great food and ambiance at a small restaurant in the Mongoose Junction building. Loved the special scallops, fried calamari, snapper and rib eye steak dinners. Definitely a step above most other restaurants we have visited here.

Our first meal outside Caneel's Turtle Bay and Beach Grill restaurants--quite a pleasant surprise. Service was gòod, and everything from the calamari to the lobster to the crab cakes was very well done. Will definitely return.

One of our favorite places to have a Happy Hour and then a great meal - wonderful seafood. It's right there by the ferry to St John so we seem to go a lot - and are glad to!

We really enjoyed our dinners - we had a group of 7 people and everyone was very happy with their meals. The PEI mussels were fresh and tender. The salmon was perfectly cooked.

I am vegan so we called ahead to see if the chef could prepare something for me and it was no problem and the food was delicious! The service was very good too! We had Espresso Martinis that were excellent also.

Dined here on a Monday night as our other dining options were closed that evening. Restaurant was very busy, but we had a reservation. Note, the restroom is located up a spiral staircase that is difficult for older diners to navigate. Seafood was excellent and dessert was good as well.

During our vacation on St. John we dined at some amazing restaurants. We had high hopes for our dinner at Ocean Grill. Unfortunately we did not have a stellar experience. My shrimp dish had only a few small shrimp and my husband's chicken was dry and tasteless. The wait staff did not seem interested in serving us and we left... More
