We stopped to have a little snack and drinks while shopping and this was the first sit down more upscale restaurant we came across while shopping North of the ferry docks. The food was pretty good and the service was excellent but the drink prices were unreasonable for the little glasses they served them in. I would go back for... More

Great location, average taste, entrees sound good but stick to the fresh fish or beef. The lobster specials are good but pricy. There are too many other options in the area choose from to go back to this restaurant.

My husband and I received a few tips for dinner. We were uncertain of which to try, but we heard to gentle steel drums being played and decided on the Ocean Grill. The service was excellent. The Sangria was well made and my Ahi Tuna was like nothing I have ever tasted. My husband had a fantastic plate of Paella.... More

After a few too many rich dinners, we felt like a lighter meal, and Ocean Grill was the perfect place. We split a green salad with pear, and then each had two starters. (Of course there were also very tempting entrées like seared magi or tenderloin.....) I very much enjoyed a tuna tartare tower (despite burning lips afterwards) and then... More

Can't beat the pleasant outdoor dining area. St John at its best. Food average. Desserts outstanding. Thursday they have live music. Can't hear yourself think. And terrible music if you are over 40.

Stopped in for a nice lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Service was excellent. Had a grilled tuna sear that was cooked perfectly. Reasonably priced.
