Great views of Cruz Bay and St Thomas all lit up at night. You can get a formal table or eat at the bar on the top floor. Great food and wine. My wife and I ordered one dish and an app and split it.

We had dinner here and I think all 6 of us were really pleased with our food. Our server was very friendly and efficient. We also enjoyed the atmosphere and the ability to walk around Mongoose Junction after dinner. I would return.

Always a good choice for elegant dining in a tropical stone walled courtyard. Attentive service and well prepared food are standard and the prices are reasonable.

I haven't missed a dinner to Ocean Grill in many vacation visits and this year was no exception! Drinks were perfect - Mussels are a must to get! Fish of day! Everything was great! Don't miss this - center of Mongoose!
