The Beach Bar is just what you would hope and expect to find on St. John. Good (and potent) drinks, basic bar foods that make a great lunch of casual supper, and really nice wait staff.

Happy hour is one hour longer than most beach bars here and well drinks are only $3. Decent food for about $15 each with great french fries. Fish sandwhich and fish tacos recommended.

Loved going to the beach bar! Great view of Cruz Bay, bartenders are excellent, and good food. Cheese ball appetizer is amazing. Live music at night was great. Our favorite was St Groovus.

Do you allow cigar smoking? We will be coming to St. John in July. We are staying at Caneel Bay for a few days after a 10 day BVI charter and would like to end our vacay on a high note. Coming into Cruz bay for dinner, drinks and the guys would love a place to sit and enjoy a nice cigar. If not at your location, any suggestions?
