Perfect location for a sunset dinner. The burgers were great. Drinks were also good. The eggplant dinner was not good. Stick with seafood or the burgers. Sunset was beautiful. We really enjoyed this restaurant and would recommend it.

It's situated on one of the calmest most beautiful beaches. The drinks are great. The food is okay... it's best to ask for recommendations. The service is friendly but maybe on the slower side, but it is all part of the comforting atmosphere. You will definitely have an enjoyable time here.

Beach Side is a beautiful restaurant with an amazing view of the ocean, has good food, and the people who work there are friendly and so nice. However, the service in the restaurant is mind-bendingly slow. I understand leisurely dining, and I understand island time, but this is way beyond anything I have ever experienced. My husband and I go... More

The chef was brought in from MD by the new owners (hi Chris), and wow, can he cook some seafood. We dined here twice (once on Valentine's) and will definitely visit again. Everything was to die for. The view of the sun setting over the ocean during dinner was the icing on the cake, but seriously, the food was so... More

My girlfriend and I came to enjoy the sunset and some dinner. The location is spectacular right on the beach with great sunset views. The food was awesome! We had a watermelon salad and the mixed seafood grill with mahi and tuna! So fresh and delicious. For dessert we got the lime in the coconut cheesecake (it doesn't look big... More

One cannot beat the location of this restaurant. And if that were not enough, add great service, friendly waitstaff, and terrific food. The beach is one of the nicest on St. Croix, and sunsets are perfect there. If you can only eat out once while on St. Croix, this is the one! They serve both lunch, dinner and Sunday Brunch... More

Again this year, my husband and I had dinner here every night in January that they were open. We found the food consistently good quality, the atmosphere fantastic and the employees warm, caring and very professional. We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a memorable evening.

We had reservations for a sunset dinner right next to the beach which was gorgeous. This is a beach side cafe and the setting is not super fancy. The food was good and the owner was kind enough to greet us tableside. The tuna entree was ordered lightly seared and rare but arrived well cooked. The area is not one... More
