Our captain Moose took our family of 11 including grandparents, parents, and five kids ranging in ages 9 to 13 years old to the beach bar and it was a huge hit with everyone. We ate right on the beach and the food and drinks were absolutely to die for. Fish tacos, painkillers, burritos, crab Rangoon, you name it, everything... More

Great food, reasonably priced. Perfect place to let the kids wade while waiting for lunch (or dinner). Super nice staff--- we loved it & went a few times. The coolest thing was seeing Zach Deputy live on Tuesday night!

This is another spot right on the beach at Cruz Bay. I love being able to sit on the beach watching the boats come in while enjoying a drink and some good food.

Hands down best BUSHWACKERS in the VI. My favorite views, drinks, bar food, and beach games. I end every STJ boat trip with a visit to The Beach Bar!

This is the place to go if you want a cheap drink and a great view. No frills, but good prices and location. We were with out two small kids so it was probably a mistake to go during the sunset, as it does tend to draw in the rowdy crowd. And not too clean either, but still enjoyed a... More

We went here for after dinner drinks and loved it. The bar looks over the beach and has a great vibe. I highly recommend the Bushwacker if you are looking for a yummy desert-like frozen drink. They also have this HIGHLY addictive bar game where you have to slide a metal marble down two rods and deposit in a hole.... More

Beach Bar has some of the best live music in Cruz Bay. Great location for after dinner drinks and Happy Hour. Pub fare is fine and the on the beach location is prime.

Always our 1st stop in St. John for a long anticipated Bushwhacker. We were a little disappointed with our drinks this year. They just didn't measure up to drinks at neighboring bars. Hamburger was good but fried shrimp just ok. Still our favorite spot for live music.

Thank TravelerDeb113
