We went about 2pm on a Thursday afternoon, so the place wasn't very busy. The view from the top deck is great! The bartender was friendly and our orders were prepared promptly. Nice place to hang out after doing some shopping around Cruz Bay.

We went to the Banana Deck last year when we were in St John and really liked it, so we went back. It is still as good as we remembered it. I had a Lime in Da Coconut drink that was delicious! My husband had a Long Island Iced Tea and he said it was good. We both had grilled... More

I visited the Banana Deck Restaurant, on two (2) occasions, for brunch/lunch, and again for Dinner, the latter on Tuesday 6 December 2016. I always love seafood, while at especially ocean side resort vacations. My traveling partner, and, I both received: 1. Outstanding Service, well worth paying, imho, a 20% tip, for advice, and, locating a ideal table for two... More

Seven guys who were hungry and needed those island drinks to get the week started. We had reservations and were seated immediately. Drinks were quick and then had time to... More

Had great service and a great steak. Probably the best steak on island. (I used to live there) Got a 20oz steak and split it. The salads are good to. It has a wonderful atmosphere with a beautiful view. Would eat here again.

This place has a cute deck with a tree growing in the middle of it. It was pretty empty so we stopped in for dinner after a boat charter. I had a Greek salad with blackened mahi mahi ( extra 8 bucks) also the shrimp and crab roll appetizer and my partner had shrimp and crab alfredo. As usual for... More

We ate here our first night. Very casual dining with really good food. If you want a steak, theirs are very good. Also, we had some dessert with bananas and ice cream. It was to die for. We do not like fancy restaurants or really fancy food. This place was fun and relaxing.

My husband even then had the desert they're famous for and it looked so good I had to try some of it too - it was like a churro stuffed with banana then vanilla ice cream and... More

We were a group of 6 and had no reservations. We were seated immediately by a very friendly host. Our server, Mandy, was quick to greet us and recommend their version of a Painkiller to drink. The drinks came out fairly quickly and lived up to her recommendation. We all placed our orders with many recommendations from Mandy. We ordered... More
