We had a wonderful meal here - great service and great food! While the restaurant is a bit pricey, I felt the quality of the dinner - both in taste and presentation - warranted the cost. I'd definitely come here again on a future trip.

Went here twice during our stay on St. John. Beautiful Restaurant, and the lobster ravioli was my best meal on the island! My boyfriend had the prime rib, which he enjoyed. Located in Mongoose Junction, and perfect for a more upscale dinner.

We had a decent dinner there. Good food. Not great. The stir fry veggie dish way over sauced. Tuna good. Steak decent. Pricey. Slow service. Salads were a joke. My rabbit eats more lettuce than what was on the mixed greens plate. Nice courtyard setting...More

From the unique atmosphere to the live music in the background of the Ocean Grill is a relaxing spot for a most enjoyable meal. My wife had the lobster ravioli with the lobster tail on top and I have a perfectly cooked steak. The couple...More
