After a day at the beach we went for happy hour and food. Its a tradition, we love the view. We should NOT have ordered food. Worst meals we had . PS the drinks were ok but service was also bad.. We asked and new owners took over this year. Too bad...It was a favorite spot for us.

Its a fun place for drinks. Lots of games to play with (trivial pursuit, shut the box, connect 4). We went for dinner and food was fine bar foos. However, I don't consider it a great place for food allergies. We placed an order asking if one item was free of a particular allergen. The server said she would inform... More

Went here before going out to dinner just for some drinks. Fun place with a lot of energy. Sit right on the beach, and you can play corn hole or giant jenga among other things. Didn't get food, just drinks. The bushwhacker is very very tasty - it's basically a milk shake with booze in it. The amaretto in it... More

Just returned to Boston from our 4th St John adventure in 14 months and Beach Bar is a must stop every time. Excellent views, great drinks, great company. It's bar good but the chicken fingers and nachos are awesome! We're huge fans and can't wait to get back again soon!!!

It is a beach bar. Great for families, kids are busy playing beach games and eating bar food. Drinks good, not quite a Buffet bar but fun. Servers are very responsive. Go for bar food and beach bar ambience. Wings are great.

We love good food with a great setting! That's what this is! You can eat right on the beach at picnic tables, and watch a fantastic sunset while kids play in the water and climb the trees. It's so relaxed. We had burgers one night, wings on another(hot) and tempura shrimp,(yummy). Drinks are a little light on the booze. (Sad... More

We stopped for lunch at the Beach Bar while on a boat charter for snorkeling - we were only in St. Tom/St. John for a few hours on a cruise. It was the perfect spot for our group to grab lunch. The service was a little slow - but it's a beach! Who wants to be rushed? The crab dip... More

My husband and I recently visited St. John for our honeymoon, we were on island for 10 days and spent every night at The Beach Bar. We were staying up the hill at Lavender Hill Suites (within a 5 minute walk) and it was so convenient to scoot down the hill for delicious painkillers, tasty food and GREAT bands! The... More

Always a great time at the BB. they have music on many nights. It's always a party atmosphere. The ppl work HARD! Always busy. The beach part is the best. You'll be served right there. Enjoy. Bring the family.
