Sit by the sushi bar and talk to Bryan. His sushi is simply delicious, fresh and done with love and dedication.

Nice local joint with live music, decent view of the harbor and cheap beers ($3) and pub food. They have a Fritos pie which sounds good if you are not worried about having a cholesterol check anytime soon - according to the menu is it a bag of Fritos with chili and cheese poured into the bag and served in...

We went into Drirtwood David's the other day. Yum. The daily Sushi special was very attractive priced and was fresh and great. Love the addition. Located Just between the ferry dock and the national park right at the Lumberyard plaza. Put it on your list.

I am a sushi addict and this place was great. Great view of Cruz Bay, new owners were very friendly and you can actual create your own sushi.

This was our third trip to St John and it is absolutely a must for us each trip! The ribs and hamburgers are the best we have ever had! Our teens loved it so much we had to go again on our last day! Definitely one of our favorite places to eat on St John! Thanks Dave!

We stopped in here for a late lunch needing food after a long morning of hiking the Reef Bay trail. We were greeted warmly by the owners and chose a table for 4 in a breezy open air porch. They've got a pretty broad menu from burgers, chicken and ribs to a huge sushi menu-something for just about every taste.... More

We found this place on a review website and decided to give it a try. Very simple menu, but the food was excellent. Service was very friendly and helpful. They didn't seem to mind we walked in (twice) with a party of 7. We went once for supper. We came back for Thanksgiving lunch. 2 of us had the Thanksgiving... More

Elizabeth and David made us feel right at home when we stopped in for a late lunch. The $4 burrito was delicious and sizeable. Probably the cheapest and best you'll find on the island. The fish burger was simple. Not worth the $12 but this is normal pricing for St John. Happy hour starts at 1500 with $2 beers but... More
