This is the sister bar of Woodys. They have a great Happy Hour and the food special seemed good (when we were there they had $5 burgers that looked pretty good). Unfortunately, we didnt eat when we were there... next time tho! The staff was friendly and welcoming.
Probably the best aspect of this bar is the people watching... its a great location. Grab a $1 Coors Lite, plop on the rail, and just watch life.

Great spot just up the hill from the water, spent a nice happy hour there killing time for the ferry. Can't beat a place that has dollar beers on an island. Friendly staff would come back again.

First off this has recently changed owners so may impact the experience we had. We went on July 4 which is carnival in St John. What we love about the island is that it is friendly and more "local" than other islands such as St Thomas. However we were asked to pay 500$ for a table for four or 200$ for a table for two to watch the parade. This had to be paid in cash and then you had to buy your drinks and food on top of this. We were told we would have excellent service - which we did for the first two hours then we had to go find our server. While we love the location of this bar - the cost of a seat for carnival left a bitter taste in our mouths. We checked with other bars and restaurants across the island and all were surprised at the charge and said this was not the way things were done on the island.

Located across the street from Woodies and both are owned by the same people. The food is very good, the owner is very friendly and his staff make you feel like old friends. A great Happy Hour and an excellent place to meet new friends. We go to St John at least twice a year and always make several stops here.

Spent a wonderful full afternoon on their deck. Great staff and people watching! Food service from Woodys across the street was great.
