Nice spot to enjoy lunch with a view. No healthy options, mostly burgers with interesting toppings. Wine list is ok.

Stopped in for lunch- the view was beautiful- right on the beach behind Bamboo Jewelers. Were able to split the burgers for a smaller lunch portion- homemade fries were fantastic. Went back for dinner- not as good- I think different chefs. We had a veal special- it was over cooked and dry. The general manager and our waitress (Tessa) were... More

we were a party of 8 and they did very well with us. The fish was excellent and our friends enjoyed their hamburgers. The conch chowder was excellent. They also have many specialty drinks. All the desserts are to die for.

We have been to St. John many times, but only discovered this restaurant 2 years ago. My husband says the calamari is the best, equal to Zozo's. I love the vegetable spring rolls/sauce and anything vegetarian they serve. Fun to sit at the bar or tables. They had a terrific saxophonist this year, very lovely evening.

The space is quite nice, indoor outdoor in Mongoose Junction, and the service was excellent, however, the quality of the food was below what one would expect.

Went to St.John for dinner last night. Decided on Ocean Grill because of reviews on this site. Set in the back of Mongoose Junction shopping area. This place has live music and good menu. Salads are a good portion compared to most places. The pan seared Mahi-mahi with asparagus and rice was delicious. The paella was full of seafood not... More

Dinner was great, had the Mahi, very flavorful and moist. One of the owners is a pastry chef and makes dessert daily, save room.
