Food & Drink

Lime Out

The mini nautical version of Lime Out, this floating taco shack & bar is towed into Hansen Bay each day and opens at 11am serving delicious drinks and some of the best tacos you will find in the Virgin Islands. Boats pull up alongside, dinghies come over from nearby charter sailboats and most importantly, St. John visitors can drive out to Hansen Bay, pay the $3 fee for parking, and rent a kayak or paddle board (or bring a previously rented one from say Virgin Islands Expedition Co.) and paddle out. Sit yourself on one of the underwater seats or belly up (under water) to the floating platform, order a drink and some tacos, and enjoy a truly unique St. John experience. Think of it as a deuced up Angel’s Rest mixed together with Soggy Dollar Bar.

Maho Crossroads

Opened in late 2018, Maho Crossroads is a kind of mini beach oasis in the sand that is evolving across the road from the west end of Maho Bay. With over a dozen parking spots, a tiki bar, small clothing shop, and food van, you can spend the day relaxing on Maho then walk down for a snack and a drink and lunch and talk with some fellow St. John lovers - then return to your beach chair and enjoy the view.

North Shore Deli

Conveniently located in Mongoose Junction, North Shore Deli is open every day for breakfast and lunch. It’s our favorite place to grab a sandwich or two for the beach, and maybe a rum punch. They also make great breakfasts, as well as salads and desserts. A tip - make time to get a sandwich or two on go-home day, beats airport food and makes going home a little easier.

18 64

Focusing on top quality seafood, 18 64 is currently being built in the far north end of Mongoose Junction shopping center, in the space previously occupied by Ocean Grill (next to North Shore Deli). Brought to you by the same crew who started and manage Extra Virgin Bistro.

18 64 opened in early July 2019 and is open for lunch from 11a - 2p, raw bar 3p - 5p, and dinner 5:30p onward. The bar is open from 11a - dinner.

Banana Deck

Great spot right in Cruz Bay, looking out over the Beach Bar, the Banana Deck serves up some amazing steaks, seafood dishes, excellent salads, and, of course, drinks of your choosing from behind the bar. It’s a great place to just relax in the shade on a lazy afternoon or hit them up Sunday and enjoy the Bloody Mary Bar. You can pay for one drink and mix your own Bloody Mary, Screwdriver or other drink - or pay a little more for unlimited trips back to this DIY bar.
