Good family dining, occasional entertainment, and casual atmosphere. Eat outside at tables under umbrellas.

Cafe Roma

The Lumberyard Complex, up the hill from the Post Office.
One of the best breakfast places in Cruz Bay, or enjoy lunch. At night, a different management offers good dining options. This has been sold, and the new owners are just opening. Good breakfast, as always.

Ocean Grill
Mongoose Junction
Opened in 2007, and quickly very popular. In a beautiful, quiet courtyard in the back left of Mongoose. Excellent selection and service.

Pavilion Restaurant
Maho Bay Campgrounds
A bit of a drive, since Maho Bay is a ways out of town, but the view is worth it. Come for sunset. Not at all expensive -- in fact, it is cafeteria style. Order a dinner selection and put it on your tray when it is ready, add a salad from the good salad bar, and walk to one of the round tables overlooking the Caribbean. Excellent draft beer! You can't go wrong here, but don't expect to be waited on.

Quiet Mon Pub
Center of Cruz Bay, above La Tapa, next to Woody's
St. John's only Irish Pub. Sit on the balcony and watch the street scene below. WIFI. Draft beer.
