Best Lunch Place near Cruz Bay

We will be visiting St. John for the day and would like to know where the best place is to eat lunch. We are hoping for something on the beach, island vibe, something the locals would frequent. If it is not in Cruz Bay area that is ok as well.

The Beach Bar comes to mind first because it is on the water. Make a right at the end of the (people) ferry dock and walk to the end of the building (Wharfside Plaza). Second is Banana Deck, directly across the road if you walk through The Beach Bar. Food is very good, but limited view of the water.

High Tide is another option, even closer to the ferry dock than the Beach Bar (by a few feet!).

High Tide's food quality is so much better than Beach bar's in my opinion. Beach bar is a bar with food while High Tide is a restaurant!

Not in the Cruz Bay area, but my vote for best lunch goes to Miss Lucy's in Friis Bay. You can sit right near the beach with incredible views of the water, very laid back and casual atmosphere, and the seafood wrap is awesome! This is our favorite lunch spot on STJ.

Another vote for High Tide. Service at The Beach Bar is terrible.

Wow, looks like High Tide is the most voted for huh? I just checked out their website and it looks good. I will definitely check it out unless more votes come in. :)
