“Back again”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

We were on the island Dec 2013 and stopped here to eat on our first night on the island. Since that dinner (mahi with cilanto sauce) we always talked about how good this was. Well once back on the island durring this trip we saw chicken with the cilantro sauce. So thats where we decided dinner was gonna be. We again had the same awesome waitress we had the first time there in Dec (Kristin).

Husband and I looked at menu and then couldnt decide between yhe chicken with cilantro sauce or caribbean chicken. After talking with Kristin we went with caribbean chicken and we were not dissapointed. It came with broccoli and rice.

We also got a side of baked potato soup which we both enjoyed.

We have not had a dinner here that we did not enjoy.

“Won't go wrong with the banana deck”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

I was here in late March with my wife and 19 year old son and sister and brother in-law. We ate two nights while in St John at the Banana Deck. Gets a little expensive if your drinking a lot of the special drinks and having dessert, but we have a good time. Arrived late the first night and they were out of a few dishes, but food was very good. Loved the outside deck and weather was fantastic to be outside. Service was very good too. The second night we went back earlier and all on menu was available. Would definitely go back and recommend to friends.

“Great Dinner!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

My wife and I recently dined at The Banana Deck, She had the Seafood Platter, and I had the Shrimp & Scallop Fettuccine Alfredo. The portion sizes were large, the food was very good, and the atmosphere was great! We would definitely go back!

“Fabulous and Fun”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

We had a great time here with Kristin the awesome server/bartender! She was engaging and gave us great service each time we were there. The food was delicious and reasonable for St. John and we would not hesitate to go back. Wish we were still there:)

“Great food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

This place had original food and amazing deserts. The service is great and friendly. The locals recomend it and now I know why. We went twice once just to sit up at the bar and nother time for dinner. Both times we had a great experience. We will be back for sure.
