    The Great Bay Lounge has an incredible selection of refreshments. The menu has an Asian flare, yet also includes hamburgers and fries. We trid the sushi. It was amazing - spicy shrimp and shrimp tempura. Will definitely be back. Excellent service too.

    The food is good, not spectacular. However, we may have been swayed by our opinions of the food based on the inadequate service. We didn't get the table plantains until we asked even though every other table had theirs. We didn't get the specials suggested to us then heard another waiter explain them to other diners. And the problems just compounded after that. Finally the hostess came and got our waiter to bring us what was missing and more drinks, etc. She was very helpful. So, the food was seen as very good, not spectacular. Waiter was new, but obviously needed more training.

    We orderd special which was a filet and small lobster tail. Very good. My only frustration was a 23 dollar glass of Pinot noir meiomi, the same glass if wine at zozo in St. John was 14. Up charge ok but that's ridiculous.

    I live on the island and the hotel property is awesome!! Seems to have been upgraded as it has expanded to include more restaurants and “less beach” than I remember in 2004 last I visited. The food was very good. My fiancé had the mussels and I had the shrimp and linguine. Please stay away from the truffle fries starter unless you know exactly what to expect! (Acquired Taste)I would defiantly dine again. Especially because of open table because I couldn't get anyone to answer the phone to add 2 more to my reservation. Host was superb and servers were attentive. Overall, great experience!

    This is a great night out, very good food and friendly service add to the overall experience. You will pay $20 for a burger but this is the Ritz. Dinning room feels a little small and I would not reccommend dinning here as a romantic night out, this is where the familes staying at the hotel come for dinner. The bar is seperate from the dinning room and is full of couples having fun. I would return to eat here.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 6/27/2012
    Not really what we were looking for that night, It's a good place to get a drink not for dining at night unless you want something really low key. The staff was very friendly though, just not the type of place we wanted that night, looking for somethng a little nicer. It's more of a lunch spot like Sails.

  • It was good, but not quite
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 8/24/2010
    It was good, but not quite as good as last year. Sashimi wasn't as good. One hugely bizarre thing was our dessert. We each ordered ice cream for $9 a pop. We got ONE tray with 3 teenie scoops of ice cream. We asked the server and she said she actually gave us an extra scoop. I think it was screwed up...that we were each supposed to get a tray. We didn't push it any more, because it was our arrival night and we were wiped, but we saw evidence to the contrary later on the trip. We went there twice on our last trip, but never went back this trip.

    Always a highlight of our annual trip to St Thomas. While we also liked the former format, this "small-plate" approach works well. Obviously the view of Great Bay, Pillsbury Sound, and St John are spectacular. A must if you're staying at the Ritz. We prefer it to Bleu Water also at the hotel.
