Ocean Grill: What To Know

Location: Cruz Bay, Mongoose Junction
At lunch, the setting is casual but the food is seriously good. Served at our mahogany bar, our tropical bar lounge and on the patio, lunchtime specialties include our renowned tacos, generously sized grilled salmon salad, and arguably the best burger on the island, just to name a few.
Dinner is under the stars amid swaying palms in our beautiful and romantic courtyard patio and gazebos, more casually in our tropical bar lounge, or at our mahogany bar. You will find our dinner menu to be comprehensive and innovative, with something to please everyone at your table. Enjoy live music every night except Sundays from some of St. John’s favorite musicians from November through May.

John Gillfillan
John has worked in the restaurant industry from his first job forward. As a California native he recognized the importance of using only the freshest foods available, and favors a “cleaner” approach to dishes. No heavy masking sauces for him!

Patty Tacquard
Trusty side-kick to John, Patty is classically trained from the Cordon Bleu, Guiliano Bugiali’s Italian Cooking School in Florence, Tante Marie’s Cooking School, San Francisco, and also extensive seminar classes with renowned chefs such as Julia Child, Jacques Pepin, Paul Prudhomme, etc.

Tim Tacquard
As a 7 year old John Gillfillan described him, “Tim can fix anything in the world except dinner”. And thank goodness we have him as our on-call (sorry, Tim) all around go to guy for “yes, we can” improve the lighting, add shelves, wire new equipment, build it, light it, fix it, do everything but fix dinner guy – and that part is ok, because we have excellent chefs for that.

Kevin Hrastar
Kevin comes to St John from his birthplace of Dayton, OH via, most recently, Fort Collins, CO. During a brief stopover while on a cruise, Kevin fell in love with St John; one more visit, staying only on St John, cinched the deal. He and his recent bride, Erin, moved down to stay in October of 2008. He has worked in the restaurant industry for over 20 years, and it’s a natural fit. At the Ocean Grill he is our tireless bartender/manager and always wins the “most organized” award.

Private Parties

Ocean Grill is the perfect tropical setting for your special event
From intimate private dining to large group celebrations, let our highly experienced staff work with you to create your next memorable celebration at Ocean Grill on St John.

During the day, enjoy a delectable lunch in our shady patio, gazebo, and bar lounge. Dinner is served under the stars and palms, yet you can always be confident that our retractable roof will keep all of your guests shaded from heat and dry in the occasional tropical shower.

Ocean Grill is highly experienced and can accommodate your private party for any occasion, such as wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, special celebrations, corporate groups, meetings, or just for fun.

Intimate dining parties up to 18, or standing cocktail parties up to 30 people may reserve our private balcony room. Our beautiful and romantic stone courtyard patio, gazebos, and balcony combine to accommodate up to 80 people for seated dining, and 90 people for a buffet style party.
