The Longboard: Other Information
Our menu features healthy, fresh options like gourmet tacos, baja bowls, avocado dishes, ceviches and ahi dishes, all with a Caribbean flair using local spices, locally-caught seafood and locally-sourced herbs, greens and fruits. Our menu is designed with the intention for guests to share snacks or small plates before moving on to the rest of the menu.
Our bar menu offers a wide selection of house-crafted cocktails, beers, wines, and specialty drinks, including our world-famous Frozen Painkiller. Our innovative cocktails feature fresh squeezed fruits, muddled herbs and spices, house made sodas, liqueurs and syrups using real cane sugar. We highlight beers from around the Caribbean and a focused wine selection.
Owners Clint Gaskins and Tyler Beckstead fell in love with St. John (as many do) over a decade ago and always knew it would be the location of their first restaurant together. Originally from Charleston, SC, Gaskins is an industry veteran with over 17 years experience in high-end restaurants, bars and hotels. Beckstead has over 15 years experience in restaurants, bars and charter boat services in Charleston, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Bahamas and Hawaii. Chef Kenny Claxton heads up the kitchen, producing inspired dishes focused on Caribbean flavors. Claxton joins The Longboard after cooking at The Terrace on St. John for nearly 4 years. He loves working with fresh, local ingredients, brings serious talent and an expertise in creating a balanced fusion of cuisines to tantalize your taste buds. Their combined expertise offers up a knowledgeable team to bring a new drinking and dining option to Cruz Bay.
