This is an easy-breezy choice, an open-air restaurant that sits right on the boardwalk with sunset views of the Christiansted harbor. The ambience is pure Caribbean—with waves rolling in in the background and pelicans wheeling above. During Sunday brunch a steel band plays. As for the food, it’s surf and turf, from grilled New York strip steak to broiled whole lobster to meltingly tender baby-back ribs slow-cooked in island spices and Guinness. The bartender whips up some minxy drinks, or you may want to stop by for the $2 beer deals at happy hour.
