We have enjoyed Ocean Grill for many years ....with our parents...with our children and with our friends.

It has been a special place for many...locals and visitors alike... wedding receptions, first meal on island, celebrations of all kinds...

We had a fabulous dinner tonight... it was bitter sweet as we looked around at so many familiar faces who came to say ‘Thank you’ to Ocean Grill for all the fabulous meals, warm hospitality and wonderful celebrations.

You will be missed!

Ocean Grill would like to thank all our customers for their support over a great 12 years. However, we are one of the many hurricane impacted businesses to face a tough business decision and we have decided to close Ocean Grill sometime next week.

None of us are leaving island. Just Beach and Leeward Islands Plumbing will continue to happily be open for business.

Thank you for a great 12 years!

We had our wedding reception here back in December of 2013, it was fantastic, and you will be missed!

Such a bummer to hear this. I had so many memorable nights there at the bar with you folks! Best Desserts ever and great company with your family! On to the next phase! You all can be proud of your contributions to St. John! Thanks!

I am so sad to hear this as Ocean Grille was one of our favorite restaurants to eat when we were on island. I have celiacs and it was always a safe place for me to eat. I wish you luck in all of your future endeavors.

So very sorry to hear this news. As you know Ocean Grill was Tom and my favorite eating places. You always made such great meals and we always felt like family. You will be sorely missed by many. Good luck in your future endeavors and God Bless You in all that you do.

We are going to miss our favorite go to restaurant Ocean Grill and Patty’s amazing desserts! Jim and I send our best to Patty, Tim and the wonderful OG staff!!

This is heartbreaking. We had the best wedding reception there in 2014. All of our guests loved it. We've been making it a point to come visit every 2 years. We came back in 2016 to some delicious food and had planned to visit again next month. I truly hope things start looking up for all the businesses in the USVI. We plan to live on St. John one day. Ocean Grill will be terribly missed.

I will miss the fantastic food and friendly staff. I will always have great memories of friends and family eating and celebrating there to cherish ❤️ Thanks, Ocean Grill.

Very sad Ocean Grill was always my go to place for special lunches- you will be missed especially loved your grilled salmon on my salads...all the best in your ongoing adventures the best is yet to come!❤️❣️

So very sad to hear this! We had a wonderful wedding reception there in 2011 and several amazing anniversary dinners too. Always the best service and food. Best of luck ❤️

We're so sad to hear this. We've enjoyed coming over the years for the amazing food, desserts, and steel drums. The Tahitian Vanilla Pots de Creme with the Cranberry Reduction will remain my favorite dessert EVER!

We are so sad to hear this. Ocean Grille is one of our favorite restaurants. John we wish you and your friendly staff the best. We enjoyed many wonderful meals thru the years.

This is so sad. We were just there in May and enjoyed a lovely meal there. It has long been one of our go to places when we were on island. You will be missed.

Heartbreaking. My husband and I will always remember that our favorite dessert we have ever had was there. A delicious pear tart with homemade ice cream.

Ocean Grill is one of my favorite places on island! It was my first job on St John and wedding reception. So so sad to see it go. Will come tomorrow to drink way too many back porch lemonades.

Oh man! I'm sorry Lollie and John! I know it wasn't an easy decision. Thinking of you as you think of your next steps! Love y'all!

I really think I need a Trunk Bay blue after reading this. So sad! This is our favorite restaurant on St John. We had our wedding reception there in Nov 2016. Ocean Grill would have been the first place we visited when we are on island in November...same as it has been every trip we have taken to the island. Thank you for the great memories!

Our favorite lunch spot sitting at the bar! Always our first recommendation when someone new to island would ask where to eat! Truly will be missed!!

I am so sad to hear this. We always looked forward to going to Ocean Grill a few times when on St. John. I’ve told so many people about your terrific chocolate peanut butter cake.

We are going to miss you. Ocean Grill was our go to restaurant all of your 12 years. Many gastro delights!! Will miss you, and mama's desserts,😪 and back porch lemonade. The best to you all. Am sure this was a difficult decision.

Thank you for making our daughter’s wedding reception (3/3/13) so special! 💗 We are very sorry for your loss, and I know she and her husband will be sad next time they come to St. John. We will always have fond memories of our time at your place!!

I’m so sad! Ocean Grill was such an amazing part of my St. John life. So glad you are all staying on island though! Sending lots of love to you and the amazing staff.

Sovery sorry to hear this! My favorite restaurant on St John. You always made your yummy coconut cake when I let you know I was coming. Very best wishes to you.

Thank you all for some special meals and good times with friends. We all understand these tough post storm decisions! Best of luck! Sad to see any of our great island businesses go...

So sorry to hear. But I thoroughly understand. Good luck and it’s been a pleasure eating and doing business with the Ocean Grill.

Best of luck with the next phase of your lives.We love Ocean Grill. The staff was always so accommodating our (then) baby, toddler, etc and that now 12 yo enjoyed another lunch there in February.Ocean Grill was always our groups last lunch on the island before catching Dohm’s water taxi from the NPS dock.You will be missed.
