Cane Bay Beach Bar
That kind of sucks; I was hoping for a step up
and no it does not add to the appeal of the place,do you even live here?
Let me explain about enjoying the clutter and general disorganized feeling around Cane Bay Beach. I lived several years in St Croix and many years in the states. I saw beautiful, but "undeveloped" areas in both places that were "improved" by development. This would be a classic ...pave paradise and ...parking lot..." Every time that I am on the beach at Cane Bay ( I don't go on weekends) I have enjoyed the people and the feeling. It is one of the nicest dive and snorkel beaches anywhere. I even enjoy MardiCroix and the mini gridlock with fun all around.
I suspect, you live in that area and you would like less traffic congestion. Can you imagine what it would be like to have hundreds of cars in parking lots with white lines keeping them in place. Hey, I drive through Christiansted to get home through jump ups, parades and sewage spills. Some people like everything to be organized and developed, but not me.
lol hbic,i'm a pretty happy guy believe it or not,there are aspects of life that i'm not happy about,i like my house,puttering in the yard my dogs and cats,books,movies my secret beach,i really try to keep my life as simple as possible,but i refuse to sugarcoat anything and i have some strong opinions
it must be a NIMBY thing with people from having lived in inner cities most of my life and when we moved here cane bay was pretty much empty unless it was season,it's odd because i don't feel that way when i'm in town or at work,just when i'm at home,STT drove me crazy when i wasthere for 2 months,too many people in too small and area,i hated it but my number 2 loves it over there,she'd be bored to death over here and of course the STT people on this must board love it as well or they would have moved over here by now
Has anyone had a sneak peek at their menu? Is the place still going to be a "beach bar"--i.e., will we be able to go up their from the beach, wet and sandy, and not get chased out? I'm really looking forward to having that spot operational again, but would be disappointed if it strayed too far from the casual beach bar format.
Bernie - No haven't seen menu but heard that it will not be a "gourmet" type but rather more like a casual format & a beach/bar type menu. I agree with your hope that this new place will allow walkups from the beach. New steps going from N Shore road up to the restaurant suggest that they will.
Frank was in today buying some food and gave me a snippet of info.
Menu will consist of braised meats, local fruits, pulled pork, brisket, and fresh made french fries to name a few.
Soggy is fine but no dogs allowed in the restaurant. But, there's a beach bar around the outside where you can get drinks, food, and dogs are welcome to hang out.
Go to StX restaurant ratings thread and look for comments about Eat@CaneBay. That is the restaurants name.
Eat should be a welcome change at Cane Bay. I think Zach is trying to also take orders on the beach and stuff so you don't have to even go up to the bar...saw him walking the beach and he dropped my wife's burger off to us on Saturday at our beach chair when we were up there. This is a great idea for drinks etc.!
My wife's burger looked really good, she enjoyed it but it was cold by the time she got to eat it due to having to nurse the baby.
