Banana Tree Grille

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas | (340) 776-4050

Banana Tree Grille

Located less than a hundred yards east of downtown Charlotte Amalie, Banana Tree Grille is on the premises of Bluebeards Castle, and is a logical choice for you to consider if you're visiting this part of the city and the immediate surrounding area. When it comes to specialty eclectic-inspired cuisine, the kitchen at Banana Tree Grille serves up an awful lot of seafood and steak. The Banana Tree Grille cooks to order dozens of tasty and juicy entrees. These include Angus Beef from New Zealand, veal, mahi-mahi, roasted chicken, and many other traditional dishes. As you can see, just because this is a steakhouse does not mean it can only cook steaks. With as many seafood options as beef, their selections such as orange ginger ahi-tuna and crab imperial stuffed grouper are some of the local favorites. After dinner, do not forget to try their famous Key Lime Pie or a glass of dessert wine.
