Banana Tree Grille

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

Banana Tree Grille

Banana Tree Grille, which is on the premises of Bluebeards Castle, is located toward the heart of Charlotte Amalie. Perhaps you could guess that this place is best known for eclectic food and of course seafood, but here they're also fawned-over for another favorite, 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.
