While on our Cruzan Rum tour and tasting, it was suggested to do our dinner at La Reine. Supposedly, Martha Stewart even ate there once! Fun, eclectic, a neighborhood hanging place! Great large serving of the half roasted chicken with rice, beans and salad. Ribs, goat stew and other items are on the menu. Full bar and music playing! Fun!

Found this place by asking islanders for a non-tourist local place. We were the only non-islanders there for lunch that day. The food was amazing. the prices were good. It was the standard by which that we measured all other restaurants. If you want high-end, catering to main land places, this is not for you. If you want excellent local... More

This is one of the most popular places with both the locals and the tourists. If you choose to eat in, there is limited seating with a bar adjoining. There are also picnic tables nearby. The chicken was tasty and well prepared and served with seasoned rice, beans and a salad. I also sampled the potato salad and cole slaw... More

The variety, the value, the atmosphere, the incredible flavor and the huge portions... My family eats at The Chicken Shack every time we are in STX and on multiple occasions. Some times they just go and order 20+ Johnnycakes for the day. You haven't experienced STX if you haven't eaten at The Chicken Shack!

We began our seasonal service to STX last week and were training a new staff. When we wanted some good local fare for dinner, they recommended in unison "Chicken Shack!". Festival was going on and the large crowds, loud music, and Coquito vendors were all going full tilt. We ordered the whole chicken, mahi, and kingfish. All were great. The... More

I read about this place on Martha Stewart's St. Croix blog and was glad I made the trip out here. Nothing is far on this island but this is inland in the center of the island. The place specializes in rotisserie chicken and is a favorite of locals and tourists alike. You order at the counter and then wait for... More

This place was recommended to us as a good place to get some eats on our way to the hotel. The food was excellent and service was good. We ordered pork chops, shrimp alfredo, and sweet and spicy chicken wings. The food was solid all around. They have a food order window and a pick up window. Go to the... More
