Every time we are in St.John we visit Skinny Legs. They have the best burgers. I usually get the blue cheese burger. It's a must when on the island. Also very cool shops.

This is an open air bar with a selection of American 'diner' fare. We ordered a burger and jerk chicken wings. Both dishes were cooked well and served in plastic trays with extra napkins. Solid choice if you're on the east end of the island.

Cool spot. Good to stop at if you are on the East End. We had the burgers, which were good. They don't use a fryer and they pride themselves on it. No ocean views. Kinda of run down, but NOT in a good "beach bar" kind of way. There is LOTS of shopping at this restaurant, too. Souvenirs, t shirts,... More

Had a nice light lunch. First time in Coral bay. Had to go to the "Skinny Legs" so my husband could get a t-shirt that describes him. Food was good surprised to go to a bar that doesn'thave a deep fryer, but we managed to find something to eat. ;-) Watch out for the large herds of donkeys and goats... More

We rented a jeep and ventured to the other side of the island. We stopped by Waterlemon Cay for snorkeling and then on to Coral Bay. (driving on the opposite side of the road is challening -- just repeat shoulder to shoulder to keep you on the right side). We had a burger at Skinny Legs. it is the cutest... More

Had an awesome lunch (blackened Mahi-Mahi on roll) followed by insanely good keylime pie and a rum brownie. Fun place - don't miss if you are near Coral Bay.

Skinny Legs appears to be a landmark eatery. Maybe in part because there isn't much else nearby. We had chili dogs with cheese @ fries. Tasty quarter pound hotdog and mildly spicy great chili. Recommend they install a couple of fans to move air around. When air was not moving, it was very hot.

Skinny legs is a great blend of locals and tourists. Food is always good and the conversations better. We typically go to Skinny Legs for the over the top burger of the day and follow-up with a few painkillers. Great shops to browse, generally a fun place. Beware-parking can be interesting!
