Loved the casual side of the road "local" experience. The wait was a little longer than I had hoped, but then again, everything in the islands are slower. The peacefulness of sitting and having a beer while waiting on Johnny cakes and chicken was worth the wait. Chicken was SOOO good!

Great food, super folks and a nice beach! We enjoyed it so much that we went back a second time (would have gone a third but ran out of time).

This is our third time to Vies in the 25 years we have been going to St. John and we absolutely love this place! This is an absolute must if you are driving to the east end of St. John. Garlic Chicken, Johnny cakes, conch fritters, coconut tarts and one of the best beaches around. For a small fee you... More

The beach cost $2.50 to access, the only bathroom is an outhouse, and the beach is dirty. There is no shade. The employees at Vie's warned us angrily not to patronize the floating Bar or we would be asked to leave the beach area. I found Cinnamon Bay to be much more family oriented. I will never go here again..... More

This is a recommended stop and worth the drive for true authentic Caribbean food. The place is usually busy so be prepared to wait a little but you can pay $5.00/pp to access a beach nearby and use Vie's chairs too. I consider this a great "hole in the wall" and a true gem.

There were 4 of us, we paid admission to the private beach. It was very rocky and not very pretty. The best part was the floating bar that anchored off the shore. Went back to try the food, they only had baked chicken and hot dogs. We waited about 35 minutes for just 4 hot dogs, never again. We wished... More

When in Coral Bay we drove all the way to the East End. This is where Vies Shack is. Was a little early for lunch for us but decided to get an order of the conch fritters anyway. We tasted a couple and they were good.

If you are taking a drive around the island of St. John then you have to go past Vie's, STOP! This place has been there for years serving island food, jerk, sandwiches and more. It's also a good place to stop and have a cold beer and talk to the locals.
