Beautiful beach, Best Fritters, wonderful friendly atmosphere! We were lucky enough to even chat with Miss Vie for a bit on our way out. She is a lovely woman. She is keeping it simple, life is good!

A repeat visit confirmed that Ms.Vie is still impressing with her homemade food. We love this roadside shack, our teens wolfed down the conch fritters and my husband and I enjoyed the meat sauce over the rice and beans. The mini homemade coconut pies were just the think to wrap up the meal. Communal picnic tables make it a great... More

I saw the negative review below and couldn't believe it! We were there on March 26th, the food was amazing (only thing local we could find), the people super nice! Loved the beach (we decided to stay ALL day). We even talked to Vie! She gave us her old sign to take home, it will get a good home! The... More

We were just driving around checking out Coral Bay and the East End and came upon this little low key spot. Lots of people from all over the world just hanging out and having an unbelievable meal. Great little private beach just across the road too!

We read the reviews about the conch fritters and decided to take the drive to Vie's for our friends last day on the island. Vie's did not disappoint! The fritters were the best we have had yet , the beers cold and the meat sauce with rice and beans was delicious. My husband dropped his beer on the ground and... More

The fritters alone are worth the drive. This was a highlight of our trip here. I'd been here 25 years ago, and it has not changed. We were not too hungry, so we passed on the chicken but everyone around us loved that too. A small menu done well is the hallmark of this place!

After reading and hearing about Vie's we planned our day to visit Vie's for lunch and a visit to their beach across the seat. Even though we got there fairly early parking was a challenge but we went past Vie's and over the hill a little and found a spot. We ordered our food first, which was going to take... More

After going to Sloop Jones, we wanted to stop for a drink and a snack. Vie's Sandwich Shack was nearby. Before we got to the place to order, we were surrounded with signs that said "No Tresspassing", Don't Park Here....there were a lot of restrictions. When we came up to the Shack to place an order, a surly fellow was... More

My first visit to Vie's Snack Shack was 25 years ago, when Vie herself ran the shack. Back then, the shack was open whenever Vie felt like it, and I was lucky enough to catch it most every time I was on the island. Now, years later, the shack is run by her daughter, and she keeps regular hours...something the... More

Wonderful place to kick your shoes off and enjoy like a local, share a table and eat the good stuff. When you are done you can pay a small fee to wander to a paradise beach beyond the fence. It has been here forever and Vie knows what the good food is. We LOVEd this place and will be back... More
