Great meat sauce/chili

The chili is really good. Wish they gave you more. Best conch fritters in St. John too. Chicken also good. Order at the shack, pay Vie $5 and go across the street to the beach to enjoy lunch.

This was our first visit to Vie's and definitely not our last. We specifically drove there to try the conch fritters. They were delicious. Nice and moist, and very flavorful. Their homemade hot sauce is phenomenal. They would make a killing if they bottled it. It is that good. The service was nice and friendly. We also happened to see... More

The chicken, the fritters, the rice & beans and the tarts. All beyond compare. You MUST rent a car to get there, but it's worth every mile.

We love Vie's! We were so excited to return for her rice and beans, only to learn that the off season menu doesn't include that item. We did order garlic chicken( the last piece of the day), wings, and Johnnycakes. The wings had the same batter as the garlic chicken so you could order those if you prefer white meat!... More

Spent the day at Vie's beach. Walked up to the snack shack which is located on the side of the road. Best Conch Fritters I have ever eaten!!

Finally made it to Vie's on our trip last week and we weren't disappointed. The conch fritters were light, fluffy, and flavorful. The fried chicken was perfect. Vie's is definitely worth a stop.

We were just exploring the island on an overcast day and came upon Vie's. We ordered garlic chicken, johnny cakes, and had two pieces of pie. Food was delicious! We walked out onto the beach by but didn't do any snorkeling. We would definitely return here!

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
