We drove from from cruz bay to coral bay in the pouring rain to eat here. Although we were wet and cold the food did not disappoint. My daughter ate 2 orders of the wings. The chicken, rice and Johnny cakes were awesome. The staff was so nice.

When we arrived around 11:30 there were plenty of people already there. After ordering our food, we waited about 40 minutes for our meal. It is the best garlic chicken and johnny cake, hot and fresh. Worth a trip to that side of the island. I just did a write up on my blog with pics on my visit. winenchocolate... More

Go see this end if the island. Think Dory: just keep driving, just keep driving. Only a few menu items but they are traditional island food cooked with love and care by people that have been there forever. You can even pay a few bucks extra for beach access across the way.

Worth the ride out to the east end of St. John. Vie's has amazing chicken and johnny cakes. She was very pleasant. Go early though, we arrived around 2:30PM and were lucky to get the chicken as she ran out right after our order. Great place to goto if you are a Salt Pond or Maho in the morning and... More

We drove out to Miss Lucy's on our second day. Oh gosh, It was wonderful! I can not say enough good things about this. There isn't much of a menu to choose from, only 3 or 4 items. But everything we got was delicious. You must get the Johnny Cakes! And we didn't get any, but I later heard the... More

We love to stop at Vie's when we are on the East End of St. John, to enjoy a lovely location and some fantastic freshly prepared food. The menu is very limited, but that doesn't bother us at all. We come back for the garlic chicken every time and have never left disappointed!

A St. John landmark, Vie's is the real deal. An extremely limited menu, everything is made fresh as you order it. We loved our meal of garlic fried chicken, johnny cakes with honey, dirty rice, and conch fritters, and in combination with the drive out along East End, the entire experience made for a truly memorable day. Definitely recommended!

A shack it is but, a fun spot to take in the island spirit. Be prepared to have a wait for your meal (definitely island pace), with an outdoor picnic table dining experience. Very limited menu. Then why 4 stars you wonder. It just a fun little place with real island food and spirit. We tried the fried chicken dinner... More

Hansen Bay is a very beautiful spot to snorkel and to just lay on the beach. We saw four squids, some fish and a shark! Entrance has a $2,50 fee and you can stay as much as you want (from 10am to 5pm from tues. to sat.). We also rented two kayak ($18 for one and $30 for two). We... More
