Best conch fritters in USVI

We were planning on visiting Tortola with our kids, ages 12, 8 and 2, when it started to rain and thought it better to stay on St. John, so we took the rental Jeep to the East End and visited Vie's based on some online review. OH WOW, SO GLAD WE DID. I was hoping for garlic chicken and Johnny... read more

This place is truly a shack with one outdoor table and one cook. We had conch fritters and garlic chicken with johnny cake - both delicious! Vie also makes homemade tarts. We tried the coconut and the pineapple, baked in cookie crusts. They are incredible and Vie is very accommodating.

Vi's is an institution on the East End of St. John, USVI. It is literally a wooden shack next to the road and Vi has been serving garlic chicken, island rice and johnny cakes for at least 25 years. Day visitors from the cruise ships in St. Thomas, come over to St. John, rent a car in Cruz Bay and... More

This place is worth the drive all the way to the East End. We got the chicken and fried bakes (she calls the Johnny cakes) and the conch fritters. Good price and plenty of food. Her pepper sauce was delicious and she served the conchs with honey which was a really nice touch. We will definitely be back.

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
