We made a day trip to the east end of the island and had a wonderful day at Vie's beach. We ordered the garlic chicken and loved it! Everything was freshly prepared and the people running the snack shack were very friendly. We enjoyed eating on the beach and would recommend this as a great day trip. Well worth the... More

Worth the ride out to the east end of St. John. Vie's has amazing fried chicken, rice with meat sauce (my fave) and johnny cakes. She was very pleasant as was her son (or grandson, not sure). Go early though, we arrived around 10:30 AM and placed our order, came back from the beach at 1 pm and ate or... More

Had dinner here on our last day on St. John. It had been recommended by a friend and I saw mentions of it everywhere (it was the only restaurant mentioned in the guidebook, "Off the Beaten Track", and was in several other tourist brochures as well). I was not disappointed! The food is all made-to-order and the chicken came out... More

Vie's is well worth the short drive from Cruz Bay to Coral Bay, on St. John, USVI. It's a cute, little "shack" that has "the best" food on the island! Everybody knows Vie! She is well known for her conch fritters that are deep fried to a golden brown and are served with a little bit of slaw that is... More

A nice little drive from Cruz Bay to Vie's Snack Shack on the other end of the island. About 12 miles, almost the length of the St. John island. Vie's has only outdoor seating. The conch fritters and garlic chicken have one-of-a kind tastes. And her tea is such a thirst quencher. You got to go early because there is... More

The drive to the east end can be challenging but also fun and there are always interesting things to see along the way. Vie's is one of the places you don't want to miss. Had the delicious garlic chicken but it was rice and beans that I couldn't get enough of. The Johnny cake was great and we shared a... More

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.
