My wife and I were in the mood for some different food. Phil's was perfect! I got the large margarita and it was delicious and more than enough to last through the meal. The chicken quesadilla was delicious as was the shrimp quesadilla.

We just got back from St. John. We took our 5 kids. We tried hard to find places to eat that would please everyone and not cost a fortune. Unfortunately, on the island that is difficult. We had a great meal here. Kids ate the nachos. We had Tuna tacos and a pulled pork burrito. It was all delicious and... More

Well my wife and I went here for lunch and it was the most expensive meal we had the whole time we were there. It was definitely very very average. The drinks were fine, the food was average, and the service was decent. However, for the price it wasn't great.

Great food, triple size margaritas for $15, and really friendly staff! We had a wonderful time spending happy hour here, sharing stories with fellow customers and staff. Couldn't ask for a better experience. We are Texans, so we know Tex-Mex and it was great. Definitely worth a stop. Disregard picky-picky reviews from others. If you want good food, good drinks,...

I've been to St. John about 6 or 7 times, and Margarita Phil's has always been on my rotation of favorite restaurants. This time we took our friends there and felt embarrassed that we recommended it so enthusiastically. We all got tacos that were very average. A day or two later after our friends left, my husband and I returned... More

I am so surprised to see so many negative comments on here about this place. We have been there at least eight times and every visit has been awesome - the tuna tacos are to DIE FOR and the margaritas ….well you only need one :-) Ha Ha. Last time there not only did Phil come out and greet us... More

We just got screwed here - $80.25 for 4 margaritas! Definitely got robbed. I don't recommend it. The margaritas were ok but definitely not worth the price! Feeling taken advantage of and will never return.

Our waiter had a little squirt bottle of water and was pelleting the baby chicks running all over the place Hilarious!!!! The guacomole was ok but not great. Beer was nice and cold.
