This is a very friendly place in Cruz Bay. The owners/chef come from Dominica, and this is the real thing. We had kingfish creole and shrimp creole, each with five sides, including fungi (had never tasted before). Everything was excellent, but avoid the white wine, and buy a beer instead.

We visited Sogo's for the first time for lunch last week. The owners are sweet, hard working people and they are really welcoming. We ordered the Kingfish special and it was good.

This place had really good local food - with local ingredients - and such a friendly atmosphere. We felt more like honored guests than tourists.

We try to eat local food when we travel. Sogo"s is on a side street in Cruz Bay. It looks like it might be a bit warm inside but they have plenty of fans running and it was quite comfortable. My husband had the goat stew and I had a chicken special. Both were very good. Price was great and... More

Not gourmet but affordable and very tasty home cooked meals. Even my kids were happy with the selections. I like that there was a little bit of everything on my plate. We were the only diners there for a late lunch so that didn't make us want to linger for long but the food was good and was a great... More

We go to Sogo's each time we come to St. John and it is great as always. This time my wife had the fried chicken--about the best we have ever had (except for Mrs. Wilkes' in Savannah). We have arranged for a take out order for this wonderful chicken for our final meal here on Friday before heading home. Again,... More

My grandson Dominic enjoyed the hamburger and fries and I the linguini with shrimp and vegetable and cream sauce. I introduced Dominic to Conch Fritters, which he also enjoyed. Dominic had a fruit punch which he enjoyed, We were served by Sogo's wife, who never hesitated to see if we needed anything more. Many people don't know, but Sogo worked... More

I came with family and if you'd like some real local west Indian food this is the place for it. Owners are very nice a attentive. I really enjoyed a nice drink called Bushwacker and the roti was excellent as well.

Don't be deceived by the outward appearance of this small restaurant. I have always wanted to try this place & I am so happy I did! I had the Jerk Chicken & this was by far the best meal I had on St. John. Reasonably priced & family owned. Great service!! The jerk chicken was served with steamed zucchini &... More
