This was a great dive bar, with a really friendly staff, fun atmosphere and great food. Family friendly too. Nice to look around and see the US sports paraphenalia around

By the time our name was taken, and our food was served, two hours had elapsed. We were told when we arrived, that it would be 35 minutes before we were seated. The food was average at best. Unless you want to spend an afternoon waiting for a hamburger, I would recommend finding another place to eat.

We stopped by Skinny Legs three times during our stay-two for lunch and once after our Lap of St John tour with Busy Bee for a drink. Each time we split the burger special, which was just enough for lunch. Had fun browsing through the multiple shops and left with some local hot sauce and a funky t shirt.

Nothing to dislike here, food is good, prices fair, atmosphere very casual and funky. We go there at least once or twice a trip. It's a hike unless you're staying in Coral Bay, but worth it. They have no fryer or blender tho, and boast about it. Drinkers are shaken and hot food is grilled.

My daughter suggested this place for lunch on our day trip to St. John. It was packed when we got there which was a good sign the food must be good. It was but due to volume the service was slow. They were extremely friendly and worked as fast as they could under the circumstances. There was no beach so... More

Excellent stop for lunch after snorkeling or hiking at Salt Pond, burgers are giant and very tasty. Prices are good too. Highly recommend it. Place was very busy, be prepared to wait a bit if busy, small grill is behind the bar, two people working super hard to keep up with the volume of orders. Worth the wait, have a... More

Are you looking for a funky spot that serves great burgers (even if they proudly don't serve french fries)? Well Skinny's is the place for you. Drinks were really good and the burgers were as good as they always are. It is a bonus that there is definitely a connections to the Northeast represented at the bar!

I was in Coral Bay for over a week and ending up at Skinny Legs 3 times. Locals love this place because it's easy, reasonably priced and fun. I had a mediocre Mahi Mahi salad one night and great fish tacos another. So not the most amazing food - burgers are supposedly terrific (i don't eat burgers) drinks were good... More
