great food

Love going to Skinny Legs when we are on St John. The food and drinks are great and I love how casual it is there! Lots of great little shops around too that you can browse while you wait for your food!

We rent a Jeep when visiting St John and part of our stay usually includes exploring the island. We've made our way out to Coral Bay - about a 20 minute ride from the more tourist-active Cruz Bay area. We had been coming to St John in early September; a time considered 'off season' by many of the local merchants... More

What's all the fuss? The place is a dump. Piles of random stuff laying atound. no view no breeze hot, tacky, and nasty environment. Burgers were awful. Forget this one!

We were really excited to try skinny legs because of all the positive reviews. While the atmosphere was fun and inviting, and the drinks were strong, the burgers fell flat. It could have been the hype that let us down, but the burgers were overcooked and came on a bun that was much wider than the patty. The flavor of... More

I expected to love this place based on all I had read, all the hype and the fact that so many people put this on their list of places not to miss. There is a huge labyrinth of shopping opportunities on the exterior of the restaurant. I found the drinks lacking, the service lacking, the food nothing to talk about... More

We had burgers and drinks and it was all great! In fact, I came home and tried to recreate my burger with cream cheese, jalepenos and grilled pineapple. Not skimpy on the alcohol in their drinks either! Very good, reasonable prices!

We've been to Skinny Legs many times over the years, so on our most recent visit, we thought we'd try the Tourist Trap for something different. Well, see my separate review, as we'd not go back there. Its is different for sure, but how can you beat Skinnies? Yes, it is same day service. Depends on time of year and... More

This is a very laid back and casual place that my family visited twice during our one week stay in St John. The food and drinks were good, and the atmosphere was quite fun. We were there during soccer championships and the place was packed. The shops around the restaurant have a wide variety of t shirts, etc.

This place was worth the drive into coral bay. Very casual burger joint with a friendly staff. Good time with the family.

We love Salt Pond and Drunk Bay so we go several times a trip. When we do, our fave lunch is Skinny Legs. You know what you will get. A good burger with chips and a cold beer. Its easy, decently yummy and good for every one (important because we have picky kids). I get the special burger each time.... More
