Fun and delicious

Dining at Skinny Legs is an event. There is always a lot going on and a great place to people watch. Live entertainment is awesome. Burgers are great and the drinks potent.

Maybe all the hype had us expecting more, but this is essentially a beach bar/grill with a few touristy t-shirt shops attached. Went for lunch, and @ 1:30 they were slammed, waitress was stressed and warned us food would take a long time. Charred burger and hot dog were pretty good. Wonder if it would be more fun at night?...

You first show up and the parking lot is really bad. When you go inside its a great place to bring your kids and having a burger.

Skinny Legs is a great little bar and grill in the center of Coral Bay! GREAT FOOD!!! I'd give it an "excellent" rating, but it is just a bar and grill... The drive over from Cruz Bay consists of 153 turns/bends/ups and downs ... but it is highly recommended you come check it out!

Perfect way to end an afternoon at a nearby beach. Try the Painkiller and burger or even their beloved hotdog. Not much of a view, nothing fancy, but this place has earned its high rating time and time again.

For years this has been one of our must stops. Went there this year only to find disappointment. Food was below average, staff was meh....we later found out there were new owners? Not sure if that caused the change but we do miss the old food and staff.

As you drive by this place that looks like a tourist trap, you smell flame burning burger. Inside you have great service and bountiful drinks. Excellent blue cheese burger. Ask for many napkins.
