All four of us enjoyed our food. (I had the veggie burger.) I encourage you to try the Mango Painkiller. It was delicious!

We all had a good meal here, except for my husband. The other four of us ordered their special of the night, a hamburger with a mango chutney and as far as I know, everyone really liked their sandwiches. My husband, however, found his fish sandwich to be dry and sauce free and wished he had ordered the same thing... More

Enjoyed the ambiance and the food was pretty good. However, the service leaves something to be desired. The server was seemingly uninterested in our party of 10 people...and walked away mid-sentence several times and we had to track her down to finish our request. There was only 1 other group in the place, so I am pretty sure she was... More

Great place for a burger and a bit of an outing. Totally laid back, delicious burger, good drinks, cute shopping, kids can play and have a hula hooping competition! Bring big spray- mosquitoes were rough this trip, but not as bad two years ago when we were there.

Year after year we return to Skinny's, but staying on the East End this year we definitely made it a regular stop during our two week stay! Hands down best burgers on island and in my opinion best painkiller! Kids love it - we love the easy vibe. Thanks Skinny's for being the same year after year!! The one thing... More

My husband and I stopped in to Skinny Legs after a full day of snorkeling on the East side of St. John. The burger was delicious and the environment is fun. If coming from Cruz Bay, the drive out to the restaurant is an experience itself. You'll probably see the wild donkeys, although they are pretty friendly and there are... More

Yummy burgers and hotdogs. Affordable mixed drinks for a great stop for lunch. The menu is pretty limited to sandwiches and a few salads. We had to send our burger back because it was rare, but it was no problem. It was amazing! There are no blended drinks at this restaurant. That would be the icing on the cake. That…... More

I have been going to "Skinny Legs" for lunch + dinner ever since I started going to St. John in the late 80's. My father lived on the East end of St. John and it was HIS favorite for years. It is an earthy, typical islands kind of beach eatery. Except that it's at the head of Coral Bay and... More
