Great Burgers

The burgers here's are very good but would be even better if they lightly toasted the buns. The chili was good but would be better if they diced the onions much smaller

So I was driving around the island in a rented Jeep (which I highly recommend, btw), when we happened across this small restaurant. What a pleasant surprise! The entire town has a "surfer" atmosphere, though we so no waves. Skinny Legs is an open air restaurant (like many places on the island, no walls) with a nice atmosphere, giant pictures... More

My husband and I went here for lunch and dinner during our trip in April. Fun atmosphere. Very good service even though they're always busy. My husband said the specialty burger was excellent. I had the mahi mahi on a salad. The fish was excellent. Even though this is a bar and grill, lots of people brought their kids. Lively... More

Skinny Legs is a must do anytime you visit St. John. We usually venture over after a day at the beach. Our guests love the drive and seeing "the other side" of the island. Sam is our favorite server and she remembers us every year! The food is fantastic, the drinks are delicious and the shops surrounding the bar are... More

Quite the hike up if you're coming from the Cruz Bay side of the island. If you aren't close to this place I would definitely not recommend it because it's not worth the over an hour it took us to get there from Cruz Bay. But if you're in the area or staying close to Skinny legs I would say... More

Hi Maggie N, Thanks for taking the time to write this. We're sorry you didn't fall madly in love with us. We're thinking you must have stopped along the way from Cruz Bay a few times, as it should definitely not take an hour to reach us - it's more like 30 minutes, maybe 40 at most. We're glad you...

There is no wind at this very casual and laid back Coral Bay restaurant. I always enjoy stopping here on the other side of the island but it is relaxing and always fresh fish to boot... enjoy

Everywhere you eat on St. John Island is somewhat outdoors. Don't expect air conditioning and bring your own bugspray. Skinny Legs has great food and great drinks. Wait staff is excellent too! We eat here quite regularly when we visit the island.

While visiting with friends, we decided to stop in at Skinny Legs, as a party of 7. Even though the place was packed, the waitstaff accommodated us quickly and had drinks on the table in just a few minutes. Complex orders, allergies, and additions didn't phase the waitress, with correct orders arriving. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, and several stores to... More
