This is one of the places you just have to visit. The food is good but it is a great place to just hang out with friends. Great stop after snorkeling at Salt Pond Bay.

Honestly, there was NOTHING wrong with this place at all. The service was good and we got good drinks and fantastic burgers. Unfortunately, with so many places we loved on the island, the ambiance here couldn't compete. Kind of like a tropical TGI Fridays feel?

We stopped for lunch after reading that they had the best burgers on St. John. Now, to be fair, I haven't had any other burgers on St. John... But the one at Skinny Legs was one of the best I've had anywhere. My wife and I ordered their daily special, which was a half pound burger with Swiss and bacon/onion-infused... More

We've been here several times on our trip to St. John. The atmosphere has a great island feel. Fun bar and restaurant. The food was great especially after a day at the beach & drinks with friends were just perfect!

This restaurant was amazing to us. Our poor baby came down with a fever the night before so eating out was not an option. The restaurant got our food ready to go quickly so that our little guy didn't have to be out too long. Their memorabilia was also very cool! So great food, service and kind.

Family passed down the vibes - still great (blue cheese) burgers and salads and the like. Not fine dining, but good food and great drinks. Near Coral Bay, so involved with local boating events. Lost Boston Marathon paraphernalia but Kentucky Derby lives on.

We visited skinny legs twice in 6 days. Both were good experiences. We first had the 1/2 lb burgers. They were so huge, we took some of the meat back to our rental and had burgers and eggs for breakfast. The next visit , I had the grilled mahi mahi. It was delicious. I love the homemade buns.

We enjoyed the drinks and food at Skinny Legs. It was a good place to go for lunch or a happy hour snack. Good burgers and fish sandwiches. Loved the mango painkiller. The bartenders were knowledgeable and took time to learn customers' preferences.

We stopped in here for lunch this week and had a quick lunch. It was decent but nothing amazing. The location was great for us, though, as we were staying towards the East End of the island.
