The food and service was were pretty good (my husband really liked the blackened fish sandwich), but the restaurant was so loud we opted to sit outside. It took awhile for us to get served, but once we did, the service seemed pretty good. Parking is hard when it's busy and open air taxis will often park behind other parked... More

Our party of four returned from St. John on 01/24/15 and we absolutely loved Skinny Legs, or "Skinny's" as referred to by the locals. It became our go-to place and really enjoyed the live music. I am a vegetarian and the veggie burger Rueben was fabulous- had it three different times in the week we were on the island. The... More

Jimmy Buffett must have been thinking of this place when he wrote that famous song. The food is great and so is the crowd. Lots of laughing and good cheer. If you come in a bad mood you won't leave with one.

After the 8 Tuff Mile race Skinny Legs provides a euphoric atmosphere for the loneliness of man kind. Got a problem? Open a Red Stripe, talk to anyone standing next to you and guess what? There is no problem. One of my top 100 sports experiences in a bar around the world. 2015 - 3 of us have a $20... More

Fun, fun, fun - and lot's of great music. There isn't much more to say! Burgers are great, the people are great, the drinks are . . . strong :) Oh, and if you're a sports fan, there's always some game or other on the t.v. !

Skinny Legs is a restaurant with big screen TVs behind the bar. The first time we went there the TVs were showing sporting events, which did't add any atmosphere, but didn't ruin our experience either. The second time we went, we spent our entire meal just wanting to get out of there. We should have walked out before ordering food,... More

We've been to Skinny Legs numerous times over several trips to STJ. It'a great spot for a quick lunch or a few drinks in the evening!

My husband said that his bacon cheeseburger special was the best hamburger that he ever had! I had a bite and it was like Heaven. I had already ordered a Mahi Mahi salad so I had to stick with that. I was pretty good too. The salad was fresh and the fish wasn't too fishy. We love looking at all... More

Great place to watch the game on the east side of the island. No weak drinks here. They showed the game with a projector on a huge sheet out on the patio beside the restaurant. Great food for the price. Atmosphere was wonderful. Earlier in the day had a great trip with Hidden Reef Eco-Tours, ask for Michelle or Corey.

We went with friends that raved about Skinny Legs. The hamburgers looked good and beer prices were cheap. Domestics $3 (Bud Coors etc), Imports $3.50 (Heineken, Becks), Crafts ($4 (Island IPA). Painkillers were good but small. So what more do you need? We were there on a weekday afternoon and it was pretty slow. No music. Pretty dead. On a... More
