“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

This is a great restaurant. On the water, friendly staff, fresh food. We ate there 4 times on our vacation. Just one time a bit slow but with that view it did not matter. We will go back as soon as we can.

“great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

MISS Lucy's was the bed, most flavorful food on the island! Every dish we had was wonderful. The view from where we sat was breathtaking, facing the ocean just a few feet away. It is on the other side of the island from where we stay and down a long dirt road, but well wort h the trip. A car is a must for getting there.

“very good but....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

The food was really terrific. We each had a different fish entree, with veg, sauce and rice. Delicious and beautifully presented. Salad equally as pleasing! What suc---d for us was the service.
M---was hurried, rude and rushing around the whole time, making little eye contact, grabbing menus from our hands and slamming drinks and plates down. We can handle a long wait anywhere, when service is congenial, and engaging. Tell us we'll wait, tell us your slammed, make us laugh, and make us like you. Her female assistant was no better. It wasn't until the BT and other boys from the kitchen came out to help did we see polite and courteous service. We learned later from other wait stafff around Coral Bay, that the locals love M's behavior, and she takes pride in holding onto her NY state of mind. We were mightily turned off by it. Having said all that, the food was great, the drinks strong, the view fabulous , and the reggae excellent. We'll tolerate M if we must, but she could really learn a thing or two and increase her tips!

“Very good – with a pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This open air restaurant, located in Coral Bay, is right on the water of the bay and serves excellent Carribean syle cuisine. Two of our group ordered the avocado snapper and two ordered the blackened scallops, another had coconut grouper, two others had vegetable sides. The snapper was amazingly good – best meal I had on this trip. One who got the scallops thought they were excellent while the other thought they were just ok, commenting that the glaze was too sweet, while the other meals were very good with no complaints.

One caution – while it is perhaps a routine practice at most restaurants to add a tip for parties above a certain size, if you aren't used to it (because you don't usually have a large group), you can end up double tipping. So, check the bill before adding the tip. However, I can give kudos to Miss Lucy's. I added a tip (it was dark and hard to read the bill) only to discover later that the tip had already been included. Wasn't too disappointed since service was very good even though the waitress was very busy. But – upon checking my credit card statement – discovered that the restaurant had not added my tip to the charge. Thank you Miss Lucy's.

“Well worth a visit...don't miss the Sunday Jazz Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We visited a couple of times, just for lunch one day, then Sunday Brunch, both were excellent. The restaurant is in a great location right on the Bay, stunning views of course. Food reasonably priced (for St John) and well prepared and presented. Tuna Tacos recommended, as well as Pina Colada pancakes for Sunday Brunch.
