We loved our food and our Margarita. Great server who was very personable. We shared the Fajita and purchased a side order of chips with it. It was very yummy. Not very busy and that is a shame.

Massive sized margarita, just right! I had the standard, wife had the mango, both good. A bit pricey but you only need one! Give it a try, the chalupas were outstanding too. Different presentation than expected. Upside down. Mine was Mahi, wife's was shrimp.

We stopped for a late lunch at Phil's - the place was empty at the time we arrived so we were a bit concerned. However, a few seconds after sitting down, our server came by and she was just fantastic. She made us a couple of special mocktails - something she created on her own - and they were soooo... More

Had some time to wait for the next ferry back to St. Thomas. Had just spent two hours on a bumpy bus ride [cruise ship's excursion] so were ready for some liquid refreshment. Enjoyed two of the local Virgin Island's brand beers. Also sampled the delicious cucumber jalapeno margarita. Interesting bartender shared her travel adventures and visa versa, so it... More

We tried Margarita Petes. Very expensive and the good was not worth it. Margs were simple. Would not recommend especially for families $$$$$

The food at Margarita Phil's was good, and this would be a good restaurant if you must have Mexican while on your trip to St. John!

Huge margarita, watered down-overpriced. Wife had fajita said it was really good. I had salad it was okay. Spicy food, need water, "Tap water no good, only have bottled" $3 later for 30 cent bottle. You want to use charge, another Dollar. Enough said?
