Burgers were excellent. Servers did a great job with a busy afternoon. Beer was cold, laid back Carribean atmosphere, great place.

Skinny's is an institution on the East End of the Island and rightly so. It is full of characters and on Saturday nights when we went great music from a local honkey tonk group. The food is great, the best burgers you will eat anywhere and the rum punch and beer flows freely. You need to go to join the... More

Can not go wrong eating here! Everything we got was good and we eat here twice for dinner. Fun atmosphere with great service. A must stop when in Coral Bay!

This great spot near Coral Bay on the opposite side of the island from the more populated Cruz Bay, is an diamond in the rough. We decided to try out Skinny Legs for lunch after spending the day at a beach near Coral Bay. At 4:00 in the afternoon, the paring lot was packed. We were a little worried that... More

This little place has terrific burgers but the BUNS they come on are fabulous! Is there a bakery nearby or where do they come from?! My burger was the pineapple special of the day, really unique and delicious. This is also a fun place to shop for hats and t-shirts, and to grab a Painkiller and watch basketball. Very casual...

4 of us rented a jeep and headed out to the east end of the Island and first stop was Skinny Legs. Really enjoyed the place. Got there just before a lunch rush. Had lunch and beers. Greek salad with Tuna, BLT (really large), fish tacos and fish sandwich. All excellent. Place has great vibe, friendly service and a great... More

This salty place is the quintessential island bar. Loved the rum punch and a Painkiller with a burger. Place is nothing fancy, roosters and cats roaming on the grounds, even looks like a junkyard, but that was part of the charm for us. Food and service good. Everyone looked happy eating and drinking. Will plan a trip back someday.

Cold beer, friendly staff, and good hamburgers. Near Coral Bay, there is nothing not to like about Skinny Legs for casual dining and drinks. Ate there twice on our recent trip and both sandwiches were good, especially the blue cheese burger. Had live music playing at a reasonable level so you could still talk. Overall, a good casual bat &... More
