When our friends heard we were going to St. John we were told we HAVE to eat at Skinny Legs for burgers. The place was cute, very simple and open with chickens, cats, and wild donkeys roaming about. Drinks were good (Rum Swizzler and a Painkiller). The burgers were very lackluster. Mine was well-done, not medium. A place like this... More

When we first saw the menu of only sandwiches, burgers and chips, I thought we might only visit the one time. Well......the sandwiches are awesome! The drinks are refreshing and the atmosphere is fun and welcoming. We visited FOUR times and had a different sandwich/burger each time and each time we were not disappointed. For the most part, the wait... More

I am giving Skinny Legs five stars relative to other options in Coral Bay for families - solid burgers and chicken sandwiches, in a relaxing and fun atmosphere. Exactly what we were looking for in a lunch spot after a morning at the beach. Your kids will really enjoy it as well. A great experience overall, we went twice during... More

The cocktails...Painkillers and my personal favorite, the Bushwacker, are delicious and well worth the drive over to Skinny Legs. Delicious burgers and fun shopping in the little shops as well. Be prepared to see donkey, cows and deer on the way over.

I rarely write negative reviews but this place is over-rated. The burgers were charred until inedible. The waitresses were unhappy and seemed more annoyed than helpful. The gift shop has a cool selection but is very pricey. This is a hole in the wall tourist trap that I have no desire to return to.

Everyone who come to St. John hears about Skinny Legs. Come eat here the day you come to the east side. It's great after a snorkel trip and the donkeys on the side of the road make for a comical memory. The burgers are always great and there is no deep frying in the restaurant, so it smells like food.... More

Great drink specials, delicious burgers and fun atmosphere. Downside : Surprised that they don't improve the place a bit. The parking lot and road leading into the place need some major repair. Doesn't look like they have maintained the place at all. Also, surprised after all these years they don't update the kitchen to make fries....bag of chips is fine,... More

Staying in Coral Bay the smell of the burgers from Skinny Legs can be purely delicious. I'm not a big burger person, the the aroma makes you want one. My husband and I went to Skinny Legs and sat on the side of the bar that looks directly onto the grill. The patties were huge and the chef was generous... More

The menu was varied, but I had the burger and it was delicious: juicy meat and generous without being too large. As a female, I don't need a pound of meet to feel like I get my money's worth. Service was good and has that good island feel.
