Description: Miss Lucy's offers a true taste of old St. John with fresh and flavorful Virgin Island cuisine plus unforgettable views! The flavors of St. John are unlike any others and we love to share them with our guests. From steamed clams to our West Indies fish fry or a juicy rib eye steak, we have something for everyone! We recommend Miss Lucy's Famous Paella with its fresh shrimp, scallops, clams, chorizo, and spicy pulled jerk chicken served over saffron rice. It's truly a dish that you'll always remember! Or join us for our incredible Sunday brunch featuring classics like eggs benedict or Miss Lucy's signature piña colada pancakes with pineapple, bananas, and toasted coconut. And don't forget to complement your meal with a beer or craft cocktail from our full service bar! Enjoy your brunch, lunch, or dinner on our outside patio with sweeping views of St. John's beautiful beaches as you listen to live music nightly or soothing jazz with your Sunday brunch. Miss Lucy's looks forward to helping you enjoy your time in St. John with incredible cuisine and an inspiring environment!

Reviewed February 16, 2012

the food and unique character of this place is well worth it.
we were told we'd wait , and we did. don't go if your in a rush, period.
you'll miss the charm, and likely a very enjoyable dining experience.
beats shipwreck, unless of course, thats your thing.

We had heard a lot about Miss Lucy's being a must eat at place on the island. My husband and I decided to eat there for our anniversary/Valentines Day; what a horrible end to a perfect. We went to the bar area when we first arrived since the limited sitting that they had were taken. We were greeted by a very rude bartender, which maybe should have been a sign. We waited a short time for setting to be available and then waited FOREVER before the waiter even acknowledged us; again rude, short and generally bad service. We proceed to order the conch chowder (very over priced), mussels and scallops. After another long wait our chowder arrived cold.....and then we waited some more. I finally asked our waiter about our other items we had ordered; again rude and we were basically told that he was busy and we would just have to deal with it. Once others, that had arrived after us, started receiving their dinners and desserts I had finally had enough! I asked the waiter for our bill and decided to cut my loss. Waiter was very rude at this point, as was the manager, not to mention that we ended up paying 32 dollars for two bowls of COLD chowder and two drinks and didn't get the correct change back!

Very relaxing and great food. Loved being able to sit by the water, with that tremendous view, having a cocktail and enjoying local West Indian cusine.

“Best Dinner on the Island”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

We nearly missed the entrance (with a car on our tail around the curve) but were happy to find this gem. After a goat greeting on the patio with its gorgeous views, we opted to sit inside with the threat of rain and wind. We were early for dinner (about 5:30) and chicken items were not available yet. No problem. We had the most delicious conch fritters to start along with a very good Kallaloo (sp.?). We all chose the lightly fried grouper - large portion and done to perfection, fried plaintains (I'm drooling just thinking about them), johnny cakes and assorted veggies. Our very pleasant and attentive waiter soon became very busy as he was the only waiter for maybe 10 tables! so we were really happy we arrived early. It's very casual so don't dress up! but more importantly, put this restaurant on your "must do" list.
