Wife and I had a great time on St. John! Loved Coral Bay! Best part of Coral Bay is CASES BY THE SEA!!!..... and the place across the street... :-) Extremely friendly people, donkeys, and goats (no [--]!). Good cheeseburgers, beer, and liquor, all at a reasonable price for such an expensive place! Best part's hangin out w/ the people... Like the two dudes I met w/ the dreads that work there. They were awesome! CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK NEXT YEAR!!!!!! (hopefully stay a lil longer)....

“Great people, great food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

While the place may not look fancy we've had a great experience. Just had Reggie cook us up ribs and a burger that were wonderful. They also serve chicken and steak. Drinks at a good price. Wished we had stopped in earlier on our trip.

“Reasonable price, local food, friendly local people.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

This is the only restaurant for local food in coral bay. They have grilled steak, chicken and ribs. The price is around $20 but the portion is big enough for two people. Very tasty food. The people who hang out at the bar may be a little bit too friendly to girls. But they are nice people.

“Fun spot to hang out in Coral Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

We visited Cases several times during our recent visit, highlighted by a fantastic concert by the Morgan O'Kane band. During the day, cases is a low key, low stress place to relax and grab drinks while soaking up the Coral Bay atmosphere. On site, there is a BBQ restaurant with great food. In addition to the walk up stuff, they can order beer, wine, and liquor for villa provisioning. The concert at Cases was an absolute blast! Can't wait to be back.
