I'm from Ca. so maybe my standards are too high but this has got to be the worst mexican food I've ever had. I was craving mexican food after being on island for 3 weeks so decided to give it a try, but wish we hadn't. I hear that they have good margarita's but I didn't have one so I can't speak on that. If you've had good mexican food before, you'll be disappointed at Margarita Phil's.

Went here after the beach today ... Nachos were delish for $15 ... But $25 for 2 mojitos and a virgin strawberry daiquiri? Especially when there are $3 happy hour drinks down the street. Skip the cocktails, but try the food.

This is a great restaurant. Very laid back and great menu- ask for the seared ahi tuna tacos off menu.

I always enjoy the staff here. Unfortunately, this time, the staff was not having a good week. The service was slow, the famous margarita was not as fresh and the pour was stingy. I think Phil needs to bring back former employees and let his place shine again.

We enjoyed a fajita dinner, and thought the food was excellent. The gentleman who waited on us could not have been more friendly, and went out of his way to accommodate me as a vegetarian. The vegetables were crisp and fresh and the guacamole was delicious. The frozen margarita was made just right. Highly recommended!

The Ahi Tuna tacos have always been a favorite ! We have a house on St. John and have been coming to the island for 22 years..... During our most recent visit to the restaurant, Phil was there and the restaurant was humming !
We tried & liked the Cheeseburger Tacos & Carnitas Burrito w/fresh pineapple salsa.... YUM!
There is always a Margarita of the day..... I had the frozen strawberry w/fresh basil ! My regular is the fresh tangerine!
I must confess that our bar bill is usually higher than our food bill! This could indicate a beverage problem on OUR part....
but It's the Island Mon.....
