Description: The Lime Inn restaurant is located in downtown Cruz Bay and has been a favorite between locals and visitors alike since 1984. Still owned and operated by the Meyer family (now daughter, Chelsea, and son in law, Richard) your St. John experience is not complete without a visit to our open-air, friendly, restaurant. We are known for our wonderful staff and delicious and consistent meals. Join us for our all day Happy Hour 11:30 AM to 5:30 PM, where our signature cocktails are $4 and Presidente Beers are $2. Fresh Grilled Caribbean Lobster is served daily along with our famous cracked conch, rum ribs, and house made pasta, just to name a few. You can also eat light with an awesome appetizer selection, fresh salads, and famous soups. No one can leave, either, without a taste of our famous Key Lime pie. We are open for Lunch Monday thru Saturday from 11:30 to 5, happy hour Monday thru Saturday 11:30 am-5:30 and Dinner Monday thru Saturday from 5:30 to 9:30. We look forward to seeing you!

This restaurant was recommended to us by other folks at our resort. When we got there, the service was marginal,at best. The food was OK but definitely not worth the price.

“One of our best dinners!”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We started our evening with happy hour at the Lime Inn bar. Tyler, the bartender was great and drinks were half off. The lime in the coconut was excellent. We were a party of 4 with no reservations yet got a table immediately when they opened at 5:30. The service was outstanding and the food was the best we had all week. I got the grilled grouper with scalloped potatoes and green beans. Our friends enjoyed their meals as well, steak and shrimp. The lobster looked really good but nobody at our table got it. This restaurant was recommended by the management folks that handled our villa. It was a great recommendation in my opinion. This restaurant is located in the center of Cruz Bay with a tropical setting. I would go there again and try the local lobster.

“Never disappoints”
Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

Locally owned and here forever, great friendly service and excellent food. We had Mahi grilled, a linguine special with fish calamari shrimp and mussels with mango chutney sauce, steak with shrimp and stuffed steak with crabmeat as entrees. All were excellent. Good salads although my Greek had too much liquid of the dressing so it was floating. Deserts were good, the key lime pie was frozen so not sure it was fresh but it was tasty. Wife had a chocolate brownie with ice cream she liked a lot. Very solid place for a group large or small!

Thanks so much for the great review and glad you enjoyed everything. The Key Lime Pie is 100% fresh and made in house (as are all of our desserts). We freeze it immediately after making it because the texture isn't conducive to the tropics, it changes texture so quickly, so frozen is the way we do it. Hope to see you again soon!

“the place to go for seafood and chocolate mouse!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

well prepared and tasteful seafood, portion size was a bit small compared to other places serving the same food on the island, but taste was excellent. Chocolate Mouse was really good too
