We are known for our wonderful staff and delicious and consistent meals. Join us for fresh grilled Caribbean Lobster or our whole jerk seasoned and pan seared snapper! You can also eat light with our selection of salads or our famous clam chowder. But don't forget, you can't finish up lunch or dinner without famous Key Lime pie.

Went while on vaca in St. John's. Fresh fish, good pasta dishes, and very friendly atmospere They will prepare fish any way you like. Chowder was awesome although on a hot day might not be a good choice.

“Worth the wait”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

First night out for dinner with Four. All you can eat shrimp Wednesday! I ordered the King Crab which was done well and served with scallop potatoes. Don't order all you can eat unless you are hungry. It comes as a healthy portion anyway. All you can eat is worth the 7.00 more if you like. Good drink. Great atmosphere. Busy!

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

The food was excellent, the staff was perfect and the atmosphere was just great. I would expect nothing more from my favorite restaurant.
We had a delightful evening and a great bottle of wine.

“Good food, friendly staff”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

Dined at the Lime Inn with a group of eight friends. Most of us really enjoyed our meal. Our complaints were few, and not entirely the fault of the restaurant. There was confusion on the prices of the dishes and drinks, therefore our bill was much larger than we expected. The $68 lobster tail was the best I'd ever had, however, we enjoyed ever more thinking it was only $34. Oh well. Servers were very quick and friendly. Had to wait an extra 20 minutes even though we had a reservation and were on time. I got the whole flounder and didn't think it was that great. Others had the tuna and mahi and said it was so so. The gazpacho was excellent.

Thanks for hanging with us. Glad your group was generally happy. Sorry you weren't a fan of your dish, we do serve a whole snapper so I think that is what you might have had. It is one of our most popular dishes, so I'm sorry it didn't seem up to par. We are very busy, it's been a great season! Hope to see you again!
