This was one of our best meals on the island! We would have never even noticed this place if we hadn't done a local charter, TaylorMade,(btw, great charter!) Easily one of the best meals we had on the island. So full of flavor and tons of food. Johnny was so gracious and the service was awesome. Captain Dougie makes the... More

My wife and I were walking along the local docks when I noticed a restaurant packed with people who weren't tourists. It looked like a local community dinner - a church supper? When I stopped to look to see what they were eating, Johnny greated me and talked about the menu and the prices. I told my wife we would... More

We decided to seek out "Johnny B's" based on a recommendation from a local woman. We loved it! Red Snapper was delicous and perfectly done. Johnny was there and was a delight. Portions huge and the taste made me close my eyes it was So good. Johnny's mama's homemade hot sauce will heat your belly up for the rest of... More

This is the first of a line up of four restaurants next door to one another. We got the grilled chicken plate and wings to share. Being from Florida I was less than impressed with the wings we got considering the price, however our plate was worth every penny. This area of the island seems to be overpriced in general,... More

We had a chance to stop by the location of Johnny B's near the Simpson Bay bridge. From the other reviewers, I never knew that the lobster was the go to meal. I only knew the BBQ dishes for chicken and ribs which are great. We ordered the combo and both the chicken and the ribs were awesome. Huge portions... More

Whenever we are in town we head to Johnny B Under the Tree! His conch stew is out of this world! The ribs and johnny cakes and fritters, well, let's just say you can't go wrong! We have of course tried the fancy french dining in Grand Case, but by far, prefer the meals we get here in this nice... More

We had heard Johnny B's was famous for their lobster. I don't know if this place is associated with the Under the Tree LoLo but we thought it was, and since the LoLo wasn't open we went here. We ordered crab back and lobster and both of us thought we made it pretty clear it was one order of each... More

For many years my wife's family has been visiting SXM and eating at "Johnny B's Under the Tree." I ate there a few times with them and it was always very nice. This time while eating at the new spot in Simpson Bay it was a bad experience. No more do you choose your Lobster (it was good- my Dad... More
