We went to Margarita Phil's because we met the owner and she gave us a discount card. We have to say that the work ethic of the one waitress was incredible! It was worth the visit to see her in action! Helen you have a jewel in her! The food was good too! The shrimp tacos were perfect! This is... More

The Margaritas are not tasty at all. Very watered down and just downright not good. There were 6 of us and we tried 3 different Margaritas and all decided we would not be back for more. (And they were expensive!!)

Expensive, no happy hour and very diluted margaritas, especially considering the name of the restrauant

We loved our food and our Margarita. Great server who was very personable. We shared the Fajita and purchased a side order of chips with it. It was very yummy. Not very busy and that is a shame.

Previous years, the food here was very good- but although our meals were ok this time- they weren't outstanding. The drinks were weak, and the veggie fajitas were primarily made from summer squash- not my favorite. The waitress was great, though!

Massive sized margarita, just right! I had the standard, wife had the mango, both good. A bit pricey but you only need one! Give it a try, the chalupas were outstanding too. Different presentation than expected. Upside down. Mine was Mahi, wife's was shrimp.

We stopped for a late lunch at Phil's - the place was empty at the time we arrived so we were a bit concerned. However, a few seconds after sitting down, our server came by and she was just fantastic. She made us a couple of special mocktails - something she created on her own - and they were soooo... More

Had some time to wait for the next ferry back to St. Thomas. Had just spent two hours on a bumpy bus ride [cruise ship's excursion] so were ready for some liquid refreshment. Enjoyed two of the local Virgin Island's brand beers. Also sampled the delicious cucumber jalapeno margarita. Interesting bartender shared her travel adventures and visa versa, so it... More
