Off the beaten track, this nice little outdoor restaurant in Coral Bay is worth the trip. We had a huge plate of nachos with pulled pork (the smoking of this pork was done beautifully) and a hamburger. Great drinks, fun service, outdoor breezes and clearly a locals favorite. Perfect stop while in the Coral Bay area, plus you can buy... More

We really enjoyed Skinny Legs. I probably over enjoyed their drink of the day! I think it was a pain killer or something similar. Anyhow it was quite good. I had a grilled fish sandwich which was good, however they are best known for their burgers. A couple of folks in our party had those and really enjoyed them. Anyhow...visit... More

Skinny's is a great Coral Bay hang-out, known for its burgers, but my fave is the grilled cheese, tomato and onion sandwich (the GTO).

We enjoyed a Skinny Legs' burgers lunch recently, and I have to say I was so surprised that same day service has vastly improved! Wow! We had our lunch in no time flat, and it was juicy, hot, and delicious! I do wish that the key lime pie wasn't frozen. Other than that, great lunch, and many thanks!

My title pretty much sums it up. If you're coming by for mostly drinks, atmosphere, and socializing this is the place. It appears popular with the local crowd. The food was "meh" but everything else was great. There's also an abundance of t-shirt and souvenir shops surrounding the place to browse through. The service was very friendly. We had a... More

This place has the best hamburgers on the island. The place has open air seating with great food and strong drinks. My wife and I love to visit this restaurant/ bar when ever we come to St John

Great lunch & great atmosphere. Experience the Coral Bay vibe at Skinny Legs! If you're staying in Cruz Bay, take a drive to the East End & see the other half of St. John. Also this is a great stop after a day at Lameshur or Salt Pond.

It is an island tradition to go to Skinny Legs. The food is good, burgers great, and is a casual friendly place. We have had sketchy service in the past but earlier this month we went and things were great. There was a guy that had a small dog on a leash but he was sitting on the stairs. The... More

Great daily specials. Great burgers. Great service. What else do you need? Try the brownie for dessert, you won't be disappointed.

Stopped by for lunch while exploring St. John. The place has island character in a funky way. The "compound" includes a number of gift shops. Food was casual but tasty.
