    Woody's: Best Bar Burgers

    by vanderlust Written Mar 9, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Woody's is a great place to chill after a day at the beach or from a long trip to the island. Open late, cold beer, can be mild or wild depending on the day/ night/season.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite place for a burger and a cold beer after a long day on planes and ferries. We usually arrive on island, meet our villa greeter, drop our luggage off at the villa, return to Cruz Bay to shop for groceries at the Starfish Market, then drop by Woody's for a burger and beer.

    Skinny Legs: Great people (and hamburgers)

    by islamonroe Written Nov 18, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Skinny's always has a burger special and they are always great- the blue cheese burger was my favorite.

    The bar is all open air and includes a horseshoe pit and dart area for entertainment. The locals and wait staff are very friendly and it is a great spot to watch the local news or football game.

    Local donkeys are usually hanging around and there are a few shops (and an internet bar) connected to the main bar if you feel like shopping.

    They have a great website with lots of local information.

    Over all it's a pretty OK place.

    Favorite Dish: Our favorite was the thick, rich chili- served with, chips, pickles, jalipenos, onions and cheese!
    washed down with a cold 2$ Presidente.

    The Fish Trap Restaurant: Seafood and tropical drinks!

    by allenk_007 Written Jan 5, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I happened upon the Fish Trap by accident while wandering around Cruz Bay. I happened by several more times on other trips to the island, quite on purpose.

    The covered patio setting and a tropical drink or two in the open air, with good food makes this a very nice dining experience whether for a couple or a group.

    Favorite Dish: Blackened Shrimp
    Seafood Kabobs

    The Pavilion: The Pavilion at Maho Bay

    by pabertra Written Jan 2, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Pavilion doesn't have the best food on the island, however it does have a lot of options and a great view. Every night the restaurant has around 5 entrees written on a blackboard, one of which is always vegetarian. Along with your entree you get access to the salad bar, rice, coleslaw, and a dinner roll. If you are not terribly hungry you can just get the salad bar. This place is located at the Maho Bay campground so I ended up eating there out of convenience. I really recommend trying any of their seafood dishes. The shrimp they make is out of this world. I also tried the baked chicken, which was just average.

    Favorite Dish: I prefer to just stick to the salad bar, but the shrimp was EXCELLENT!

    The Balcony: Fresh Seafood With A View

    by pabertra Written Dec 27, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Went to this place on a recommendation and was able to try both the Roast Beef of Tenderloin and the Caribbean Bouillabaisse. The service here was nothing fantastic as like most places on the island the servers are college age adults who have just come to work short term so they can stay on the islands. The atmosphere was great with a spectacular waterfront location and view of stunning Cruz Bay. Remember you are by the ocean and your best bet is seafood, so I wasn't that surprised by the lackluster Roast Beef of Tenderloin, but I cannot rave enough about the amazing Caribbean Bouillabaisse!

    Favorite Dish: The Caribbean Bouillabaisse was EXCELLENT! It is mussels, clams, shrimp, and the fish of the day, which was mahi mahi in a lovely tomato based broth. This is definitely a dish worth returning for and the BEST meal I had in all the islands. The other seafood entrees looked excellent as well if bouillabaisse isn't your thing.

    Voyages: Go for jazz night

    by islandtaryn Updated Jul 20, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Voyages seems oddly out of place. The tourist center of the island is Cruz Bay, located on the opposite side of the island. Maybe the more remote setting is what prompted the owners to choose this location.
    Whatever the reason, Voyages is a great excuse to drive across St. John. The view from the dining area is spectacular and the food good.
    There are regular live music performances, especially when tourist season is at it's peak... jazz night is my favorite.
    So... have a bite, sip some wine, listen to the local talent, and maybe make some new friends.

    One word of caution, the mosquitoes can be brutal. Ask your server for repellant if necessary and make sure your table has citronella candles .

    Favorite Dish: It's all been good.

    ?: the local "Rastarant"

    by islandtaryn Written Jul 12, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Cruz Bay side of the island is where most of the restaurants are. I want to let you know about the local "Rastarant" in Cruz Bay. If you are acquainted the the Rasta culture at all you will know that they practice vegetarianism as part of their belief system.
    I had the best curried tofu I have ever eaten at this place. The food is cooked in massive clay pots. Do go early as the curried tofu seems to be the first thing to sell out.
    Truly a slice of authentic island culture. The Rastas told me that this is "fyah" food, I haven't been able to determine what the "fyah" (fire) reference means but it is often mentioned in reggae music.
    Any Rastas out there who can enlighten me?

    Favorite Dish: Curried tofu!

    Margarita Phil's: The best nachos this side of Mexico

    by dharmabum222 Written Aug 28, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A small and colorful little establishment that serves a grande margarita that will knock your socks off! We ordered an array of typical mexican delights and were thrilled which each selection.

    Favorite Dish: The nachos were divine! In addition to your typical corn tortilla chips (in blue and white) they fry triangles of flour tortilla and throw them in to the mix. Excellent!

    Miss Lucy's Restaurant: Best Beachside Dining With View

    by Freebeacher Updated Feb 20, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miss Lucy's is located on the quaint Coral bay side of St. John, about 2 miles south of the juntion of the road from Cruz Bay. The ambience is quiet and relaxed. Dine barefoot if you wish. The resturant is impeccably clean and efficient yet unpretentious. Guy and Miss Lucy's son Eddie run the establishment, although Miss Lucy herself makes frequent appearences as the restaurant is on her estate. Billy the goat and numerous baby goats, pigs, and roosters compliment the scene. Sunday brunch is truly a special event with the million dollar views of East End and Tortola. Open Tuesday to Saturday for luch and dinner and Sunday for brunch only 10-2.

    Favorite Dish: Miss Lucy's paella is not to be missed. A clay pot of saffron rice is prepared and garnished with olives, shrimp, scallops, shrimp and chicken wings to sizzling perfection. A full bar with reasonable prices makes the experience forget you are in the islands-until you feel the warm evening breezes and hear the palm fronds sway against the floor to ceiling sceens. Also not to be missed is Sunday brunch, when it seems all of St. john turns out for eggs benedict, bloody marys, and jazz!

    A great little restaurant / bar that seems to be in the middle of all the action. As the night progresses, the crowds at Woody's spill out onto to Ferry Road. No worries though, Woody's has a "walk-up" window where you can order your libations and sustenance. I should also mention the beautiful waitresses that will deliver the goods as well.

    Favorite Dish: Fresh seafood is the order of the day every day at Woody's.
