First things first: This place has THE best key lime pie on the planet and it is an amazing bar!!! The wait staff are fantastic! My husband loves the burgers, the veggie burger is ok....the GTO wasn't that great. It's pretty dirty, but but you know....part of the charm, lots of Chickens and cats hanging out. It's prettier at night!... More

If you want drinks and lousy food including the blah burgers then feel free to visit skinny legs. It is just terrible bar food. Lemonade is just water with lemon. The mahi fish looked like something that came out of the freezer of a local grocery store only smaller and 1/2 the thickness. It looked like a fish stick from... More

We were on St John for our first visit and stayed in Coral Bay, so Skinny Legs was an easy spot to check out. We went one night for burgers and another afternoon for drinks after coming back from Waterlemon. Our server was super chill and good with timing and enjoyed having her as our server. The power went out... More

So Skinny Legs is fun and good in it's own right, but the journey to and around Coral Bay is part of the adventure. Make the effort. You will see so much of the island and if you think Cruz Bay runs on a slower clock, Coral Bay more so. Not to say service at Skinny Legs is slow, it... More

We got there as the lunch rush was hitting. Our order was taken immediately. The food came out fairly quickly and was spot on. We had every server check on us throughout the meal. The burgers are huge and were cooked to temperature, which for me is med. rare. Also the Key Lime Pie was yummy. The Mango Killer is... More

Skinny Legs is an annual stop for me....you can buy swag, drinks, "pretty OK" bar food and enjoy the frenetic employees ramp'n it up to meet the demand for entertainment. With a cold beer in your hand and a warm barstool to perch on you have arrived to witness Coral Bay the way it is...just right (^_^)

I have visited Skinny Legs several times and each time no matter what directions you give your waiter, they will burn your burger. We did inform them they need to turn down the heat on their grill, which they seemed indifferent too. On the plus side they do have good drinks and comped us a drink this time. My recommendation...

Always (ALWAYS!!!!) a stop when we hit St Johns...this out of the way destination (from Cruz Bay anyway) draws us across the island, through the rainforest and up and down steep hills to enjoy some of the grooviest, laid back and chill burger and beer joints anywhere on the planet. If you want "chic and fancy" then stay home. If... More
