We stopped in her for lunch and split a swordfish wrap. We had eaten here before when it was Sweet Plantains and were not big fans. We liked this much better. The food and drinks were good. The service was outstanding and bumped my review...More

A most enjoyable evening, though sad that it was our last night this time on St John. Staff was very accommodating - no room outside at first, so we sat briefly indoors, and when a table freed up they let us have the first one...More

Maybe if one just wanted bottled Guiness it would be OK, but the food was dreadfully dull. Both goat curry and vegan curry were flavorless and the lamb stew was uninspired. Not recommended.

Tasty food with a fun local and visitor mix! Thursday night trivia night very fun and gives back to non profit organizations! Great music and great cocktails!

We had very high expectations - the menu sounds great and there have been very good reviews. Unfortunately ours is not one of them. We were there on Christmas night - it was one of the only places open in Coral Bay. They did not...More

Our family of 5 had Christmas dinner here this year. The food was very good, as were the drinks. However, we did have to wait about 15 minutes for a table and another 10 for menus. They were one of the few places on the...More

We used to always bring guests to Sweet Plantains, but had an extremely unsatisfactory visit after the new ownership turned a charming Caribbean Restaurant into a tastless British Pub. Hasn't anyone told the Brits that the Caribbean favors spice and energy, not bland tastless fare?...More

I'm not sure how to respond to this review, as it doesn't seem that you actually visited our restaurant. If you did you may have tried the curry (like our Caribbean Curried Goat), or tried one of our local fresh seafood dishes. I noticed you...More

Had a nice meal of bangers and mash, and my wife had cottage pie. Both very tasty. Great entertainment with Chris Carsell, who we catch whenever in St. John

We love it when Chris plays here. He is so talented and such a genuinely nice person. He's now shifted to playing at Skipper's every Tuesday. We hope to see you here again soon. Thanks Steve & Adie

$17 for a pounds of mussels and $24 for an entree on St John is very reasonable. You can find cheaper entrees, but the sides are then alacarte, about $4-$6 each. Oh, and you serve and bus your own table and eat with a plastic...More

Steve and Adie look forward to welcoming you to their newly renovated British Pub right on the water in Coral Bay. The menu features Skipper's Pub menu (wraps, sandwiches and appetizers) plus a great dinner menu of British food such as Bangers n mash, Cottage Pie, Steak and Guinness Pie, as well as some amazing curry dishes. Walk-ins are always welcome, but it is recommend to call ahead and reserve a table during high season.
