My husband and I spent the day on St. John for the first time. We asked a local tour guide for a recommendation for a good restaurant that serves island cuisine and she took us to De Coal Pot. This was one of the best lunches/dinners I had on this vacation. The Creole that my husband ordered was so tasty and tender it practically fell off the bone. I ordered a whole fish meal that was out of this world in tastiness and freshness. The portions were very generous and each meal at lunch was served with 3 sides. Even the sides were wonderful. The sweet potato stuffing, the rice, the fresh steamed vegetables - just to name a few - were all fresh and abundant. It was just what we were looking for in dining experience and food. The server was very pleasant and funny and made us feel very welcome. It was a very homey and cool in the dining room. The drinks were typical but very cold and good. I can't wait to share this restaurant next year with some other family members when we return to St. John for vacation.
