Description: At Morgan’s Mango, we try to reflect the life of the islands, a place of dazzling light and color, tropical breezes and starry nights, a relaxed and sensory experience.Joining us, to share in the culinary history of an island world crowded with so many wonderful cultures that it takes your breath way. Our food covers many Caribbean and South American cuisines—Creole, Bahamian, Cuban, Jamaican, Haitian, Puerto Rican, Argentinian and Mayan. All of these cuisines have been influenced by the original inhabitants of the islands, the Arawak and Carib Indians, as well as the Africans, East Indians and Chinese who arrived later. Add to these the foods of the Spanish, French, British and Danish settlers, and you have an incredible melting pot of ethnic and classic cuisines.Hence Cuisines of the Caribbean, a neo-Caribbean experience conveying the juice and jazz of the islands, a carnival of flavors and lifestyles.

I have not posted a review but needed to based on how good the food was. End with the key lime pie and you will go home happy.

I have eaten there twice the mahi mahi appetizer was delicious. My wife does not like fish and loved it.

I had the blackened wahoo the first time and we spilt a lobster the second.

There is no view there, but the key lime was the best dessert I have ever had.

Until next time,

We had a pretty good meal here. It was not amazing but still left satisfied. We wished we did not order their desserts. We were not happy at all with any of them. The service and ambiance were the highlight of the night. Did I mention that the prices were a bit too high in my opinion?

We're sorry to hear that our desserts didn't hit the spot, Aimee. This is a bit surprising, because one of our most famous dishes is our Key Lime Pie. Next time, don't hesitate to let us know if anything doesn't hit the spot -- we're more than happy to find you something else.

That said, it's great that the rest of your visit was excellent! The next time you visit the island, we'd love to welcome you back.

Best,
Carlos and Maria Ines, Owners

Nice restaurant. Pleasant atmosphere. The seafood and steaks were excellent. Flavorful side dishes like rice, beans and plantains were a nice surprise. Key lime pie was superb. Suggest making a reservation or be prepared to wait.

Thank you for making us a part of your trip to St. John! You can't beat a fresh slice of Key Lime pie, right? We hope the rest of your vacation was just as fun and relaxing! The next time you come down from the Windy City, don't hesitate to swing by.

Best,
Carlos and Maria Ines, Owners

We were disappointed in the food. The food was pricey but was very lack luster. The Mahi didn't taste very fresh, the fish pot was over cooked, the coconut shrimp was okay. The best entree was the quesadilla.

We're disappointed to hear you didn't enjoy your dishes, Suzy. There's nothing more important to us than making sure each meal comes out cooked and flavored to perfection. We'd like to assure you that all of our fish is brought in fresh from the Caribbean, but we apologize that this was called into question.

We'd love another chance to truly impress. It sounds like you didn't see us at our best, but you can count on a much better visit next time.

Take care,
Carlos and Maria Ines, Owners

Brian at Morgan's Mango deserves a raise. I sure hope he gets paid well and gets to enjoy the beaches on his off time. We noticed him helping all the other wait staff out, seemingly without any thanks and despite the humidity and sweat, he was always on his toes and friendly with the guests. As for the food, where's the mango? Considering their name, you'd think there'd be a lot of mango options in the menu. The salads are tiny but very nice. The mahi mahi was like a tough, bland brick. I would not order it again but if you’re hungry, it’s a big serving. The Cajun shrimp appetizer, however, was scrumptious. The fried coconut shrimp entre were mostly batter but tasty of course since it’s comfort food. The sourcream dill(?) sauce they serve is bland and it’s served with both cajun shrimp and the crabcakes appetizers – not much ingenuity or thought for differing flavors. The crabcakes were salty. The voodoo snapper was surprisingly bland. It’s served with a bland combination of beans and chickpeas, yellow colored rice and the tiniest piece of corn on the cob. You’ll get two tiny plantains with the vegetarian platter and not much else. Considering the selection on St John, it’s fine though. The key lime pie is good, sort of like a room-temperature milkshake. I notice when folks give a place a bad review, they don’t recommend other places and that’s probably because there aren’t a lot of choices on St John so don't take those negative reviews to seriously. It's dfinitely worth coming to Morgans Mango and checking it out for yourself.

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience! It sounds like Brian was taking excellent care of you and our other guests, which is wonderful. We're lucky to have such a great team member! We'll be sure to let him know you gave him a shout out.

As for your dishes, we're sorry to hear that not all of them were stellar. As always, don't hesitate to let us know if something isn't up to par. We do have quite a variety on our menu, so next time we hope to serve you up some that truly impresses! We'll see you then.

Take care,
