Skinny Legs

Coral Bay, St. John | (340) 779-4982

Skinny Legs

Skinny Legs is found in toward the center of Coral Bay. Patrons that desire hamburgers will especially enjoy stopping here during a visit to Coral Bay.

Skinny Legs is known for its mouth-watering hand-patted burgers, and has in fact been recognized in Esquire Magazine several times because of their tastiness. After you've sampled one, stop by again and try one of their fresh, crisp salads, or choose from a variety of sandwiches.

High Tide

Downtown Cruz Bay, St. John | (340) 714-6169

High Tide

High Tide, on the premises of Wharfside Landing, can be found in downtown Cruz Bay, near the middle of Cruz Bay. Perhaps you could guess that this place is best known for American goodies, which yes, includes hamburgers, but here they're also fawned-over for another favorite, seafood.

High Tide offers high quality dishes in a casual setting. While lunch offers casual entrees like hamburgers and tacos, dinner has a bit higher taste of meals, including skirt steak and seared tuna. However, do not forget this is a "bar" and grill, so there is also plenty of cold drinks to order.

Dinghy's Beach Bar & Grill

Water Island | (340) 227-5525

Dinghy's Beach Bar & Grill is a logical selection for you to consider if you're going to be spending time seeing the island; it is 2.5 miles to the south west of Charlotte Amalie. Sure to please everyone, Dinghy's Beach Bar & Grill isn't just American creations and one favorite, hamburgers, but it's also quite the favorite for pizza.

The menu here is quite eclectic with offerings including American, Caribbean, Mexican, and Caribbean favorites.

Sun Dog Cafe

Downtown Cruz Bay, St. John | (340) 693-8340

Sun Dog Cafe, which is part of Mongoose Junction, is located in downtown Cruz Bay, in the heart of Cruz Bay. Not only is this restaurant famed for American themed dishes and of course pizza, but they're also good at sandwiches.

Located in the courtyard of Mongoose Junction, dining takes place in an environment of native stone and mahogany with lush terraces. There are 10 tables with green umbrellas to keep you cool for an intimate and relaxed feel. There is also an open air bar overlooking the courtyard, where eclectic shops and galleries provide browsing and buying opportunities.

Caneel Beach Bar & Grill

Caneel Bay, St. John | (340) 776-6111 ext. 334

Positioned toward the outskirts of Cruz Bay, a half mile northeast of the downtown area, Caneel Beach Bar & Grill is located at Caneel Bay Resort, and is a smart choice for travelers who are going to spend time visiting this neighborhood. When it comes to specialty American culinary creations, this place serves up an awful lot of hamburgers and sushi.

This open air setting has a tropical feel that is perfect for the casual menu.
