High-End Dining and Low-Key Nightlife on St. John

 

The island of St. John in the US Virgin Islands has a great dining and nightlife scene, with more than 35 restaurants ranging from simple beachside food carts to elegant and luxurious establishments. When the sun goes down on St. John, the island comes to life, though the local scene is more relaxed here than on the other two US Virgin Islands of St. Croix and St. Thomas.

Dining

The island of St. John is becoming a hot culinary destination, with many talented chefs coming to the island to see who can come up with the most imaginative dishes.

If you are looking for casual comfort food the best cheeseburgers on the island can be found at Skinny Legs in Coral Bay. This laid back joint is the perfect place to relax with a cold beer after a full day of swimming, snorkelling and exploring.

Spyglass Restaurant is another popular choice, offering Caribbean food and a cheap happy hour with a spectacular view of the sunset and the tranquil blue sea. When it comes to authentic Caribbean home cooking there’s Vie’s Snack Shack—a roadside cart that serves dishes such as garlic chicken, conch fritters, and johnny cakes.

If you feel like getting dressed up in a jacket and tie and treating yourself to a luxurious meal, you could dine at the elegant Caneel Bay Resort. The romantic Turtle Bay Estate House is set along the Northern end of the island and offers stunning views of the nearby islands.

Nightlife

The nightlife in St. John is a little mellower than some of the larger and more populated islands such as St. Thomas. However, when night rolls around in St. John there are still many opportunities to drink, dance, and party into the early hours. You can hear live music any night of the week at many of the venues around the island, while the best St. John parties center around Cruz Bay and Coral Bay.

Beer lovers can start with The Tap Room, where local ales from St. John Brewers are featured. Then, head to the Motu Bar which is an upscale version of the simple beach shack bar. Shipwreck Landing in Coral Bay offers live music on Wednesday evenings and weekend nights.
