We stopped here for a quick bite after our day at the beach. I had tacos and a piña colada, which was pretty delicious. Slower on the service, but as with island life, I expected it to be a bit slower. They had a decent menu, but was a bit on the pricey side.

One of our favorites on St John for Mexican food and cold margaritas. Great little deck to eat outside and watch the world go by

Dependably good nachos. Very friendly service. Casual atmosphere. Nice! Can eat out on the patio and people watch. It's a fun, laid-back place.

We went to Margarita Phil's because we met the owner and she gave us a discount card. We have to say that the work ethic of the one waitress was incredible! It was worth the visit to see her in action! Helen you have a jewel in her! The food was good too! The shrimp tacos were perfect! This is... More

The Margaritas are not tasty at all. Very watered down and just downright not good. There were 6 of us and we tried 3 different Margaritas and all decided we would not be back for more. (And they were expensive!!)

Expensive, no happy hour and very diluted margaritas, especially considering the name of the restrauant

We loved our food and our Margarita. Great server who was very personable. We shared the Fajita and purchased a side order of chips with it. It was very yummy. Not very busy and that is a shame.

Previous years, the food here was very good- but although our meals were ok this time- they weren't outstanding. The drinks were weak, and the veggie fajitas were primarily made from summer squash- not my favorite. The waitress was great, though!

Thank piris
