Located just a short walk from the ferry from St. Thomas, Margarita Phil's is a lovely little restaurant with covered tables, that serve excellent food and delicious margaritas. The ahi tuna tacos were fresh and delicious ($30 - didn't see the price until we got the check) and the mango margarita (32 oz) was fantastic. Mike, our server, was from... More

On day of walking around sight seeing, shopping and hanging out we decided to stop in to Margarita Phil's. You might say why, well how can you not stop in when there is sign outside that says 32oz margaritas TO GO. What a great way to refresh while walking in the warm sun in on St. John.

We went there for lunch after a long hike. We were the only ones there and the girl serving us was great. The place is very small but the food was unbelievable. I wish we had more time in town so we could go back there. I definitely recommend this place.

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.
