Not only is the food great but the service is over the top. The manager stopped by the table to make sure that everything was going good. Overall a great place to eat.

The Lime Inn has very good Caribbean lobster. The service was good, the prices are decent and the atmosphere is laid back. The key lime pie is very good!

We eat at the Lime Inn every year and this year was the best year yet! Apparently there is a new chef and the food was top notch. A++ for food, service, and atmosphere. We can't wait to go back next year. Highly recommend!

The Lime Inn restaurant is located in downtown Cruz Bay and has been a favorite between locals and visitors alike since 1984. Still owned and operated by the Meyer family (now daughter, Chelsea, and son in law, Richard) your St. John experience is not complete without a visit to our open-air, friendly, restaurant. We are known for our wonderful staff and delicious and consistent meals. Join us for our all day Happy Hour 11:30 AM to 5:30 PM, where our signature cocktails are $4 and Presidente Beers are $2. Fresh Grilled Caribbean Lobster is served daily along with our famous cracked conch, rum ribs, and house made pasta, just to name a few. You can also eat light with an awesome appetizer selection, fresh salads, and famous soups. No one can leave, either, without a taste of our famous Key Lime pie. We are open for Lunch Monday thru Saturday from 11:30 to 5, happy hour Monday thru Saturday 11:30 am-5:30 and Dinner Monday thru Saturday from 5:30 to 9:30. We look forward to seeing you!
