We actually had to abandon our 4WD near the tennis courts a bit outside the town because the street at the bottom of the hill had about 4 feet of water in it from torrential rains -- too deep to drive through. My father in law and I waded through the grossness to meet our family at The Lime Inn... More

5 of us arrived at 7:30pm and were seated before we could get all of our drinks at their wonderful bar! Wahoo was the special and several got that and raved. I had the tuna, rare, and it was sublime. Service was fast but we never felt hurried to eat and we were the last to leave the restaurant, sated... More

That was my first time at The Lime Inn, but it will not be my last. It was a rainy night and the French Onion soup was extremely good. My entree was the wild mushroom ravioli. It was fresh made and delicious. Local Snapper and crab legs were also very good. Everyone's meal was well done. I highly recommend this... More

We ended up here after driving around in circles through town looking for parking so we could go out to dinner somewhere. After driving around aimlessly we noticed the Lime Inn. This place has customer parking!! Looks like this is our spot tonight! We sat at the bar. The bartender was very nice and recommended some delicious drinks. We both... More

We were taken to this restaurant by friends who had frequented Cruz Bay and were familiar with many of its eateries. The Lime Inn was their favorite and we can see why. The laid back atmosphere belies the fine dining that we experienced. From the daily specials and appetizers all the way through to dessert, we were impressed. Very fresh... More

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 owners Rich and Chris Meyer, your St. John experience is not complete without a visit to our open-air restaurant and a taste of our extensive menu. We are known for our wonderful staff and delicious and consistent meals. Join us for fresh grilled Caribbean Lobster or our whole jerk seasoned and pan seared snapper! You can also eat light with our selection of salads or our famous clam chowder. But don't forget, you can't finish up lunch or dinner without famous Key Lime pie. We are open for Lunch Monday thru Friday from 11:30 to 3, happy hour from Monday thru Saturday at our courtyard bar from 3-6 (1/2 priced drinks), and dinner Monday thru Friday from 5:30 to 10.
