Restaurants that are Open on St John Virgin Islands

What Restaurants are Likely to Be Open on St John VI During Low Season?


Summer season in St John Virgin Islands is considered low season. Mid-August to mid-October is the slowest time of year in terms of traveler traffic. St Johns off season is a great time to come to get the most peaceful visit on island and less traveled hikes and beaches. However, this also means that some restaurants or other establishments will take somewhat of a break during the slowest part of the low season. Whether it be a week, two weeks, or a month, an establishment may be completely closed or very limited hours for a period during this time.  It may be a good idea to check if your desired restaurant is open before you head out.

Some establishments that we understand to have a good shot of being open are as follows: 

     • Beach Bar, • Woody’s • 420 • Surf Side Cantina • Salty Mongoose • High Tide •  Longboard  • Tap Room • Greengos • Cruz Bay Landing • Downtown Sips Shambles • Windmill Bar • Upstairs Bar & Grill • Little Olive Food Truck • Maho Crossroads • Trunk Bay Cinnamon Bay Love City Wing Spot Tap & Still
