    We did the 4 course option and wine pairing. It was fantastic and the bartender/manager was very knowledgeable about the wines and amazing service. The food was awesome and the small plates were just the right amount. I had the whole snapper plate and the bartender even filleted the snapper for me. My husband had the ribs which were very delicious. I am looking forward to going again the next time we are back on STJ.

Everyone there makes sure you’re enjoying yourself and explain their wines and food items better than any other place I’ve been to. ( And not just St. John)! Top notch! Oh, and we absolutely love and adore the owners! Family owned💝

    The Lime Inn was excellent for dinner. We had a party of four and everyone enjoyed every course. While their fixed price menu will not appeal to everyone, I think it is a good value. I started with the tuna tartare which tasted fresh and had the shrimp for the second course. They had a little bit of spice to them and were cooked perfectly. I had the ribs for my large plate. They were cooked very well and the sauce was tasty, but it had a bit too much sauce for my personal taste. The accompanying mac hand cheese was excellent.

    Great menu and concept. price is very reasonable. The wine pairing was amazing, but small pours though. i would ay a little more for a normal pour. They were amazingly paired to the food. The quality and taste of the food was amazing but my only issue was that we were 3 and we all comentes in the fact that the food was not hot. it was luke warm. Despite this is was the best restaurant I tried. I would definitely be back

    We had a fabulous four course dinner and the highlight of our meal was the service! The restaurant was pretty busy and the manager, Siobhan (Bubu) seated us and gave us wonderful recommendations, continued to check in on us and made us feel very special. Our other server (didn’t catch her name) was wonderful too and even though the restaurant was busy they both made us feel like they had all the time in the world to talk with us. Definitely our favorite meal of our vacation!

    Best restaurant and meal of our entire trip to the USVI. The atmosphere was so peaceful and relaxing and the food was exquisite. The icing on top (literally) had to be the desert which my wife and I have quite literally been talking about since we left St John a week ago. Every course was excellent and just the experience of fine dining was outstanding.

    OMG. DELICIOUS. Service was 5 star. The entire staff was amazing. But our server Lou- made the evening. She was so warm and personable. She was a complete treasure. I ordered the whole fish entree. She deboned the fish for me table-side. Ask for Lou for your server, you will not be disappointed.

    We enjoyed our 4 course dinner for 5. The menu has changed since our last visit, the prices are much higher now, with much smaller portions. I always look forward to the delicious New England Clam Chowder, but this time my bowl was so small and only half full. The BEST part of the Lime Inn is our favorite waitress, LOU. She is so kind and makes us feel so welcome. We request her as our waitress every time we eat at the Lime Inn. Over the years, she has always been friendly, hard- working, professional and very efficient. Thanks, Lou!

    We were excited to taste and share from the 4 course tasting menu at Lime Inn. The food had a lot of flavor, some items were a tad salty, but overall very good. I am dairy free and had the tomato vegetarian pasta entree at the urging of the hostess or manager (not sure who she was as she didn't introduce herself) which was very tasty and filling. The 4 courses were more than we ordinarily would have ordered and I would have been happier just ordering a la carte off the menu but it was interesting to get to taste so many items.

    We loved eating here during our vacation stay in St. John. We opted for the 4 course meal selection and enjoyed the island dishes. The clam chowder was excellent as were the grilled shrimp 2 nd course. All of our entrees were divine— we enjoyed the steak, the ribs (fall off the bone tender!), the peppered chicken and the whole grilled shrimp. All were delicious. For dessert we enjoyed the key lime pie, the brownie sundae and the coconut custard. All were good, but the custard was out of this world. In all, this was one of our favorite meals in St. John. The food was authentic and delicious, the staff was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was low key but efficient. And the prices were typical St. John, but well worth it for what we got.

    Lime Inn had been recommended to us and it did not disappoint. We were greeted immediately by a lovely young lady who escorted us to our table and explained the menu. Our cocktails were delicious! We needed a little guidance with our 4 courses of choices. Our waitress was extremely helpful. We both started with the clam chowder which may have been the best we have every enjoyed! For entrees, I had the lobster with risotto. It was delicious! My husband had the ribs, which he is still talking about! The key lime pie dessert was wonderful, although a little more frozen that I wanted it to be....had to wait a bit to enjoy it. A wonderful evening!
