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.

My wife and I have gone to Phil's every time we've been in St. John and after sampling everything, we've decided that everything is great at this restaurant. Great drinks, great food, great atmosphere, you name it. I've tried multiple flavors of margs and love them all. Portions are plentiful and what else to say than it's great? Definitely recommend...

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.

We went to Margarita Phil's because we met the owner and she gave us a discount card. We have to say that the work ethic of the one waitress was incredible! It was worth the visit to see her in action! Helen you have a jewel in her! The food was good too! The shrimp tacos were perfect! This is... More

The Margaritas are not tasty at all. Very watered down and just downright not good. There were 6 of us and we tried 3 different Margaritas and all decided we would not be back for more. (And they were expensive!!)

Expensive, no happy hour and very diluted margaritas, especially considering the name of the restrauant
