Hello everyone, and happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend, and Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms and stepmoms reading this!
I have been getting several emails asking about seasonal closings. For those of you who are new to St. John, it is common for our restaurants to close during the slower season, which coincides with peak hurricane season. Some of the restaurants on St. John close for a week or two, while others may close for a month or even several. The closings tend to start sometime in July; however the majority of restaurants that choose to close do so in either August or September typically.
As of today, the majority of restaurants that tend to close have not released that information. And perhaps they haven’t decided yet. That information should come out in about a month, and I will let you know as soon as I do.
So you may be wondering if there will be anywhere to eat if you are visiting in August or September. The answer is absolutely. Not all restaurants close. The fine dining spots tend to, while the most casual places often stay open. Cruz Bay Landing, The Beach Bar, High Tide and The Tap Room, for example, almost always stay open throughout the year. They may opt to close for a day or two or perhaps a week, but that’s about it.
So again, as soon as I have that info, I will absolutely share it with you. If you’d like to check back for this information, you can check out www.explorestj.com/closings.
