Island Update: St. John Restaurant Closings & More

Hello everyone, and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great holiday last week! I know I did! I figured it’s been a bit since I posted an island update, so here we go!

Let’s start with St. John restaurant closings. I’ve been getting a lot of emails about this one. The dates are slowly starting to trickle in, but I do not have the full list as of yet. Here are some that I have so far:

  • ZoZo’s is closed for the season. They will reopen in December.
  • Lovango Resort + Beach Club will close July 20th. They will reopen in December.
  • The Terrace is closing for the season on July 25th. Reopening date TBD.
  • Lime Inn’s last day will be August 2nd. They will reopen October 14th.
  • Johnny Lime’s last day will be August 2nd. They will reopen October 14th.
  • Drink is most likely closing on August 8th. They will reopen on Halloween.
  • Miss Lucy’s last day will be August 9th. Reopening date TBD.
  • Skinny Legs is closing on August 10th. They are reopening on Halloween.
  • Rum Hut is tentatively closing on August 10th and tentatively reopening on October 16th.
  • Extra Virgin Bistro is closing on August 11. Reopening date TBD.
  • Cafe Roma will be closed August 18th through August 31st.
  • Lime Out’s last day will be August 23rd. They will reopen October 20th.
  • 1864 is closing on August 29th. Reopening date TBD.
  • Dave & Jerry’s is closing on August 30th. They are reopening on October 7th.
  • The Windmill Bar, The Upstairs, The Beach Bar, The Longboard, Cruz Bay Landing, The Tap Room, and Sharky’s By the Water are a few spots that will remain open during off-season.

That being said, off-season is basically here. The island had a great crowd the past few weeks to celebrate Festival, but now we are expecting it to wind down for the season. It is still a great time to visit for those of you who are looking for a last-minute vacation. Most of the vacation rentals have reduced prices during the summer months, so there are great deals to be had. I know many of you are concerned about possible tropical weather, so I do suggest getting travel insurance for summer trips.

Speaking of weather, Hurricane Beryl did not affect the island last week. The system passed well to our south, thankfully.

I am hoping to have the full list of closings by the end of the week. I will post them at I will also upload a printable list when it’s complete.

That’s it for today, folks! New restaurant news coming later this week – stay tuned! Have a great one!
