Do not be fooled by the unassuming style and location of The Lime Inn. The food speaks for itself. We enjoyed the Shrimp and Scallop squid ink pasta which was in a delicious buerre blanc sauce with enough black pepper to cut through the cream. The pan seared snapper with yucca fries, arugula salad and mango salsa was superb! The... More

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 December 2016

Our group ate here twice. The first time I had the Pan Seared Snapper Filet which was good, fresh tasting and served promptly. The second time I went for the grilled Caribbean lobster. It was fantastic. Took a little work, but that was the hardest I worked on this vacation. I also recommend the Pickled Bermuda Salad, I had it... More

The food is good but not the best dinner we had in Cruz bay. I had a fresh salad with jerk chicken and Greek dressing which was nice. The others at our table thought food was good. We had a very efficient and friendly server. The bartender was fun and made great drinks.

The selection was small and only 1 thing I'd eat on the menu but it was good. A bit expensive but the service was good and the atmosphere was pleasant.

Stopped in for lunch last week while visiting St. John. Waitress was very friendly and attentive. Cheesesteak sandwich was good and red potato salad was great. Tasted my mother's appetizer which was bacon wrapped scallops... EXCELLENT and cooked to perfection!

My wife and I were staying across the street from the Lime Inn and a decided to go for drinks and key lime pie. We had eaten there before so we knew the offerings were first rate. We were served great drinks and I ordered the key lime pie. OUTSTANDING!!!! Enough said!

Enjoyed a Mahi fillet that was well cooked and delicious. Salad was also fresh and tasty. The frozen key lime pie was also memorable. The service was very slow. Took half an hour to get our food.

Glad you loved all the food you had including our fresh mahi, local greens salad, and our famous key lime pie! I don't know if I understand, if the whole meal took 30 minutes, or if your entree took 30 minutes after your salad, or something else entirely. Either way, I'm sorry you felt it was a long wait.
