Well folks, I hate to tell you all but it’s an end of an era over at Ms. Vie’s Snack Shack on the East End. Ms. Vie is no longer selling her world famous fried chicken and johnny cakes.
We were playing tour guide to some friends from Ohio and Texas yesterday when we stopped over at Ms. Vie’s. I wanted to show them the place and we also may have made a brief appearance over on Angel’s Rest, the US Virgin Islands’ only floating bar … (Click here to read all about that.)
I recently heard a rumor that Ms. Vie stopped serving friend chicken, so I decided to chat her up a bit. Well it turns out, that after more than 30 years, Ms. Vie was simply sick of cleaning up grease every day. And you know what, I don’t blame her. She’s still serving up food, just of the grease-free variety. She’s now offering island-style rice and beans with or without meat sauce, and also hot dogs.
Ms. Vie is open Tuesdays through Saturdays until 5 p.m. In addition to serving food, she charges $2.50 per person for access to her beach. Her beach has restrooms and chairs for use. Ms. Vie’s is located out on the East End of St. John.
