The Longboard Reopens!

the longboard

Well folks, one of our favorite restaurants has finally reopened for regular service following the hurricanes, and we could not be more excited!

The Longboard reopened its doors Friday after being officially closed for the past few months. As you may recall, The Longboard’s owner Clint Gaskin actually flew to St. John the day before Hurricane Irma hit, so he could be on island and help feed people after the storms. Well Clint ended up doing just that, serving thousands of Red Cross meals for the first month after Irma.

After the Red Cross contract ended, Clint and his staff took a much-needed break. They also took that time to spruce up the restaurant, installing new tables, stools, fans and more. They changed up their menu a bit too for the reopening. Check it out:

The Longboard’s kitchen is open from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. daily. The bar is open from 3 p.m. till the last customer leaves. 🙂 Happy hour is daily from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. They have great specials including a $6 frozen Painkiller (one of my personal favorites!), $11 Frose, a variety of island craft cocktails for $6, and $1 off all beers.

So the next time you are lucky enough to be on St. John, be sure to stop by The Longboard. We’re pretty sure you won’t be disappointed.

Have a great Wednesday everyone! Cheers!

  1. Sorry to say I have never stopped at the Longboard. The place is always packed!! Good for the owners, not for me. I will make it a point to visit during my next trip!

  2. We were so excited that they reopened on our trip! Just got back to Chicago, stayed in Fish Bay from Jan 10-16. Had a frozen painkiller myself on Saturday night and the place was hopping then and all weekend!

  3. We are coming in February with a group of 35 for a wedding. Would love to rent the whole place for an evening. Who do we contact?

  4. We will be there in a month. It’s one of our favorites. Can’t wait. We need a break from this bone chilling cold.
