The Restaurant Report- Fall 2021 Seasonal Closures

The Restaurant Report- Fall 2021 Seasonal Closures

Good Morning everyone! Wow, have I missed updating you over the past little bit…A HUGE thanks to Jenn for taking the reigns while I took some time off to get Asante safely to Grenada for hurricane season 🙂 I have plenty to mention to you about that amazing journey in future posts, but, for now, the long awaited seasonal closure “Restaurant Report!”

FRESHLY UPDATED- AUGUST 11, 2021 (Restaurant owners/staff- Please continue to PM me with any changes or updates to this list!)

The Restaurant Report- Fall 2021 Seasonal Closures 1

MANY of you have sent messages about off season restaurant closures and, I’ll admit, I have been trying to get it together! This update comes a little later this year as the busy season is apparently the season that keeps on giving. When I started compiling this list over a month ago, many places were still undecided as to what their plans would be for the upcoming “off season.” I’ve included as many as I could based on the response of the restaurants. But if you don’t see your favorite spots listed below, feel free to ask and I’ll do my best to get you answers! And, if the off season closure or hours below is listed as undecided, it is always a good idea to call ahead once you know your dates of travel.

For those of you who have traveled to St. John during the late summer and early fall months in the past, please know that this year is a different kind of beast. It is projected to remain busy during these typically slower months. So, please plan ahead, make reservations for dining and remember that everyone is short staffed! Especially during these typical “vacation” months for staffers on island. Expect limited hours and seatings…But also expect great food and drinks, amazing company and a very, very, very good time while visiting us this fall 🙂

  1. Thank you for the list! WRT Lime in/out – Closing August 21 for the fall. Stupid question but when would they be reopening, since they just say “for the fall”? I guess winter technically starts December 21st but they’re not staying closed that late, right? Thanks!

  2. I’m shocked that a lot of places wouldn’t want to stay open a little longer. At least through labor day to recoup lost income from last year . The islands are busy and there’s money to be made.

  3. Oh no, what do you mean “new location” for La Tapa????
    I LOVE their sidewalk tables. I do love La Tapa no matter where they go but change is hard….

  4. Thank you for the updates, I hope everyone enjoys their much needed time off and has a safe hurricane season! For those that wonder why they don’t stay open….. they need a break and deserve it!

  5. I just emailed Morgan’s Mango and they are closing 9/23-10/6.
    Really wanted to try it. Celebrating my 50th on 9/25, any suggestions?
