It’s taken years for us to get out to End End and taste one of the island’s specialties, the garlic chicken and Johnnycakes at Vie’s Snack Shack.
Unfortunately, she was out of Johnnycakes, a deep fried cornbread. But the substituted beans and rice more than made up for it. This is not a meal for the diet police, but it sure is tasty.
Vie, by the way, is probably one of highest net worth people on the island.
She claims ownership to a beautiful beach. She will let you
yourself plop there for the day for only $2.50. There are chaises on the sand and cold beer in her roadside shack. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon.
Another recent visitor to Vie’s, known as Iowaguy at Virgin-Islands-on-Line, also gives it a great review.

We visited Vie’s on our last trip to St. John. Her food was a hit! Fortunately, we were able to sample the Johnny Cakes…the best ever! I could actually go for one of those right now!! Also, our children enjoyed spending the day on the beach with Vie’s grandchildren. On the way home we made our way over to Skinny Legs for dinner. That place is also too good to miss!
Sounds awesome and something new for my family and I to try. How do you get there?
Go to Coral Bay. Go past Skinny’s about 3 miles. The shack ins on the left, the beach is on the right. And there are beautiful down island views all the way.
We visit Vie’s Snack Shack every year, it is my favorite dining out on the island. I eat fried chicken once a year, and it is at Vie’s. When I am back home, and I want to think happy thoughts, I think of sitting at Vie’s enjoying her home cookin, and limin it up.
