Summer/Fall 2016 St. John Restaurants (and some Bars) – Closing Schedule

Posted by Ruth at St. John Spice

Access this list from The St. John Spice Cam:

This page is useful if you are planning a trip to St. John in the late summer and fall months. September and October are the quiet months, so some restaurants take this time to vacation, renovate etc. This is off-season, so the villa and hotel rates are the cheapest. It’s also the best time to find a parking place and there are a lot less people around.

Notes from Ruth: - If there are no dates posted, it’s either because we have been unable to contact the restaurant or because they do not yet know what their plans are. If we have incorrect dates posted or if there is an omission, please let us know! email:

Click on the restaurant name below for a link to their web site and menus, if available.


All dates subject to change. Please call the restaurant for more information.
