For all of you that ate there …loved it …and looked forward to visiting DD on your next visit to St John … our condolences. Donkey Diner, the venerable and ever popular Coral Bay eatery is no longer! The news that Donkey Diner was closing came as a shock to many. A listing on Craigslist USVI briefly offered the restaurant for sale. That posting no longer exists and the landlord has confirmed to us that the owners of Donkey Diner will not be reopening at this location.
Donkey Diner is Now The Indigo Grill!
The space previously held by Donkey Diner and Sputnik II is Coral Bay’s newest bar and restaurant! After months and months of renovation they’ve finally opened for business!
With plenty of covered outdoor seating, and outdoor bar, The Indigo Grill opened for business – ending a year or more of social media buzz about the fate of Donkey Diner. And although we’ll all have a special place in our hearts for Donkey Diner, the new Indigo Grill is a welcome addition to Coral Bay’s restaurant and bar scene.
So What’s It Like?
Hippster-casual, rustic, island, modern, and stylish! An eclectic conglomerate of styles that somehow seems to work. Outdoor dining and bar – because, hey, you’re in paradise! Enjoy the tropical breeze, people watch and enjoy a cold drink and some terrific food – sky overhead and palms rustling amid the sounds of the Coral Bay community.
The Indigo Grill Menu
The eclectic style extends to the menu. From the appetizer Hot & Nasty Nuts, $4 to Local Tini’s Fire Hot Sauce Wings and Tots to fresh Soups & Salads ( including local island favorite Josephine’s Greens), Pizza and hot sandwiches. We recommend the Indigo Grill Blue Cheese Pizza with Bacon. In the mood for a really creative sandwich? Try the Goat Cheese Meatball Sub, $10. Or a healthy, fresh Bacon Avocado Chicken Sandwich, $14, on toasted flatbread with spicy East End Aioli, red onion and a side of fries!
Pizza served 3pm – 6pm. After 6pm, full dinners.
Next time you’re visiting St John you’ll should give them a try!
Happy Hour is 2pm – 5pm every day!

Not sure where their located?
When you get to ” the intersection” at the bottom of the road [ Rte 10 / Centerline Road ] leading into Coral Bay you’ll continue straight about 150 yards, just past the Moravian Church on your left and the ball field on your right.
