When on St Croix, a must stop is No Bones Café Fresca, a local neighborhood bar and restaurant that is a favorite among the locals. Why? GREAT food and GREAT service! Owner Chuck Vouros is very proud of the restaurant he has built. “I have been in the business since I was 18 and I have a lifelong passion to make people happy.” This casual sports bar is open for Lunch and Dinner from 11:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. with Happy Hour from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. When asked what makes his restaurant unique, he immediately responded “The Staff!”
As Chuck raved and went on and on about his staff, he also gave special recognition to his Chef, Sam Mumford. Chef Sam is responsible for the great food this establishment is known for. Craving pasta? Try the Cajun Pasta with blackened chicken, artichoke hearts, mushrooms and roasted red peppers tossed in a Cajun cream sauce and served over bow tie pasta. Craving pork? Try the Roasted Pork Shoulder served with mashed potatoes, Brussel sprouts and topped with a honey dijonnaise sauce. If you want to eat a little on the lighter side, try the No Bones Veggie Burger, Grilled Shrimp Baguette, or Grilled Reuben, all served with lots of flavor and choice of Fries, Cole Slaw or Potato Salad. While waiting for your food, kick back and enjoy the selection of red and white wines or 19 different types of bottled beer, including a local draft beer. September of 2017 was not an easy time in the Caribbean and St Croix was not spared of two hurricanes. But Chuck told us that “due to a fantastic landlord, a generator was secured and we opened 10 days later. We only had a small amount of damage.”
