Time to say “Ciaodios!”

Chrisism: the word created when Chris gets flustered and combines two words. Today’s word is “Ciaodios”. This weekend we say goodbye to our Polly’s family as Polly’s transitions to the capable hands of Susan and Sean. It has been a pleasure to serve St Croix for the last 7 years. Thank you for being such loyal customers and friends over the years. Now we are going to sit down and rest our feet.

A special thanks to Sue Bacallao for being here on day 1 and sticking it out with us as Chris’ work wife. You will always be our family. We are super proud of Sean Moon who walked in 4 years ago looking for a job and started washing dishes. Look at what you have become! We have complete gratitude to Susan for stepping in and buying Polly’s to keep it from shutting its doors forever this month. Susan and Sean are committed to keeping the same daytime good family feeling of which our customers have become accustomed. We can’t wait to see what happens with the night time Tex-Mex expansion. Susan was always disappointed that Hurricane Maria stopped us from our planned kitchen expansion to add a full timeTex-Mex night menu…so she bought Polly’s 3 years later to make it happen! For the community, this means a growth of employment for Frederiksted. Susan and Sean are looking for additional Polly’s family immediately as well as in the near future with the night time expansion. Reach out to them directly.

We are excited that Alyssa will be back in the house in October as she returns from maternity leave. Margi, who was our lifesaver after Hurricane Maria, will be back on Saturday’s. (We have tried unsuccessfully to clone Margi for the other days.)

Chris will be in the house this weekend so please make sure to stop by and say “Ciaodios” to him.

I am signing off now. Ciaodios y’all!

Polly’s is open for dine-in service!

Polly’s at the pier has reopened for dine-in service. We have 9 outside tables (2 in front and 7 in courtyard) and 4 very well spaced inside tables in our open air environment. More good news is that we were approved by the Health Department to serve using REAL plates, glassware, and utensils. Hooray for not putting more useless plastic in our landfill.

Stop in for breakfast from 8 – 11 or lunch from 11 – 3. We can’t wait to see you!

Shortened hours until VI “Stay at Home” order ends. Close at 1 pm.

With the Governor of the VI having the “Stay at Home” order in place that limits restaurants to take out only, Polly’s at the Pier will be shortening its hours and closing at 1 pm everyday. Although we strive to keep the doors open all the time to support our community and our employees earning an income, we need to cut some of our losses during this restriction.

Please support ALL your local restaurants that are trying to stay open during this closure and place take-out orders as often as you can! Our industry and its employees are struggling.

Polly’s hours will be Monday – Sunday 8am until 1 pm until the restriction is lifted. Polly’s will be closed Labor Day.
