This was our second visit to Gladys' - we came here five years ago and definitely wanted to come back on this visit to St Thomas. It is nothing fancy but in a beautiful old stone building in a narrow alley in the Royal Dane mall. It is a larger restaurant for that part of town and it is air... More

We have been to Gladys on numerous occasions, but this time, it just wasn't as good as our past experiences. Our server was not particularly friendly, and the food, just OK. Past visits to this restaurant have been much better. It may just be that it was an off day, but we were disappointed in this visit.

This is off the beaten path but ask and you will find and boy is it worth the find! Had breakfast and lunch there. Breakfast was nothing special but lunch was lobster avocado salad so fresh and delish! Tried the jerk chicken and it was excellent. Service by Patrice was superb! That lady puts a new meaning to the word... More

This is a great local restaurant serving breakfast and lunch. It is in an old building with great atmosphere that is tucked back into a narrow alley right off Main Street. Great local and international foods and reasonably priced. Liked it so much we went back a second time!

The cab driver recommended Gladys" Café so we decided to try it. Food and service were great. The curry chicken was delicious. It was a nice place to take a break from shopping and enjoy lunch.

Great vibe, friendly staff and the best curry chicken I have ever eaten. Three large pieces of very moist chicken, in a savory curry sauce. Sides included peas and rice, Mac salad, fried plantains, and a few potatoes all cooked perfectly. We also had the grouper which was equally as good. Don't expect fancy, don't expect high end or even... More
