Great atmosphere

I really liked the feel of this place. It feels like you've stepped back in time with the old brick walls and old music playing. Our waitress was very nice and the food was really good. We had conch fritters and chowder and jerk chicken and it was all very good. The prices were reasonable too... read more

Had the plaintain which was very good and the grilled mahi sandwich with a drizzle of the Gladys famous sauces - was perfect. If you liked the famous carribean sauces you can... More

Good food. Nice atmosphere. Attentive service. Got to have the blackened Mahi sandwich. Conch fritters could have had a little more conch...but still ok.

During our stay we had breakfast twice at this restaurant. Service was good both times, as well as the meal. Many good choices on the menu, and the staff makes you feel at home. The restaurant is somewhat hidden in the alley, but signage makes it easy to find. Wanted to give it a 5, but having to leave the... More

Glady's Cafe is in town along one of the shopping side aisles. It does not look like much from the outside, don't let that discourage you from going in. It is a hidden gem! We go to lunch them every time we go to the island. Their stewed chicken and curried chicken dishes are excellent island food.

Whenever we are in St. Thomas we always have lunch at Gladys'. The food is excellent. Sometimes a bit slow, but you are waiting in air conditioning with a yummy cocktail. Not a bad place to beat the heat. And if you love hot sauce, do yourself a favor and bring some of theirs home!

Great jerk chicken and Mahi Mahi ! Also good cole slaw. Definitely worth checking out for authentic cuisine that doesn't cost and arm and a leg.

What a great place to stop and have a nice lunch. It is hidden in downtown but the food is spectacular. I had the special that day and the Caribbean flavor was bar none. Service was perfect and you have to try the hot sauce they make.
