Seems to be the current place to go but not a lot of other choices. Food was good but nothing special. Waitress was very friendly and efficient. $3 bloody mary was good!

No trip to St. Thomas is complete without a visit to Gladys' Cafe. Gladys commands the bar and entertains guests with her repertoire of oldies but goodies. Service is attentive, the menu has a few interesting twists and there's lots of homemade hot sauce available.

This was a wonderful place for an afternoon lunch. It has a great reputation for local cooking but it is also a very nicely furnished air conditioned restaurant. I was NOT disappointed. The special of the day was a complete local grown avocado and tuna salad which was wonderful. The standard margarita was a superb and they played great music... More

Food was terrific. I highly recommend getting a local dish to experience the unique flavors offered. The day I was there they had a fish special with a cream sauce that was outstanding. Service was great too!

We have been returning for a week vacation to St Thomas for the past 8 years, and if we fail to eat at Gladys' at least once during the trip we know we will regret it. This is the food Islanders eat, and it is served by Islanders. The place can be hectic, it can be hot, and the food... More

Came here for breakfast with our family. Each had something different and we all enjoyed what we got. I was a little upset that 4 out of 5 of us got our meal together, and I had to wait another 15 minutes for my omelet. Seems like a bit of a mess up there. Pauline our waitress was OK but... More
