My friend and I were excited to eat here after reading so many great reviews and were totally disappointed. Our server was miserable, it was clear she didn't want to be there, or possibly anywhere for that matter. The only smile we got from her was when she dropped off the check. We asked about the conch fritters and rather... More

Had a nice breakfast at Glady's Cafe in St. Thomas. It's down a quaint alley so look for it. It's located in an old stone and brick colonial era building.

Came in on a cruise ship, decided to do some shopping and ask the locals were to eat and they suggested this place. Overall it’s a great place with great food, can’t say so much about the service. The waiter was a little rude and pushy, maybe he was having a bad day? Anyways I would go back again if... More

They close at 5 - we (9 of us) arrived at 440p. It was obvious they were a little perturbed but they served us. The Grilled Mahi-Mahi, w/ Peas and Rice, Fresh Veggies & Plantains was good but the Jerk Pork-Chops w/ Rice Plantains & Coleslaw & Jerk Chicken Breast w/ Rice and Fresh Veggies were to die for! If...
