Mim’s Seaside Bistro is a beautiful oceanfront restaurant in St. Thomas that specializes in fresh seafood dishes. With house specialties including coconut curry lobster, baked stuffed lobster and conch fritters, Mim’s is a little slice of heaven for seafood lovers. We offer everything from king crab legs and fresh fish to chicken wings and creative pasta dishes. Our two large patios are the perfect setting for a relaxing dinner by the ocean, and our location right on the beach at Bolongo Bay gives us access to the best sunset view around.To get your appetite going, choose from our lobster and crab dip, coconut shrimp or calamari appetizers. For the main event, pick from one of our countless seafood dishes like the Grilled Mahi Mahi, King Crab Legs or Breaded Sea Scallops. For those who don’t particularly enjoy fish, we have plenty of non-seafood options to choose from. Try our stuffed artichoke hearts, fried brie, chicken alfredo pasta or one of our juicy steaks. Enjoy the island breeze while sipping a beer or one of our unique cocktails, from the always-popular Caribbean Margarita to the more daring Sex on the Beach in Winter or Beach Bar Bomber. Make sure to save room for our Key Lime Pie or Butterscotch Walnut Bread Pudding.

Had dinner here one night. Once we found the place, we were seated right by the water! Could not have been closer! I ordered almandine snapper and my husband had the grouper. Both of us said our meals were OK but nothing very special. The location is wonderful but food just average.

The oceanfront table was unbelievable. I didn't want to leave. We enjoyed the view sipping our wine and enjoying our dinner. I had the almond encrusted snapper. It was very good but you should love almonds because it is covered in almonds. My husband had the blackened mahi mahi and I thought it was great. The baked potatoe was just... More

My husband and I stayed at The Ritz for our honeymoon and decided to dine off property one night. Mim's was recommended and was a great choice. First, you can't beat the views! Outside dinning and you are right on the water. Second, the food!!! Great meals and you can't beat the price. My only complaint was that it's very... More

We stayed within spitting distance for an entire week. On the second day of our vacation, we elected to have dinner at Mim's. The food, while expensive in comparison to the US, was average at best. The service was horrible. So, when you average the food and service together... I'd say save your money and find a different place to... More

We stayed within walking distance and found ourselves here often. Superb rum drinks (Mim's rum punch) and equally good seafood (fish/lobster), steaks available. All you can eat shrimp Thursday. Opens at 6pm. Wish it was open for lunch too. I will be back.

I love this little seaside restaurant. The views were stunning. Lobster is fresh. Had the coconut curry lobster. It doesn't look too appetizing but it was wonderful! My husband had lobster & flat iron steak which was mouth watering yummyness!!! Service is excellent. Waitresses are wonderful!! Thank you all for a great time 😊
