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.

Lovely view.

Great food. We enjoyed the ambiance. The Creole Waho was delicious. The snapper almandine was excellent. The waitress was sweet, funny, but slow.

This restaurant was recommended by the Marriott when I asked for recommendations for crab legs. Food was good. View was great. Everything went well until our meal was served. They got busy and I really feel our waitress forgot about us. Everyone else was being waited on but our server was nowhere to be found. Finally the manager comes over... More

The sound and smell of the Caribbean Sea while eating a delicious lobster dinner is perfection! Casual dress and the friendly atmosphere is what makes this restaurant so attractive!

This restaurant is part of another complex and is situated a walk away from Bolongo Beach. The outside tables overlook the bay and there is white table linen. Everything is very expensive with entrees starting at $29 going up to $99 for lobster. The food portions are large and off putting. Service was good but somewhat unfriendly. Drinks of course...

We had the Crab Dip which was delicious, and the Crab Spring Rolls which were not that great. We tried to order our dinner for there and something togo to take back to the girls at the condo, but they told us they were too busy to do a togo order. I feel like that was rude considering I was... More

We visited Mim's on July 10, 2015. This was, by far, the best meal we had on St. Thomas. The service was outstanding and the food even better. Opt for the outdoor, ocean front seating. You won't be disappointed.

Best view since you are RIGHT on the water. Service and food were amazing and the frozen drinks were good. Call ahead for a reservation. We ate at a lot of places this week but this was our favorite! We had the crab legs and surf & turf which made it more expensive, but they have less expensive options. Highly... More
