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.

Great Food, OK Service

Iggy's was shut down to the public for a special event, so we went to Mim's, as it was right next to Iggy's. The food turned out to be very good, although a tad on the more expensive side, though not that bad. Of course we got cold adult drinks, which were pretty good.

You don't go here for the drinks! You go here for a great beach location with all you can eat peal and eat shrimp on Thursday nights, let's face it... This was our second trip to St. Thomas and our second to Mim's! The service is so so and the drinks are watered down, shrimp is great!

I'm going to keep this very short and simple: We went with a party of 8 including a mix of families and everyone from ages 6 to 60 were extremely pleased. The staff is great, very casual and relaxed atmosphere. The view is just absolutely perfect, it's located right by the beach in a small cove so it is quiet,... More

Reservations are a must! Great food and lovely atmosphere -- beautiful view of the ocean. Crab dip appetizer is delicious. I had shrimp scampi and my husband had surf and turf. Bisque soup wonderful as well. It is definitely off of the beaten path, but worth the trip!

Beautiful location...off the beaten path. The ones that you like to find...but this one was so disappointing. We made a reservation...or thought we did until we showed up and were forced to wait 40 minutes to be seated. Vernita (sp?) was at the hostess stand and asked us to sit in the small bar area. We watched as 2 parties... More

Mim's was recommended by the concierge at Marriott's Frenchman's Cove where we stayed on St Thomas.The restaurant was just a short taxi ride from our Villa. We were seated at the half moon shaped tables that front the ocean which created a beautiful and romantic setting for our dinner. The staff at Mim's was as friendly and as helpful as... More

Mim's sits in a scenic, outdoor location right on the beach/ocean. The wait staff is wonderfully attentive and full of island humor. The menu isn't loaded with choices or very creative, yet the food is good and portions generous. Other than Conch fritters there's not much that's anything Caribbean/local. This is true of every restaurant we tried on this island... More

Mim's is away from the noise of big resorts, Charlotte Amalie and other congested places. While Bolongo Bay is not the most scenic bay on the island, the atmosphere at Mim's is great. It is an open air bistro right on the water. Both times we have been we have sat at one of the tables closest to the bay,... More

Mim's Seaside Bistro was tucked away and a little hard to find but once you arrived the food views atmosphere and staff was well worth it. A nice dressy casual attire is perfect for the windy dinner.
