Great Location on the bay. Sharna was a friendly cheerful server I wanted the Lobster but won't pay $70 for a #1 chicken Lobster. I guess I'm cheap. I had the local wahoo in a creole sauce. I felt the fish was over cooked but every one else loved their fish. My wife's almondined mahi was... read more

Mim's is always a great choice. Delicious food and attentive service. The atmosphere is outstanding - right on the water. We visit St. Thomas every year, and Mim's is always a "must do"!

Lovely evening with great food and great service. We had the coconut curry lobster, splitting the medium lobster. More than enough for two people. Great evening.

This is our second dinner at Mim's, and we thoroughly enjoyed the open air dining under the stars right next to the water. The food was outstanding - I had the Wahoo Island Style and my wife had the scallops - grilled, rather than breaded, at her request. They were most accommodating in changing the preparation of menu items. Both... More

We liked this restaurant well enough to come back a second time in the same week and we came back for the snapper almandine We would have loved to try the lobster but at $50 and up, we decided to stay with the more reasonable meal. My husband also tried the lobster and crab in a cream sauce and thought... More

We returned, as we do every year, to dine at a seaside table at Mims. Once again, Priscilla was our waitress and she did her usual excellent job of making sure we had a wonderful experience. The curried lobster is still one of the best entrees on the island and their key lime pie was particularly good.

Our family of 7 stopped in with reservations for a week night dinner. This little bistro has awesome Bolongo Bay views, great food, and outstanding service. Hard to find around seaside condos but well worth the discovery. Our kids and adult family were warmly greeted and treated very well (thanks "Priscilla") and we enjoyed good seaside food. Guests ranged from... More

We made our reservation the day before by personally visiting the restaurant. We stood next to a kind older gentleman as he wrote our name at the top of the reservation sheet for the next day. We arrived and the hostess could not find our reservation; she questioned who we were several times but without much hesitation sat us. The... More

The view was amazing and the service was superb. I have never experienced service of such magnitude.

We've eaten here since 1995 and the food is consistently excellent. They have a broad selection and will cook items to order if you ask them to. We enjoy the many types of fresh fish that appears on their menu every day.
