Description: Mim’s Seaside Bistro is a beautiful oceanfront restaurant in St. Thomas...
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 view, good food

View is really great. The casual atmosphere is fun and the service was engaging. The food was really good two. Location is a little surprising as you go into a condo complex and once downstairs you feel like you are in a resort! Feels like a hidden gem.

We greatly enjoyed our dinner because of being right at water's edge, and the staff were very friendly. But the server didn't really get the concept of food allergies, because even though I showed her my card with 4 specific spice allergies, the calamari arrived with one of the spices in the sauce. And then the lobster (which she said... More

This was just what we were looking for. A delicious seafood dinner seaside. I was worried it would be "touristy" but it wasn't. It is family owned (the owner's son waited on us and was super-friendly). Service was good--the ambiance was excellent and the food was delicious too. I had the famous curry lobster (which was very good and a... More

Our friends wanted good seafood. Thursday they have all you can eat shrimp for $29.00 a person. Suckers! They lost money that night. Excellent view, friendly chatty staff. We ate here twice. Highly recommend

I have been going to the Caribbean for the last 20 years, and have made over 9 trips to St. Thomas. I've always enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Mim's. However, last week my wife was served a bad cut of Tuna. It was difficult for her to even cut through it. My tuna was fine. The waitress was nice... More

We were not expecting much from this place but the food was excellent. My husband had the sesame tuna and I had the wahoo. Pretty pricey but worth it.

Small menu -this is ok - but to my biggest surprise, they deep-fried my fish... So the restaurant has a good location, nice view, OK service, but the chef...well cooking is not their strength.

Mims Restaurant has a great seaside location, and good local seafood. Dinner under the stars, with the Caribbean Sea at your side, is a neat experience. Local lobster, snapper are very good. Limited parking, but worth the trip.
