Description: 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.

Our Hotel recommend we go here for the outside dining - right on the ocean/beach. Great location and view. Had a lot of food choices - we had great service and the food was really good - way to full for dessert :-) Our server Joan was excellent - fun & friendly! Would definitely go again!

By comparison, Mimi's is easily double the price and offers less quality and value. For example, my large party ordered salmon. Both were over cooked. I didn't re-order and just sent it back, another came back raw and subsequently sent back without a replacement. The blackened tuna was difficult to eat. Was very gummy. The only main with good reviews... More

When you go to Mim's bring a lot of cash or a card with a high limit. If you order any item that says market price find out what the MP price is. I do not feel we got the quality of food or service we paid for. We orderd the house special Caribbean lobster it was good but not... More

What a wonderful, romantic restaurant right along the beach! We typically share meals, but we wish we had each ordered the seafood bisque--it was the best we've ever had! You won't be disappointed with your meal, service, or atmosphere here!

write on the beach. Great stuffed lobster though a little expensive. Rest of food was great. You can get a free drink from the Marriott Vacation Club desk

The food was excellent and the atmosphere was also excellent. Can't get any closer to the water than this restaurant. Pricey, but worth it!

The food was great, the location beautiful, but it was fairly expensive (even when comparing to other restaurants on an expensive island).

no signs but we got there. Walk the beach thru Iggys. Setting was right on the water. Very casual beach place. Food was rightfully done, drinks fine. Service was excellent. Well done

We spent 1 week in Bolongo Bay, St. Thomas (USVI) and just had to go back to Mim's a second time to order the exact same food as the first time we were there. Location os just fabulous right at the oceanfront. Service is very efficient and still very relaxed. Food was really, really good. We had tuna with rise,... More
