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.

Beautiful setting and GOOD food

We ordered their Lobster curry and Crab stuffed lobster. They were HUGE and we took several pounds of lobster to our vacation home to eat the next day. One of those Caribbean lobsters is more than enough for two people. Delicious food and good service. We will definitely visit them again... read more

We revisited MIM's Seaside Bistro because we have always had fantastic food and service. The venue is unparalleled anywhere, the dining is divine, the service is superb, and this is the ONLY place you can find Mim herself!

While Mim's offers a beautiful view and good food, the service was lacking. I would not recommend it for people looking for a nice night out, simply based on the lack of attention received from the wait staff.

The food was decent, but with minimal vegetarian options. The grouper was good but nothing special. You are really paying for the beach views.

The hotel concierge recommended this restaurant. It does have a beautiful view but the food is average and so is the service. One good feature is that you can walk to Iggy's after dinner and enjoy the music!

This is now our third time coming to Mims on a family vacation. We've eaten there in the past, and have had lousy food and lousy service. But because the atmosphere is so clean and beautiful, we continue to come back. My father got the grouper dijionaise one year, and it is out of this world. The grouper is tender... More

Had dinner at Mim's while in St. Thomas. We enjoyed the open air beach atmosphere and the food was good. The place is a bit crowded (popular with the tourists) and service was rushed to make room for the next diners. While their menu is broad it leans heavily to seafood and they do a good job in its prep... More

Our driver recommended this delightful spot for an early dinner! the service was great...the food even better...Fabulous seafood and local fare with a spectacular view of the waterfront. The lobster was delicious. We had our grandchildren and they were treated well. We were tempted to go again. It was so delicious and relaxing!
