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.

I've been going to Mim's since first visiting St. Thomas in 2004, and every year after that. I found Mim's based on a recommendation of the concierge at the Marriott. Located on Bolongo Bay, on the southeastern end of St. Thomas, the place is a little difficult to find at night due to dark roads. There is a large sign... More

Location is outstanding with such a wonderful view. Our food was also great with huge portions cooked to perfection. It was one of our best meals on the island!

Seeing Mim's receive so many positive reviews and a 2013 TripAdvisor Award of Excellence makes me want to vomit. We had serious issues with the service (more on that below), but based on food and atmosphere alone, the place would've still received only 3 stars. The conch fritters ($12) were smaller than at most places and tasted just OK. I... More

We ate here on the last night of our 3 week visit to St. Thomas. It was the grand finale and delicious! It was 6 minutes from Bluebeards beach club and tucked away off the road and next to the water. LOVED It!

Went there with coworkers and was rushed by waiter to order, was super rude.Food was tasty but its a shame of the service..2nd time in a yr and a half and same bad service. Say they can't split the bill more than two ways because they arent "technologically sound" but they ended up doing so anyways... Will not be going... More

I had a steak and my husband had fish. We both agreed this was the best meal we had the whole week we were in St. Thomas. The only down fall, bring the bug stray because they did not do a good job to keep them away.

We eat here every trip to St Thomas and have loved it. This time however, the $200 price for our 2 lobster dinners was not worth it. The atmosphere can't be beat as it is right on the ocean, but the food this time disappointed.

Location is great couldn't get any closer to the ocean. The food is perfect. Service is great. Finding this gem is a challenge. Getting directions when none of the locals know the road numbers lol. Parking is difficult all over the island.

Went here 3 times while in St. Thomas. The service and food were exceptional! Had lobster one night and Shrimp Creole another night, both very delicious. Will definitely return when I visit St. Thomas next.
