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.

Everyone raved about this restaurant so for my friend's birthday dinner we decided to try it. Service was poor and the food was average at best with my meal served cold and another person in my party served the entirely wrong dish. For the price i expected better.

This place has awesome food and it literally is right off the beach!!!! The waves are crashing right by you as your are dining. The only downfall is the service is not that great for the price. For that price you can eat at The Ritz and have top notch service and great seafood too!

The locals recommend this place, but I was totally umimpressed. - The signature curry lobster was awful - it was SWEET. It tasted like candied lobster. And it was unbelievably expensive - $60 for half a tail. Insane. I don't know why we went along with this very obvious tourist ripoff. Surely Carribbean lobster are easy to get there! There... More

Mim's was highly recommended by locals as the place for lobster, so I had their specialty. Surprisingly, it was just okay. The way locals raved about the coconut curry, I was expecting a taste sensation not of this world, but it was a little on the tame side. And the flies that swarmed around my food the instant it arrived... More

We love this restaurant. We visit St. Thomas every year and plan to eat at Mim's at least twice per visit! Love the all you can eat shrimp - which is wonderfully seasoned and delicious. Then we have to have a 2nd trip to eat our Mim's favorites including the Curry Lobster. We bring friends and family with us each... More

Our meal was very good, but not exactly as I ordered it. The staff is friendly and the view is to die for.

We were here in September, 2014, for dinner. The food was pretty good - nothing to write home about, but no complaints at all. The view, though, was fantastic! It's right on the water, with waves breaking about 20 feet below you.

Go! Stop searching and go to Mims. We had the curry lobster (amazing) and shrimp, scallop and lobster linguini (spicy and SOOO gosh darn good). Had a great wine selection and the wine bottles were the most reasonable I've seen on the island. Uber happy staff (they were actually singing in the kitchen - was a great vibe)! LOVED IT!!

What a fantastic location, right on the beach. Seafood to die for-the wahoo was spectacular and huge-loved the spicy creole sauce it was served with.

We went there upon recommendations from our Marriott concierge. We were not disappointed. We sat at a table overlooking the ocean. It started raining and the staff closed the open view with a plastic curtain. When it stopped they reopened. They served a complimentary rum punch which was very good. I tried having a different fish dinner every night of... More
