Not Being Mum about Mim's

Mim's was recommended to us by Marriott staff & by a family member, and we're glad they did. Set in an attractive cove in Charlotte Amalie, we took cabs to-and-fro. Seating choices were either the under roof-covering or under the stars. We enjoyed the latter and relished the 3 different meals... read more

A little hard to find, but worth the effort. Delightful staff, friendly and efficient in a tucked-away spot right on the water. Many outdoor and "indoor" tables where you can almost touch the water. I had perhaps the best fish dish ever in their Grouper with Dijonaise Sauce. I'd go back there for another taste always

We had a great dinner at this restaurant. All the food was really tasty! Order the Caribbean lobster, it's super good! The service was great too. It's a small kitchen but the food is amazing!

We had a great meal here- the curried lobster was enjoyed by all. The wahoo was a little overcooked and dry. One person had chicken fettuccine alfredo, and it was surprisingly good for a seafood restaurant. The setting really couldn't be better!

The setting is lovely---on the ocean front, under the stars, gentle music in the back round. Very romantic. That's the plus. Our waiter was great--very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. On the down side was the food and wait time. For the price , the food it was decent, but nothing to rave about. I would expect for $28+ entrees, it... More

This place was highly recommended to us. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't as great as we'd expected. Hubby had the lobster, and I had the salmon. I've had much better meals for far less money, but I wasn't sitting on St. Thomas eating them either, so it's all relative. A little hard to find, but it was a fun... More

Great restaurant right on the water. The atmosphere is great. All the staff is super nice especially Joan. We make a point to dine there more than once while we visit St Thomas each year. Highly recommend!

I really wanted to love this restaurant. Our party of 4 came to Mim's with open minds and a very relaxed schedule. To be clear, our waiter was excellent. This is why I'm giving this review 2 stars instead of 1. He was well-informed, charismatic, and...as was necessary...very apologetic for whatever was happening back in the kitchen. He ended up...

This restaurant is tucked away in a cozy romantic part of the island. The service was impeccable, and the staff was kind and and very friendly. I had a seafood pasta, which was good, but the main catch of the day (that I stole from my fiance's plate) was incredible! I believe it was red snapper. My son's lobster, was... More
