We've been attending the Tavern for 15 years and have never been disappointed with the food or the Jazz on Friday night. In fact we looked forward to it. Tonight the food was consistent with our expectations however the music was so loud that our table of six could not carry on a conversation. We were happy when they took... More

Tavern on the Waterfront (340-776-4328) is on the main downtown street in Charlotte Amalie, Dronningens Gade, facing the water. It is up a flight of stairs on the street, and although not hard to find, it may be easily overlooked if one were not on the lookout for it. The dining area surrounds a large horseshoe shaped bar in the... More

This place is upstairs so it doesn't get crowded, the Dinner was absolutely fantastic, very romantic atmosphere with white table clothes & all, however the lunch menu not as good, But don't miss this place for Dinner, you will love it!

We were here twice while we were in Charlotte Amalie. The first time it wasn't real busy and we enjoyed the Crab Cakes & Shrimp Scampi while chatting with the owner. He's had a very interesting life. The second time we were here, I went with items from the owner's background and had the Pierogies and Cabbage Rolls while my... More

This is definitely the best kept secret of St. Thomas. We stopped in St. Thomas via a cruise and found the Tavern on the Waterfront as we were wandering around downtown. 4 of us stopped in for a drink and then had a snack as well. The service has great, the food was marvelous and the view over the harbour... More

There aren't many places to eat in downtown Charlotte Amalie after 5:00pm. That being said, Tavern is one of the few. It is a great place to take advantage of happy hour (for the views of the harbor - not necessarily the drink deals). The food wasn't the best or worst we ate; however, for what you pay, it was...

Friday before Christmas is full of festivities in Charlotte Amalie: Miracle on Main St. Part of all the festivities is a boat parade through the downtown harbor with Christmas decorated boats. Best place to view this from during dinner: Tavern on the Waterfront. Never thought that not only kids would get super excited about this, but there were several hyper... More
