Stopped in for a drink and to say hi to "Party Marty". Plan on stopping by in Jan/Feb to eat & another drink. Can't wait to try the Key Lime Pie and the Mango Cheese cake. Never guess I have a sweet tooth.

My husband and I enjoyed drinks and rum cake here. The owner and her daughter were working and both were very helpful and sociable. I think this is the best rum cake I've ever had, and my husband agreed!

Jens was suggested to us by a local travel agency. It is apparently a favorite with the downtown business owners. We felt at home the minute we walked in. The guy behind the bar was hilarious and seemed to know everyone. We tried the blackened Mahi Mahi sandwich and fried shrimp. The fish was fresh, but shrimp were frozen. The... More

Jens is a very good staple in St. Thomas. The food is very good I fully enjoyed the Fish and Chips that were perfectly made. The Key Lime Pie is a special recipe and is better than Key Lime pie in Key West. This pie is a must try as is the Bush Wacker drink. The staff are very friendly... More

The freshest Mahi- Jen's husband catches the fish- so delicious! Behind the blue tents- you cannot miss.

Jen's is a little out of the way (which is a good thing)! Go behind the blue tents & cross the park. A family owned joint, the food was great. I had the curried chicken roti- a Caribbean dish which is hard to find in this touristy place - and Cindy had a crab cake sandwich which I had to... More

This is exactly the type of place you want to find in foreign lands - much better than the obviously kitschy tourist spots closer to the main drag or near the cruise ship dock! We just happened upon it while walking through downtown Charlotte Amalie one afternoon trying to find a place for lunch. Man, was it ever a find.... More

We didn't find Jen's for nearly two weeks even though we walked by it most every day. It is a place just down from Government Hill in Charlotte Amalie where locals eat. Try to dine at a time when you can get a table. The food is very good and the atmosphere is charming. Quite interesting to watch locals and... More

My wife discovered this place by following a timeshare salesman, what a great find. The atmosphere is fun, the owner is great. A funny guy with tons of great local knowledge who is happy to tell you the great places around to visit. My wife and I shared a piece of Key Lime Pie, which was fantastic, different from other...

Rude and cost is not worth it at all! Avoid this place. Drinks didn't even taste like they had alcohol in them. Food was fried too much and the cost of a snack for 2 was $55. Good luck with that. With so many other places to choose from this is at the bottom of the list.....better yet not even... More
