I am a huge scallops fan and was delighted to get the best I've ever had at Fish Hooks last month. My daughter, my wife and I had to go back 2 nights later to have them again. If you are a scallops fan, do yourself a favor and try them!

Have been here the last two years after fishing and always order the grilled oysters topped with cheese and the Oysters Rockefeller. Both are so good that you have to keep coming back after trying them. The mussels are also top notch as well as their drinks. This year we had the pleasure of Sierra being our bartender and she...

It was an ok meal, nothing special. The views were really nice. Service was very slow, food was average.

My husband and friends are huge seafood lovers and swear the fish sandwiches were the best ever! I had a shrimp pasta. Although tasty, for the extra price I didn't get that much shrimp. They also run out of items on the menu quickly so go early. Freshly caught and served daily, this is the "go to" place for seafood.... More

Those fish sammies are pretty good! So glad you and your husband loved them, but I wish you felt the same way about our Shrimp Pasta. We'll make sure it's chock-full of shrimp next time, so thanks for letting me know. Hope you'll come back and see us again, Tracie -- we'll have that Key Lime Pie waiting for you!... More

We always eat at Fish Tales when visiting the island. Fresh caught fish blackened on a salad - it doesn't get any better. The mahi, crab and corn chowder was a favorite this visit and the roasted potatoes were so good. DO NOT SKIP DESSERT HERE. It's worth the calories. Only downside is soda refills are extra - just be... More

Fish Tails is in Red Hook, next to the ferry dock for St John. The food is excellent, as was the service. The prices were reasonable for St Thomas and most resort areas. We enjoyed our food and it was very fresh and well done. With the number of restaurants on the island we did not go back since we... More

Since it was our first time in St. Thomas, I took every opportunity to ask people who lived on the island and people that had visited what they're favorite spot to eat was. I asked the concierge at the Ritz, the valet, and a couple from New York that we met and everyone said to hit up Fish Tails. My... More

This restaurant is on the water. You have a nice view of the bay and the food was reasonably priced and very good. We had the oysters and both had blackened grouper. The food was awesome as was the service. This was probably the best restaurant we ate at in Redhook.

The meals here run a little less than average for seafood on the island. I had the fresh catch of swordfish which was cooked great. My wife drug me back for a second meal to have the fried oysters which were also good.

I'm sorry you felt our dishes were a bit less than average than other area restaurants. We take pride in using the freshest ingredients we can get, and we think that quality comes through. However, it seems like you enjoyed them, and I hope we'll get to have you back for more swordfish and oysters next time you're in town!... More

We really enjoyed the view, friendly staff, fast service and great happy hour prices. Just a short drive from our condo in Sapphire Beach. It does get pretty busy!
