Located at red hook marina next to ferry fish tales is a bar and outdoor restaurant with friendly service with view of marina. We had an easy and tasty breakfast before heading to beach. All locals recommend fish tales.

Food was excellent, and the bartender (Evy) was wonderful! She was our server as well, and she helped with drink and food decisions based on our likes and dislikes. Mike, the manager was extremely helpful and accommodating. Overall a great place to visit on the island!

The location in Red Hook is great. On a deck overlooking the bay so you can watch the boats come and go with a light ocean breeze. We were there for lunch. Fish and Chips were good. Fish is cod so not freshly caught in the Caribbean. Fries were not completely done. All in all, this may be the best... More

We stopped the 1st night for dinner. After trying the other dining places in Red Hook we ate there again for our last night. The service is great.

We ate at this restaurant the first night in St. Thomas and it really set the tone for our vacation. The local seafood and atmosphere was quite enjoyable and our waiter could not have been,ore helpful. As it turned out, he was from our "neck of the woods", Maryland. We would certainly return on our next trip to St.Thomas!

Went there twice during the week we stayed in St. Thomas. Love the tuna special (catch of the day) as well as the lobster. Fish and chips was a big hit with friends as well as the coconut shrimp. No one in our group had anything that was disappointing. Need to try it out - good view and good food.

If they say fresh catch, they mean it. Most of the selections are caught that day and brought in from the harbor that the restaurant is located on. Go with the grilled or blackened varieties to get the best flavor. The sides are nothing special, but the cold beverages and the ambiance of the fresh air dining area make up... More

Cocktails and fresh catch are what island life is all about! However, we wish you were more impressed with our sides. What didn't you like about them, Richard? Let us know and we'll do everything we can to show you a five-star visit next time! Take care, Reggie Poe and Kelley Olive, Owners More

We had dinner one night at this restaurant and the food was fair but the service was slow. There was a large party that had been seated just before us, so we were unlucky in that respect. The food was ok but not great.

We are a bit more laid back here on the island, but we shouldn't have been slow. We're sorry you weren't impressed, and we'd like to know more about what you ordered. "OK" just doesn't cut it for us -- we want every bite to wow you -- so let us know if you have any further feedback. We're all... More
