We visited here just this week for dinner. We found the prices we pretty typical for St.. Thomas. The chowder for the soup of the day was great! The grilled Cajun shrimp(my husbands pick) was too salty and we had to order extra pineapple salsa to call in down. And 6 Shrimp was a little small of a portion. The... More

Stopped in and ordered 4 appetizers, all were excellent but you cant miss the peel and eat shrimp, order a pound and extra old bay on the side. I recommend fish tales..oh, if your looking for a course on sushi, go Thursday but call ahead, reservations only for the class.

Had a great early dinner after a long day snorkeling and site seeing on St John. My wife an I ate a tasty dinner off the happy hour menu with some cocktails that were delicious and Strong! Great view, fresh food, happy enthusiastic staff. Very nice after a day in the sun.

The place was nice..can see boats docked just feet away. Service was faster than expect for our family of 5...we expected the slower island time but that was not the case here. Everyone had good food..but this is Informal casual fare and was exactly what we wanted. they had a power outage when we were there and my daughter was... More

The food was only fair for the price. It was good, but fish with rice/beans and plantains was $32 - way too much. The view is good, overlooking a marina. It's crowded, since it's in Red Hook. Maybe it's better and not so expensive for lunch - not sure.

As with most restaurants on the island, we have to import many of our ingredients to make sure they're of the freshest quality. Unfortunately, that comes at a premium price, but we do offer a happy hour menu with lots of great specials. I hope you'll get a chance to try that out next time you're in St. Thomas, Ellen,... More

Nice at firs sight, great happy hour drink special. We ordered the soup of the day which was a corn clan chowder, it was pretty yummy. We then ordered the Greek salad with tuna, it was nothing special. We also ordered the catch of the day with rice, plantains and a creole sauce, it was a small serving, bland and... More

Bland dishes aren't OK with us, Jen, and I'm sorry you felt that way. Were you able to let your server know? We would have been happy to take care of this while you were at our table. Let me know, but in the meantime, I'll definitely check in with our team. I know we can do better! Thanks, Kelley... More

So we went last night. We hit seated in 10 minutes which was just fine. We both ordered the catch of the day - different dishes though - and for some reason mine cost $4 more. Both were way overpriced - $28 and $34. Her's was bland and mine - blackened grouper, was a little tough. Both portions were tiny.... More

I'm really sorry, Paul. You shouldn't have felt rushed to finish your drinks, pay quickly or produce a tip -- that's just not OK with us, and I'll talk to the whole team about it right away. Aside from service, it's disappointing that you also weren't happy with your dinner. Most of our guests rave about our fresh catch, so... More
