Outside of our resort food, this would be 2nd on my list. We had a great waiter, wonderful food and just a really really good atmosphere all around.

One of the best meals on my trip. The sushi was delicious. Remember to order the key lime pie!!!! Great Outdoor seating. Parking can be a problem. Call ahead if during season.

We have been to Fish Tails several times over the past 4 years of travel to St. Thomas, USVI. The meals are always great with generous servings. They also will cook your own fish if you get lucky on the charters. Usually don't have to wait but if they have large parties you may have to remember that "island time"... More

Fish Tails was recommended by an acquaintance who spends a couple of months on the island every year. The environment was pleasing and the service was excellent. Most of my family doesn't eat much that comes out of the water so our group of five ordered grilled chicken, fried chicken, grilled fish, and fried shrimp. Everyone was in agreement after... More

The atmosphere definitely gets an A+, but the food was just average. My husband and I went for dinner on a Saturday night and were seated right away. My husband ordered the grilled lobster and I ordered their catch of the day. Both of our pieces of fish were very overcooked. For a $70 entree you expect the grilled lobster... More

had lunch here during my stay. The staff was very friendly and recommended the Grouper. It was a terrific sandwich and I washed it all down with a Key Lime Pie frosty drink...fabulous. Stop in a have a bite to eat before you take the ferry to St John.

We sat down and studied the drink menu and decided on Patron margaritas. Nope cant have them, they are out of Patron. Funny on the way in on the board they were advertising Patron specials. So, we ordered different drinks and when the waiter comes back to take our order for dinner he informs me they are out of my... More

sugarmag13, it's embarrassing to hear we were out of so many things during your visit. That's a rarity for us, and I know if you came by today it wouldn't be the case. Of course that's no excuse, and I want you to know I'll be checking with my staff to make sure it doesn't happen again. It does sound... More

People kept recommending Fishtails, including staff at the Ritz, but it really wasn't on our radar. We ended up there due to a last minute change in plans and had a delicious breakfast (with a yummy Bloody Mary). The atmosphere is great since you are outside, with a roof/shade & a great breeze, looking out into the marina at the... More

A change in plans is much easier to deal with when there's a Bloody Mary involved! So glad you had a chance to give us a try, and that you came back for breakfast the very next day -- now that's a compliment! Come back and see us next time you're in town. After all, you still need to join... More

This restaurant was absolutely excellent when we visited them on our trip to St. Thomas. The appetizers were great and the catch of the day was outstanding. Great view on the waterfront and extremely friendly and helpful staff.
