Good food and good view

Our first night here this year we had a very good dinner, with a wonderful waitress Ciara. This morning we had a good breakfast. Last time we were here we have a nice lunch here. So no matter when you're hungry this is a good place to be.

We both had the seafood platter with scallops, key crab, shrimp, and an add on lobster tail. Was expensive, but a great splurge if you love shellfish. Paired with a nice Pinot Grigio. Also had breakfast one day. I had the lobster omelet that was on the menu with Brie and mushrooms, but came with Brie and spinach. Very good... More

We dined at Fish Tails last night and had a great local seafood dinner. Grilled Caribbean lobsters. Local swordfish and some local wahoo sushi. Kelly our waitress was the BEST from drinks to dessert! While nothing in the caribbean is inexpensive the service and freshness of the food make it well worth the trip to Red Hook! Thanks Kelly

From start to finish, it sounds like Kelly showed you the type of service that we're all about! I'm also happy to hear that our kitchen didn't disappoint either and that you enjoyed all the fresh seafood entrees. It's great to know your experience with us was totally worth the trip. Hope to have you back next time you're in... More

Got back from St. John, Fish tails is at the harbor. Ordered the Crispy Fish platter. Had to ask where on the menu to find fish& chips. It was a tempura battered cod, fresh as could be. Light batter, 5 pieces of fish. We should have shared a platter. You had a choice of sides, I skipped the fries for... More

I'm so glad you made my place a stop after your ferry ride from St. John. The Crispy Fish Platter is a favorite of mine, so it's great to know you found the dish to be delicious and the portion satisfying. You can have the rum plantains for dessert any day! Safe travels, Kelley Olive, Owner More

We ate here 4 times in a 2 week period. Food and service were good, but the flies are a real problem. One of the waitresses claimed that Caribbean lobster was better than Maine, so I tried it. She was wrong.

I noticed you were visiting from GA, and I know you have lots of options when it comes to dining out in St. Thomas, so I'm happy you made our place a stop more than once. It's a bummer to hear you weren't impressed with the lobster, but I'm glad you enjoyed the other food that was ordered. Best, Kelley... More

Grilled lobster was very good but expensive. Fish Sandwich was very fresh. Worth it though. View was nice and staff friendly.

Went for dinner over some options because I appreciated the way the owner responded to trip advisor feedback. I was hoping to meet her and give a personal thank you but she was not available. My wife had the snapper and mahi soup. Would highly recommend both. I gave a four because we ordered homemade mozzarella sticks and they were... More

We love this place. Friendly bartenders, excellent local caught fish, great and creative sushi... And the tails often turn into 'tales'. Every sailor type passes through here at one time or another and passes on their wisdom..
