We came here on our first night on St. Thomas. Really great place to eat. We had some entrees and supplemented with some sushi. We kind of wished we had just had sushi. The entrees were really good, but the sushi was fantastic. Very fresh, tasty, and inventive. One thing we had were the sushi tacos made with crispy wontons... More

We ate here twice during our week in the USVI, and really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Service was excellent on both occasions. Moderately priced for St Thomas/Red Hook, and the quality of food was near the upper end. A few favorites were the Fish Cakes (crab cake consistency) and Shrimp Cocktail (by the pound) for appetizers, Swordfish and Mahi-Mahi... More

chose the fresh catch. Option for grilled, blackened or fried. It was delicious, and a decent sized portion. Also had a tail-whacker, their version of the Bushwhacker, but with peanut butter and chocolate. Awesome drink, and strong too

We went here in search of local seafood or fish and was quickly told by our server that there was no local fare at Fish Tails, so, because we were hungry and didn't want to go somewhere else, we opted for the grill chicken sandwiches, which were okay. The view of the marina was spectacular. Service was good. The food... More

We wish that your dishes had been just as memorable as the view, but we're sorry that we weren't quite what you expected. Most of our catch is fresh, so I'll be sure to discuss this with our team right away so everyone's on the same page. Thanks for letting me know about this. Best, Kelley Olive, Owner More

We had a great time here and really enjoyed the food/drinks. Nice to be right on the water watching the boats come into the marina.

Deep fried but great view. Prices for the food are not fantastic.. Go across the street to XO instead for a real meal. Eat here for snacks and drinks..

Had their tuna tataki sushi roll which was alright. I come from Vancouver where good japanese food is found everywhere. Their tuna poke was good but pricey ($16). We ordered half a dozen oysters (a buck a shuck during happy hour). It wasn't that great. Still had sand and particles in it. Wasn't very well-shucked. The meat was still stuck... More

There shouldn't have been any sand in those oysters, Jenny, so I'm sorry we fell short. Thanks for letting me know, and for your compliments about our dishes. It sounds like you had a pretty good time, so hopefully we'll get to earn that fifth star next time you're in St. Thomas. Best, Kelley Olive, Owner More

You can have fresher and better fish elsewhere on the island. We came for an outstanding seafood experience referred by the locals, the place fell short of our expectations.

Bad experience but the restaurant was recommended by several so we gave it a go. We were seated by the manager after a short wait. He actually mentioned seating us with another sever because the one that covered the table just go set a big party and he didn't want us to be competing with a large group for service.... More

Yes, it seems that you must have caught us on an off night. There's no excuse for that, and I apologize, but I want to assure you that waits like this and spotty service aren't like us at all. You can be sure that I'll follow up with our team, but I hope we'll get the chance to show you... More

Nice place right next to where you catch the ferry's. Food was good, Again I had a Mahi Mahi sandwich, this time lightly blackened, it was really good. Don't order Salmon or fish and chips unless you realize that are not native fish to the area, if you are fine with that then order it. We just wanted to order... More
