Great atmosphere

Stopped on our way back from a morning outing to St. John's. The food was good but the atmosphere is what will get us to go back. Sitting outside on the water never goes bad.

People kept telling us to go here so we did, expecting bar food, but it wasn't. The food was actually really good and had a good view also! I'll go back for sure.

I went to the Fish Tail for lunch but the lunch menu hadn't yet come out. I opted for a crab benedict breakfast that was tasty and novel. The service was good but the star of the experience was the dining room itself - very open with a nice sea breeze making harbor watching a real joy. The pace was... More

Great Family spot for breakfast, lunch, or dinner in Red Hook. Service was very good and food was better. Reasonably priced for St. Thomas. My daughter especially loved the chocolate cake. Located right next to the American Yacht Club on the harbor. Ferry building is next door, so it's convenient if your coming or going to St. Johns or BVI's.

Glad we're a convenient stopping place for you folks. It thrills me to hear that you're such a fan of our food and service -- we're happy to cut a slice of chocolate cake for your daughter anytime. We'd love to see you guys again soon -- early in the morning or later in the evening! All the best, Kelley... More

My first stop and go to place. I've never had a bad meal. Breakfast ,lunch or dinner. I've had almost everything on the menu from oysters to burgers, lobster to salads. Live their breakfast menu but don't get there enough for that!

Seemed like there was an in-crowd. Did not really feel welcome. Some of the food was really expensive. The best tables were reserved for "others". Eat one meal here just to see what all the fuss was about.

The last thing we'd want is for you to feel that you aren't part of the crowd. We're all family here, so I want to personally apologize if this wasn't the impression you got. We'd love to have you back again to really show you the warm vibe that we're known for if you're ever back in the area. Until... More

We tried Fish Tails in Red Hook based on reviews we had read on TripAdvisor. Although the parking in Red Hook is challenging to put it mildly, it is very much worth it to have a meal at this casual little place on the water. The mahi sandwich was delicious as was the crab sandwich. The food was very fresh... More

So glad to hear you enjoyed both the sandwiches, the vodka strawberry lemonade, and the service -- I'll be sure to pass your compliments along to Sally. I'm also honored to hear that you would've tried us a few more times, but I understand how nice it is to shop around while on vacation! In any case, we'd love to... More

At the urging of several people we decided to eat at Fish Tails. Several had caught fish and brought to the restaurant to have cooked. Obviously this is the way to go. I was not impressed by the food. Ordered a shrimp poboy and it was hard to find the shrimp. 4 small total and tough as they were over... More

I'm sorry to hear that you found our food lackluster. As I'm sure you heard from talking to others, we strive to offer you the freshest, tastiest seafood experience on the island, and it seems unlike us to serve a po'boy that isn't loaded with shrimp. We apologize for missing the mark in this situation, but do know that our... More

Fish Tails sits in the neighborhood known as Redhook. The area is congested and parking is a challenge unless you pay the $3 US to use the lot next to the barge terminal. Do that if you're driving. Fish Tails' menu offers a good variety of fish and other items, all of which are cooked and spiced very well. The... More
