Latitude 18 is one of the last remaining true island, open air restaurant in St. Thomas. Come experience the rustic charm of this 25 year old landmark! The road is bumpy but would you rather go to a bad bar at the end of a good road or a GREAT bar at the end of a bad road? Latitude 18 sits on the edge of the azure ocean. We serve Caribbean and American cuisine! And the FAMOUS "Shark & Bake" Sandwich which was featured on the Food Network and is available ONLY at Latitude 18. Renowned for LIVE ENTERTAINMENT there's live music and dancing EVERY NIGHT OF THE WEEK! Latitude 18, THE LIVE MUSIC CAPITAL OF ST. THOMAS Latitude 18.....Great Food.....Live Music!!

Live music and a great atmosphere!

Super casual place off the marina, great for a few drinks or for dinner. Always a good mix of locals and tourists and you can always count on it for some great live music.

Great local color...good food...fun and relaxed atmosphere...cool breeze off the water and nice look back at the lights of town. Friendly staff and laid back style. Great duo onstage. Just what we were looking for for a nice evening. Definitely recommend!

Where the locals go for a beachy/island atmosphere. There was a band playing when we went at night. The place is sitting on the ocean where you can dock up and eat. I got the chicken tenders so it wasn't bad and it wasn't awesome. Others liked their food and they did serve big portions. I would definitely come here... More

Great laid back atmosphere. Casual and fun. Good food and friendly staff. The music on Saturday nights is outstanding, Why Not performed and rocked the house with 70's music. I knew all the words and danced the night away!!!

We got a tip from a Ritz employee- bad choice. Overpriced. Terrible band. The guy who mentioned Farrah Fawcett hair explains the band. Food was below average. Worst restaurant experience on the island. Slow service, one server and about 15 tables. There are many other good choices in St Thomas. Don't make the mistake we did.

Don't freak out when you think you are on the road to nowhere. At the end of the bumpy ride you will find a quaint little island bar with excellent food and great music every night. It's not fancy, but Rick, the proprietor, will certainly make you feel welcome. The veggie burgers are the best! I totally recommend them to... More

Arrived Sat night 5/16 to celebrate a birthday - took taxi down dark gravel road, not sure if we were being kidnapped. Arrived to find the patio practically deserted and obnoxious cover band playing. I think the name of the band was "Why Not" - I can think of several reasons. The lead singer had a fan blowing into his... More

Manage your expectations, and you won't be disappointed. Our two visits to Latitude recently (at Vessup Beach across from American Yacht Harbor) were very different, thus the "average" rating. Our first visit was with a large group. Our server had no problem with separate checks. Our food came quickly. It was very good. Our second trip was also with a... More
