We lived in the VI for 14 years, in Vessup Bay. Every time we go back we love to visit Latitude 18 with our friends. The food is good, the prices affordable, and the entertainment is grand.

Husband and I dined on a Saturday night. Band was not great, but it didn't ruin our night. Food was so so. Husband had Shrimp Roti which he didnt finish. Only about 4 shrimp and the flavor (allspice or cloves?) was so overpowering. I had the seared tuna, which was good, but encrusted in WAY too many black sesame seeds.... More

Some may think that this place is hard to find. GPS will give you conflicting routes. Once you get there and park you are presented with a simple bar and restaurant. They have live music here at night quite often as I understand it. I won't rate this establishment based on the band I saw as that would not be... More

Loved the location, food, drinks and nightly entertainment. Located across the bay from Redhook right on the ocean. We went for lunch, great sandwiches and went for dinner 3 times. Entertainment was wonderful, we saw 3 different groups and all were great.

We've been going to St. Thomas for almost 20 years. We never go without visiting Latitude at least once on our trip. It's the perfect place to hear some local music, have some good food and drinks, and experience island life as it should be. Extremely casual. Sits right on the water close to the Ritz Carlton hotel and the... More

Fun very casual atmosphere for laid-back atmosphere and very decent drinks and food. There are mismatched tables and chairs in an open-air setting; there is a bar in the center but the vibe is suitable for families especially early, but also later, it seems, though that may vary with the band. A few people got up to dance for a... More

A lot of your reviews are right on the money - getting to Latitudes is terrible (unless you are on a boat), sometimes the food is a little off, sometimes the place can be a little messy but give me a few nights eating there, telling lies, and listening and singing with Dick Solberg and the patrons and staff, makes...

Visited Latitude 18, near Vessup beach (across from Red Hook) last weekend. Had a good meal, and really enjoyed watching "Why Not", a local band that plays mostly 70's music. Our food arrived quickly, in spite of the relatively large crowd. Great place to spend a Saturday night.
