Great time for all

Had a great time here listening to Fiddler and his band while sipping rum and eating an exceptional shrimp roti. If you are loking for a relaxing fun time whether it's just you or a group head to Latitude 18.

A little off the beaten path but most drivers know where it is. The setting has that local, island vibe and was very relaxing. Take advantage of their free bug repellant as the mosquitos were a pest. The appetizers were good, the entrees a bit less so. The live music (nightly) was fun but it was a bit too loud... More

We were lucky enough to get a table right on the water. (bring bug spray) The food was fresh and full of spice and flavor. The band playing was just ok but seemed to be a local favorite. It was a country music band which is not my cup of tea. Our waitress talked to us for a while, telling... More

Local peeps hang here! Fun music and great food. They were out of the good wine, so we drank lesser quality than normal, but if you like rum, you will be happy. It is a typical low key hole in the wall bar where the locals hang out. It was a fun last night on the island. It is not... More

Cold beer, live music, tasty apps, and friendly folks are Lattitiude 18's trademark. Nothing fancy, but always a good time. Been that way for years, and hope it doesn't change. Be careful requesting a song from the band, you may have to get up on stage and sing it. I asked for "The Weight"...too many words, but fun.

I have been to St Thomas several times and had never heard of this place until my last trip there and now I plan on going back as much as possible. Near Red Hook, it's a favorite of the locals. It was described to me as a dive bar/restaurant but I disagree! Live music almost every night. Great food. We... More

This place was nice because it was right on the water. Very casual place. I believe they have a live band most nights. We only went for drinks. The bloody's were really good! The food looked good but we didn't stay to eat.

Very off the main road place but worth it! Outdoor setting, good food, great drinks, and fun live music! Locals go but were very friendly to us.
