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.

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

It's out in the middle of no where on a dirt road. Extremely pricey especially for the location. Would not recommend.

We have been to lattitude 18 on a couple of occasions. At night time we enjoyed dinner and music. The ribs were excellent! During the day this a nice place to take a break from the sun and enjoy a cold refreshment. The atmosphere is laid back and relaxing. We were able to walk here from the Elysian so we... More

We stopped by Latitude 18 for a couple of cold drinks after spending the most of the afternoon snorkeling and we ended up staying for several hours! The locals and off the beaten path outside harbor location are the charms to this bar! Our bartender, Molly, was just delightful! Everyone was so friendly and didn't make us feel like tourists,...

While visiting our son who lives on Island, he suggested we visit here. He called it! It reminds us of an Old Key West musical haunt. Great and fun music, lively waitstaff and fun drinks! Many couples were dancing and the band played a good combo of music. We wish we had made a trip on our last night there... More

Stopped in after dinner for a drink and check out the band. We always enjoy Latitude 18. Went on a Saturday night. Good band playing oldies music. Very much enjoyed a couple hours of relaxing by the water with some good tunes. As always, the drive there is an adventure.
