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!!

Fun place to listen to live music

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.

We were turned on to Latitude 18 by some folks we were visiting with at our resort, as they had loved the live music when they had recently eaten there. We were in the Red Hook area on an excursion and decided to check it out for an early dinner. It's a real hole in the wall place, which we... More

This is a great beach bar that serves really good food. There was really fun live music (Sun Mountain Band) the night we were there. Try the shark bite appetizers.

Make no mistake it is beyond casual, like eating in an old rock bar complete with the band playing old rock standards. That said, the food was very good. We had Black sesame encrusted tuna, and Mahi that came with rice and mixed vegetables. The sauce was light and delicate - loved it. This is a place to go and... More

Right on the water in the Red Hook harbor, great live music, open air bar with way better than bar food. They have great specials and ice cold beers. If you are on vacation and want to sit in a place that "feels" like you are in the Caribbean, this is the place.

This is the place to be for live music and great food. When the Sun Mountain Band is on island and play here this place rocks! We had a group of 6 and got there early enough for seats. You have to be early around 6-6:30 pm to get seats before the band starts playing. No reservations. The Mahi Creole... More
