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!!

Don't let bumpy road to Latitude deter you. It is a get place for lunch or dinner. They have live entertainment that is always sure to please. Rick and staff are always pleasant and a good time is had each time we are there.

Fun place to grab a beer and burger and listen to some live music. Down a very bumpy road . The food was good and the view across to red hook pretty. Very casual place

This is a place that we had missed in our visits to St. Thomas in all the years we have been going (it was mentioned by our sailing captain). The food was good and the house band was incredibly entertaining. It definitely has the flavor of old St. Thomas. Bottom line, it is a wonderful and fun place with decent... More

Missed it last year since the taxi driver talked us out of it, I think it was because he didnt want to drive down the bumpy road. Looks like the road was patched up a bit this year and much better. He drove our own car this time and had a nice time. Good food, good spot along the water... More

One of the few old and original Caribbean bars left and the atmosphere is great with live music and good food. A must if you grab a mooring ball or a slip in Red Hook!!!

That pretty much says it all! Who makes chicken parmesan with swiss cheese? Service was very slow. Woman two tables over was so drunk she had to be carried out. Eat elsewhere!

Every time I go to St. Thomas I stop at Latitude 18 on a weekend night for fun, fellowship, great drinks, a good show, and of course good food. The place was jumping so get here by 6 or so to get a table under cover. Otherwise they set up extra tables farther out to accommodate the crowd. It takes... More

As previously reviewed, this is a great little local place- AND you must go! The food is fine, enough variety to satisfy any appetite, portions fill you up with tasty, fresh items- try the Mahi in any preparation-- YUM! The "road" is part of the fun-- just go slowly! We came here 3 nights out of 7, just to catch... More

Half the fun of Latitude 18 is the road (and I use that term very loosely) getting there. Once you brave the travel, the food is stuff you would find in any good diner. Live entertainment occurs nightly, and, located across from the American Yacht Harbor in Red Hook, you have a nice waterfront view. Pleasant way to spend an... More
