Very interesting place--there is a nature trail through the hillside, a small aviary, and some fantastic views from the rooftop overlook. Located on the north side of the island overlooking Magen's Bay. And the food was wonderful--my husband had the stuffed lobster and I had the ahi tuna--both were delicious and cooked perfectly. Definitely worth the trip for several reasons!

Blue Orchid and the Guest house overlook Megan's Bay. The full moon lit up the entire area, making the scenery stunning. Our food was very fresh and delicious -- choices of several seafood dishes and meat dishes with several desert choices. Great Christmas Eve Dinner!

This was the first restaurant I ate at on my visit to St. Thomas because my rental was very close by. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was a fine dining place. There's free parking. If there's New Zealand Lamb on the menu, get it! I'd never tried lamb before and decided to be adventurous. I wasn't let... More

this restaurant was recommended n we read good reviews but should have been told when we made reservations that only a limited holiday menu would be available - after driving 30 minutes to get there we decided to stay - what a mistake. The salads were good but the dinners were diner food at best at restaurant prices. Both our... More

A resident friend told us this was her favorite for great food. We invited her and another couple for a party of five on a Wednesday. There is a bit of a trick to finding the place but we download the "Waze" software (free) to our smart phone and it took us right to the driveway. The place is 'casual... More

While on St. Thomas the places we ate dinner at included Havana Blue, Caribbean Fish Market, Old Stone Farmhouse, Oceana and The Lobster Grille. The Blue Orchid was the best overall dining experience, followed by the Old Stone Farmhouse and the Caribbean Fish Market. Highly recommend getting there before dark to walk around a bit as the views of the... More

My family had dinner here and it was one of the best meals I've EVER had! The sign says they're open at 4, but the bar opens at this time. The dining room opens at 5 (this is stated clearly in their website, but not the sign outside), so we were a little early. This was fine as we got... More
