AMAZING view and wonderful place to try!!

We had been to St Thomas SEVEN time and had never heard of this place until last week! We found out it had been open 9 years and they do NOT advertise...it is only word of mouth. A wonderful couple from INDIANA relocated and took over this business and it is amazing. A quote from the couple that... read more

Have been to island view several times and taken family and friends there when visiting. Steaks are grat, view is wonderful, and the make your own honor bar is fun and takes the wait out of ordering another drink. The menu is limited, as with seating, and parking. They are typically open Thurs-Sun I think so reservations recommended but definitely... More

This place was really cool. It was much easier to find than expected. Gorgeous view - amazing salad bar. The food was very good. The honor bar means you make your drinks as strong as you want. Parking was tricky, but we made it work. Be sure to have a reservation!

We have been sailing for about 10 days in the British Virgin Islands and spent one night in St. Thomas prior to returning to the United States. One of us had a friend in St. Thomas who recommended the Island View Guest House restaurant. The restaurant is located at the top of a mountain overlooking the entirety of the Charlotte... More

It's been said before but I'll say it again....this is a great steak!! Cooked to perfection, served by a great server, topped with a beautiful view of St Thomas. You will find no better place to enjoy all the islands have to offer.

Ron grills a mean steak! I love mine, "Pittsburg rare," and he knew how to bring it to me still mooing! One section of his grill...a real griller's grill...is set to "Nuke" and sears the outside while leaving the inside rare. My wife's Mahi that night also was done to perfection. An "poorman/pourman's" bar for drinks is great as I... More

This was my second trip there and once again I loved the food and the overall experience. The concept of this place is amazing. They let you pour your own drinks and You just let them know how many you had at the end of the dinner. I ordered the NY steak and my boyfriend ordered the File. They were... More

This is my favorite restaurant. The view is great and the food is delicious. The best part is the happy couple who greet guests like family. The atmosphere is so comfortable you feel like your entertaining at home except Ron does the cooking. I live on the island and when I have company I head for island view.

Ron and Beth run the best restaurant on the island. although you need to call ahead and get reservations, it is well worth the effort. I suggest the later sitting. Ron makes the best steak on the island and Beth makes you fell like you just came home. The staff is awesome, attentive, caring and professional. The views will take... More
