If you love Steak and Lobster, the Island View Guest House is the place to go on St. Thomas. The view from the restaurant is breathtaking, which makes the meal even more spectacular. The steak is cooked to perfection on a grill on the deck in front of your eyes, the fillets and rib eye cut steaks are to die... More

Ok, heard about this place from some locals and a friend Phillip from Trinidad. It was our last night on St Thomas after a whole month. We booked in advance as they are only open thurs, fri & sat. We got a bit lost on the way, but called and got directions. We took a 6pm seating as there were... More

We visited Island view guest house after hearing so many glowing reviews. We were not disappointed. The honor bar system is a great idea, I loved the concept. Steak was cooked and seasoned to perfection. We are already planning our next visit, we want to try the 6pm seating to see the sunset (there are 2 seatings - 6pm &... More

We had been to St Thomas several times but had never used TripAdvisor until recently. One of the recommended restaurants was this one. From the start it was one of our favorites and we have tried most on St Thomas. The view was out standing. I loved the honor system for the drinks. Our waitress was responsive and checked on... More

I did my research on TripAdvisor before we went to St. Thomas and boy am I glad I did! I found this review titled, "best kept secret..." and they were 100% right when talking about Island View Guesthouse! My husband and I visited this restaurant in August of 2014 and we couldn't have been happier with the choice. We were... More

We are part timers on the Island, renting our condo out 8-9 months a year. Locals told us about this restaurant indicating this "is" the place to go for Steak and ambiance. Best advice I have gotten on St Thomas. The Steaks and service, along with the view are excellent. This is a low key restaurant, with an honor bar... More

I call this my go-to, "secret", local restaurant and I regularly recommend this place to tourists. IVGH offers a small, quaint, atmosphere with only a few tables (make a reservation) and a great view of the harbor. It's owned by a sweet couple from Indiana, both very friendly and make you feel like you're at home. They have an honor... More

Island View Guest House is a wonderful secret on the island. A cute little bed and breakfast type place that is only open for dinner Thurs-Sat so you must plan accordingly. Definitely make reservations as they have limited seating. We went on a Thurs night and loved it so much we wanted to come back again on Sat night. The... More

My wife, sons and I just returned home from a week at St. Thomas and the highlight meal of the trip was our dinner at the Island View Guest House. We arrived very early for our reservation (I got the time mixed up) but were told we could wait in a reading room just off the main dining room and... More

This place only open Thursday through Saturday and serves the best barbeque steak on the island. Very casual place with self serve honor bar and simple salad bar. Great harbor views. Locals know it well. Owner/staff is very attentive. A regular spot for me. Small place call for reservations.
