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.

You may have a hard time finding this place, but it is worth it. Only open for dinner Fri-Sun, I think. Small place in a bed/breakfast with 12 rooms. Not many tables and your drinks are done by honor bar. Once you order, the "chef" goes to the kitchen, seasons your food and walks it over to the Weber grill.... More

I've heard about the steak here for months and finally went to Friday night dinner at Island View. What a cozy, cute, delicious place! The Guest House has gone green and the care that the owners give to the property and customers is top notch. The food is to die for and the view is magnificent. The honor system bar... More

Very nice little restaurant at the top of the hill overlooking the harbor. We all partook of the honor bar and had a delicious meal of steak and shrimp and salad bar at the Island View Guesthouse Restaurant. Would highly recommend it

We visited Island View Guest House for the first time recently. Others said it was hard to find, but that is not the case. Just go north on 33 from Nisky Center (corner of 30 and 33), and when the road makes that first hairpin turn up and left, you bear right instead. Island View is about 200 feet ahead... More

When I visit the islands I know their are going to be accommodations I will gladly make for the distance it is from the mainland. Take the grade of prime beef. I don't expect it to be common or for that matter reasonably priced. I stand pleasantly surprised. This little hide away tucked into the side of the mountain is... More

Have been coming to ST. Thomas for 30 years and had never heard of Island View. Friends found it and took us there and it was a lovely experience. The view is spectacular, the food excellent, and you make your own drinks. I would strogly recommend taking a taxi to go there but it is well worth it.
