We arrived for dinner at 6pm and the restaurant was just starting to get busy- by 7o'clock it was very crowded and... read more

We went on a night when the cruise ships were not in port. It was a great, casual, sunset dinner with a wonderful view of the harbor and yachts. Our server, Sweets, took good care of us.

Near cruise ship docks. Great food and wonderful surroundings. Fast service and friendly staff. Just a short seaside walk from the main downtown shopping area.

Right on the water. Great place to stop for a drink or two or to get something to eat. You can also check out the yachts coming and going as well as see fish swimming around from your seat.

We went for a casual dining experience, and that's exactly what we got. A great outdoor restaurant right on the water in the harbor. The salad with grilled chicken was great.

Great restaurant. Has a nice view of the water and boats. The waitress seemed kind of timid as she really didn't say much. The food was great as were the drinks.

Service was great. Stopped in after our day sail for dinner and drinks. Food was excellent and the "Monkey no Climb" drink was to die for!! Will definitely go here again next time we're in St Thomas.

Great location, on the water overlooking a marina with yachts. We went on a Sunday night and they had a live jazz band. The food was average but based on the location and the music, I would definitely recommend going here on a Sunday.

Nice area to watch the docked ships and people on the waterfront front. We enjoyed the fried calamari and buffalo wings as well as a couple drinks. Food and service was good. Good place to enjoy a nice afternoon away from the shopping frenzy.
