We had a great meal and wifi to check email and Facebook. South Carolina transplant Melissa was great! This place is right in the middle of town overlooking the bay. Get an open air taxi to this place and then strike out and visit the many shops of St. Thomas.

Tanji was a great bartender who was nice, energetic, and was always smiling! She gave us great advice for things to do on the island. It was definitely my favorite stop on the beautiful island

This little bar is right in the heart of the Royal Dane Market. The nachos are good, the drinks are not watered down, and the waitstaff are nice. Did not try any of the other food - but would certainly go back for the drinks and the nachos!

Bar staff here work really hard to provide fast and friendly service. Cocktails were excellent. While the food took longer than one would expect from a beach front bar when it arrived we understood why, the food was clearly freshly prepared and cooked to order.

When we stopped by this restaurant it was in between the holidays and many ships were in port. The place was crazy busy and was short staffed but Melissa was amazing!!!!! She hustled and moved and we met the wonderful owners Nancy & Mike. People have to understand when a restaurant is full it may take a little longer to... More

I usually don't spend time in St. Thomas, but this place is perfect if you are waiting for a ferry or flight. Good service and really strong wifi. The food is pretty good and they have fresh squeezed orange juice for a nice screwdriver.
