Like the waves that crash on our beaches, our islands are full of people that come and go. Like the boats that leave our docks filled with guests that want to stay, our gates wave goodbye to friends who want to remain for one more drink, one more bite of the best the ocean has to offer, or one more minute of closing their eyes and smelling the salt in the sea and listening to the caress of the ocean against the sand. We know your time here is precious, everyone comes here to escape, to go on adventures with people they love the most. Here, we make it our vocation to help you experience the best of what the Virgin Islands has to offer. Our chefs have mastered both local and international cuisine, bartenders have figured out the best way to put spirit in our spirits, and all of our staff is happy to see you. Honestly, we think there's no better backdrop to relax with friends or family, close that business deal, or even make the life-long commitment to the person you love the most. We'll see you when the tide comes in.

This was more like it.

As I have said in other reviews, the prices on St John and/or the value are not great. However, we tried High Tide at the suggestion of my 24 year old son and found a new favorite.

We walked right in on a very busy night and dines at the bar. The grilled lobster was delicious. The sides were also nice. Hardworking guys at the bar too!

Wound up here for breakfast on a Sunday morning, limited selection of food but it was ok. Nice little local spot right on the water, did not have any great expectations and we were happy with the food. Service was not the greatest, a little slow but I guess we are on island time.

In a rolling blackout, this little on the beach restaurant had a generator and welcomed us and our drinks from another bar. We had a great dinner of conch chowder $12 and Conch fritters $12. Other members of our group had burgers and salads and chicken. Everyone thought the food was really good. The atmosphere is nice. I would eat... More

We sat at the bar and had $4 Rum Punch Drinks that were strong and tasty. Liked: Strong, tasty drinks, Happy Hour prices, Great View & Location, Good Service. It's just to the right of the ferry dock. Happy is 4-7pm. We had the chicken wings and coconut shrimp, both were good.

We saw the "Liked" portion, and were looking for the "Disliked" half, but were thrilled to see there was none! That's awesome, Kellie, and we're really glad you had a great time with us. We hope you drop in next time you're on the Islands! All the best, High Tide More

The High Tide was very convenient (being VERY close to the ferry dock in Cruz Bay), and being right on the marina, a very nice locale. Unfortunately, the service was very slow (we considered leaving since it took so long for the wait staff to find our table after seating us). The food was "OK", but certainly nothing to write...

We ate here a couple of times during our week on St. John. The service was pleasant. The food was good (especially the mashed potatoes). Good happy hour prices on beer and wine. Relaxing view looking out at Cruz Bay beach.

Shout out to the mashed potatoes -- that's awesome, Tina! We usually get praise on the seafood, so it's great for a side to get some serious love. Really though, thanks for writing this review. We really appreciate it, and we hope to see you back in next time you make it out here! All the best, High Tide More

We enjoyed the food here so much the first visit we went back for a second time a few days later. The food is great, would have given 5 stars except they were pretty slow, I know it is island time but it felt like the food took forever to come out...and make sure to use the restroom before you...

Came here for dinner. The mixed drinks were really off. Rum punch only tasted like pineapple juice. Immediately switched to beer and wine. Ordered the tuna, which was perfect however when served rare little credit is due to the chef. The sides (rice and vegetables) were completely unseasoned and soggy.
