Very disappointing. Blackened Mahi Mahi served rather cold on a bed of lukewarm rice. I like my food piping hot, fresh from the kitchen. All of our plates were barely warm. We paid a high premium for the lovely waterfront location, not for good food. I would not return nor recommend this establishment.

I really like this place. Good service, great food, right on the water. I always come here at least once for dinner while in STJ. Highly recommended.

Enjoy a table right near the beach where you can watch the ferries come in to dock at Cruz Bay. Good variety on lunch menu and many drink options (nonalcoholic) available.

Great view of the ferries coming in and boats docked. A sandy beach is in front of the restaurant. Casino is close by and fun to go to after dinner. Meals are a bit pricey but food is good.

Not sure if they had a off-day or if the regular cook was off. The fish tacos were ok, but lacked the flavor from the year before. This is my first stop on the island for a frozen drink and some chow. The view is always great!

We went to High Tide daily during our stay for their happy hour. They make fantastic bushwackers and the burger is pretty good. Great/Friendly service at the bar.

Great view of the harbor and sunsets, good food and potent drinks! We had dinner there on a Thursday evening and they were very busy. It seemed our waiter had most of the restaurant, but still able to provide efficient service, and even took a few moments to fill us in on some local places to visit.

Love this place for casual drink and the conch fritters are hands down the best on the island and make sure you ask for the traditional painkiller.

Where to begin with this place? Lets see, first off, it doesn't look like the pic shown here. The chairs are the most uncomfortable I have ever sat on. They are the size of kids chairs and do not even reach the table. The service was horrible. I asked for no onions on my salad, I got them and no... More

High Tide is a solid lunch option in Cruz Bay. The restaurant sits directly on Cruz Bay, so you not only have the view to St. Thomas, but also the breeze coming off the water. Service is as expected for St. John: Friendly, but not in a hurry (but not too terribly long, either). The adults had two of the... More
