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.

Good food and outstanding waterfront location

Excellent waterfront location in the center of Cruz Bay next to the ferry dock. Amazing views of the water and St. Thomas, and awesome island vibes with the sounds of music and the gentle waves! The food, for the most part, was great. The coconut shrimp and conch chowder were delectable, and the... read more

We visited High Tide on the first night of our family vacation on St. John and were pleased to find a good menu for children as well as delicious adult choices. We began with their signature cocktails ( very good) while the kids could enjoy non-alcoholic versions of pina coladas. We especially enjoyed the quesadillas and the caprese salads. High... More

Very good food and excellent service in a perfect location right on the water. They were very accommodating - we went late, just before close, and they took care of us without complaint. Great conch fritters!

High Tide is literally yards from where the ferry from St. Thomas drops you off in Cruz Bay. The location makes it very memorable for people watching, but the food was very very good and reasonably priced, and the service was good as well (unexpected for Island Time). The ambiance in very beachy (you are ten yards from it), but... More

We had been here before and knew what to expect, and it did not disappoint. We ordered the lobster roll, caprese salad, conch fritters, and two pain killers. The kids ate fries and rings. The lobster roll was ice cold and tasted just caught fresh. The fritters were perfectly cooked as well. What sets this spot apart is that they... More

Always have at least one meal and stop multiple times for drinks when visiting Cruz Bay. Food is always good, burgers, sandwiches and fish are great choices. Friendly service, awesome view right on the water.

We spent 5 nights in St John. We went to 5 different restaurants for dinner, this is the one we would not recommend. Service was poor, our waiter seemed more interested in the loud party of 4, that seemed to think they were the only people in the restaurant, spending more than we were...not to say we were dinners and...

We ate here because it was recommended as a good place to watch the sunset over dinner with good food. Not so much. Even sitting along the edge of the deck we had to peer through the branches of the trees planted right up against the railing. Calamari was good but nothing to write home about. The only vegetarian offering,... More

When you sit at our table, you should be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy a great view and meal. To hear that wasn't the case for you and your husband is disappointing. Like we said then, we apologize for the lost credit card. Our team looked around, but unfortunately we couldn't find it. Sincerely, High Tide More

Had lobster for my birthday here with my family. The kids played in the sand while we watched the sunset. Everything was delicious, and happy hour prices were great.
