Went here for lunch one afternoon after diving. Ordered the blacked mahi and hubby ordered the fish tacos. My entree did not come out as I had ordered...oh well. The fish was definitely fresh but overall just okay in flavor. Husband enjoyed his fish tacos... Came with some sort of mango pineapple salsa which he liked. Overall, not bad but... More

My wife and I were in St. John all last week. Some of our favorite restaurants were closed during this off season so we tried others that we have less experience with and were open. High Tide is a casual place that has a great sunset view. It is very convenient to the ferry dock and "downtown" Cruz Bay. Our... More

I am still shocked at what I saw go down at this restaurant. By far the rudest waitress/bartender I have ever encountered...EVER. A bikini clad, obviously drunk girl came into the restaurant trying to use the bathroom, but reassured the waitress that she would buy a round of drinks. The waitress was beyond rude to this girl, ridiculed her for... More

High Tide apologizes for the undesirable incident. We pride ourselves not only on our customer service, but also ensuring our guests have a fun and relaxed experience. We are not only beach bar, but a family restaurant as well. We maintain a very casual and reasonable dress code and we expect our guests to comply when asked. It is unfortunate... More

Very pleasant casual dining outdoors adjacent to the water. Good sandwiches and salads, prices are reasonable.

This place is awesome! Great food and entertainment with local man playing the bongos.... it was great. Food is 15-20 a plate even for lunch, but it is worth it. TV's for sports watching too, but on the beach is much better for the view.

We had lunch here. The service was a little slow, but to defend our server, her counterpart sat on her butt the whole time and did nothing! Not sure why they keep that second waitress. Anyway, food was good, waitress was nice, and the location is really pretty, being right on the beach.

We visited High Tide twice during our one week stay. We had lunch and drinks our first day after arriving on the ferry from St. Thomas and then again for late afternoon drinks and appetizers. Food was good, drinks were great and the views were awesome!

Loved it all.. We celebrated my birthday there. It was downtown, so after dinner, you could check out the clubs. I would recommend it to anybody and everybody.

The best thing about this restaurant was the beachfront location. The waitress was pleasant but the service was super slow and the food was just ok. Considering that it was a bar, they should have at least had the beers listed on the menu. The one we picked was not cold so we had to pick again. We ordered a... More

We had great food at the High Tide. We loved being able to leisurely look at Cruz Bay while eating. There was a one-man band there the first night we went. Great, affordable cocktails (cheaper than NY.) And super food. My son and husband had the skirt steak both nights and claimed this it was their favorite meal of the... More
