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.

Very good dinner, but not the best in Cruz Bay

On a recent stay in Cruz Bay we had dinner at High Tide. While the service was very good and the beach-side location is very nice (and casual), the meal itself was average+. We shared the lobster, which seemed to be a Maine lobster (definitely not Caribbean lobster)(probably frozen) and the... read more

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.

After an awesome day at the beaches and a fun happy hour, I enjoyed the most wonderful grilled mac and cheese sliders with a unique pesto. I saw them and when my server informed me that they were sold out the chef saw and made an exception. I was soon blessed with those sliders i was craving. The sliders were... More

One day we had a wonderful lunch at the High Tide. My husband said his veggie burger was the best he had ever had and I loved my chicken sandwich and pasta salad. Later the same week we went back and had drinks and enjoyed them as well. It is located right on the harbor and they played relaxing and... More

Went in for a quick drink, paid with a credit card, about a week later, looked at my credit card statement and the charge was not what I signed for. Now have to chase down a credit or dispute a charge. Either sloppy work or fraud, either way, not what I expect from a reasonable business.

Enjoyed our first dinner on the island with High Tide. Diverse menu with fresh ingredients - something for everyone. Service is friendly and the bartenders work their tails off! Nice large bar with plenty of seating both around the bar and tables. Very clean.

This is a great location - located on a deck right on the beach. So, the kids were on the beach while we waited for our food. As a result, we have eaten there twice - once for breakfast and once for dinner. The food as mixed - some really good, some that really didn't get touched. This is close... More

Can't go wrong with High Tide - convenient to the ferry, great drinks (especially the Mango Tango), awesome view and open air atmosphere. Beach is right there. We stopped in twice, as we stayed in St Thomas, and took the ferry over two days - each time stopping in for a couple of drinks & a bite to pass some... More

I was looking for some breakfast before I headed on the ferry to St. Thomas. High Tide's deck is right on the beach on Cruz Bay. Although my server was a bit indifferent (I'm guessing a little bit of a hangover was at play), he was friendly and attentive enough. Breakfast was nicely portioned, and pretty good. It's hard to...
