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.

Perfect location

Can't beat the view here. Right off the ferry dock. Great place to have a first drink on ST John. Overlook Cruz bay with a B and B

That is the motto of the HIGH TIDE. We go there for food and drinks after the beaches for a relaxed evening. I noticed they now serve breakfast too-- gotta try them on the way TO the beach next time!!

This place has a great view of the Caribbean Sea but the food is lacking. I had the Mahi and it was a little dried out. Maybe next time I will search the menu for something else but I would definitely go back.

Jimbo R, Owner at High Tide Bar & Seafood Grill, responded to this review

While it's gorgeous, we like to think it's more than the view that makes us special. Dried Mahi doesn't sound like us, so it's surprising that made it to your table in the first place. There are plenty more options on our menu, so we hope you'll give us another try when you're visiting next time. Sincerely, High Tide More

After a day shopping in Cruz Bay we wandered in to High Tide for a late lunch. Our server, Todd, was attentive and provided good service. The view is spectacular here and adds to the great atmosphere. The chicken sandwich, crab & shrimp roll and caesar salad with shrimp were very fresh and flavorful. This was a wonderful stop for...

For beach front drinking, you cant go wrong with High Tide. From the friendly staff to the free flowing drinks, the HT isn't to be missed.

Went there with May family for breakfast, I had the Breakfast Quesadilla delicious big portions too. Tatter Tots were the best I've ever had. If you like spicy sauces put a little Baron West Indian Hot Sauce!! Service was great and the view of Cruz Bay made it even better!

What better way to enjoy the view than with a tasty breakfast! It sounds like both the quesadilla and tater tots were spot on, and good suggestion on the hot sauce. Thanks for stopping by while on the island, Brian -- we hope the rest of your trip went well. All the best, High Tide More

This was the first place we hit when we got to St. John. It's right off the red hook ferry and right on the beach. The staff was very friendly and the food was great.

We apologize we couldn't make the wait worth it for you and your family, Jimmy. Your waiter should have explained the specials before you ordered, so we're surprised that wasn't the case for you. We might have dropped the ball during your visit, but we know we can truly deliver on more attentive service if you'll give us the chance.... More
