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.

We had never been there and decided to try it around sunset. The waitress got our drink and appettizer order which came out promptly. However we had to go to the bar twice to ask for drink refills. The food was not good at all. Everything was over cooked. Because we had a party of 6, an 18% gratuity was... More

Drop luggage. Sit just 6 feet from the gentle lapping of the shoreline. Breathe. Order a refreshing drink and the yummiest of conch fritters. Watch the boats come in. Our first taste of St. John. Off the ferry and into the arms of The High Tide. Absolutely loved everything about it. Great food, great service, very friendly staff, stunning location.... More

Not sure what I was expected but after dropping off our rental car and waiting for the ferry, we decided to have a quick lunch on July 17th, 2015. Cant beat the location but usually locations like this come with food that s-t-i-n-k-s. But our expectations were hugely exceeded. The service was awesome and the shrimp tacos were so yummy,...

We stop here every year and grab lunch while waiting for the Ferry. Grabbed a fresh blackened Mahi sandwich and my wife had pulled pork that she really liked. Lunch is quick and easy, and you can take in a few last views of Cruz Bay before leaving.

Our group ate here for lunch, craving seafood and nice beach views. It wasn't very busy when we arrived and the service was a little slow to start.

The service here was slow and the food mediocre. What this place has going for it - it's proximity to the Ferry Dock. Don't waste your money - walk a bit further.
