If you want an experience in local culture Betsy's Bar is the place to go. The food here is consistent and always fresh. The fried scallops appetizer was on of the best I've had. The Snapper Francais was out of this world, fresh, tasty and cooked to perfection. The sautéed veggies were hot and... read more

One of the best priced places on the island you will find! However, overall the food was only good. That being said, they did have outstanding house soup and their french fries were perfection. The sandwich I had was a disappointment, although everyone did enjoy their meals. Like I said, good food, but not outstanding.

We found this pub on Trip Advisor, and true to the reviews, it's a colorful, friendly pub. Pool tables, dartboards and, if you sit at the bar, many local stories. This isn't an upscale martini bar, just a fun, local pub...our kind of place! Kudos to Erin, our bartender for her service!

One of the best things about Betsy's , is Betsy! She is at the bar running around making sure everyone is enjoying themselves! She really cares and it just makes you feel so welcome! The food is great! There is a lunch and dinner menu, and then a late night menu. My husband and I enjoy both, and argue over... More

We popped in on a weekend night for a late dinner and some drinks. Very much a mix of folks that represented a cross section of St. Thomas. We had brisk service, good pub good and some interesting people watching. The food was tasty and the price was right, we'll be back.

We were looking for a locals spot and went here upon the recommendation of our hotel. It is definitely a spot where the locals are happy to talk to you! 3 at our table had the red snapper and said it was very good. The other 3 had salad and conch chowder which we all agreed was good, but over... More

Betsy's Bar is very easy to find in the Frenchtown section of St Thomas. Turn off the main highway along the water front at the Post Office and keep bearing right. This old building has served as a local tavern for many years. The U shapped bar is usually filled with locals enjoying a cold beverage at the end of... More

Jerked Ribs and chicken were good! The breakfast is supposed to be better. Go for the beer, pool table and atmosphere.

We walked in and the bartender had the biggest smile, so I knew I was in the right place!! I was looking for a local bar, not a touristy rum punch place and I found it! Mary Ho is the BEST bartender EVER!! Great attitude! Great service! Exactly what I was searching for and felt at home instantly!
