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!

Had Blackened Red Snapper which Patrick, the bartender, told us was fresh. It was prepared perfectly and nearly melted in my mouth. We sat at the barvand had fun talking with locals...saw our waitress from breakfast there. Betsy came over and introduced herself. Food and attention to detail was spot on!!

We told folks we were looking for a local eatery that felt local. Betrays was it and it was great. The food and drinks were great. The atmosphere was active but not too much. We will return again.

Betsy knows bar food with a seafood focus...everything we had was fantastic with the exception of two steaks that were overlooked (but still tender). Although the setting is a fairly rough-looking bar, the food was much closer to gastro-pub quality and the seafood was very fresh. Much better service than most of the places I have eaten on the island.

After recommending this place to my relatives, they were not at all please with the thick tomato sauce chilli and the sagging tomatoes in the toss salad. When the waiter finally got back to our table, my relative decided she was not paying for food she did not enjoy or hardly ate. The waiter calls the manager. When the manager... More

small friendly bar in Frenchtown St Thomas. Simple food with friendly staff. Highlight was the conch fritters and the local beer. Actually the best part was our waitress, I believe it was Mary, recommended dinner at Thirteen. She said it was the best restaurant on the island and she was right.

Well, maybe I exaggerated a little bit. But for our first night on St. Thomas, USVI, it seemed like we were dining at the Ritz Carlton in New York. The night was a torrential rainy night. Our plane came in kind of rough. The airport didn't send a ramp to our plane for about 30 minutes. We arrived at 10:30p... More

After flying in storms all day and arriving on St. Thomas late at night, there were no places that were open to get a meal. Finally someone directed us to Betsy's, which is located in French Town. We were greeted in a friendly manner when we walked in and immediately felt at home. It's a friendly, hometown, late night bar... More

Great environment! Friendly staff and Betsy herself is a darling!! It's a great place to go for a late night appetite for eggs or burgers and drinks. It's a nice little bar to let your hair down after a long day. A few of my friends and I go there every Friday after a long week of school. We live... More
