Description: Mim’s Seaside Bistro is a beautiful oceanfront restaurant in St. Thomas that specializes in fresh seafood dishes. With house specialties including coconut curry lobster, baked stuffed lobster and conch fritters, Mim’s is a little slice of heaven for seafood lovers. We offer everything from king crab legs and fresh fish to chicken wings and creative pasta dishes. Our two large patios are the perfect setting for a relaxing dinner by the ocean, and our location right on the beach at Bolongo Bay gives us access to the best sunset view around.To get your appetite going, choose from our lobster and crab dip, coconut shrimp or calamari appetizers. For the main event, pick from one of our countless seafood dishes like the Grilled Mahi Mahi, King Crab Legs or Breaded Sea Scallops. For those who don’t particularly enjoy fish, we have plenty of non-seafood options to choose from. Try our stuffed artichoke hearts, fried brie, chicken alfredo pasta or one of our juicy steaks. Enjoy the island breeze while sipping a beer or one of our unique cocktails, from the always-popular Caribbean Margarita to the more daring Sex on the Beach in Winter or Beach Bar Bomber. Make sure to save room for our Key Lime Pie or Butterscotch Walnut Bread Pudding.

“Wonderful view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014 via mobile

Mim's has been around for many years, relying on their seafood menu for their reputation. It's well deserved. Had the all-you-can-eat shrimp, breaded scallops, and shrimp scampi over pasta tonight. All were tasty and well prepared. Service was very good. Worth the trip.

“Good food, great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

We ate here by accident since our first choice was closed for a private party. We were seated right on the water and it would probably be a gorgeous view at sunset. The sun had long set when were were there but it was still lovely. Our server was a little slow, but it's island time, right? Our food was good, but nothing exceptional. The entire restaurant was outside and very casual.

“Not good at all.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Reading these other reviews I'm wondering if we went to the right place. We were welcomed by very nice host and hostess and sat at a table with a beautiful view. The server was very pleasant and efficient. Then came the menu, fried sea scallops, fried this and that. The food was just awful, there were four of us and not one of us enjoyed our meal, but we did enjoy the view.

“Ambiance was perfect for Valentine's Day!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Our concierge at Marriott Frenchman's Reef suggested Mim's for a Valentine's day dinner. His recommendation was spot on! We had the Tuna Tartar w/chips for apps, then the Grilled Stuffed Lobster and some kind of spicy Scallop, Lobster, Shrimp over linguine. It was all great. Our table was literally on top of the rocks overlooking the moonlit ocean. Just spectacular! It was just about a 12 min taxi ride from Marriott. Highly recommend Mim's!
