Been going here for years. The service whether at the bar or table is fantastic. The food is fresh and excellent. Excellent views it is right at the dock in Frenchtown. Lots of local color. Just love HL&S.

This was a lucky find right by the harbor. Didn't break the bank and the fish was real fresh. In fact, the fish market was a 100 yards away and the waiter told us that the owner knows one of the ship captains who gives the restaurant first dibs on the catch. May have been a fish story, but I... More

We ate dinner here on our last night on the island. Our waitress was very helpful and attentive. The restaurant is not air conditioned, so be sure to get table by the windows.

I was told AT THAT TIME that refills are extra! WHAT !!! This wasn't mentioned at the beginning of the meal ..his... More

rluscz, Owner at Hook, Line & Sinker, responded to this review

I am so sorry about your unpleasant experience at Hook, Line & Sinker. Although it is not our policy to give free refills on sodas (nor is that the policy in most, if not all, St. Thomas restaurants), we do have a policy to inform customers of that when they order more than one refill. Unfortunately, I don't believe your... More

Had a great lunch on our last day before leaving the island. Had we known about it earlier we would have visited several times. We met the owner. He was great with interesting stories. Food was fantastic. Looked like the kind of place locals would eat.

No, it's not a pirate themed restaurant. I just felt like throwing that title up there. It is a casual place at the pier that serves excellent dishes at pretty reasonable prices. Marlon was our server (maybe it was Marlin, going with the seafood theme 😆), he was friendly and efficient and happy to share his thoughts on the menu... More

Found this through tripadvisor and stopped by for lunch on the way to airport. It was hard to find parking - true for the whole island. Loved the look and location on the dock. Servers were super nice and helpful. Husband and Son shared the mahi and said it may have been the best they had in a while. Key... More

The place is located in Frenchtown so it is a little off the tourist route. Actually the location is great. Open air with great views. This is more of a locals restaurant. The beverages were cold and the seafood was wonderful. It was recommended to me by a local and I am so glad we decided to eat there. I... More

Everyone really enjoyed their salads and fish. The atmosphere was casual and friendly. The chef was very accommodating with our gluten free needs. Highly recommend.

Hook, Line & Sinker is a must if you are on the island. A local recommend this restaurant to us, and he was right about it being the best. I ordered the blackened snapper and oh my it was perfect. My wife had a pasta dish that was also wonderful. The drinks were made just right and had the right... More
