Here's my two cents. We visited this restaurant for the first time with my parents. Reason being we could not afford going here without them. So a table of 4 is over 400 dollars for our meals. Two of us did get lobster which was delicious! My mom does not eat meat and got chicken parm which is also delicious.... More

Our trips to St Thomas would not be complete without a visit to Mim's for dinner. a lovely surfside location, with lobster as their specialty - especially the Coconut Curry preparation, which is my husband's favorite. At the waitress' suggestion, I tried the Shrimp/Crab Pasta this visit, and it was absolutely delicious. The Seafood Bisque is the best you'll ever... More

The first few days on St Thomas folks were telling us we needed to go to Mim's on Thursday night for the AYCE peel and eat shrimp. So I made reservations to get a good table with a view. We ended up with a table as far from the waterfront as you could get .... not a good start. About... More

Our family went to Mim's looking for lobster meals. The staff could not tell us an exact price of our lobsters and when we got the bill boy did we get sticker shock! Will not be coming back even though we have gone there every year for the past 8 visits. Stick to a restaurant that has a fixed price... More

We went here on advice of our hotel. I thought the food was excellent, but be prepared to pull out the cash as it wasn't cheap. Caribbean style food prepared fresh using locally caught seafood. The view was beautiful as you are right on the beach. Our server was top-notch - very friendly and even gave us a few freebies... More

Choose local dishes for your main course and sides. Open air dining, so no A/C, but on a nice evening it is very enjoyable. The ladies in my party complained of mosquitoes, but didn't seem to bother me - nearing the end of the rainy season, so one can expect mosquitoes. The server, Jerry was Mims son, and probably needs... More

We are very happy we finally had an opportunity to have dinner at Mim's. Let me start by saying our waitress was so sweet and gave us great service. Even offered to take some outside photos of us. The meal was excellent. I think we all went with seafood and no complaints. Definitely give it a try!

Wonderful stuffed lobster and the flat iron steak was also quite good. We sat outside and the view on this moonlit night was perfect. June was our waitress and she was excellent! Extremely accommodating to our group of 6.

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.
