This is a hidden gem. Great restaurant with a spectacular ocean view and must have lobster. Try to get there to see the sunset. It was our only regret.

This is my last dinner at the end of my vacation. Sitting out in the open listening to the waves, eating fresh lobster. What more could you ask for

Mim's is a small restaurant hidden behind some condos. The food is great but ask questions on what comes with the meal as some recipes aren't inclusive of ingredients that are used stated side. Taxi drivers know how to get you there!

Dinner was trouble free and fabulous. Was a little unsure because of some of their reviews but after trying it, i believe some are unfounded.

King crab and shrimp and crab pasta were... More

Beautiful waterfront restaurant. Had one of the best lobster meals in my life! I ordered the coconut curry lobster tail which was unbelievable. It was expensive, but well worth it. The small lobster which is what I ordered was $59, but it was a good size serving. Actually I'd consider it a typical size serving at most restaurants. The service... More

Relaxing location by the water, and the freshest, most delicious Caribbean lobster. Delicious, and great service by Jerry!

We went to Mim's on a recommendation from a waitress at our hotel. Its located on a nice quiet beach, and the food was good. There are only a few tables right at beach side, and since they were occupied we sat near the back by the grass. Unfortunately there are apartments only about 30 feet from our table. One... More

Location on the beach, nice breeze, great view, easy parking and short walk to the restaurant, fantastic service from Priscilla, lobster fresh and delicious, beverages also yummy, other dishes (blackened mahi) were fine but not special so be prepared to eat and pay for lobster, $60 for a small lobster and worth the price!

Thank Joanne H

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.
