Perhaps our expectations were a bit high. It was hard to find the place - signage only on one side & it was small to boot. Not enough ample parking so we had to park illegally. We were hoping for the sea side seating that was bragged about but I stead were seated in the back (even though there was... More

This is our second visit to Mim's. We stopped in last minute without a reservation and casually dressed. The previous visit during high season we were dressed more for dinner and made a reservation. We were pleasantly surprised this visit that we were seated in the same table directly overlooking the water. Service was quick and our waitress was very... More

The place is charming, right next to the water with beautiful colors and friendly staff. Even though the food took a while to reach us it was very fresh and attention was paid to the detail.

The lobster curry was the best. Recommended highly by the locals. The restaurant is right on the beach. It's a real island spot. It's a must try!!

The atmosphere was great and the food was ok. We didn't get to enjoy the view because it was night time when we got there... But overall we had a good time

I had mahi and it was nothing to write home about. There is a nice view but it's nothing fancy at all. You'll feel at home in shorts and a tee shirt. The calamari was very chewy and the service was ok. We had friends say they loved it, but we prefer Fish Tails for fresh fish.

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.
