The service is excellent. Enjoyed every bite of my shrimp scampi and linguini noodles. They servings are pretty large so my daughter and I shared a dinner. Thanks Mim's for an excellent meal and enjoyable evening.

The Wahoo was amazing. The Mahi was a little dry but the flavors were good. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Mim's was an unexpected delight. From the time we arrived until the end, it was an enjoyable comedic dining experience fro my family of four. I reluctantly ordered the lobster with coconut curry. However to my surprise it was the ABSOLUTE BEST LOBSTER I've had in all my years. I ate myself sick!!! The mash potatoes delish, the vegetables, seasoned... More

We read the good reviews and decided to have dinner at Mim's. Since we heard it was popular, we made reservations. Upon arrival at the restaurant, there was no table ready for us. We had to wait for almost 10 minutes as they set the table. Waiters are too slow, our drinks took way too long to be served. One... More

Just returned from our 6 day stay in St. Thomas for family vacation and one of the highlights was eating at Mim's Restaurant and enjoying the views of the water/beach. Our server was SO FRIENDLY and helpful. I would highly recommend this place for excellent sea food and nice views!

We stayed at the Watergate Villas, and halfway through the week, decided to stop at Mims for a drink and a bite to eat. We got a table overlooking the water - service and food were top notch (although not inexpensive). Romantic setting - you will not be disappointed. (Also, they graciously gave me sugar when I needed some for... More

My husband and I were making our rounds visiting restaurants we hadn't tried before we moved back to the states. This was on our list. We had heard about it from some of our friends on the island. We went during the sunset, and after finding it we were pleasantly pleased with the location by the water. The service was... More

Best food in Saint Thomas. We stayed on the other side of the island but the 15 minute drive was worth every bite of food. Service was great and the view was amazing. Eating dinner over looking the ocean with the man I love. Couldn't have asked for anything better

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.
