The excellent view is what it sells...The food is ok average not what expected. We had the Lobster not the cury lobster. The price is a rip off. Small size lobsters were going for $49-69 according to the menu, and I asked for one on the smaller side of small, expecting to be in the $49-59 range. When I got... More

Lobster curry was good, but you'll smell like curry for a few days after! And dont go here right at sundown, bugs will eat you alive!

We love Mim's! Food was top-notch and the service was excellent too. We enjoyed getting to meet Mim herself! The restaurant is right at the water's edge and has a great view. Be prepared to pay for that great view, good service and good food :-) We will definitely be back!!!

A phenomenal dinner with a great view at Bolongo. Even got to meet Mim and she made you feel like family. The caesars salad is great as well and is enough for two to share. I'm still suffering from withdrawal from the best lobster dish on the planet.

Mim's is a quaint little restaurant with a lovely view, as long as you don't mind a hotel being right there. The food was good, but seemed overpriced for what it was. We got the famous lobster and it was good, but a little sweet for my taste. The server was hardly ever seen, and we waited a long time... More

The ambience at MIM's simply cannot be beat - anywhere! The food (I had the Steak au Poivre, my husband had the Wahoo) was superb and the server (Priscilla) was wonderful, as always!

My wife and I visited Mim's while in St Thomas looking for a good meal after having been recommended to go here by several locals working at our hotel. The food was incredible. Probably the best food we had in St Thomas. We had the crab legs and baked and stuffed lobster. Both were incredible. Management, however, cares not about... More

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.
