We went there based on the recommendation of a local person, as Dick Solberg and the Sun Mountain Band was playing that weekend. The music was very good Dick was making jokes throughout the evening. The food especially the evening specials were excellent. It was a fun evening. We did have a hard time getting there using Google Maps because... More

We had quite an adventure finding this little gem! Great food in a casual low key setting. On the night we visited they had live music and we met the owner who was extremely pleasant and gracious. Will visit again on our next trip!!

Once past the unique entry - which is half the intrigue, this simple beach bar offers wonderful surprises. The Fiddler in season should not be missed, the Ahi Tuna is amazing, and the surroundings are awesome.

This is a terrific find in St Thomas for acoustic and bluegrass music, good Tori's, fun atmosphere- a joint in the middle of nowhere outside Red Hook near the Ritz & Elysian. Take bug spray and enjoy relaxed and friendly atmosphere & music

Latitude 18 is away from the hustle and bustle. You may think you are lost at first. Primarily a bar, but they have a limited albeit good menu. Daughter and I had different local dishes as well as the shark bite appetizer. Everything tastes great. Service was far and friendly. Out door seating as well as a covered bar. Worth... More

It was hard to find but worth the trip...in the daytime. Our bartender was so friendly and helpful. She is one of our favorites on island! However, don't go on a week night. Twice we revisited this gem in the rough, and both times saw ineptitude at its height. OUr bartender one night and server another was lazy, mean (saw... More

Not easy to find this open air bar near Redhook but worth the trouble. We did not have lunch but enjoyed the ambience over some beers. A highlight was feeding the tarpon swimming a few feet away. A bandstand confirmed that there is an active night scene at Lattitude 18.

If it weren't for the recommendation from a local, we would have given up getting here. Turns out, signs for bars/eating establishments in St. Thomas get stolen?! I'd have to call this open air, waterfront dining, refreshingly unique. The lunch menu was limited, but one of a kind & very tasty. We had "A Specialty from Trinidad. Homemade fried bread... More

Latitude 18 is one of the last remaining true island, open air restaurant in St. Thomas. Come experience the rustic charm of this 25 year old landmark! The road is bumpy but would you rather go to a bad bar at the end of a good road or a GREAT bar at the end of a bad road? Latitude 18 sits on the edge of the azure ocean. We serve Caribbean and American cuisine! And the FAMOUS "Shark & Bake" Sandwich which was featured on the Food Network and is available ONLY at Latitude 18. Renowned for LIVE ENTERTAINMENT there's live music and dancing EVERY NIGHT OF THE WEEK! Latitude 18, THE LIVE MUSIC CAPITAL OF ST. THOMAS Latitude 18.....Great Food.....Live Music!!
