I have been to Latitude 18 many times in the last two years and the reason being is that it's a location that not too many tourist attend, which is nice. It's super cozy, has a great view being next to a marina, plus the Tarpon swim right up to get a snack and those suckers are huge! The food... More

A good place for live music and good food. As a bar -- it is the perfect island, harbor atmosphere that is tucked out of the way of Red Hook action. I enjoy gazing at the tarpons that frequent the water next to the bar.

Do not come here for eating! But do not miss coming here. It is a legendary place to hear local music and have some drinks.

If you don't like to venture outside of the comfort of an all inclusive resort or if you think chain restaurants have good food then latitude 18 is not the place for you. However if you like to experience life from a local perspective then you'll love this bar. The staff was very funny and hospitable as well as the... More

Visit this gem on the east end of St. Thomas! Don't let the rocky road keep you from discovering the great atmosphere and food. Live music most nights with daily dinner specials

Hard to find but if you find it, you won't regret it. We went early (late lunch/early dinner). No complaints at all. Had seared tuna on Greek salad and vegan burger, fresh food, tasted great.

Our family really enjoyed sitting right by the water in a pleasant, outdoor environment. We watched the sun go down behind one of the hills on the island and listened to live music. Beautiful! Our waitress was very nice and provided good service. I highly recommend wearing bug spray, however, because the biting insects drove us back to our car... More

Our group of 6 there on June 19th and found that they had a wedding party of some 20 people. They told us they were busy and would get to us asap. ASAP took 20 minutes to PLACE a drink order and another 20 to GET part of them, another 10 for the rest. We left and probably won't be... 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!!
