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

My family ate here on October 3, 2016. We had an amazing experience! Our server/bartender Tracy highly recommended ALL food items and made the yummiest cocktails. Everything was delicious!! We tried the shark bites, vegetarian roti and baked fish sandwich. My 7 year old daughter couldn't have been happier with the mac & cheese! Tracy was very attentive and friendly.... More

You can literally take a 5 minute walk down the beach road parallel to the shore to this hidden dive. Open air restaurant/bar with live music. Had lunch there with a selection of a burger, local roti wrap or fish sandwich. Wonderful shrimp appetizer and delicious hamburger. Great portions and prices are very reasonable, esp. when staying @ The Ritz.... More

After sailing around St. Thomas and St. John for the day - we asked Capt. Justin (of Survivan) where a cool place to have drinks and dinner at would be. Since we were dropped off at Red Hook - he said you should try a place locals hang out at - Latitude 18. We love dive bars - and this... More

We went there with family and were quite surprised. Although very casual, entertainment was great and the food even better. My husband had the shrimp creole and I had the tuna. Absolutely delicious. Service was very good.

I've eaten here hundreds of times!! This spot has the best fresh tuna to add to your salad on the island!! It's grilled to perfection and many large slices will be added.. They have great drinks and a great staff !!!

Found this place on TripAdvisor, and wanted to come for the shark bites! Well, my son did. It's off the beaten path, was glad I rented a Jeep lol. It's an experience. Not a very clean place, but was fun nonetheless. We had Shark bites, the shrimp Bake, another shrimp dish and the vegetarian Roti. We enjoyed the atmosphere, in... More

We stumbled on this gem! Far from the maddening crowd and a great place to get a local feel! We went for lunch and our bartender/server was so knowledgeable about other places to visit! Get the bake sandwhich or the shark bites! You won't be disappointed! We missed the live music but we got to feed the amazing fish that... 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!!
