This open-air, mountaintop restaurant is purely magical and exactly the type of thing you want to experience while on vacation. The views are really lovely, and the atmosphere is so romantic and cozy and familiar all at once. When we first walked up to the restaurant, we saw a man hovered over a grill cooking up the food. Immediately I... More

Aside from the magnificent views, the food is delicious, fresh and prepared by the owners. The menu is small but complete with a chicken dish, steak and several fresh seafood dishes. Only restaurant I've been to where they actually cook the steak the way you ordered it. The honor bar adds a unique and generous compliment to the dining experience.... More

I travel to St Thomas at least twice a year and Island View Guest House is a must for anyone visiting the island. $28 for a Delmonico Steak or $32 for the Filet, cant be beat! Ron the owner cooks all the food from Beef, seafood to the veggies on an open grill, just out of this world. Honor Bar... More

Went to the 6p seating and had the Filet...oh my God! It was the biggest filet I've ever had and the price point was incredible-even for the states. $28 for a hand sized filet, not fist sized, hand sized and 2 inches thick. Great view, honor bar was neat. Think of this 8 people, a little less than $300 with... More

I said it all in the title. Don't know what more to add other than you will not be disappointed if you visit. I will caution you to book ahead, sometimes it's hard to get a reservation, due to the demand.

I've eaten here a couple of times now. Each time has been great. It's different but in a great way. It's very small, (be sure to make reservations for 6pm or 8pm) and has an honor bar (I love being able to pour your own cocktails). It's restaurant dining at it's simplest as far as service is concerned and most... More

The view was priceless. My favorite on the island. Only open Thursdays Friday's and Saturdays with reservations at 6 or 8 pm. Try to go at 6 for the sunset. Salad bar is extra. 1 trip 7 bucks.

Great concept- excellent service-outstanding food. Honor bar for all beverages and the salad bar. Three general menu choices: fish - chicken - beef. Our night had 3 different fish offerings, a chicken dish, ribeye steak, and filet mignon. The view is unmatched. Reservations are a must... First time take the early seating so you get somewhat used to the road... More

This little gem was by far the best meal we have had during our four months on the island of st. Thomas. Great views, staff, great dinner and dessert, and love the Honor Bar. A must-do if you are visiting st. Thomas and looking for a perfect evening out. We can't wait to return next winter season. Thanks for the... More
