We found this restaurant while looking for another. We were thirsty, hot and tired of trying to find the other place, so stopped in by chance. Lucky for us. Great views, excellent service, drinks hit the spot! Everyone was happy with their food. I had the fish tacos and they were delicious! A tiny bit spicy, but a perfect amount!

We were seated quickly here with a table in the shade in the early evening, great views right on the beach. High Tide seems to be a very busy place, many visitors come directly from the ferry. Shante was are waitress and took great care of us. My husband and I had Bushwackers, daughter had Painkiller and other daughter had... More

This was the first place we went once we arrived in St. John as it's right next to the Ferry. It's on the water so you get a great view. We were told to seat ourselves, so we did. It took quite a while for someone to finally come over and get a drink order and give us menus, but... More

Sorry for the initial delay, Amanda. We're pretty relaxed over here, but we certainly wouldn't want you to wait too long. With that being said, it's great that things picked up once your server got to you. We hope the rest of your trip out here went just as well. All the best, High Tide More

Good food, good drinks, great sunset views. What more could one ask for. Beach Bar is an absolute stop during our stay, at least once if not twice or more.

High Tides is my favorite place for tropical drinks and a perfect view of the beach at Cruz Bay. My husband and I loved sitting at the tables on the edge of the beach. It was fun sipping on our drinks watching the boats coming in and out of the bay. My favorite drinks on the entire island were at... More

We sat down for breakfast and 2 waitresses were running around. We received menus from one and it took another 15 minutes to get water from another. We were passed by at least another 20 minutes. It took for us to flag someone down to get our order in. Once we did, that took another 20 minutes. We got our... More

This doesn't sound like our definition of relaxing, Adrienne, so we're sorry for how things played out. The fact there was a delay in being served doesn't sit well with us. Sure, we might get busy at times, but you should always expect attentive service from us. Rest assured that this is something we'll follow up with our team about.... More

Awesome place to relax by the beach. Service was fantastic and the food brought us back for more the next day! We were so relaxed and enjoyed a beautiful sunset while sipping the best painkillers on island. It's also a great place to buy t- shirts. We also appreciated our server who took time to take pictures of us!

I just don't get this attitude that some of these places have. You run into some places on STJ that are outstanding with kind, outgoing waitstaff and then you run into places like High Tide where they treat you like you should be privileged to even be sitting there and they are so put out by your patronage. That was... More

Description
Like the waves that crash on our beaches, our islands are full of people that come and go. Like the boats that leave our docks filled with guests that want to stay, our gates wave goodbye to friends who want to remain for one more drink, one more bite of the best the ocean has to offer, or one more minute of closing their eyes and smelling the salt in the sea and listening to the caress of the ocean against the sand.

We know your time here is precious, everyone comes here to escape, to go on adventures with people they love the most. Here, we make it our vocation to help you experience the best of what the Virgin Islands has to offer. Our chefs have mastered both local and international cuisine, bartenders have figured out the best way to put spirit in our spirits, and all of our staff is happy to see you.

Honestly, we think there's no better backdrop to relax with friends or family, close that business deal, or even make the life-long commitment to the person you love the most.

We'll see you when the tide comes in.
