“Tasty and Casual Seafood Dining on a Covered Waterfront Deck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

If you're looking for a relaxed place to have a reasonably priced seafood dinner in an outdoor, waterfront setting, consider Fish Tails in St. Thomas. The seafood selections are impressive, the atmosphere is casual and low-key, and the service is good. The Caribbean grilled and stuffed lobster was great, and the setting (a covered deck adjacent to the marina at Red Hook) will put you in the carefree island spirit. Sometimes this restaurant features live entertainment as well. Parking is tight in Red Hook, so prepare to pay about $4 to park at the ferry terminal next door. It is well worth it though for such a stress-busting experience. Meal prices are reasonable, but like most restaurants, the bar drinks will inflate your bill. With a tantalizing selection of cocktails and frozen specialty drinks, that temptation can be hard to resist. if you are on vacation, you owe it to yourself to partake in an island concoction or two. Yes, there are better restaurants on island where you can have a fine dining experience; however, few establishments on the east end rival the fun and laid-back atmosphere of Fish Tails.

“great service good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Our server Chuck was great. Best we had while on the island. My dinner was very good - stuffed shrimp. My husband's swordfish was tough, but when he complained was promptly brought a fillet of Mahi mahi that was perfect.

“Great food every time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We are always looking forward to coming to this restaurant, they always have the best service and food. We enjoyed the million dollar roll, peel and eat shrimp, the steamed mussels were so fresh. Then for our entrees we loved the local grilled lobster, and the tuna. We liked that they had added the sushi to their menu, it makes sense, they have the best seafood right there. We love it every time, looking forward to another great meal before we leave.t

Enjoy the catch of the day, usually from the boats in the marina. Great sea breeze and amazing drinks, our server Chuck aka Shucky was amazing.

“Best meal on St. Thomas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

My family of five dined at Fish Tails on November 10th. The great reviews led us there - and we were glad we went. Service was prompt and very helpful. Food was excellent. I enjoyed the scallops with crab meat ($26). Savored every bite. My mother in-law had the grilled Caribbean Lobster ($45 - 1.5 pounds) and said it was the best lobster she ever had. For dessert, we shared a fried banana cheesecake with ice cream. Try it - you won't be disappointed. My only regret is that we didn't have more time to return. Fish Tails is a must-visit for those who love seafood.
