Description: 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!!

First time dining & live music experience was great! Friendly crowd & dynamite curried chicken - what a nice surprise down that bumpy road. Service came with a smile. We'll go back.

“Outstanding food and great people”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

We just returned from St Thomas and had a number of great meals, both lunch (great wraps) and dinners, during our 10 day stay. The entertainment and the staff created a layed back-easy to love atmosphere. It is not fine dining but if you are looking for very good food at a fair price with "beautiful" views this is a must visit.

“One word...eh?”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Nothing to write home about with this place. My burger was pretty bad compared to others I had while in St. Thomas. We were there with a total of 6 people and nobody was very impressed with their food. We went there on Super Bowl Sunday before the game and were hoping to hear live music and they didn't have any, which a major disappointment. Many other better choices right in Red Hook, don't waste your time.

Just don't get this. We remember your party and when we asked no one complained. Why would you not complain to us in person and then got onto a public forum and complain? You guys even ordered dessert! Regarding our live music. We have live music every night of the week but our music starts at 7:30 and so did the Superbowl. It would have been silly to have live music at the same time as the Superbowl. Then maybe others would have complained about that. I guess we just cannot please everyone.

“Great food and great entertainment”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Everybodies food was perfectly done from Robbies Ribeye to the seared tuna and shark bitesThe New Latitude 18 is still perfectly quaint next to the waterside and we watched a great full moon rise over St John.The Fiddler always great entertainment and Jason and friend where nearly as good sunday night.The new owner partners expanded the kitchen and provided more chefs so that the food was hot and came out in perfect time for our group of 8.This is a must for any visitor and we will continue to eat here every year when we come for our annual St.Thomas vacation.

“Not happy with the food”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

I don't understand the raving reviews. Our food was VERY mediocre. Jerk hamburgs were missing the promised mango. At 6:30 pm the ribs were not ready. The shrimp creole was cold and although there were a good amount of shrimp, the rice was undercooked. The shrimp creole with linguine was pronounced good. The bathroom was filthy!! Drinks were ok, service ok.
