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.

“Good happy hour, bar food”
Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

I agree with other posters that this is better food and value than a lot of the higher ranked restaurants. After eating huge meals and lots of steak at more upscale and expensive spots this week, we came here at the end of happy hour just to eat some bar food.
It was quick, cheap, and tasty. good value and service. Our waitress had many tables and still did a good job. Sodas come in cute plastic souvenir cups and $2 Banks beer was good enough for the price.
Lots of dependable choices like fries, chicken tenders, etc when you've had your fill of Mahi and Lobster everywhere else.
We will definitely return!
Mixed crowd, located right by the ferry dock with outdoor seating on the main beach area. Loud and hot but worth a stop!

“A very pleasant surprise- Really delicious skirt steak dinner”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

We just finished dinner here. I was in the mood for a burger and had a very good burger and fries. My husband ordered the skirt steak with mashed potatoes, asparagus, and a few small fried onion rings on top. It was plated very nicely and was delicious. Probably the best meal we have had on the island even though we have gone to much higher ranked restaurants. The service was great. This is a casual restaurant on the water near the ferry terminal that is really worth a try.

“Great place for lunch!”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Had lunch here on a day trip to St John after shopping in Cruz Bay and before heading to beach. Casual, fun, and great view of Cruz Bay. Service was friendly and quick. Had chicken salad sandwich on tortilla, which was toasted and very tasty, with delicious rum punch. Husband had the mahi mahi fish & chips & island beer and liked that too. Great, casual lunch spot on beach!

I love High Tide for their delicious food, relaxed atmosphere & friendly staff. This is a great spot to have dinner and watch live music. Try the chicken quesadilla & onion rings.
