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.

“Great Family Food - Views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We ate here twice while on vacation and had great meals both times. Service was fantastic. Lots of food options for our tweens. Plus, there were excellent daily specials for my wife and me. Tables were right out on the deck on Cruz Bay with great views of the sunset.

“Our favorite hang out spot again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

We love high tide - the atmosphere, friendly staff, and lovely scenery. My wide loves the Lime in da Coconut and i always enjoy a cold beer. Just a nice place to hang for happy hour or listen to a live band. We don't eat full meals but often get appetizers or a quick sandwich and am never disappointed. I wish i was there right now!!

“Great Food and service”

Nice place in Cruz Bay shopping area and very close to the Ferry. We only had lunch here, but it was really good with great service. Mahi Tacos were excellent.

“Excellent food, great view on the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

After a St John Historic Walking Tour, we stopped here for lunch. From what we could tell, the only seating was outdoors. There was foliage everywhere with umbrellas providing shade for all. The menu had a wide variety of salads, sandwiches and soups as well as a full bar. We had a well shaded table with a view of the beach and water, a nice breeze and excellent service. We were invited to stay as long as we wished after eating and we did so. The conche chowder and grilled mahi sandwich were fantastic. Our server, Jimbo, was very cordial and very funny. The glasses of wine were generous and reasonable. It was a perfect afternoon.

“Fried, fried, fried food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

All the food was pretty much fried. A nice view of Cruz Bay harbor though. Take a few more steps to some of the other locations just a few feet a way for better food.
