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.

“First Stop off the Ferry”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We needed to waste some time before we could check in so wevdecided to have a drink here since you couldn't beat the location & view.

The drinks were good but the vodka drink which came with a souvenir glass was a hit with my husband. We ended up going back 2,more times so he could get two more as gifts for his bro & bud.

The Westin gave us a card that gave us a free discount with dinner so we thought why not.
That was one of the best dinners we had. We both ordered the Fresh Ahi. Very generous portions and everything on the plate was delicious. Only complaint was even though they knew in advance about the discount they rang it up wrong and we had to bring it to their attention and wait for them to redo.

It's an informal place but obviously a favorite hangout also by locals.

The only other complaint was the bartender at the bar when we came for our 3rd & last visit didn't say anything about getting the souvenir glass and unlike the other two visits where they gave us a clean one nicely wrapped with paper to protect it, he didn't say a word and we just stashed the dirty one.

I still recommend it despite the service being hit and miss.

“Good drinks”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Stopped in to this beachside establishment for drinks while waiting for our ferry and enjoyed some good drinks here. Bar tender was very friendly and accommodating and actually custom made bf's frozen drinks after he went and got some of the ingrediants. Superb service=happy customers! We did not eat here but the food going by looked good, next time we will definitely eat here too.

“Delicious Drinks and THE BEST CONCH FRITTERS ON ST JOHN!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

I have to say, I had conch fritters at four different restaurants while on St. John, and High Tide BY FAR had the best. They were out of this world good. The drinks (get a rum punch, or better yet a few of them) were outstanding. The servers and bar tenders are great, and the atmosphere is fun and very relaxing. Can't wait to go back! The Mahi sandwich is great too, as well as the burgers! You'll also be eating right out on the waterfront!
