One of the benefits of being an island is our close proximity to the sea – an endless bounty of delicious, fresh fish and shellfish. And being an island that is known for its fantastic food, you can bet that there are some superb seafood restaurants on St. Thomas. Here are some of our favorites.
Mim’s Seafood Bistro
Along the seaside is Mim’s Seafood Bistro where you can get stunning ocean views, beautifully seasoned fresh fish, and drinks so good you’ll be tempted to try everything off the menu, all in one place. A favorite is the coconut curry lobster and people rave about the Shrimp and Crab pasta and peel and eat shrimp. Wash it down with a handcrafted Bushwacker and you’re all set for an evening of optimal relaxation.
Located on a historic property that once belonged to the first Danish governor of St. Thomas back in the 17th century, Oceana has been the St. Thomas seafood maven’s go-to since 2002. Its interior décor is part rustic plantation, part fine dining. As for the food, well the food is outstanding. Yellowtail, scallops, and a stellar surf and turf option are among the many delicious choices you’ll discover at Ocean.
Hook, Line and Sinker
Slightly off the main road is Hook, Line and Sinker, a family owned and run seafood eatery that will have you coming back time and time again. Don’t let the casual atmosphere fool you. Hook, Line and Sinker is one of the best St. Thomas has to offer in terms of seafood. Friendly service is icing on the cake of the scrumptious food you’ll find here.
Fish Tails Bar and Grill
Casual yet with first rate food, Fish Tails Bar and Grill can be found on the docks of Red Hook. Generous portion sizes, super fresh catches, it’s local fare at its best. Blackened fish, blackened chicken, mussels and more! It’s conveniently located near the ferry terminal, making Fish Tails a great place to grab a bite (or a beverage) before or after a day trip to one of the other islands.
Dinghy’s Beach Bar and Grill
Can’t get enough of the beach? Then Dinghy’s is the place for you. This bar and grill is located on Honeymoon Beach. You can feel the sand beneath your feet while you enjoy some local favorites and sip on an icy cocktail. One thing that sets Dinghy’s apart is the fact they offer free beach amenities. Plus a tiki bar! A win-win combination for sure!
