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.
Caribbean Fish Market
Great food, service, and ambiance come together at this upscale seafood establishment located in the gorgeous seaside Elysian Resort. Take in views of Cowpet Bay while supping on their delightful dishes. As their name suggests, the Caribbean Fish Market is famous for its seafood, but relax, carnivores, they serve up tender filet mignon and succulent chicken breast as well. There are even options for the vegetarians out there!
Lobster, crab cakes, ceviche and more are the highlights at Havana Blue. Latin flavor meets Asian inspiration to create a one of a kind culinary experience. With a romantic ambiance that is perfect for date night, anniversaries, and other special occasions, Havana Blue should definitely make your list if you’re celebrating while on St. Thomas. Even if you’re simply visiting the island, Havana Blue is worth a visit – especially for all you foodies who love seriously delicious cuisine.
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.
The Sunset Grille is another great fine dining island-style type seafood restaurant which features delectable food, a truly excellent, well thought out wine list, and of course, many refreshing cocktails to pair with your meal.
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!
