This is an amazing place for lunch or dinner. The food is amazing and authentic Caribbean cuisine. The service is great- ask for Pauline ( she is such a sweet lady). If in St. Thomas this place is a must.

Yum yum, everything on the menu is to die for. We usually eat there whenever we are in St Thomas. Friendly, fast and homemade.

We recently went to Gladys for lunch during Christmas week. First time was so good, we returned on our last day for breakfast. Wonderful service. What really stood out was the beautiful singing voice of one of the waitresses. Delicious food and terrific entertainment to boot!

Our waitress was able to serve our table of 7 easily, while attending to our every need. The food was cooked to perfection, and if you're into fish try the old Wife. And no fear... you're waitress will even show you how to avoid the bones :) Cappuccino's made in house from espresso machine and the hot sauce was so... More

Absolutey the rudest and worst service I have had in years. The food was fine but our male server could not have cared less. The place is obviously packed with cruise ship tourists and so they don't need to rely on repeat business.

Little spot off Main Street with good food. Service is less than perfect, but the atmosphere makes up for it. Gladys makes awesome drinks with fresh fruit!
