Went with a party of 8, got seated immediately then when the rain came in were moved inside. They did a nice job with our slightly rowdy group. The food was a little slow but worth the wait enjoyed the pre-dinner drinks!

We went on a Thursday and it was all you can eat shrimp (of the Peel and Eat variety). Plates are approximately $30 per person so get ready to shell out some dough but the food and service is absolutely marvelous.

We ate here a couple nights as we were staying in the condos next door - great service and food. The coconut curry lobster had the perfect level of spice to accent the lobster. Great view.

Food was amazing but service was STELLAR! Nicky was superb, kind and hospitable. She anticipated our needs during dinner which just made for a pleasant meal experience. The view was spectacular and the food price was reasonable. Highly recommend for local flare!

Mim’s Seaside Bistro is a beautiful oceanfront restaurant in St. Thomas that specializes in fresh seafood dishes. With house specialties including coconut curry lobster, baked stuffed lobster and conch fritters, Mim’s is a little slice of heaven for seafood lovers. We offer everything from king crab legs and fresh fish to chicken wings and creative pasta dishes. Our two large patios are the perfect setting for a relaxing dinner by the ocean, and our location right on the beach at Bolongo Bay gives us access to the best sunset view around.To get your appetite going, choose from our lobster and crab dip, coconut shrimp or calamari appetizers. For the main event, pick from one of our countless seafood dishes like the Grilled Mahi Mahi, King Crab Legs or Breaded Sea Scallops. For those who don’t particularly enjoy fish, we have plenty of non-seafood options to choose from. Try our stuffed artichoke hearts, fried brie, chicken alfredo pasta or one of our juicy steaks. Enjoy the island breeze while sipping a beer or one of our unique cocktails, from the always-popular Caribbean Margarita to the more daring Sex on the Beach in Winter or Beach Bar Bomber. Make sure to save room for our Key Lime Pie or Butterscotch Walnut Bread Pudding.
