This was a very nice fine dining experience. Beautiful view. The food was DELISH! It is definitely pricey, but the service and food were really good. Our waitress was friendly and accommodating. Food was delivered in a timely fashion and cooked just how we wanted.

We ate dinner there in March, 2017, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The tables are located on a small terrace a few feet away from the beach. The view is great. The service was excellent. We ate lobsters, which were cooked exactly like we wanted them. The lobsters come in three sizes-small,medium and large, and the final bill is based on... More

You sit either outside or under roof. Both areas have seat right on the bay. We had 2 meals here. The mahi and red snapper were both great. They also have peel and eat shrimp.The wine list is not very good but they have a full bar.

Loved this restuarant - outdoor dining, overlooking the water. We had wonderful service provided by Joan and the food was amazing. Save room for dessert - peanut butter pie and key lime pie are must haves to end your meal.

You can eat excellent seafood in a relaxing environment looking at and hearing the waves lap the shoreline. The service and value is also excellent. This year we ate on Thursday night which is all you can eat you peel shrimp. In past years have eaten on other nights, including Wednesday when the bar Iggy's has entertainment. You can walk...

Thursdays are all you can eat shrimp but don't wait for that - everyday is a treat at Mim's whose signature drink will have you relaxed and ready to dine her creole delights with veggies and rice. Frog legs - Delish - did you know that they're called Mountain Chicken on her husband's island of Dominica? Open 7 days a... More

I love this restaurant. The location is really truly "Ocean Front". Sitting so close to the water & the arrangement of tables is very nice. Great selection of seafood. We enjoyed Thursday all you can eat shrimp. Very good tasting food. The service was excellent. The staff seemed very happy & like they had fun working together.

Nice romantic evening with the hubs at a small table by the waterfront. Not fancy or overly stuffy but good food and of course, amazing views. Don't let the location fool you-it is tucked behind some apartments/vacation rentals that feel like you are in the wrong place. But you are not!

Thank Snowpeach

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.
