We were taken here last night by some locals who had never been. We brought our own wine as we were told they did not serve wine, but they do! And for only a $10 corking fee, how can you go wrong. All 4 of us had the ribeye. Seriously, I have never seen a ribeye this large. I didn't... More

This place is absolutely a hidden jewel. The view is spectacular - the parking is a bit tight and the locals love this spot so DEFINITELY call ahead and get either the 630 pm or the 8 pm seating. Thurs Fri Sat and Sun - They have steak grilled to perfection on an outdoor grill that the owner is expert... More

Everything was amazing. From being greeted upon arrival by the staff (including your chef who's only a few feet away on the grill). Simple menu but amazing flavor. Hubs did the ribeye and I did the filet and added blackened shrimp. All perfectly done and nicely charred from the grill. Best steak on the island. Quaint and personable with great... More

This is almost awesome find. Came from a friendly recommendation. Menu is very simple. Steaks, fish and a veggie dish. Honor bar-pour your own drinks. Beautiful hillside view of Charlotte Amalie. The steaks were true perfection. It's like having a cookout at a friends house. Two sittings at 6 & 8 pm. But only around the weekend. I can't wait... More

A group of six of us were staying at the Marriott Frenchman's Reef when a stranger in the pool struck up a conversation about a little restaurant on the hill called Island View that has great food and a "serve yourself" bar. It sounded interesting so we called them for a reservation for the next evening. They only have two... More

We love Island View Guest House. The view is spectacular, the food is excellent, and the owners and staff treat you like family. When our family and friends come for a visit, they make sure to reserve one evening for dinner here!

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and a wonderful, full-moon view of the city and harbor. Atmosphere was relaxed, not rushed, and welcoming. The small staff made us feel at home and valued. The owner literally cooks the entrees on a grill outside the open-air dining area.

This open-air, mountaintop restaurant is purely magical and exactly the type of thing you want to experience while on vacation. The views are really lovely, and the atmosphere is so romantic and cozy and familiar all at once. When we first walked up to the restaurant, we saw a man hovered over a grill cooking up the food. Immediately I... More
