Go at Sunset the view is unbelievable. It's a bar so order bar food..... Tacos and conch fritters are great. At happy hour the food and drinks are half price.

The owners moved back to the states and the restaurant is now closed. I have written a review for this place previously, but thought people would want to know. Rumors about something else going in there, but currently the place is empty.

We loved coming here for happy hour. Sitting at the bar is so much fun and the view is beautiful. They have a daily happy hour with drink specials and tacos/slider specials. Very good and a nice crowd.

Great location, but was poorly un-prepared for a large group that we had. Food was horrible. I ordered Lobster Bisque and did not see any lobster. I was told that they puree their lobster...........really?

I hate saying anything negative about this place because our waitress was sweet and the person who showed up to our table was friendly and accommodating, but the food and the drinks were really lackluster. Maybe it was because it was almost the off season,...More

We stopped here for lunch after a day at the beach and before catching the next ferry back to St Thomas. Since it was a late lunch, the restaurant was not busy and we had an opportunity to get to know Matty. Great stories back...More
