Never having been to St. Thomas before we weren't sure of where to go for dinner. We asked several hotel staff, taxi drivers, and shop owners for some recommendations and almost all of them said "Mim's for seafood". On our third night we took a taxi to Mim's and were surprised at how beautiful the setting was- with the open... More

Both we absolutely delicious. It's a small restaurant so I recommend calling ahead for reservations but this is a must visit while on St Thomas. This is... More

We have been to Mim's Seaside Bistro now for the 4th time over the past few years. To be frank, their lobster dishes on the grill are very good. But the rest of our party of 4 had a less than great results. My NY strip that was suppose to be medium rare was medium at best. It was served... More

The title says a lot! Great lobster, very good seafood restaurant. Right on the bay, literally waves crashing just below your feet. My only issue is the pricing on the lobster: Small = $50 - $70; Medium = $70 - $90: Large = $90+. Both our small lobsters were $70, who decides?? Have you ever charged $50?? It's great lobster,...

We arrived early and grabbed the last parking spot. Our table was ready and we were seated beachside under cover. Our waitress was... More

I had the best lobster here ever. It was almost too much to eat but well worth it. The waitresses for fun personable and very accommodating. You literally are right next to the water and can hear the waves as you eat. Check it out for sure!!!

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.
