Let me start off by saying, order the island calamari!!! By far the best calamari I've ever had. We also ordered the crusted tuna and jerk wings & were not disappointed. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. There was a live band that was...More

Have loved this St. Thomas landmark for years. Really loving the new staff and especially the new menu. Some of the old favorites have been updated and don't disappoint. The laid back atmosphere keeps us coming back and we always have a great time!

Latitude 18 is one of the last remaining true island, open air restaurant in St. Thomas. Come experience the rustic charm of this 25 year old landmark! The road is bumpy but would you rather go to a bad bar at the end of a good road or a GREAT bar at the end of a bad road? Latitude 18 sits on the edge of the azure ocean. We serve Caribbean and American cuisine! And the FAMOUS "Shark & Bake" Sandwich which was featured on the Food Network and is available ONLY at Latitude 18. Renowned for LIVE ENTERTAINMENT there's live music and dancing EVERY NIGHT OF THE WEEK! Latitude 18, THE LIVE MUSIC CAPITAL OF ST. THOMAS Latitude 18.....Great Food.....Live Music!!
