Island View Guest House never disappoints! The staff are friendly and the steaks are cooked on the grill while you watch. Honor bar with great selection, awesome salad bar, fresh seafood. We have never had a bad experience at this lovely, one of a kind restaurant!

We come to this restaurant every time we visit the island. We were fortunate to have a friend who works at Megan's Bay suggest this place. This past week we were there and it was the best meal of the week. I suggest you call ahead for reservations because they only do 2 seatings for dinner and it always seems... More

Make sure reservation before your vacation to assure a seat at one of their 2 time slots. You WILL NOT be disappointed with this meal. It is a pleasure eating at a restaurant that doesn't offer too many choices. We ordered the Mahi yet again and it was the best fish we had all week! The service and staff are... More

We did a reservation for 8 people and requested the tables close to the Veranda. A lady name Kara suggested that we got there before the second serving which is at 8pm and we will be able to pick the table we wanted. We arrived at 7:30 and although the table we wanted was available a very impolite, unprofessional waiter... More

One of my favorite restaurants on island. Great view. Homey feel. Small, family run business. Small (but amazing) menu. Self-service salad bar and alcohol. Always get the filet. Service is great and atmosphere can't be beat. Parking is a little difficult. Only two seating times so call for reservations first!

Thanks to Josh for talking us in after we were brutally lost trying to get there!! One of the best Ribeye steaks I've ever had...grilled by Ron just out side the seating area with a spectacular view. Only open for dinner Thursday, Friday & Saturday at 6:00 or 8:00, so make your reservation early in the week. Be your own... More

What a romantic place. Truly spectacular setting. We were early for our 8 p.m. reservation and had time to settle in to a wonderful two top that was a bit raised from level and gave us a nice view out. The restaurant has an honor bar and this was actually great. We'd come from happy hour and when confronted with... More

This hideaway has minimal parking, so get there early! Better yet, take a taxi. The restaurant has two sittings - and is not known to accommodate reservations on-time. So be patient. That having been said, there's an 'honor system' serve-yourself cocktail bar and salad bar...and the food is delicious.

We made 2 trips to the island view guesthouse for dinner. The meal was fantastic and the atmosphere was even better. Strongly recommend if you are looking for a great meal with some of the best people on st Thomas. Only issue is you need to make reservations 2 weeks plus in advance to get in.
