Great place to hang and look out on the water. Love the $4 crunchy chicken tacos. Nachos are great too- service is excellent! Love their banana colada.

We had breakfast here our first day. Liked the location (right on the water). The meal was just ok. Not great; not bad. Had to send my pancakes back because they were raw in the middle. The second batch was better. Had heard good things about this place but for us it was good but nothing special. Service was good.

Jimbo R, Owner at High Tide Bar & Seafood Grill, responded to this review

While you did enjoy the view, we wish it was the same story for the pancakes. You should have expected them to be properly prepared the first time, so thanks for bringing that up. Glad we had a chance to get you another batch and make things right. While we didn't make the strongest impression on your first visit, we... More

Good food, great bartender and a nice place to relax by the water after you get off the ferry from St. Thomas. The rum punch will really make you relax after a long day of traveling.

It's awesome the rum punch was exactly what you needed after a long day of traveling! We bet you were both tired, Jer and Rachael, so we're thrilled you had a relaxing time here. Next time you come back in from St. Thomas, we'd love to see you. All the best, High Tide More

It's a neat little hole in the wall but prices are not what it should be. I spend over 20 dollars on a quesadilla. Really? Nice bar bathroom is right beside kitchen which is awkward. Bugs are bad. Food was pretty good service was good too!

Jimbo R, Owner at High Tide Bar & Seafood Grill, responded to this review

We wish we could have made a better impression when it came to cleanliness. We're pretty close to the beach, but we do everything we can to make sure bugs aren't around. We hope you did speak to a manager, Daniel -- we would have quickly addressed it if given a chance. With that being said, we're glad you enjoyed... More

I have eaten here a couple times when I've been waiting for the ferry - it's right on the beach and you can even go for a swim and sit on their chairs in the sand. The food is good, the staff is incredibly friendly, and the cocktails are great.

What a wonderful place to enjoy breakfast. Great service and good food with a wonderful view. My Huevos Rancheros was fantastic and full of flavor. The prices were very reasonable and the service was fast. Definitely a stop for us again.

the food was great and the drinks were great - once you got them; but everyone on that staff is definitely on island time....so just be prepared to wait

Jimbo R, Owner at High Tide Bar & Seafood Grill, responded to this review

While we do tend to take things a bit easy on the island, you should always expect attentive service from us. After all, Shari, we know people come here to relax -- the last thing they should worry about is if their drinks and food are on their way. We're sorry if that wasn't the case for you, but we...

Description
Like the waves that crash on our beaches, our islands are full of people that come and go. Like the boats that leave our docks filled with guests that want to stay, our gates wave goodbye to friends who want to remain for one more drink, one more bite of the best the ocean has to offer, or one more minute of closing their eyes and smelling the salt in the sea and listening to the caress of the ocean against the sand.

We know your time here is precious, everyone comes here to escape, to go on adventures with people they love the most. Here, we make it our vocation to help you experience the best of what the Virgin Islands has to offer. Our chefs have mastered both local and international cuisine, bartenders have figured out the best way to put spirit in our spirits, and all of our staff is happy to see you.

Honestly, we think there's no better backdrop to relax with friends or family, close that business deal, or even make the life-long commitment to the person you love the most.

We'll see you when the tide comes in.
