The restaurant is only open Thursday Friday and Saturday. Call for reservations for 6:00 of 8:00 seating. Food is excellent cooked in an outdoor grill area. Prices are unbelievably reasonable. Honor bar system is fabulous. View of the city is incredible.

I have been fortunate to visit in St. Thomas and St. Croix on business. In St. Thomas, I stay at the Island View Guest House, which is close to the Airport.. It is owner and run by Beth and Ron Kirkendall, a couple originally from Indianapolis. They are wonderful hosts and super people. The rooms are very comfortable, views unbelievable,...

The food was excellent, but the view was priceless. Only open Thursday's Friday's and Saturdays. Reservations only at 6pm and 8pm make sure you try to go at 6pm so you can see the sunset. The only thing is 1 trip to the salad bar was $7 pp. Which I totally thought salad was included so was kind of annoyed...

What a delightful surprise! A couple people recommended this restaurant to us during our stay in St Thomas. We were so excited that we were able to get reservations. The restaurant is only open Thurs-Sat. It's easy to find just be careful on the steep driveway. The seatings are at 6pm & 8pm. We choose 8pm. There are only about...

Dinner at the Island View Guesthouse was delicious. My sister and I both ordered the Ribeye. I am normally a Filet girl but the Ribeye was so flavorful and grilled to medium rare perfection. The view was awesome and the service was top notch. Everyone at the restaurant is so warm and friendly. I definitely recommend the 6pm seating because...

We ran into the Island View Guesthouse in kind of a panic - freshly arrived in St. Thomas for a week, our original hotel (Starz) had lost our reservation and had no rooms available, even though we booked nearly two months in advance. Luckily, a friend of my father's was able to recommend Island View Guest House, and so we...

I cannot thank the staff enough for their open arms and willingness to help with anything. The room was super clean, bed comfortable, and continental breakfast was great. Very affordable too. I stayed for one night with my two sons. The owner was hands on and helped me with getting me a cab and the staff even offered to cook...

We stayed here on two occasions for one night each time. At the beginning of our holiday and at the end. The rooms were clean but very cheaply put together. Not a place you would want tomhang out at. The buildings look old and rickity and the furnishings very very motel like. The staff are indeed very friendly and accomodating....

We spent three nights at the Island View prior to a 7 day sailing excursion. Our room 15 had a beautiful view of the bay. The king size bed was new and a masterpiece of comfort. The room clean, well ventilated, and had good A/C. We only ran the A/C at night simply because I like it cold when I...

Absolutely LOVED this place!!! My husband and I stayed for three nights and I could have stayed longer. The room was very comfortable and had a wonderful view. The owners were just as nice as they could be and made us feel very welcome. We ate dinner there two out of the three nights and words can't describe how delicious...
