We stopped by here on our last night of vacation. Admittedly we were somewhat reflective as our vacation was ending; tired from the amazing vacation, but also over fancy meals and prices. We opted for the bistro because of the location, and our desire for something casual. This isn’t as casual as it might seem. It is beachside, which is... More

We were seated at a two top facing the water with a wonderful view of Bolongo bay and it's gentle lapping waves. After sunset, the stars were spectacular. The fish and scollops were good but not great (especially for the price). Because it was all you can eat shrimp night our waitress was kept busy with large tables of folks... More

There were eight of us eating here. We all started off with a special rum drink of Mim's. Before I forget our waitress Joan was awesome. So happy and gave good suggestions for dinner. As we all know the attitude of our waitress or waiter can make or break a meal. She certainly added delightfully to our meal. Everyone ordered... More

Regular stop during our vacations, as we stay within walking distance. Waterside, wonderful views of Bolongo Bay. Very friendly staff. Island style wahoo and steak are outstanding. Best part is waterside, outdoors. Always good, dependable for great dinner. Recommend at least one stop.

We had heard that this place had great seafood food and they did. We had their special catch of the day and it we very well one. The setting overlook the bay made this a great romantic dining experience. Staff were great.

Mim's is a shoreside terrace - some tables under a roof, some in the open. The wait staff was prompt and attentive. My wife had their signature curry lobster while I had the sesame ahi tuna; both were delicious and reasonable portions. The cocktails were well made and average price for the island. Two things kept me from giving this... More

If you love seafood, then the Mim's Lobster Special is a must! Fresh from the sea lobster smothered in a coconut and mild curry sauce make this a rich and delicious dish. I recommend a squeeze of lemon to cut the richness of the dish.

We were recommended to Mims by our taxi driver while staying at the Marriott Frenchman's Reef. It was only a 10-minute trip and definitely worth it. We started with the conch fritters...amazing, like hush puppies with pieces of conch. Each of us had a fish entree, I had the Wahoo and she had the Grouper. Both were prepared differently, one...

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.
