This restaurant has a prime location for a late romantic evening of yummy seafood. The waves crash on the rocks and the tables face to the most beautiful view of that blue water. The food was great. We shared a huge plate of crab legs, that were all a crab lover could ask for.

Mim's was recommended to us as the 'best' place on the island for dinner. Though the service was attentive and prompt, the food was not. I had the shrimp scampi Shrimp was 'soggy' and the the pasta overcooked/mushy my husband had the special Old wife fish with rice which he enjoyed. The biggest complaint was the condition of the Men's... More

We stayed at the Bolongo Bay Beach Resort over the holidays and walked a short ways down the beach to Mim's for my husband's birthday dinner. The view was fantastic. The staff was very friendly and attentive and the food was phenomenal! We had a party of 8 and tried various things on the menu and they all were very... More

Top notch food served at Mim's. Very cozy beachfront restaurant with delicious appetizers & entrees. The wahoo in creole sauce was the best ever tasted. Prepared perfectly. All other selections were enjoyed by everyone. We will definitely visit again when we return to St. Thomas.

We found out about Mims from a recommendation from a local. This hideaway restaurant is on the beach with a great menu and great food. Highly recommend.

We took a taxi there and we very surprised by what a beautiful location Mims is located at. The ocean is right there, the staff very friendly and the food was very good. I got the shrimp scampi and it was outstanding. My wife got the Lobster Curry- it was out of the world according to her.

This place is in a great location with a wonderful view, however I was not impressed with the food here. I ordered Salmon and it was very boring. I would recommend this place for drinks only. Staff was friendly and place is not crowded.

This is a lovely little spot on Bolongo Beach. Very friendly people, dining covered and uncovered-was a small problem at the end of our meal as it started spritzing. Great fish dishes and very nice starters- esp. the froglegs. Small wine list with good prices. Pricilla was great. Just down the beach from Iggies. Very nice exp.

We've been staying at the Ritz Carlton for the last week, and this has been our favorite restaurant of the entire trip. It is a little hard to find, but if you take a cab there is no problem. The restaurant is open air, with half of the space covered by a roof. Tables are right on the water with... More

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.
