We went Latitude 18 with a group of friends. The road was rough but what a good time. An artist was playing by the name of Gary Keys. What a great guy and musician. We all had dinner and drinks. We met the owner Rick who helps out every night with drinks. Everyone in the bar was singing with Gary... More

We selected this bar/restaurant through one of the local guidebooks. It is extremely difficult to find but fun once you get there. There is a band on the weekends and all the locals come to enjoy. Food is ordinary but portions are large.

This hard to find restaurant at the end of a very bumpy road is worth the effort. Popular with locals and boaters.

Latitude 18 has been around a good long while and we always have a great evening. Went again this week, first night back in STT in 4 years. Mix of locates and tourists, but only those who can find their way down a dark, pot-hole filled dirt road. Well worth the trip, we will be back this week!

We visited here for the second year in a row with a friend who lives on the island. Menu is limited, but food and drinks are good, reasonably priced, and service is just fine. Recommend this place if you want something local and not overpriced.

The food and service are awful. If you want a beer and some wings maybe while you listen to a so so band, then this is your place.

10 of us went to listen to the fiddler a few weeks ago and we all had a good time. We ate, we drank and some danced. It was a cool evening with a light breeze which is when it is perfect conditions for Latitude 18 being it is open right on the water.

My friends and I enjoyed a great night at Latitude 18. The place is very casual - right on the water with a view of Red Hook. We had some tasty local food, including the roti, shark bites and fish and chips. Our waitress had a wicked, dry sense of humor and turned out to be a great singer, sitting... More

We heard from some locals how good the food was and how much fun the live music was, so we went on a Tuesday night. We had been warned that it was tough to find and that it was a bit of a dive (true on both counts) but definitely worth the effort. We had a great meal and enjoyed... More

Well worth the drive down the dirt road. Drinks and food were good and reasonably priced. Wide range of live music and jokes by Sun Mountain Band were a hoot. Small dance floor but not many people were dancing so those of us who wanted to had enough room. Meet the original owner for some great stories!

Latitude 18 is one of the last remaining true island, open air restaurant in St. Thomas. Come experience the rustic charm of this 25 year old landmark! The road is bumpy but would you rather go to a bad bar at the end of a good road or a GREAT bar at the end of a bad road? Latitude 18 sits on the edge of the azure ocean. We serve Caribbean and American cuisine! And the FAMOUS "Shark & Bake" Sandwich which was featured on the Food Network and is available ONLY at Latitude 18. Renowned for LIVE ENTERTAINMENT there's live music and dancing EVERY NIGHT OF THE WEEK! Latitude 18, THE LIVE MUSIC CAPITAL OF ST. THOMAS Latitude 18.....Great Food.....Live Music!!
