Restaurants in U.S. Virgin Islands
You will have no trouble finding plenty of local food at U.S. Virgin Islands restaurants, as well as international fare. For instance callaloo, a spicy soup, is a popular Caribbean cuisine offered at many restaurants in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Fresh seafood is a given on the islands. Woody’s Seafood Saloon is a local favorite for conch fritters. Asolare, a U.S. Virgin Islands restaurant with Asian style, has great dumplings and noodles but also an excellent view of Cruz Bay. Gladys' Café is St. Thomas’s best brunch spot, located in Charlotte Amalie. Head here for the best hash browns and omelettes. Hervé Restaurant & Wine Bar, on Government Hill, has French- and Caribbean-influenced food that is among the island's best. Try chicken and mushroom crêpes at lunch or the braised rabbit loin for dinner. See below for more dining options in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Residents love Woody’s Seafood Saloon, good for conch fritters and cold beer. There are often more patrons than can fit into the small space, so you can opt to take your drinks to the tables outside.
While the food at the Pan-Asian restaurant is good—dumplings, noodles, seared and grilled fish dishes—the main draw is the hilltop view of Cruz Bay, especially stunning as the sun sets over St. Thomas.
A roadside shack minutes from the beach. The namesake milk shake is a blend of almond-crunch ice cream and amaretto.
This open waterfront space keeps its stylish diners happy with pan-seared rainbow trout in a lemon caper-brown-butter sauce, and lobster, shrimp, mussels, and clams in a tomato-fennel broth. Choose from three-, five-, or nine-plate tapas-style tasting menus.
The French- and Caribbean-influenced food here is among the island's best, as is the view from atop Government Hill. At lunch, try the chicken and mushroom crêpes; the braised rabbit loin is a must for dinner.
With its billowing white curtains and sexy blue lighting, this restaurant is more South Beach than St. Thomas.
The island's most delicious brunch spot is in a stone courtyard off Charlotte Amalie's main drag. It can't be beat for its hash browns and omelettes, served on checkered tablecloths. Purchase some of owner Gladys Isles's from scratch hot sauce to take home.
Garden-fresh and constantly changing, the 10 small plates on the menu can be ordered individually or in trios. For more sustenance, there are larger entrées, like cornmeal-crusted snapper in a brown sugar, rum, and plantain reduction.
