Gorgeous beach side view with an excellent lobster dinner. Majority of people that come to Mim's get this dish as it's known on the island as their specialty. Yum!

Had the Seafood Pasta dish (can't remember the name) and wife had the coconut lobster curry...both portions were astonishingly large, excellent tasting, service was adequate, prices...well....it's not cheap. NOTHING is cheap there...so expect the damage and enjoy the meal!

Great little spot right on the water. Most tourists hit Mim's so it's always pumping and the food is quite good! I would recommend this spot if your visiting St John, but be advised there are stairs getting down to the restaurant!

Went there for dinner with lots of family. The neon lights in the covered portion of the restaurant we were at first annoying but we got used to them after about a half hour. The outdoor uncovered portion was an amazing setting and a romantic...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.
