Stayed at a B&B on the hill above Jens. Walked down and got delicious wraps to bring back and eat while enjoying our view. Loved it.

This place by far has the friendliest owner. We were greeted like old friends, the guy LOVES what he does, and the place has great character. The menu was surprisingly diverse and the food came out fast and was delicious. Great find! Will definitely come back again!

Stopped in for a quick bit and a beer. Had the pleasure of being taking care of by Party Marty, he is quite the historian. I had a chicken roti which was excellent. I would recommend Jen's.

If you're looking for home cooking while you're downtown on St. Thomas definitely try Jen's Island Cafe and Deli. You will not believe how great the food is here. We had a chicken sandwich and a burger with her famous French fries and onion rings. All was amazing! You get a huge portion and the food is made to order.... More

Cruise stopped in St Thomas for the day. After sightseeing we asked a local where to go for lunch. We were told Jen's. I had the fish and chips. I can't remember what my friends had but we were all very pleased with our meals. The staff was so friendly. Will definitely go back if ever in St. Thomas again.

We stayed a week in St Thomas and had a few failed attempts at dining out. We found Jens and went back twice! The waiter is very knowledgable of the area and also works a snorkel tour and gives historical presentations. The lobster and crab quesadillas are so good and the Chicken Roti is a must!

Best burger I've had in a long time! Party Marty filled us in on the island history and the do's and dont's while traveling here. This is a must for lunch after shopping!!

I'm not sure the owner wanted our business we went in a little before closing and we were rushed out. Not pleasant at all. Diamond International recommended us there but I won't go back. Looks like processed food not whole made.
