We loved the atmosphere of being on the water at the marina and the laid back vibe. The food was good, but a bit overpriced. Our main issue was being eaten alive by mosquitoes. The bar offered mosquito repellent, which was very nice. We watched...More

Hi Nicole, I am sorry it was particularly buggy that night. Normally there is a perfect east breeze that keep the mosquitos away. I am glad that you came to visit us, and hope to see you again soon. Thanks!

I've been a big fan of this place for YEARS and hope to continue. They've had a couple of ownership changes during that time and the one in 2012 was a disaster. A popular past bartender and current owner stepped in to save the day...More

The shark and bake was spectacular, the drinks were good, and the live reggae was awesome. This place has a Negril Jamaica vibe which I loved.

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!!
