We ate there a few different times during out stay. Food was always good. People are nice. The cocunut shrimp and steak were verry good. The pricing was pretty comparable to state side. My steak dinner was $30.00.

We had a wonderful family dinner at Mim's by the ocean. The lobster was done perfectly, and was the largest spiny lobster I have had. Staff were attentive and polite. Cannot beat the crashing waves right by the table.

Started off w the coconut shrimp which was slightly over cooked. For dinner I had the salmon and shrimp. The food was a little salty but delicious overall. Unfortunately the service was poor =( The waitress was a little standoffish ~ borderline rude at times.

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!

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.
