Iggie's Beach Bar & Grill

St. Thomas | (340) 693-2600

Iggie's Beach Bar & Grill

Iggie's Beach Bar & Grill , a part of Bolongo Bay Beach Resort, is a good option for travelers visiting this part of the island; it's 2.8 miles to the southeast of Charlotte Amalie. Seafood (of course) and Caribbean food both share the spotlight at this colorful restaurant atmosphere.

Designed to look like a tiki hut, Iggies Beach Bar definitely offers the tropical vibe that guests are looking for on their beach vacation.

Dinghy's Beach Bar & Grill

Water Island | (340) 227-5525

Dinghy's Beach Bar & Grill is a logical selection for guests who are going to explore this side of the island. It's 2.5 miles south west of Charlotte Amalie. With a following of food lovers, this destination isn't known simply for its Caribbean delights and particularly hamburgers, but it's also good at pizza.

The menu here is quite eclectic with offerings including American, Caribbean, Mexican, and Caribbean favorites.

Sangria's Beachside Bistro

Cowpet Bay, St. Thomas | (340) 714-7874

Sangria's Beachside Bistro, which is part of Elysian Beach Resort, is located in Cowpet Bay, a neighborhood in East End; three quarters of a mile (one and a quarter kilometers) to the southeast of Red Hook. People who desire pizza will particularly enjoy dining here during a trip to Cowpet Bay.

Dining at Sangria's takes place on a covered patio overlooking the beach, where guests sit on woven chairs pushed up to patio-style glass-top tables.

Eat @ Cane Bay

Cane Bay, St. Croix | (340) 718-0360

Eat @ Cane Bay

Eat @ Cane Bay can be found toward the center of Cane Bay, in the North Shore; 6.3 miles to the northeast of Frederiksted. As part of their panel of Caribbean food, this potential favorite likes to suggest its coffee and hamburgers.

Eat @ Cane Bay is known for their Burger of the Month (B.O.T.M), a program in which they feature a new hamburger creation each month. Fresh caught seafood, cocktails, beer, wine, and international food offerings are also available, including a reggae brunch menu on Sundays.

High Tide

Downtown Cruz Bay, St. John | (340) 714-6169

High Tide

Situated near the center of downtown Cruz Bay, High Tide is on the same premises as Wharfside Landing. Pleasantly surprising, this dining destination is not just Caribbean creations and one favorite, hamburgers, but wouldn't you know they're also masters of seafood.

High Tide offers high quality dishes in a casual setting. While lunch offers casual entrees like hamburgers and tacos, dinner has a bit higher taste of meals, including skirt steak and seared tuna. However, do not forget this is a "bar" and grill, so there is also plenty of cold drinks to order.
