St. Croix | (340) 772-0002

Rhythms at Rainbow Beach

Rhythms at Rainbow Beach, on the premises of Rainbow Beach, is on Rainbow Beach; it is 1.3 miles to the north of Frederiksted. Although some delight in the general selection of Caribbean culinary creations, this possible dining pick serves up an awful lot of appetizers and family fare.

High Tide

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

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.
