From the moment you walk into the property at Mary's Boone your looking around and seeing everything perfectly manicured. The details in everything speaks alot about the person who built it and the people who take care of it now. We made it into the Tides for lunch, after gazing at all the gardens and buildings, and we were greeted... More

I asked the waiter for a suggestion of what to order. He told me that the Thai Shrimp was everyone's favorite. It was very bland and boring. He asked me if I wanted something else instead. I ordered just a shrimp cocktail. He comped the shrimp cocktail but I had to pay for the Thai Shrimp that I didn't eat.... More

We had breakfast, lunch and dinner here since we were staying at Mary's Boon (this is their restaurant). Breakfast was very good. They have the BEST burgers here, we had them for lunch twice during our stay. We had dinner our last night and it was wonderful. We both had steak...really delicious and perfectly cooked. This was one of the... More

Went one day for lunch and literally had to track down a server to get waited on. Tried to go to the bar to order a drink and was told to "figure it out" before I wasted the bar tenders time asking a question. Food was way over priced and not too great. We asked SPECIFICALLY if Mayo came on... More

An easy stop for a cold bev when coming home to Mary's. The girls were always friendly & helpful, drinks refreshing and waves soothing. Mozza sticks were tasty too!

We stumbled upon this restaurant as we were walking down Simpson Bay beach. They have beach chairs you can use if you purchase food from them--the food was really good, and the presentation was unexpectedly wonderful! The drinks were yummy, and you can't beat the ocean views from this location. Highly recommend!

While my sesame coated seared Tuna salad was good, my husbands chicken salad was disappointing. What was even more disappointing, was hunting down our wait staff. Not once but twice I had to get up and wander through the restaurant and bar, while asking if Isabella was around. Poor staff, they always add a tip into the bill, but I... More

Arrived on the island and after unpacking headed straight to Mary's Boon and Tides. As usual the Caesar salad was delicious and the Martinis well shaken.

Located in Mary's Boon, the restaurant and bar had a good menu to choose from. My wife had the fresh fish special and I chose the Flank Steak as I was told the new Chef was Brazilian and that was his specialty. I was not disappointed.
