We had a party of 10 dine at Island View Guest House and it was fantastic! The honor bar was great and NOBODY had to wait for drinks :) They had a great selection of wine, beer,liquor, water and soft drinks. What impressed us the most was the food. It was absolutely fantastic (the steaks were cooked to perfection!) and... More

The steak (ribeye) was among the best I have ever had! A self serve bar was very unique and a surprise. The view, breathtaking. A must go to spot.

Drove out here from Redhook based on reviews. Maybe this is good food compared to other places on the island, but it's really not all that great. View was quite nice. Limited options for making your own drinks, and only a couple of wine varieties, but not too bad. Since everyone raved about the steak,that's what we got. For $30,... More

St Thomas' Best Kept Secret! What a delicious meal! The setup is great, an open air patio with an honor bar, and a couple feet away is the chef and his grill. Get to the 6pm seating a few minutes early to watch the sunset over Charlotte Amalie Harbor. You cannot beat the price either.

recommended by locals who work at the smoking rooster to try this restaurant and what an amazing place. the view from the restaurant was beautiful and the food, although a simple menu, tasted great. I love the concept of serving yourself drinks and being able to watch the owner cook your steak. the owners were super friendly. overall great eating... More

We were taken here last night by some locals who had never been. We brought our own wine as we were told they did not serve wine, but they do! And for only a $10 corking fee, how can you go wrong. All 4 of us had the ribeye. Seriously, I have never seen a ribeye this large. I didn't... More

This place is absolutely a hidden jewel. The view is spectacular - the parking is a bit tight and the locals love this spot so DEFINITELY call ahead and get either the 630 pm or the 8 pm seating. Thurs Fri Sat and Sun - They have steak grilled to perfection on an outdoor grill that the owner is expert... More

Everything was amazing. From being greeted upon arrival by the staff (including your chef who's only a few feet away on the grill). Simple menu but amazing flavor. Hubs did the ribeye and I did the filet and added blackened shrimp. All perfectly done and nicely charred from the grill. Best steak on the island. Quaint and personable with great... More

This is almost awesome find. Came from a friendly recommendation. Menu is very simple. Steaks, fish and a veggie dish. Honor bar-pour your own drinks. Beautiful hillside view of Charlotte Amalie. The steaks were true perfection. It's like having a cookout at a friends house. Two sittings at 6 & 8 pm. But only around the weekend. I can't wait... More
