This was our second trip to St. John, and our second visit to High Tide. Being located dockside, the restaurant is afforded a super view of the harbor, which adds greatly to the ambiance. The food is well-prepared bar food and, while not haute cuisine, is certainly not too shabby. The service staff are always both friendly and professional, and... More

Great spot to sit and wait on the ferry to arrive (or chill while all the older folks clamor to get on before anyone else). One of the best Eggs Benedict I've ever experienced. Came with tater tots on the side. Our waiter was great. Knew we were catching the 11am ferry and moved things along to keep us on... More

While you weren't a big fan of the rum punch, we're glad you enjoyed things overall. We know you had an early ferry to catch, so thanks for taking the time to see us. Hope to welcome you back for another Benedict next time you're back. All the best, High Tide More

Wait staff is friendly and efficient. Chris, the bartender, is one of the most cheerful folks on an island full of friendly staff. The food was good, the view was delightful, and watching all the folks getting off and getting on the ferry was entertaining.

Always great food and service, so I highly recommend it, but!! You guys got rid of the skirt steak! Right before I came. I got the ribeye instead (very good!) But i haven't been in a few years and really wanted that skirt steak! Also it was on your website. Can I get a recipe? Ha ha. Anyhow, perfect location... More

Sorry we don't have the skirt steak anymore, Nathan! As we ship our ingredients to the island, we have to revisit the menu from time-to-time to see what we can feasibly offer. It was a tough cut for us, but we're glad you still had a chance to enjoy our ribeye. Thanks for always visiting us -- you know how... More

While visiting St. John we had one dinner at High Tide. The happy hour drinks were great and served in glass! The view of Cruz Bay is really nice, but its high traffic since it's the first stop after the ferry terminal. Our food was okay - nothing too exciting, but I'd try it again just to be sure.

Description
Like the waves that crash on our beaches, our islands are full of people that come and go. Like the boats that leave our docks filled with guests that want to stay, our gates wave goodbye to friends who want to remain for one more drink, one more bite of the best the ocean has to offer, or one more minute of closing their eyes and smelling the salt in the sea and listening to the caress of the ocean against the sand.

We know your time here is precious, everyone comes here to escape, to go on adventures with people they love the most. Here, we make it our vocation to help you experience the best of what the Virgin Islands has to offer. Our chefs have mastered both local and international cuisine, bartenders have figured out the best way to put spirit in our spirits, and all of our staff is happy to see you.

Honestly, we think there's no better backdrop to relax with friends or family, close that business deal, or even make the life-long commitment to the person you love the most.

We'll see you when the tide comes in.
