Just wanted to pass on a word of caution. We are Brits and we understood that the custom in USA (and we assumed therefore in USVI) is to tip about 15% on meals if you're happy with the service - more than that if you're really delighted and less (or nothing?) if you're not happy.
We nearly got caught out in Christiansted - don't know if this is typical.
Hubby and I had our first proper meal out at Rumrunners. No starters, two main courses, two drinks (one non-alcoholic), two coffees and one dessert. It was fine, nothing to write home about and we were a bit taken aback when the bill came to 82$! That's quite an expensive meal back home.
We were just working out the tip when I noticed 14 dollars had been added to the bill as "SC". When we questioned this it turned out they had added over 20% Service charge (the original bill was 68 dollars and they had added 14). If I had been more prepared I would have complained but we let it go at that. To think we nearly added another 15% on top!
We ate twice at Angry Nates and the second time the same thing happened - they added over 20% to the bill. Now after Rumrunners I had been prepared and had checked their menu in advance, which said they would add 18% to any party of 6 or more. There were two of us, and the service had been really slow! When I questioned it she said "Oh, I thought you were Danish" - as though this was justification.
So please be wary when you get your bill - it may have increassed by over 20% without your knowing it.
We felt a bit abused and wouldn't recommend either of the above establishments for this reason. The same didn't happen at either the Buccanneer or Elizabeth's at H20, where we were left free to reward good service at our own discretion (and did so).
