We are bringing my sister & bro in-law for their 25th anniversary. They would like to go to a nice restaurant on their special day. She is allergic to shell fish! Poor girl! So it has to offer more than just seafood and have a nice atmosphere - maybe even a nice view. We don't really eat out at "fancy" places when we are on island so this is a first for us. We would like to stay on STT for this dinner because it will be our first full day on island. TIA!

What STT Resident says about Stone Farmhouse is true. Very inconsistant in both quality and service and while the building interior is lovely -no views to speak of, whatsoever.

We are on Island now and it is all good ! I think Mims restaurant at Bolongo Bay is the most romantic , you are outside on the water and the food is very good . She features seafood but has other fish and steaks , she is only open in the evening but is always busy !

We are at Sapphire for a month and love the quiet here , this has the best beach and pool of all the resorts on the Island...too bad the owners can't get it together . New BBQ food truck at the top of the hill is good and reasonable prices !

So far we have been to The Pie Whole , really good pizza !! Dinner at A Fish Tail in Red Hook was again a disappointment for me , I have never had a good meal there , but the rest of my family likes it . Green House , very consistent and good , Delly Deck for breakfast and people watching . Met up with friends at Iggies but like it best on Weds Carnival night , will take G'kids there when they get here next week....a must do for the now 12 & 16 year olds .

A few quick bites in Red Hook & Cruz Bay , otherwise cooking in the condo

I will write a few tips I have picked up over the years , later.

Really sad that the wonderful Book Store in Havensight closed !! I have a Kindle but sometimes you just need to hold a book , especially liked their selection of books on the Caribbean....now where to for books ? K-mart doesn't have much

The STT Humane Society flea market is open Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays starting at 11AM and has a whole big room dedicated to books, books and more books! Not only that but they're all nicely categorized with the novels sorted by author. 50¢ each for paperbacks, many of which haven't even been opened, and a huge variety of hard covers too to suit all tastes. A lot of feline interruptus in there and particularly a very sociable calico who's very chatty and shows enormous interest in one's particular selections ...

The campus is located at the traffic light intersection directly across from Market Square East (where CULess is located) on Weymouth Rhymer Highway (Rte 38).

Let us know how you like the places you choose for dining out, especially the ones listed for the anniversary dinner.

I never have been a fan of Fish Tales in Red Hook.
Ate there twice and didn't like either meal nor did my guest.

We ended up going to Mim's for their Anniversary dinner. Our first night there we always go to Hull bay Hideaway. The waitress there told my sis-in-law they should go to Mims so that's where we ended up. I was disappointed with the crab dip appetizer but the seafood linguine was good! I hope I get to try Oceana next time! That was where I had planned to take them.

We had out first meal at Fish Tales in Red Hook & loved the fresh mahi mahi sandwich and the scallop por boy was amazing! It was allot of food for a $14/plate! We had never stopped there because it looks like it only seats a few people. I was surprised to see the huge deck when we entered.

Another great spot we found was the Tap & Still in Red Hook! Great burgers!

Island Time Pub has great pizza & Jess is a great bartender! She makes one mean Lime in de coconut & Dark n Stormy!

I was VERY disappointed with the burgers at Shipwreck Tavern. They used to be so good. We always order our burgers Med Rare & they were very WELL done = Grey!

Of course we went to Bumpa's to get my peanut butter, banana & honey french toast one morning too!

We seemed to spend a lot of time this trip in Red Hook I guess! I am still in search for the best conch fritter on island! I don't like a ton of big chunky peppers...I want to taste the conch in my fritter! I really wanted to try Off The Grid but my newbies were afraid???! :S

Thanks for all the advice!
