St. Thomas after wedding plans?

Recommended Posts

Oh, the possibilities are practically endless.

I definitely second Petunia's suggestions of Cuzzins and Gladys'. Great local food like roti ( my favorite ) as well as more exotic dishes such as goat and oxtail, but you can get a chicken sandwich or hamburger, too.

Iggie's is also fun and right on the water. And plenty of room to move around.

How about here: St. Thomas Skyride to Paradise Point - Ride The View - Home

Your tour will probably take you here anyway. If you click the To Do button you'll see a link to dining. There are lots of cruise ship passengers who go up there because it's right across the street from the dock. And up a mountain. You can take a tram (there's a charge) or you can drive up there.

Tickles is also close to your price range and it's on the water in Crown Bay, but there isn't a beach. It's in a marina and there are usually quite a few locals hanging around. They don't have their own website, but this is from a blog: Tickles Dockside Pub - Winner of Best of St. Thomas 2008 Award

Hook Line and Sinker in Frenchtown may be a good choice for you as well. A warning though. In September it can be oppressively hot in there. If there's a breeze, it's great. The last time I was there which was about 2 years ago there was no a/c. It's right on the harbor in Charlotte Amalie and you can watch the seaplanes take off and land.

If you want to go to Red Hook on the east end of the island then maybe Duffy's Love Shack. I think every visitor to the island winds up there at least once: Welcome to the Islands!

Or if you're really serious to sticking to $15 p.p. then try Burrito Bay Deli. It's across the street from Duffy's in American Yacht Harbor. There's no table service. It's a counter where you order and you grab your own drink. There are actually very few tables inside, but there's a long counter outside where you can sit and there's also a few picnic tables between the building and the docks. I used to have breakfast there almost every morning when I dropped off the FH for work. It's, in my opinion, the best value for your money on the island, but there are absolutely no frills. It's deli paper and plastic cutlery. You can order ahead and have the food waiting for you. They don't have a website either but this will give you a good idea and a link to their menu. It's over a year old, but I doubt much has changed:

Sorry if this is overwhelming, but during my time of living on St Thomas I obviously ate out more often than I cooked.

Thanks for all of the suggestions. I have some researching to do! I came across Robert's American Grille. It looks nice. Has anyone ever been there for an event or even just a meal?

Robert's is a lovely beachside restaurant. I've had dinner there, and always enjoyed it. I wasn't aware that they do lunch, but looking at the website they have great lunch choices at reasonable prices. It seems like an excellent post wedding ceremony location, with a touch of class, right on the beach, and good food.

You will want to consider how many guests you have as to where you would go for lunch!

There are some good suggestions here!

You will want to make sure you make reservations as well! Cuzzin's, great local food located in town does not take reservations and gets very busy for lunch! Robert's in in a nice location, that might be the ticket!

Corinne jumping in.....

At the Blue Moon Cafe you are steps away from the water and if you time it right, a beautiful sunset. Roberts Grille is another favorite of mine. Room With a View has a great upstairs Martini Room, that is available for private parties. It is located on the grounds of Bluebeard's Castle (historic Site in St Thomas) which is awesome for photo's, and as its name indicates a great harbor view. George is the owner and contact. ROOM WITH A VIEW | Welcome. Good luck and lots of love!

Tho Brewers is a nice beach, it would not be a choice for me. The trees are far from the shoreline and you will be looking at the extention of the airport across the bay. Also, there are no restroom facilities there as well. You have much nicer options available to you!

Can someone recommend the best place for dinner after our ceremony? St Thomas or St John. 

Also, does anyone know if The Ritz is open to public? For instance, if I want to go get some pictures done with my girls prior to my ceremony, do you think I can just walk in with my photographer and girls?

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
