George's USVI Recommendation Guide

ST. THOMAS AND ST. JOHN RESTAURANTS AND NIGHTLIFE

A very important resource for restaurant and nightlife information is the monthly publication of This Week and St. Thomas Source magazines that are available in our store located in the heart of downtown, St. Thomas. There are pockets of restaurants located around the islands. We've tried to categorize the restaurants by cuisine. For reservations, hours of operation, contact info, and relative cost I would suggest cross-referencing with the magazines mentioned above or check the restaurant website.
