St. Croix Restaurants and Food

About St Croix's Restaurants and Food... Succulent clawless Caribbean lobster, with a tail rich in pure white meat. Fresh caught mahi mahi (which is a fish locally called Dolphin, but is not the porpoise!), served island style with pungent local spices. Today's catch of yellowfin tuna, broiled, baked, or perhaps with the chef's special Caribbean herb and spice mixture. Conch chowder for starters, key lime pie and Cruzan coffee for closers. And of course, aged Black Angus steaks for those who can travel but cannot go without! Dining on St. Croix is a magical whirl of gourmet chefs, local delicacies, open air seaside restaurants, moonlit nights, and no jackets required.

Paradise found! Although you can't eat atmosphere, you can drink it in! Some of the island's nicest restaurants are in historic courtyards, overlooking marinas, on the beach, in the finest resorts, and tucked away in places that say "call for directions." From beach bars to those establishments featured on national television, every meal is a highlight of your vacation. For local delights, stop at the food vans selling Roti, sort of a West Indian burrito, and Salt fish Pate, deep fried and great with a cold beer! Be sure to sample the West Indian Pig Roasts and buffets offered at the resorts! Major credit cards are accepted, and reservations are preferred. A word to the wise: ties and jackets are definitely not in fashion for the gentlemen; ladies, it's either casual or casual elegance.

Did you know... Each April, St Croix restaurateurs host one of the most unique and exciting entertainment and culinary events in all of the Caribbean. The event, "A Taste of St Croix", came about as a way to showcase the diverse and wonderful eateries of this spectacular island. For such a small place, St Croix boasts some of the region's finest culinary talent. With over 40 chefs competing for top honors in seven food categories, the event is a gastronomical blast.

Weddings / Romance

DID YOU KNOW THAT... Many couples are opting to save the money (not to mention the stress and hard work) of a big wedding at home by escaping to a Caribbean island for a combination wedding/honeymoon. Upon their return, they can share the event by showing the video and photographs at an informal reception.

All the islands are beautiful and, on some, weddings have become a major promotional tool. So why should you choose St. Croix above others?

Moving Here

DID YOU KNOW... In addition to it's long and rich multicultural history, friendly people, open spaces, the blue sea and near perfect year-round weather, there are a number of reasons to consider relocating to St Croix. Most importantly, the U.S. Virgin Islands, which includes St Croix, operate under U.S. law which is important in both business and personal matters. 

This means mainland US companies do business here including retail stores such as K-Mart, Radio Shack, Office Max, McDonald's and Wendy's. Also U.S. financial services including a variety of U.S. mortgage, insurance and banking companies offer local service.  U.S. cellular phone companies including AT&T and Sprint, both operate here.

Arriving By Cruise Ship

Our Port

The Ann E. Abramson Pier is named in honor of the Virgin Islands Public Works Commissioner who was responsible for much of the rejuvenation of the Frederiksted area. This is the pier where most of the large cruise ships dock, as well as military ships, submarines, and other naval vessels. From time to time, tall-ships especially from Denmark, can be seen here.

The dock itself has been a favorite diving place especially for viewing bright coral, sponges, and a multitude of fish life. A night dive should reveal the sea-horses unique to this pier. Visitors arriving at the pier often walk through the small town of Frederiksted and walk to the nearby beaches and beach club
