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.

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
