Dining w/ kids in St. Thomas

My husband and I vacation in Carribean frequently and have been to St. Thomas about 8 times but never with kids. This is going to be our first trip to our Frenchman's Cove timeshare and going with family including two girls (9 and 7). Looking for recommendations for dining and others that are kid friendly. Iggies on the beach is a no-brainer but not sure of other good options. Suggestions welcome!

For breakfast & lunch, Delly Deck in Havensight is a good bet & not expensive by island standards. Also, Hook, Line & Sinker on the water in Frenchtown is perfect. You could also pick up BBQ at Texas Pit BBQ (take-out only) in Red Hook or in the Wheatley Center close to the hospital. They give you a lot of food for the money & the leftovers are good also.

There's also Fajita's Mexican Restaurant at the Carib Beach Resort by the airport. You'll probably enjoy Molly Malone's in Red Hook www.mollymolonesvi.com

Wikked can get a little pricey but it's in Yacht Haven Grande next to Havensight www.wikkedrestaurant.com or Fat Turtle also in Yacht Haven Grande www.yachthavengrande.com

Here's Delly Deck's site. Locals from the governor to taxi drivers eat here for breakfast or lunch & they do a Sunday brunch, I think:

Shipwreck tavern near the cruise dock. Amazing burgers and lots of pirate atmosphere.

I agree with Shipwreck but be aware that they tack on an 18% service charge & most people don't notice that & add on a regular tip on top of it.

The truck at the west end of Brewers Beach near the VI University serves up a great meal sized burger chicken or beef. Chicken burger was $5.00 and filled both of us.
Be adventurous, try the trucks!

Thanks for your input. We've been to Hook. Line and Sinker and that one never occurred to me!

We heard good things about Shipwreck when we were in St. Thomas last November and had that on our list to try this time. Thanks for the recommendations!
