Dinner with Peggy

Loved the fish tacos! Ice cream was delicious too. The sign is hidden but don't miss it. Peggy was a local kitty that joined us. I lost my cat a year ago so I loved it. The management was willing to relocate Peggy if we didn't want her dining with us.

The food at Rowdy Joe's was amazing. My husband and I tried a little bit of everything and were not disappointed. The mixed drinks were a little different, not our personal favorites but to each his own. The view is hindered depending on where you are sitting (must be on the corner of the patio to see any type of... More

It was recommended by our dive instructor and it was just amazing food. Tucked in , we missed it on our earlier drives from Cane Bay. We ordered vege wrap, mahi mahi , caprese salad and some more items. The food was very very flavorful. A must visit place.

Head Chef and Owner CIA graduate and it shows in the food quality. We had dinner at a few different places on the island and this was top two for food. Service was inconsistent though. First visit for drinks and apps, the bartender was excellent. Second visit for dinner, service was subpar even for the islands. Stop by when not... More

You hate to even say the word "attitude" in evaluating a restaurant, because it is so imprecise. Yet, that is what my group came up with about Rowdy Joe's. Their food is really good, but it was a bummer to eat there because the wait staff was just awful. There were 11 of us, and to be fair the meals... More

Laid back casual atmosphere and BY FAR THE BEST blackened Mahi Fish tacos you will EVER eat!!! Other items on the menu are excellent as well. When they serve Prime Rib as a special its tender and juicy. Ice cold beer nice wine selection. DO NOT LEAVE without having their homemade ice cream. The best on the island. We have... More

A group of 3 of us went here for a late night dinner. Our waitress came took our order but then got wrapped up with another table and never put our order in. A different server came and took our order again. He was much better and made sure we had everything we needed. I had the fish tacos and... More

We must have dined on a bad day. After being seated, it took over 20 minutes before our waitress introduced herself and asked for a drinks/apps order. This was only after I asked for someone to serve us. The food itself was incredible and I'd put it on a list for some of the best food on St Croix. Unfortunately,... More

Pretty OK food, I wouldn't say it is out of this world-just decent. The place was sorta crowded however the service was probably the WORST I have ever had. I live in the Virgin Islands so I am not "jaded" by the "local flavor"...I think tourists think this place is "novel". So if you live close by you would find... More
