We had the most marvelous vacation on St. Croix until we met this "hostess" at Rowdy Joe's. We tried getting in there 4 times. It was a very busy place so we figured something had to be good there even though the woman who greeted us was rude. They don't take reservations however the last evening we were there we... More

Rowdy Joes comes highly recommended by anyone you speak with. We stopped by without a reservation and although it was super busy we were seated right away. We had the baked Brie which was so good. For our main course we both ordered the blackened mahi tacos. The seasoning was perfect! I loved my side of rice and beans! Since... More

St. Croix is full of excellent restaurants so spending a week here there would be no reason to repeat a location, as they are all good and you want to try everything. That being said we went to Rowdy Joe's three times in seven days. The first night we tried to get ice cream after 9:00 pm. This was not... More

Looks like a dingy dive bar, but had the best food we ate on the island. Everything was fantastic. I would definitely recommend eating here if you're in the area.

Delicious drinks. Interesting appetizers (lamb empanadas, smoked macaroni and cheese). Blackened shrimp tacos were amazing!! Homemade ice cream for dessert. Price is good. Try this place, you won't be disappointed!

Went here three times during our visit to St Croix. We had both lunch and dinner and all of our meals were great. Very creative menu and we loved the savory cheesecake appetizer. Excellent service too. Saturday night they had musicians who were excellent.

You wouldn't think that a place named Rowdy Joe's would be a foodiee's delight but it was. Really enjoyed our meals and we heard from the locals that the homemade ice cream is to die for, but we were way too full to indule !

We had lunch here and it was my favorite restaurant on the island. I had a turkey sandwich that was just amazing. Tried polenta for the first time here. It was fried and covered in marinara. Delicious!
