First impression when you drive up to this place is "beer joint with fried food." After you try the fish tacos and fried edamame, you'll think "beer joint with fried edamame and some of the best food on St. Croix." Oh, almost forgot- they have homemade ice cream too!

This restaurant has great service from the waitstaff. The food is generally good to great, but is a little pricey for what you get. However, the homemade ice cream is a must. My only complaint is that they do not separate bills and since our group is expanding other options for North Shore dining may be more appropriate. There is... More

This is by far the best place to eat on the island. The combination of flavors and textures was amazing. Our server, Alex, was awesome and genuinely interested in whether or not we enjoyed our food. The bread pudding is delicious, but the ice cream is unbelievable. The entrees are well priced with good proportions. They were delicious. They pork... More

My wife and I ate dinner here tonight. They have a variety of food options. It's definitely what I would call a whole in the wall which to me is a compliment. You will not get an ocean view here but from our experience at least so far the places that offer ocean view you can only find overpriced pub... More

We loved Rowdy Joe's so much, we ate there twice during our stay! It doesn't look like much from the outside and is lacking in the ocean view department but the food is creative, fresh and a great value for the price. We loved the fish tacos and caprese salad. They also have daily specials that we enjoyed on our... More

I love hanging at Rowdy Joe's! My family and I frequent the restaurant, enjoying any and every thing off the menu. My fave side dish is the Asian Noodles. Fave app has got to be the Panko Fried Brie. The service is super fast and attentive! Spencer is an amazing bartender and server (my fave)... I've experienced dining here with... More

We ate at Rowdy Joe's multiple times during our week on St. Croix. It quickly became our go-to spot when we couldn't think of anywhere else to go. We enjoyed the casual atmosphere and felt comfortable stopping in to eat regardless of the time of day and what we were wearing. The menu was diverse and always had interesting items... More

We visited this restaurant with some of our local friends. We had heard good things about their food, but were always a bit curious because of the unassuming exterior. We were impressed! Everyone enjoyed their meals! Everything was very fresh and tasty. My husband liked the edamame appetizer so much, that he immediately tried to recreate the sauce once we... More

Spencer our server/bartender/all around gracious host made us feel welcome from our first visit to the next. We enjoyed a World Cup match together and he gave us several spirited recommendations for some other hotspots to try on the island. Meanwhile we greatly enjoyed our coconut pork empanadas, fish tacos, cubano and rice and beans followed by the homemade ice... More
