Our friends took us here for my birthday, and what a treat! They recommended that we sit outside here, and that it was worth the wait. I could see that the inside could be loud. But wow, was the food good! Amazing menu; it took me a long time to decide. I ended up with a bleu cheese

Very good, interesting menu. Ginger and pork wontons were great. The turkey sandwich has real turkey, not deli turkey. You won't find breathtaking views, but the homemade ice cream makes up for that and more.

Our server, Alex, really made our experience. And although the staff helps to make a restaurant experience great, the food also spoke for itself. I have lived on STX for three years, and have had nothing quite like RJ's food anywhere. The environment is spot on for a low key dining experience, and the staff make you feel welcome. Highly...

I went here with two friends for dinner and it was great. I had the fish tacos by recommendation from our server. The tacos, cucumber salad, and sangria were all great! Highly recommend!

Was recommended by local dive shop to travel up north by Cane Bay area for their tacos. Have been disappointed many times before, but you will get your fill of fresh fish here. Not over powered by sauces or other fillers, just fish on a flour tortilla. This day it was blacken mahi mahi. Wish we had heard of Rowdy's... More

I've been to Rowdy Joe's 4 or 5 times now. The food is always great! The Edamame is delicious. They have homemade ice cream for dessert. Great atmosphere with indoor and outdoor dining options. No view of the water here. While I have enjoyed my food and experience here every time it did not "blow me away" so that's why... More

We just stopped in for the ice cream, having eaten somewhere else. It was great! The apple cinnamon tasted just like Mom's best Thanksgiving apple pie and the Funky Munky was creamy delicious! Can't wait to go back for dinner!

This place is one of the only places open late in St. Croix, so if you want to listen to live music and eat, this is your place. They are open until midnight and serve food until 9. Try it, you won't be sorry.

After a hair-raising ride along I-80, Rowdy Joes sits so unassuming that you might breeze past it if you didn't know it was there. And, that would be a shame because the eclectic menu which changes nightly and is posted on a blackboard is worthy of applause. However, whatever you order make sure you leave room for dessert. The homemade... More
