Look, it's a dive bar, but a fabulous t-shirt!

Great t-shirts on the walls. Fabulous drink specials. Mediocre food, but it's a dive bar, what did you want? The name and graphics on the souvenirs are what you came for, admit it.

We went to happy hour one evening without a plan for dinner and ended up at Woody's. This was not our best decision. We sat at a table right outside the doorway to the place. The place was very busy. The owner also owns Across the Street which is on the other side of the road. I ordered a burger... More

My husband and I spent 5 nights on St. John, and Woody's was always packed. On our last night we had to check it out. We did take-out as the restaurant is pretty small, the food was delicious and soooo inexpensive. After paying a ton for other meals, this was a breath of fresh air. The conch fritters weren't my...

Woody's is a must visit while on St. John. This year the service nor the food was as good as it has been in the past. I still recommend for happy hour and a fun crowd.

We stopped in for lunch thinking we were going to get fresh seafood. It was not fresh, was overcooked, and the lettuce was so bad I didn't even eat it. They did have some great deals on drinks for happy hour and it looked like a fun party place for the evening, just not a great place to dine.

Went for lunch on a trip with my mom, it's very dive-y but has great food (I had the seafood fritters), a friendly casual atmosphere and the best Bushwackers on the island. (We must've tried them at least 4-5 other places, Cruz Bay Landing's would have to be in the #2 spot.) Highly recommended!

A few years ago the original owners cashed out of this place and it hasn't been the same since. (One of them opened up Cruz Bay Landing at the former location of JJ's and it is great). Still a decent happy hour and a lot of crowds and happy folks but somehow it's just not the same. Maybe it's just... More

Loved the Island vibe...also love the beer prices! Burgers are the best and remember...don't stand in the street!

stopped in for a cold one during happy hour, could not beat the price for a $1 cold beer, but as we sat at the bar a cockroach ran across, I know a lot of restaurants have them but having one run right in front of me made us leave quickly.
