We were excited to return to Woody's after a 15 year leave of absence. Woody's has lost a lot of it's charm. The bushwacker I've waited all these years for was still good, but not as memorable as the one I had with Hershey's syrup drizzled down the sides 15 years ago. The chickens running loose in the restaurant also... More

Woody's is a must go for anyone wanting great food, cold/tasty drinks, people watching, and to experience the local St. John feel. It is right on the main drag of Cruz Bay and is one of the local hangouts. There are only a few tables outside and inside so you have to time it right if you want to sit... More

How can one NOT love Woodys ? My wife and I were regulars during our 2 week stay on St. John, in May of 2014, for Happy Hour (s)..................The friendliest staff in all of Cruz Bay. Woodys is a place where everyone seems to congregate at one point, or another. Great drinks, great pub food, and the BEST people watching... More

Started with two drinks (much too sweet for our liking) and then ordered the shark bites. (Blacked fish bites served with cocktail sauce.) We asked for a side of tartar and it seemed to suit the fish much better. Very tasty! We decided to share one of their famous platters. The blackened mahi was the best thing on the plate....... More

We recommend this place for the outstanding drinks and some of it's food. We went on two separate occasions and both did not disappoint. The people watching in this location is fun. Have the blackened shark bites.

With dollar drinks and bottled beer during happy hour, the place is hard to beat. Great atmosphere, eclectic mix of people, great service at the bar, are its pluses. The only complaint here is that the shark bites are actually blackened mahi and they were out of an ingredient for the drunken seafood.( out of season but told at first... More

Woody's is a cool burger/bar place to hit before or after the beach. We have been here several times and have never been disappointed. The breaded shrimp and the blackened fish sandwich are wonderful. Drinks are great and they have cool t-shirts for souvenirs.

The food was really, really good if you like it spicy. Their conch fritters were the best we had on any of the islands we visited (not spicy). Their Margaritas leave a lot to be desired. The only real issue I had personally was that it was really hot and the ceiling fans did little to help. Still, the food... More

Do we really need to say anything else. Staff is friendly and they create a fun atmosphere where meeting other people is a given. We were hammered on $10 :)

This place used to be known for its knowledgable bartenders and fun cocktails and laid back atmosphere. Now it seems that all you need to work here is a pretty face. The service did not come with a smile and we didn't even stay for the food after seeing how it looked coming out to other tables. I remember years... More
