Great food Excellent service...sat at bar

Sometimes I wonder if I was in the same restaurant as some of the reviews that I read on TripAdvisor. Can things really change that drastically from customer to customer? My answer is this...maybe it's YOU and YOUR attitude. I just returned from St. John and couldn't be happier that I found... read more

Entering through a small convenience store adds to the magical atmosphere. You step into a bohemian tropical oasis. Swings at the bat, colorful pillows, a terns and tiki torches, give a relaxed tropical feel. The specialty drink list is different from many on the island with champagne being the ingredient of choice. The pad Thai was highly recommended. We ordered... More

Waited literally an hour for our appetizers, which never came, as they simply served our entrees. Waitress was completely unapologetic simply blamed the kitchen. They never checked on us for drinks or water etc...for an hour. Asked for the manager who comped us a round of drinks and dessert which we had to track down our waitress to receive. Huge... More

I rate the food as EXCELLENT, but I rate the wait staff as less thans average! The wait staff was VERY rude! I believe the heart behind the establishment is the delicious food, which is a shame. If the wait staff had more pleasant attitudes, I would rate the restaurant as excellent. I think they need a new server team!

I love Rhumb Lines. Amanda at the bar is charming and helpful. We opted to eat at the bar, next to the stool that was a swing, and had so much fun. You get there by cutting through a small bodega, but you walk into another world of subdued lighting, tropical plants, rubbed woods and charm. Try the Pad Thai.... More

every trip to St John we Must go to Rhumb Lines - make sure you have a reservation they tend to be full fast. The Pad Thai is awesome; the crab cake appetizer is to die for - can't say enough positive stuff about the food!

This is where we surprisingly had the best meal of our trip. We couldn't decide where to go on our last night and I brought up the restaurant past the mini-mart in Meada's Plaza. We went there pretty early as there were only 4 other tables that were occupied. We were seated with menus within a few minutes of arriving... More

This place hits every detail. Food is great, atmosphere is perfect, one man band was great, staff is friendly. It's hard to find a good place to eat in St. John. This place was by far the best on the island!

Great food, my personal favorite is the Pad Thai, a different spin on this classic dish. The dipping sauces and seasoning are yummy. A fun location , good service , nice vibe
