Best pad thai! And our cheapest dinner in St. John. Debated ordering to go for plane home

Rhumb Lines was amazing. Tucked away behind a little market, it's easy to miss it. It came highly recommended from several folks we met during our trip to St. John - and it didn't disappoint. We didn't have a reservation but we were able to walk-in and get two seats at the bar right away... read more

Had the Pistachio-crusted Goat Cheese as an app- very very good! Steak for dinner, also delicious. Our friend got the last lobster available - he said it was amazing.

Ate here on our last night of vacation and loved it! Food and service was fabulous. Great atmosphere. Odd getting into the restaurant as you walk thru a small grocery store, but you won't be disappointed. Would eat here again. Would recommend making a reservation, they get super busy (we were here on a Friday night).

My wife and I had dinner at Rhumb Lines while spending fours nights in St. John. The food was wonderful, the service outstanding. The place is a little bit difficult to find.

Everything from the pleasant wait staff through the succulent dessert was outstanding. The creativity in their menu is second to none on the island. There were five in our party and each of us had a different menu item. Everyone was more than pleased with their selection and we agreed as a group that this was the best meal that... More

First time was with family including our two grandchildren and adults and children alike loved the setting, service and food. The Asian orientation is like no other Asian restaurant we have been to and their indoor/outdoor setting makes it all the more enjoyable. The second time my wife and I sat at the bar and chatted with the bartender who... More

Every year we visit St. John, and have always dined at Rhumb Lines. So I'm not basing this on one visit, but this is our experience year after year. The chef is very good, and the food that comes out of his kitchen cannot be faulted. It can be a little spicy, but if you ask them to "tone it... More

The menu options were great and everything tasted just as good as it sounded. Drinks were delicious too. The service is also friendly and when we came back for a 2nd time a few nights later they even remembered us. Will definitely be back!

I treated my wife and I to yet another perfect evening at Rhumb Lines on Valentine's Day last month. Although we live in St. Thomas, we make the trip to St. John and invariably head straight for Rhumb Lines. The food is original and inventive but not in such a way as to be intimidating. While I usually order the... More

We dine at Rhumb Lines every time we visit Cruz Bay. The Ultimate Pad Thai is delicious(3 in our group ordered it)! Disappointed that the PuPu shrimp comes with 2 average sized shrimp. This experience wasn't our best: reservation was for 8:30pm, we got seated at 9:05pm, and our meals were served at 10:20!
