I don't like Thai food but meal was the best

I had salmon with a fruit sauce on top that was so yummy. Kids had thai pad mixture of noodles and seafood and meats, everyone's meal was fantastic. Was recommended, I'd definitely go back.

Rhumb Lines is the best keep hidden secret in Cruz Bay. You actually have to walk through a mini mart to get to this restaurant. The food is tremendous. It is pricey but worth it.

This was such a fun place! The food was creative and absolutely delicious -- loved the plantains and mahi mahi especially. The decor inside the restaurant was very fun and made you feel like you'd entered another world. Would definitely go again!

After hear so much about Rhumb Lines Pad Thai, we tried it. We all were disappointed. My husband opted for the blackened scallops and couldn't eat them! They tasted like they were old. And to top it off, it was torrentially raining and there was about three inches of water that you had to walk through to get to the... More

Go with a big appetite – the dinner portions are huge! And don’t be put off walking through the convenience store to reach Rhumb Lines, a lovely outdoor setting that bills itself as “rustic elegance.” There’s comfortable covered seating with ceiling fans around an open-air courtyard where there are casual tables with umbrellas. The food tends to be hot and... More

Loved the atmosphere...great service as the staff is very informed about the menu / chef's creations. The Chef spent time in Asia and brought back some very unique recipes. Add this to your list of restaurants while on St. John.

Visited on the first night they reopened from a short break. Very good Thai food in a awesome atmosphere. Walking by on the street I would think 80 percent of people would miss the restaurant as you have to walk through a entry way that shares the space with a convenience store. However once in side it is a very... More

My husband and I dined here on the second night it reopened for the season on 10/22. It was very crowded but we were seated right at our reservation time. The pupu platter we ordered was delicious, many fun fried rolls and such with accompanying dipping sauces. The husband ordered the tuna appetizer since we had enjoyed a late lunch... More
