Don’t be misled , this is not the restaurant you may have visited before. Trip Advisor has not updated the new ownership. Buyer beware

Good food but overpriced. No view, location not great. Tuna special was $35, good but seems like it should have been around $25. Yes we are on an island and it’s a restaurant but still needs to be worth the money.

Was on island for a couple weeks and ended up at Rowdys 5 or 6 times! Phenomenal sandwich menu, highly recommend the fish tacos and edamame. Even if you’re running solo, it’s a great place to stop in for a drink and a bite to...eat. Chances are you won’t leave without making a friend or two!More

Food was absolutely awful. If you love eating a gallon of salt this place is right for you. The waitress was beyond rude. After waiting 15 minutes for a drink menu, she dropped it off and asked “decisions” for food very rudely. I would not...recommend any one to eat here. I was just happy to leave when we were able to.More

Come Early, come often. This little roadside shack Is a surprising and delightful gem! We came here on our last evening in St. Croix (bad move) if we had it yo do over again, we would’ve come here on our first night on island and...have eaten here 3 times + over the course of the week. Bottom line—this is a restaurant owned by people who love food. The menu items are unique and deliciously made. Definitely get the Panko Fried Brie appetizer, and so many other things. My only regret is that I ate here the night before we left the island, and I wanted to try 3/4 of the things on the menu.More

I picked up my ribs & they fell apart. Wontons w/ the peanut butter sauce were delicious! Keep an eye out for their parking lot attendant, an orange tabby cat, when you pull in and leaving.

Ate it Rowdy Joe’s Northshore Eatery this past week. We had passed it multiple times when we’ve been out and about on the island and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The menu is so much more than beach bar food!...The fried edamame in a teriyaki sriracha sauce was delish as was the Asian beef salad! It was a fun place to eat and made for an enjoyable evening on St. Croix!More

My husband and I recently dined here and had a good experience. Seated promptly. Server/owner did a very good job. We had the empanada app that was excellent. We each got the burger special. Burger was very tasty, but I should have just gotten mine...the way I usually eat them as I pretty much like them simple. DH loved his. We had an apple crisp dessert that was delicious, warm, flaky and crispy. So good. 2 beers and a water tab only $67. Will definitely return on a future tripMore

Rowdy’s is located on the north side of the island. I had the chicken parmigiana with bow tie pasta. It was good but I expected more flavor. Portion size was great. Service was good as well. They played classic rock that was at the perfect...volume setting.More

We had a very nice meal at Rowdy Joe. Menu is interesting. We had everything that was part of the special that evening and we enjoyed everything from the shrimp penne to the amazing chocolate coconut bread pudding with warm caramel sauce. YUM!

YUCH! What a disappointment! I ordered the special, a New York Strip Steak, medium. It arrived dead raw. I sent it back and the medium that was returned was tough, loaded with fat, and tasteless. The waitress was a total slob. She plopped her butt...right on the table twice (I guess she couldn't handle the walk and needed to down her derrière ON THE TABLE!). Can you imagine if the diners who later sat in that section of that long table only knew that Momma's bum had literally been in their faces ten minutes earlier --- ewww! The waitress was totally graceless and not only dropped my dish on the table but also banged it against my guest's when she picked it up. I asked her if the Presidente beer was tasty and she said, "I can't stand beer so I don't know!" (Honey, you shouldn't be in the hospitality business if you're a graceless slob.) I forgot to mention that the entire restaurant was infested with flies. I spent half the time shooing the flies away, and that was outside. That means that there is a sanitation problem. Oh, and they don't take American Express. Do yourself a favor and avoid Rowdy [Sloppy] Joe's at all costs. The food and service is garbage. By the way, this was on Valentines Day, a day of lave. What a disappointment! Lastly, my guest could only eat a few bits of her meatloaf, which was equally tastelss. $74 for this garbage and you're expected to tip?More

We were driving around sightseeing on the island and came across this place. Stopped for a drink and returned for a meal. Nice selection and above average seafood for a small restaurant. Server was not too friendly but worth a stop.

We were concerned about finding this place when we decided to go her, but were thrilled when we did. Great service, very fresh food and daily fish dish. Drinks were also a treat. They are doing a great job overcoming the pandemic while still remaining...safe. Definitely one of the places to hit on your stay.More
