“Great Drinks, Bland Food”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Hubby and I decided to try this restaurant based on a local's recommendation. We made reservations and were promptly seated when we arrived at a table near the boardwalk. We both ordered drinks and we were not disappointed. That is where the excitement ends for our dining experience.

Drinks - I ordered the Tsunami and dear hubby ordered a Long Island. The drinks were the highlight of our meal.

Appetizer - We ordered the fried calamari with a local creole sauce. The batter was bland and the creole sauce tasted like canned tomatoes with a few additional seasonings.

Main Entree - I ordered the manchego crusted scallops with risotto. The risotto was bland, but the scallops were nicely seasoned. My hubby ordered the chicken Parmesan, which he thought had no flavor.

Overall - I would go for drinks, atmosphere, and the view of the harbor, but not for the food.

“Great Food/people/atmosphere”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Traveled to st.croix in Dec during holidays. Rum runners was one of our favorite hangs outs. Great daily special, good prices food and booze. we also enjoyed the alley galley as well as angry nates along the boardwalk. The bombay club was our favorite dinner place. I think we ate there 3 or 4 times in 15 days. Being from Canada we found all places very reasonable in pricing.

You can't beat those fish tacos and a cold drink after a morning of diving! the mahi tacos were meaty and hot in crispy corn tacos....really delicious! We had friendly quick service.
