“Good People, Great Service and Food, and No Worries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We have visited St Croix three times, the last two since this place opened up. Nothing pretentious about it or the people. It's laid back, super-friendly, and ridiculously good food. There is nothing, and I mean nothing, that I can't say is super-good. The beer is cold, the atmosphere is totally chill, the staff and owners are extremely friendly, and you are making a grave mistakeif you don't leave room for their bread pudding and homemade ice cream (and this is from someone who doesn't order desserts normally). That bread pudding is insane!

“My favorite St. Croix restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Reasonable prices for absolutely awesome food. The fish tacos were so good I ordered them
twice in one week. The polenta with Marinara was fantastic. My mouth is watering just thinking
about it. Laid back but visually pleasing and comfortable atmosphere. Perfect!
The service was also the best I experienced on St. Croix. Waiters/waitresses were attentive
and helpful, not overbearing or snobby.

“Unique menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

During our 2 week stay on St. Croix my wife and I ate twice at Rowdie Joes, even though we were staying on the west end. Worth the drive. This is a quiet, laid-back bar/restaurant with a very unique menu and the best ice cream I ever had. The fish tacos were great and the 2 large tacos were plenty with the bean salad. The second time I had the appetizer--Bleu Cheese cheese cake salad---that's right---and it was delicious. Both times my wife had the Cubano pork sandwich. The polenta with marinara sauce side was her favorite. This is a great and fun place to eat.

“You have to try the bread pudding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

We have been come here since their inception and the food has just gotten better. The fish tacos are the best on the island and the spicy margaritas are a must not miss. But if you order or try one thing PLEASE make it the bread pudding - it is to die for!!!
