“Best Food on the Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Rowdy Joe's has the best food on the island. It's not fancy, it's not expensive, but it was the freshest and most unique meal we had on our 2 week visit. The edamame was my spicy and delicious and we also tried a few of their specials. They aren't open all year so if you are going in the off-season make sure to get over their while they are open. I recommend bringing bug spray if you are going for dinner as there isn't as much of a breeze and we were eaten alive (it was worth it). The locals here are SO friendly and we ended up chatting with the table next to us the entire night. Great place!

“Have the Ice Cream as an app!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

I've been to Rowdy Joe's several times and love it each time I visit! This time I ordered the fish tacos. They are very good. The flavors are perfect, they're a little messy, but worth it. But, the highlight of this visit was the ice cream....Chocolate Malt! It had crispy chunks of light malt in the ice cream! I was in heaven!!! The bartender was very nice and made great drinks. The atmosphere is fun. The only negative was the hostess that sat us. She was so uptight.We just wanted to sit at the bar and she said, "there aren't any seats..and there are 10 people coming in for that table, 4 for that one etc." Instead of saying, "sure, first come, first serve at the bar!" Anyways, it didn't ruin our time. Go check it out!

“YES! Love.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Loved Rowdy Joe's! Their menu was unique, and we enjoyed sitting outside in the breeze. I had the cubano with fried polenta on the side. My husband had the fish tacos. Very, very good. Sadly we did not have ice cream. We were there for a late lunch, and our server said the ice cream wasn't ready yet. So sad because the flavors sounded so good! We went too late in our trip and with them being closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays, we had no more opportunities to get ice cream. I hope to return to STX and will definitely go back.
