We were told about the great fish tacos. They were OK, but the beer they served was warm, no excuse for that. sorry this isn't a better review and we haven't been back since.

Great venue with fresh and tasty food. Service efficient and friendly. Recommended for dinner (since I'd chose somewhere with better views for lunch!)

Made another trip to St Croix in February and made a point to hit Rowdys again. The food was still amazing and the staff friendly and attentive. The fish of the day is always a good choice and the spicy edamame are excellent. Home made ice cream for desert tops off a great meal. Give this place a try, you... More

Four of us ate here twice during our week on the island, and all of our meals were delicious. Service gracious and fast. As we sat, we saw the staff accommodate two large parties with no problem. Steaks, fish tacos, turkey and brie all delicious, and the live band was great (if a little loud on the patio)

This little dive is a favorite among locals. It doesn't look great on the inside but - oh boy what great food. The menu is reasonably priced but the food is equivalent of a fine dining experience. The Lamb Empanadas calamari fish and the special drinks make this a great place to check out into the land of Saint Croix.

I ate at Rowdy Joe's a couple of times and food was always delicious; local, fresh and healthy. And..... all the servers were super friendly. Food, drinks and entertainment is what its all about!

Had dinner with our family here and it lived up to the hype. Definitely worth going. Each of us had a different dish and no one went home disappointed. Would absolutely go back.

We had visited the ISLAND back in 2014 & LOVED going to Rowdy Joe's (several times!),but were a bit nervous to go BACK (thinking it might not STILL be as good or still meet our expectations)...We were happily NOT disappointed!!😊The owners have divorced,so there is no longer their VERY popular homemade icecream available...BUT that's the ONLY negative. STILL AVAILABLE...friendly servers... More

Very casual atmosphere. Dining outside you sit on wood benches and folding chairs. Very attentive staff. I enjoyed 1/2 rack of asian bbq ribs. It was very good!There was a mixed group of patrons. A couple of families. They have a hidden gem back in the kitchen. The chef is incredible! Their menu selections are fresh and innovative. What a... More
