And unfortunately just down the street "Above the Cliff" has closed for good. All the kitchen equipment was put up for sale this week.

So glad to hear they will be able to open. Now if they could only ship me a Bush Wacker to AZ.

Went there once. They weren't worth a second chance.

So excited about OTW! Will be there Sunday for one of those awesome Buschwackers!

I too am not going to miss Above the Cliff. Tried to eat or drink there 4 times without success. Finally decided not to go back. (I'm a little slow...)

I’ll fourth the sentiment about Above the Cliff. Three times there, three really bad experiences. And like baseball says...

I actually preferred the old Lobster Reef. At least then the food was good.

Does anyone know who owns the Above the Cliff property and building? Was the guy who had the restaurant leasing that location or did he buy it and is it now for sale?

Thanks

Owned by UIW SIU ST CROIX LABOR UNION REALTY CORPORATION and I don't think it's for sale. It's a very large tract, about 1000ft of ocean front.

I've enjoyed Off The Wall many times, mostly with visiting guests, but we don't really go there for the food per se.

I think stxsailer was referring to Above the Cliff not Off The Wall.

I never really liked Above The Cliff. It always had a weird vibe and the lack of ambiance made it feel unwelcoming.

Scotty owns all that corner including Rowdy Joes. He lives above Rowdy's.
Part of the reason they are closing is because of the repairs that are needed to the roof but not being done...I doubt he would sell it. But hey, everything has a price.

Above The. Cliff paid rent to Scotty Acoy just like the Lobster Reef used to. Scotty is a retired local that used to work for the tax assessors office.

Property records show Acoy owns the property Rowdy Joe's sits on, the vacant lot next to it to the North, and the larger rear property directly behind those which include's Rowdy's rear parking lot. But not the Above the Cliff property unless he owns the corp that owns it. The corp has a Maryland mailing address. Perhaps Scotty collects the rent for the corp.

Interestingly the parking lot on the side of Rowdy's building and the shed building across from it are on a separate parcel owned by the Smith family as is the actual small corner property, the small one next to that on Cane Bay Rd. and all the parcels along the western edge of the Above the Cliff driveway.

Yes Frank moved to Venice, Florida after the Lobster Reef closed. I drove him to the airport the day he left island. He lives close to his parents & one of his brothers.

Scotty Acoy kept substantially increasing his rent every year despiite Frank’s requests otherwise. So in 2010 Frank had had enough of Scotty’s crap & shut down restaurant end of October 2010.

Luggage. I'm glad he was doing well
