StX Restaurant Ratings
is no bones still open
It is. Had lunch there yesterday. Their fried chicken special (every Friday) is THE best fried chicken on the islands, hands down.
Just returned from STX and two restaurants stand out.
Rowdy Joe's- The fish tacos are still consistently outstanding. Also, the meatloaf mixed with sausage was very moist, tender and tasty.
Waves at Cane Bay- The wife wanted lobster Benedict for brunch yesterday so we headed for Waves. They had it as a special. The eggs were poached to perfection and there was plenty of fresh lobster. Carl was our waiter and he was crazy fun. He kept pushing tequila shots when seating guests. I finally had to ask him why he was pushing tequila. He confessed that he had over ordered and had to reduce his stock. So, I helped him out by ordering an after brunch shot. He joined me in downing shots together.
Carl always must "overorder" Tequilla then...he's always pushing Tequilla shots. It's part of what makes Carl Carl!
Sean, you are on the money. Whenever we go to brunch @ The Waves, Carl always asks everyone if they want a shot of Tequilla. Actually he prefers Heineken but he's always pushing the Tequilla shots.
Eat @ Cane Bay, very good seared tuna sandwich, my SO had a cheeseburger also very good, it was busy with the brunch crowd but the service was good and the rum punch excellent .....3.75 stars as they were out of a lot of things
Duggun's, lobster parmasien, lobster spring rolls excellent, shashimi ok. and the grilled mahi ok, service was very good, rum punch was very good ......4 stars. They have half portion entres
Just came back from lunch at The Golden Rail. So disappointed in the food and service. We split the Reuben, i think they forgot how to fix them. Was hardly warm and was not at all grilled. The service was really not good at all. Maybe she was a new server?? But really not good. She was nice when she actually came to the table. Never once came by to check on us. With the right training she could be a good server. Will not go back.
We went for lunch sandwiches at Blue Water Terrace yesterday. I have to come on here and recommend Pauli's Panini - layers of fresh cut Italian meats, provolone cheese, roasted red peppers, balsamic vinegar panini toasted on fresh bread. Amazing - best I've had since I left NYC.
My BF had a ham sandwich with lots of other goodies on it that was absolutely huge, on fresh bread (they make it all), and he ate every bite.
Also got to meet Lacey, our waitress - she's been around on island a while so I'm sure some of you know her already. 🙂 She was awesome, a lot of fun, and we'll be back soon!
Recently, I've eaten at:
Blue Water for dinner. EXCELLENT. Every single thing was incredible. 10/10
Golden Rail for lunch. EXCELLENT. I had baked chicken with mashed & veggies for only $12. It was scrumptious. 10/10
Golden Rail for lunch. AVERAGE. Unlike my previous lunch, this time it wasn't as good. Still, I'll def be back. 6/10
Avacado Pit for lunch. POOR. My tuna steak sandwich was dry as a bone, with no flavor. And, the guy behind the counter would not shut up and was on the phone with WAPA the entire time. Not fun to listen to someone bicker on the phone for 40 minutes. 3/10
Dashi for lunch. GOOD. Excellent food as always, but man oh man have their prices risen lately. Very expensive now. 8/10
No Bones for lunch. EXCELLENT. Good food, great service as always. This is one of the most consistent places around. 9/10
Bombay Club for lunch. GOOD. Good food as always, but holy crap it is FREEZING in there. I was literally shivering towards the end. 8/10
Eat At Cane Bay for lunch multiple times. EXCELLENT. Great service and the best salads on-island, hands down. Sitting at the bar on a Saturday never disappoints. 10/10
Breezes for lunch multiple times. GOOD Tasty, cheap food as always. Service a bit slow as usual. Always been a fave lunch spot. 8/10
The Deep End for lunch: AVERAGE/GOOD One of the prettiest bars on the entire island. Great service as usual. But the food... it's sometimes good, often times just average. 7/10
Topside for dinner. EXCELLENT The British guys that run the place are a hoot! Very friendly. Their menu is HUGE and their prices are very reasonable. I had their fish and chips and they were amazing. They make em English-style, using cold cod rather than a local fish like Mahi Mahi. They told me that their fish and chips are just like found in England and I believe 'em. Brits know their fish and chips. 10/10
Domino Club for lunch EXCELLENT as always. We went for Burger day. I've never had anything from Norma I didn't like. And, of course, there is Norma herself, a breath of fresh air on any given day. 10/10
