I rarely rave about a place but cannot say enough good things about Rhumblines and its staff, especially Amanda the manager. We hosted a 125-person rehearsal dinner at Rhumblines in mid-November 2014. Amanda could not have been more helpful, not just with planning what turned out to be an incredible dinner but in helping us arrange other wedding activities. She was incredibly pleasant to work with, as were all the staff. On an island where people operate on 'island time', Amanda's responsiveness and professionalism was greatly appreciated.

Now, as for the dinner itself, they first had us in for a comprehensive tasting which was delicious. Could not have been more stuffed by the end. The food is asian fusion and it's exactly what you'd hope for - tasty and filling.

When the time came for the actual rehearsal dinner, the restaurant was laid out beautifully and the staff was well prepared. We bought out the restaurant for our group which we were worried would not fit everyone but it proved to be no problem. They served the food buffet-style, allowing for a more casual atmosphere. People raved about the dishes. They also set up a separate rum bar for a nice island touch. And we had their semi-regular singer Lauren in to provide entertainment (recommend!) Finally, the staff worked with us to provide a surprise for my (nearly-)wife whose birthday it was by having one of their staff members come out in a pink gorilla outfit and birthday cake. All went over very well. We stayed for an extra hour of open bar. While not the cheapest place on island, we found that the deal was very reasonable, especially when compared to other options.

Overall, this is just a cool place with cool people working there. It's a unique experience, walking through the convenient store to access the restaurant, with rope swing seats at the bar and other nice touches. Cannot recommend highly enough, especially if you are planning a special event.

Hilary & Scott really have a beautiful restaurant. Every thing was perfect. Their staff was so attentive, always checking if we needed anything. The food is phenomenal. The atmosphere is casual/laid back while still being beautiful. It really just made our night perfect. We can't wait to go back and visit and have some more of their wonderful food!

After intense scouting of all the restaurants in St. John, I selected Rhumblines for my rehearsal dinner (we got married at Caneel Bay). My mom and I tasted the food during our scouting trip, and the Mahi Mahi was the best we'd had in the islands--and that's saying a lot. We knew the food would be awesome based on that meal, and we were right.

Hilary, who handles the events, did a truly amazing job. She can be a little difficult to get a hold of for planning purposes, but my advice would be to just trust that she will take care of everything (this was hard for me because I'm such a micro-manager!). Hilary had tons of suggestions for how to arrange the party, and we relied on her advice, which was totally the right thing to do. We reserved the entire back space for our 45 guests (the area is open-air, surrounded by bamboo pagodas). The decor is exactly what you'd what in a tropical location--lots of blue and turquoise, palm trees, and tiki torches. My family loved the fact that instead of bar stools, Rhumblines has swings!

We had a grilling station, passed hors d'oeuvres, a rum tasting, entrees, and a dessert table with small goodies which we could take back to the resort to nibble on during the wedding day. We chose to do the cheaper option for meats (no steak or shellfish) because we had a lot of vegetarians, and honestly no one missed it at all. I ordered the salmon, and it was delish! People also raved about the mahi.

For music, we hired Lauren & Bo, a married singer-songwriter duo. Lauren has a gorgeous, Norah Jones-like voice, and they are totally willing to learn your favorite songs. Lauren even changed the lyrics in one song she learned for us, at my request.

We loved the whole night. If there were any problems, it was merely the fact that the night was so awesome it was almost better than our wedding reception!

The food was AMAZING! They allowed us to use the entire back part of the restaurant for the wedding party and they played our music over the restaurant speakers, so we were able to make the play list. They made beautiful menus for the event and allowed us to put a nice variety of excellent food for the guests. They set up a rum punch bowl so that people could help themselves, in addition to the open bar. Everyone loved the food so much that they came back the next night for dinner.
