Great BBQ for a decent price!

As of today, I have been to Candi's twice in less than a week. It was the first stop for food once my husband and I got settled in at the place we're staying. I asked him what he's in the mood for and he mentioned something that won't take too long and simple. I suggested Candi's BBQ and we... read more

Got the bbq chicken and it was so tender and tasty. The Sauce was really good. Best bbq chicken I've had in a while! Highly recommend it if you're in the mood for some good ol comfort food

It wouldn't be a real St. Patrick's Day celebration in Cruz Bay without BBQ at Candi's after the parade. It's hard to choose between the chicken I or risoI get the combo and then the choice etween sid begins. The plantains are so flavorful, her pasta salad is yummy as is the coleslaw, rice with peas, etc. Cold beer goes... More

Went to town knowing there were a couple highly recommended BBQ joints. Saw Uncle Joe's but they were out of ribs. We decided to find Candies. It felt far away (but really not) from CB and is just a roadside joint. Put your tables together. No Pomp here. Order at the counter. Food took awhile but worth it. It's the... More

This is where the locals eat. Candi runs a friendly little place - a small roadside shack with some delicious ribs and chicken for a fair price. I would definitely go back. Cold beers, decent food, and happy people.

Candi's is good for take out barbecue, but be careful what you order. On our first visit to Candi's all four of us ordered ribs with rice & peas and either cole slaw or corn on the cob. The ribs and the rice and peas were outstanding, and the portions were huge, leaving enough for a light lunch the next... More

Best BBQ on the Island and servings are extremely large. Always leftovers for next day. After a day at the beach this is great take home.

With out a doubt, Candi's is the best place to blow 20 bucks on St. John if you're hungry. That 20 gets you a plate of bbq and a couple of rum & cokes that you will surely be telling the folks back home about. Candi has her own secret recipe for bbq thus her slogan; "Home of the Comeback... More

We really enjoyed our barbecue chicken and ribs. Candi goes out of her way to make a quality home made barbecue. She is always helpful and friendly. Excellent value!

So this is not one of my best meals ever as the question indicated only because I've had a lot of good meals and unfortunately this does not qualify as the top 3. However, this being said, we were looking for dinner and not necessarily BBQ but Amanda at St. John's Inn highly recommended this place. Well, that and we... More
