Great food and fun view!

Had a great casual dinner the last night of our vacation. I had the Mac-n-pork which was out of this world! The macaroni and cheese is Kellie's (owner) grandmothers recipe and I can't stop thinking about it! My husband had a platter (with a side of the mac!) and lived his. The Owners Kellie and... read more

Great BBQ joint with amazing view of Cruz Bay. Everything we had from the pulled pork to the brisket was done right on the money.

We stopped in for dinner after a day over in the BVI since it is very close to the national park dock. Things we liked: the pulled pork sandwich (with a fresh baked bun), the ribs, hot dogs and chicken. Their homemade sauce was very good. Things to do while you're there: play pool, listen to music (they played a... More

Stopped in for early dinner one night. We actually wanted to stop last summer and just ran out of time. Eric and Kellie (owners) were there and they were so pleasant! Not only was the food delicious, (including Kellie's grandmother's Mac N' Cheese recipe), but it was reasonably priced for food on island and the portions were on the larger... More

This is a very, very relaxed bar/restaurant. The BBQ, smoked chicken, pulled BBQ sandwiches are delicious. The one night we were there it was all yo can eat and the other night we were there they had great live entertainment. It's a little warm (no air) but they have a very casual deck that looks over Cruz Bay. It's a... More

Had a nice lunch with my two daughter here when on vacation in the US Virgin Islands. Took a little bit longer then I liked to be serviced our meals. Something about a boat with supplies just getting in? But it was worth it in the end. We all enjoyed everything we ordered, and the service was very good. Has... More

As soon as I walked through the swinging doors I knew I'd like the place. The staff was friendly and the BBQ was good and a good portion of it too. It was $20 for this portion but everything on St. John is expensive everywhere you go. Just know that. Oh I don't recommend the drinks here they were in... More

This was a nice change of pace, especially because we were in the midst of the 4th of July/Carnival Celebration. Best ribs I've had - hands down. You need to visit this place, and when you do...find Erin!!!!
