Lunch

Great pulled pork and brisket. Homemade Mac and cheese was also good. Brisket Sandwich pulled pork sandwich and 4 drinks ends up being around 50$ but well worth it!!!

We own property on St. Johns and make sure to stop here at least once every time we visit. Recently, it switched owners and the food is now better than before - which I did not know was possible. It has a great county bar feel, and for a cowgirl like me it feels so much like a slice of... More

My husband and I are here in Cruz Bay for our honeymoon and stumbled upon this restaurant. Tuesdays and Thursdays they do all-you-can-eat BBQ for $20 which is a great deal for St John. We had brisket, pork, chicken, green beans, baked beans, bread and slaw. They also have a full menu of other great things. We're from CA so... More

Chips and salsa....homemade and YUMMY!! I had the mac and cheese, a family recipe, I thought it was so incredibly good...the owner said it wasn't a good batch...I stated that if that was a bad batch, I can't imaging how good a good batch tastes.

Great food and service!! The $20 all you can eat is a steal of you go on a Tuesday or Thursday when they have that deal. The live music was great and very interactive for all of our young kids. The servers got everything right even with us being such a huge group. My favorite part was the view though!... More

Our family of 21 stopped in for dinner. The service and the atmosphere were fantastic! Our little girls even got to help with the live music. The whole family had a great time. Food and service was fantastic for a group our size

All sorts of choices for dining in Cruz Bay, and I think this one is definitely worth a try. Food was very good, prices reasonable, and service excellent. Not fancy, just straightforward good value and experience for the money. Very nice owners.

We ate at Barefoot Cowboy on our trip last week to STJ. I have to say that one of the best meals I had was the Cowboy Combo...great food, cold drinks and impeccable personal service!

Food was good and happy hour was great. We stopped in a couple of times during our week on the island and, for the most part, we were the only ones there. We visited last year and there seemed to be more of a vibe going on - I can't really put my finger on i.

So glad y'all enjoyed the food. May is super dead on island and depending on the dates of your visit we were slammed for the country music fest leaving everyone on island partied out. We've just taken over and we are still building things back up with lots of events to come. Hope you come back and see what's new... More
