Description: The Barefoot Cowboy Lounge in Cruz Bay on the beautiful island of St. John...
The Barefoot Cowboy Lounge in Cruz Bay on the beautiful island of St. John in the USVI is servin' up some of the best "Texas Style" BBQ you'll ever eat! You'll be clamoring to "come getcha sum" once you've had our tasty fixins offered up from our Barefoot Daily Menu. We offer smoked brisket & pork, pulled pork, sausage & chicken. You can choose from the Outlaw, Cowboy Combo, Redneck Sandwich or the Barefoot Nachos just to name a few. The Hillbilly Sliders - you're gonna love Wayne's Frito Pie!

We stopped in for "all you can eat" rib night Bbq. It was fantastic food really more than we could eat on the first plate piled high with meat and good sides too. New owners are doing a great job. The ribs were worth the trip to St. John !!

Great family business. Pulled pork nachos are delicious! Nice music without being too loud. You should definitely put it on your list.

Each trip we have ended up here twice because once was just not enough. The restaurant is under new ownership and the family could not have been nicer. More importantly the food was amazing. My husband is a bit of a bbq guy and if he raves then you know its good. I'd list things to try, but really everything... More

Hungry, after excellent Reef Bay Hike and tour led by Ranger Alana Smith and Park Volunteer Joe, we just walked in to Barefoot Cowboy to see what it was like, maybe get a beer and some food with a breeze. We were greeted by Trey Marshall son of fellow co-owner Eric Barley who offered an Island Summer Ale (perfect for... More

When I think of beach food I don't immediately jump to barbecue, but this place ended up being one of our favorite meals on St. John, we ate here twice. The barbecue was delicious, and smoked in house. We had the nachos on our is first visit, and the three meat plate the next time. The barbecue was smoky, savory... More

Barefoot Cowboy lounge is a good place to grab a beer and some bbq. It has a nice view to watch all that is going on the street below. The service was very friendly and the pulled pork sliders were very tasty.

We stopped in this place on a recent vacation to St. John. We were very excited about some southern BBQ in paradise! We have some really great BBQ at home but had never tried Texas BBQ. Loved the concept and name of the place.. As we walked in, we noted that we were literally the only customers in the place,... More
