“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We Have eaten here the last 3 times we've been in St. John. This is by far the best food and best service we've had. Ate there 2 nights in a row. Got ribs 1st night then the Combo (chicken and ribs) 2nd night. Service was good both times...it's a small place so be prepared to wait or order for take out . It's an outdoor shack so not fancy at all but if you are more concerned about the food than the location you will love it.

“Great Ribs in Cruz Bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Fantastic ribs and barbecue chicken in an outdoor setting. We enjoyed the delicious food while listening to music from across the street. Great place to have lunch and people-watch.

“Great BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

I enjoy the portions and easy access to town. There also is a place down the road towards Starfish called Candies with is equally good if not a little better!
