You CAN eat here, but there are only a couple tables and its not much to look at, but this is great for a carryout dinner or beach dining, especially if you have a family and don't want to cook at your condo.

Candi's BBQ is just on the edge of Cruz Bay. I was honestly unsure of it my first time because it looks like it's practically in a junk yard on the side of the road. I'm so glad we stopped here for some BBQ take...More

My husband and I shared the ribs and chicken. Finger licking good, and it felt nice to be able to support a locally run business. Fun crowd and also good for take-out.

After traveling all day to get to St John, getting our car, checking into condo, doing a little food shopping at Starfish, we wanted something fast. We didn't feel like sitting in a restaurant, so we went to Candi's. We ordered BBQ chicken, with rice...More
