Great staff, drinks and food!

Trey, our charming bartended, took care of my entire party. The atmosphere is very laid back and pool is free and the burgers are amazing! I will definitely be coming back on my next visit!

Had to check this place out after reading all the reviews and recommendations about their "famous nachos"....could hardly get waited on while they were not busy. Then were told they were out of chips...needless to say, no nachos. :( Sad and left hungry.

After sailing all day w Sail Safaris, met up with our captain and mate at this barbeque joint. Great Carolina-style meats, good sides, and very friendly staff. Highly recommended!

I first need to say that my family is from Central Texas and we are VERY picky about BBQ. We found this place by searching on Trip Advisor for a good place to eat on Saint John.

We have been going here on our trip to the Virgin Island for the last few years. The place seems to be getting old. We hit it this time for happy hour and the prices were very inexpensive.

Trey, was a great host, beers were flowing and food was awesome. BBQ sauce was excellent, my man is from the deep south. Best kept secret in St. John. Just show up and enjoy!

This is right off the main road with great view and food. Ribs, chicken and awesome sides. Small interior but very family friendly. A good change of pace to people watch, chill and casually relax.
