Description: Due to Hurricanes Irma and Maria, the building was severely damaged. As of January 2018 there is no sign the Landlord of the Lumberyard is going to rebuild in the short term. Therefore, for now, there is no more Barefoot Cowboy. Should our situation change we will update our information. Thank you to everyone that visited us and took the time to write a review. Barefoot Cowboy in Cruz Bay on the beautiful island of St. John in the USVI serves fresh cooked Texas BBQ. Smoked brisket is our specialty. We also offer ribs, chicken and pulled pork. Our sauces are made in house and all our sides are made from scratch. We are open from everyday from noon until we sell out !

Loved this place. They cook brisket, pulled pork and pulled chicken. You can put it on buns, tortillas or stick it on nachos or in a frito pie. That's about it... and it's great stuff. You want a burger, conch salad, calamari or any of the other stuff you can get at about 1,000 other places in the Virgin Islands.... go somewhere else b/c they don't have it.

Great atmosphere. Great location. They do have beer thank god... and probably other liquor but never asked.

For a great evening of cold beers, awesome bbq beef and pork sliders, and outstanding entertainment, the Barefoot Cowboy Lounge on the second floor of the Lumberyard overlooking the Customs Dock is a great way to end the day on the island. Holly just seems to sense when you need another cold one and Wayne makes your mouth water with the smells of his bbq just steps away. Wayne Campbell always has some island entertainment on board and Stephen Sloan and his singing dog Jake are always a great deal. Very inexpensive and always a good time!

We just got back from spending 10 days in STJ. Out of 10 days on the rock we ate at the BFC at least 5 times. I really liked the pulled pork nachos and my wife loved the spicy margaritas. The Barefoot Cowboy has good inexpensive food and drinks and is a great place for people watching. Can't wait to go back. Thanks again Wayne!

First time at this great little bar and smoke house. Fantastic guys! Made us feel right at home after a day at Maho. They told us that the nachos were the best on the island, and they were right. Maybe the best I've ever had... Fantastic!!! A must order. Great view, friendly staff, fantastic food!!!!

We had been on a sail earlier that on bad kitty. On the way back to our condo decided to hit bcl. The BBQ was great-the folks there were very friendly, and service great. The beers were cold while we enjoyed the awesome view. The megaphone was a hit and a hoot!! Definitely be back on this years trip to st.john
