“Dropped in for some Nachos and drinks”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

The food was good but the place could use some attention...and the owner wasn't very friendly...the bartender was awesome though. The view from the bar is the downtown of Cruz Bay .... which is loud and has lots of traffic.

Reviewed March 22, 2013

Good food fun bartender when we were there. Nice environment low key quick service. Has cover for sun and rain or you can be outside. Close to ferry and transportation area. BBQ food was great. Pina Coladas were big and very cold.

“Amazing BBQ & Mellow Place”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We went here for lunch yesterday and had the MOST amazing smoked corned beef sliders for St. Patrick's Day. The atmosphere was awesome and mellow with plenty of seating and a great view. The service was friendly and prices the best deal here! We loved it so much we went back today for more along with some frito pie :)

“Great bbq, music, and casual atmosphere”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

The food was fresh and very tasty. The nachos are the best ever! Try the pineapple and jalapeno margarita, too. It has a kick, and is real good for something out of the ordinary. The music was fun, too! Great service with a smile!
