“Good Bar B Q at a good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

We ordered the beef sliders to taste the brisket before ordering a plate of Bar B Q brisket and chicken. The chicken had a good flavor, but was a little dry. The beef brisket was good but not the best I have ever had. It was,however, one of the best buys in St. John where food costs about twice what it does back home. I did not care very much for the coleslaw, and the beans were good but nothing special. We were there a little before happy hour and there were not many people there. I would recommend it for good food with good atmosphere for a reasonable price.

“good chow and plenty of it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Food was great, even without doing the all you can eat meal. His plate was stacked high enough for 2 people to Chow on. It's a great place to meet new people and to enjoy ice clod $2 beers during happy hour.
Wayne's done an outstanding job with his Lounge, its our 3rd time back since he opened. Thanks for another great day at Cruz Bay Wayne Campbell we are looking forward to a Spring trip back to enjoy your great food, great location and great people. If your hungry and thursty this is the palce to go from 6pm on to CHOW, BOOZE, and to just enjoy people you enjoy meeting who are doing the same thing your doing on their trip to St.Johns Island

“Great food and fun”

We went to BCL for the all you can eat BBQ and to listen to Capt'n Stephen entertain us with some great live music. Food was great and we had an absolute blast!

“Great BBQ and live music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

The BBQ at the BCL is great! It's as good as any BBQ you will get in Texas. The all you can eat on Tuesdays and Thursdays is awesome. It's all you can eat ribs, brisket, chicken and sausage with corn on the cob, beans and coleslaw. And breakfast on Wednesday nights featuring chicken fried steak or chickens and eggs and biscuits was great as well. Several nights a week they offer live music and both of the artists were exceptionally good. It's a fun atmosphere.
