“AMAZING!!!”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

My mom and step-dad heard about Barefoot Cowboy earlier this year while they were in Barbados telling a fellow traveler they were headed to my wedding in St. John in July. He told them they MUST go to Barefoot Cowboy for real BBQ. We made an attempt in the early afternoon for lunch but soon learned we were about 3 hours early. So we decided to try again that evening and were so glad we did, The brisket was absolutely amazing. It literally melted in your mouth. The pork and chicken were also delicious. The beans, the coleslaw.....all legit! Our table also had the sliders and tacos which were YUMMY! And of course you MUST give the pineapple-jalapeno tequila a shot. This place was so awesome we went deep sea fishing, caught a Mackerel and immediately took it to Wayne to throw on the grill. He did not let us down. It literally fell off the bone. That night we also had the frito pie and nachos...and yes you guessed it...DELICIOUS! The live music was a great touch and of course we toasted our night with a good ol' PBR. And last but not least our service was fantastic both nights!

“BBQ Joint”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

If your craving BBQ food, head to this restaurant. The appetizers were good as well. Pain in the neck to use bathroom as you need to borrow large spoon key to use it.

“Best BBQ Sliders around”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Think you won't want to grab BBQ while down in the islands? Think again! The brisket sliders are worth having. Play a game of pool, relax and enjoy the fun of this bar. You'll be glad you did
