“Great food, Great Music, Amazing Staff!”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

We have been visiting St. John for over a decade. The 'Barefoot Cowboy Lounge' is a welcome addition to the bar and food scene here. The food is reasonable, fresh, and DELICIOUS. The drinks are cold and cheap. The staff is friendly, fun, and attentive. The live music was WONDERFUL. Don't miss this spot when you travel to St. John - it is fun, unique, and just a great all-around vibe.

“All you can eat”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

Stopped in Thursday night for the $20 all you can eat. We started off with the $2 beers during happy hour while people watching. The Pit Boss was ready at 6.00 PM and we went over and got our food. The all you can eat this night had corn on the cob, beans, BBQ chicken,pulled pork, brisket and pork loin.The local wood they use adds a distinct flavor to the Q. Everything was cooked through and it was tender and moist. You can go back for more but there was no way we could! It is a lot more food than we expected. The service was friendly and attentive, we felt like a regular from the time we sat down. It is a very laid back place decorated with a Southwest flair. Walk around the backside of the lumber yard and you will find the entrance.Great for a laid back change of pace at a good price.

“$2 HH Beers”
Reviewed 7 February 2014

We stopped here our first night on the island for a few beers and their AYCE BBQ. Once we saw the menu we decided against the AYCE but I had the chicken with corn and beans for $14 and it was really good. My husband had brisket and pork with corn and coleslaw for $16. But best of all were the Bud and Bud Light bottles for $2. We each had a few beers and dinner and the bill was under $50 with tip. Our waitress was a sweet young girl that was from a town just 10 miles from our hometown. Funny how that happens. We highly recommend Barefoot Cowboy Lounge for very casual BBQ and Beers!
