Candi’s Barbecue

Elvis Yearwood bought the Sticky Fingers BBQ can in Coral Bay and brought it to Cruz Bay, renaming it Candi's Barbecue for his wife. They serve classic barbecue and daily specials.


Candi’s Barbecue is a bar and grill where they proudly serve their take on Caribbean cuisine. Most guests consider the level of formality and service here to be very casual. This location serves food for both dinner and lunch, so make time to try it.
