BJ’s Backyard

BJ’s Back Yard is one of those little hole in the wall places where the locals gather for a cold beer or two and to meet both old and new friends.

What brings them back day after day and week after week is the food, cold local beers and the fellowship.  Known far and wide by the islands expat community, people gather here to here on fridays to listen the the house band, The Banditos. Inside the “joint” you will find a book exchange and a couple of fixtures, Carmen and BJ herself.

I don’t have skills but I have a pretty good life. – Carmen

Recently, BJ’s daughter Tracy has taken on some of the management and a new chief has been hired, raising the food bar higher with new dishes and flavors.

Located in Oakridge and easy to reach by car or water taxi there is no reason not to make it BJ’s Backyard for fun, food and friends.

For those of you renting or owning a place with water access only, BJ’s also has car parking and marina space available.
