Thye Beach Bar’s been for sale since last fall. The Iguana said so. Now the deal is done. Given that it’s been on the market that the place is changing hands is not too surprising.
What IS surprising is the word that Woody’s has also been purchased.
There is no word on who the buyers are.
Why the sales? One commenter on TripAdvisor wondered if the places weren’t making money. A frequent visitor to the island replied, “If those 2 places aren't profitable, no place on STJ is.”
Magee4475 in Cruz Bay posted on TA, “Woody's will continue to operate and the new ownership has vowed to keep the same Woody's spirit. Dan (long-time Woody's chef) and Mike (manager) will continue to work there as well.”
It could be the owners of Woody’s are simply looking to do something else. “I've heard rumors of a new restaurant by the now former Woody's owners,” said Mountain2Sea.
