There are many choices for anyone who wants seafood! It seems this place doesn't do a lot of advertising, but they have impressive seafood. The servers are prompt and they are friendly. The person in charge of the menu does really well putting their entrees together. Their portions are large and you get plenty to eat. I do have to... More

Recently ate here with 7 other women...all a little picky in one way or another. This restaurant was very accommodating with separate checks and a change of entree at the last minute. The wahoo in lobster sauce was delicious!! The owner stopped by our table and said it took 2 days to make the sauce I can believe it...felt like... More

Just tried for first time. Was great to meet the owner Aaron and bartender carter. We had a great meal and were treated so nicely even though we were the last customers in for the evening! Most other places would make you feel rushed. So many specials I need to go back and try! Girfriend liked the Cesar salad a... More

The food was very good. Chowder was excellent. Conch fritters were good. Wedge salad was fabulous. The fish and chips were good but not great. The French fries were really good. Service was very friendly and attentive!! Service and ambiance was the high point. Recommend for a nice meal.

Don't let the look of this restaurant scare you away. It's a little on the edge of the main drag, but the food is amazingly good. Creative specials keep the menu fresh every night. The jambalaya was really good, as was the blacked snapper! But I would even enjoy just eating the chowder and the island rice. Prices are fair,... More

This is not a fancy restaurant but the food was surprisingly creative (Wahoo in a lobster pepper sauce for example). Good appetizers. Nice portions. Friendly waitstaff. And reasonably priced compared to some of the finer dining in Cruz Bay. Give it try.

Casual atmosphere & decor. Varied menu with good selection of daily fish specials. My wife & her sister each had blackened mahi mahi. Both said it was very good. I had sautéed snapper which was cooked with a flavorful sauce w/mushrooms, kalamatra olives, tomatoes with a side of mixed veggies and shrimp risotto. Outstanding!!

Delicious and creative menu. Everything was fresh and tasty. Convenient Cruz Bay location but away from the noisy overcrowded area. Friendly caring service.

We had a group of six and everyone loved their dish. Great use of sauces & spices. The wahoo with lobster sauce was outstanding. The ginger stir fry salmon was also wonderful. A family operation, fish trap is an excellent dining experience.
