We stopped here on our way back from snorkeling at Salt Pond. Food was delicious! Lobster roll, nachos, cocktails. All of them were great. It's a bit out of the way, but why not see more of the island and have a great lunch!

LOVED the Tourist Trap! Ate lunch there on the way to Salt Pond. Nothing fancy! Outdoors! A slice of island life. The bananaquits/sugar birds entertained us. Enjoyed a lobstah roll (market price) and a Boom-Boom. And a home made chocolate bar for dessert. Mmmm….

This is a roadside place that has a short life span, as it is going away per the server , due to government issues. Too bad too because its a real treat! VERY casual but clean and really great frozen drinks along with marvelous lobster salad on a bun. SOOOO good. The waitresses were Mary and Sue and they did... More

We stopped here on our way to Lameshur Bay for lunch, the pork nachos were fantastic! My daughters had the beef nachos and loved those as well. Heard they are closing though and may not make it back before that happens. Highly recommend!
