This was our first time on the island. We stopped by on our way from Salt Pond Bay. Mary was such a delightful hostess/waitress. She made us feel so welcome, helping us to decide which foods to order. We had the BBQ nachos, lobster roll, and fish taco. All were so yummy. I especially enjoyed the fresh taste of the... More

Excellent food, warm and friendly service. Large portions - you are paying a lot for food on the island no matter where you go, so don't be put off by paying $15 for lunch - you get filled up on fresh, local food and it's well worth it! There isn't a lot of seating, so be prepared to possibly wait... More

We have stopped at The Tourist Trap several times now. Mary is always there when we go! Very friendly, tasty drinks and great food! Everything is outdoors so don't expect anything fancy, just good food and nice people!

We were staying at the Concordia so we had to stop by for lunch one day. Great casual and funky atmosphere with numerous memorabilia and eye-catching decorations. My wife and I each had their six inch fish taco and shared veggie nachos, in addition to trying their signature rum drink the "Drink Right, Drive Left". The food was very good... More

We stopped to eat here after finishing the Ram Head Trail hike. We had nachos, pulled pork tacos and passion fruit ice-cream. Everything was excellent! Only wish I would have ordered 2 pulled pork tacos instead of one!

Don't be fooled by its name - it is a tourist trap! Okay it is a funky spot and the bananaquits are fun to watch. The lobster sandwich is pretty good and it's not expensive, but the kudos here go mostly to the lobster - because there is not much art in cooking it. I was told by the waitress... More

After visiting Salt Pond bay we always stop here for a lobster roll. Again we were not disappointed, the food was incredible and the service outstanding. This a quirky wonderful place which creates some very interesting conversations between tables. This is one of the stops i always recommend for the day trip to St John from St Thomas and the...

Loved every minute we were there-the lobster roll, the service and the absolute laid back atmosphere can't be beat!! It was closed on Monday but we made a special trip back to the east end of the island the next day. So glad we did!!

After Hiking the Ramshead Trail, we dined at the Tourist Trap. Loved hearing Bruce Springsteen on the radio while we had great drinks and food. I had the lobster roll and it was fine. Kids had tacos and they were tasty. Portions aren't huge but the food is tasty and it is a fun experience.

I enjoyed the service, the food, and the atmosphere at this unique "restaurant." Located just outside the entrance to Concordia Eco Resort, The Tourist Trap is just a collection of tables and a kitchen shack with a distant view of the water; but, despite the rustic furnishings, the food was so tasty I couldn't resist a second round!
