We rented a car for the day and made our way around St. John. David from Coconut Coast recommmned we make this one of our stops. There are a few picnic tables and that's it. We had a great lunch and the lobster roll was delicious.

Low key with all the right components. Super friendly, tasty food and great beverages make for a worthwhile stop. Additionally, music played from the owner's amazing CD collection will not be a random shuffle, but an entire album side. Even heard some Captain Beefheart!

The owner is from NH! Casual outdoor setting. Great off the beaten path place to have lunch. Blackened fish tacos are tasty and fresh. Other menu items also very good.

If you are out in Coral Bay down near Salt Cay, be sure to pop in for a quick lunch. Great service, great food and reasonable price.

This truly looks like a whole in the wall but the view, drinks and food were terrific! The service was also very good. I would love to have their fish tacos again!

Since we live in Ohio, good, fresh fish is hard to come by. So when we travel to the islands we eat all the fish we can. I make the exception at the Tourist Trap. Their pork tacos are simply amazing. My mouth is watering right now remembering the taste. They also currently have a local brew available, Drunk Bay.... More

We were so hungry after hiking Ram's Head trail that we stopped at the first place we saw - which was the Tourist Trap. We had good food, enjoyed the view, the birds, and the server / cook! Good Place!

I was so excited to come to this spot after reading so many good reviews! The view is nice, the sugar birds are beautiful to watch, and the service was good. However the food was not great.
