The views were awesome, but we were not impressed with the food. The food was ok, but it was expensive.

While visiting St. John last week we found that some of our usual lunch spots were still closed for the season. We asked a couple of workers at these lunch spots where we could eat in Coral Bay. One recommended the Tourist Trap. When we drove up it almost looked like a take-out window, but soon Mary the server greeted... More

We have been coming to St. John for 10+ years and never went to the Tourist Trap. Well, we are so glad that we decided to stop by this time. The homemade ice cream, beef nachos and specialty adult beverages were so yummy!!! The Tourist Trap will definitely be a must stop from now on for us!

Don't miss your stop at this "luncheonette" if you're out driving the island for the day. The hospitality of the staff/owners couldn't have been any better and the food was excellent. The lobster was particularly good and the locally-brewed beer was tasty and cold. The views from the top of the hill while you enjoy your food and drinks are... More

Stopped hear after a snorkel trip in Salt Pond Bay. The food is tasty; the drinks are even better. This is one of the few places on the island for good frozen concoctions w/ alcohol. Most of all, the atmosphere is fantastic. Loved looking at all the license plates and bumper stickers from around the U.S.. As everyone says, Mary's... More

This is the perfect place to stop if you are coming to/from Salt Pond Bay. We each got a lobster roll which was jam packed with lobster - it was amazing! We also had the signature "Drink Right, Keep Left" drink which was refreshing and very strong. Of course we couldn't leave without trying the homemade mango ice cream which... More

Title says it all. I really wanted a t-shirt that says Drink Right, Stay Left. I was told they were the place, and they were and more. Nice strong drinks, great food at a reasonable price. Great service - nice people running the place and taking care of everything. We were quite happy they had just opened again after the... More

If in the Coral Bay area stop by and say hello to Mary! Believe it or not this little hole in the wall has some of the drinks on the island and the best pork nachos I have ever eaten. Their signature drink is great.... Drink Right, Keep Left!!! We loved it.

We first stopped here after my SIL stepped on an urchin - we stopped in for advice and vinegar. They apparently have this happen often, and gave us some paper towels and a little container of vinegar. We came back for lunch and had wonderful, jam-packed lobster rolls! Holy smokes were they packed. And light on the mayo, which is... More

The owner and staff are pleasant but the food and atmosphere needs a lot of work to say the least. If your just plain starving and just can't get to better food this is the place for you.
