“Great drinks... and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We came here after spending the day at Salt Pond Bay. Its a teent tiny spot on the side of the road. The rum drink 'Drink Right, Drive Left' was awesome! And the pulled pork nachos were amazing as well! We wanted to eat more but they didn't take credit cards so we had to pool our cash to get those. But it was worth spending all your cash!

“Staycation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

My boyfriend and I live on St. Thomas and took a little get away to Concordia in St. John. Larry and Mo served us some incredibly yummy food and gave us some great "local St. Johnian" advice. Great prices - great drinks - wonderful view. We will be back... (maybe tomorrow :)

“Had to try it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

We'd passed the Tourist Trap a half dozen times this week on snorkeling expeditions and just had to stop and see what it was all about. Larry was serving up some very good BBQ pulled pork and sour slaw. Excellent food, nice outdoor seating, and top notch service from "Mo"! If you're on the Coral Bay side of the island, it is a must-stop for lunch!

“Love Larry and the Tourist Trap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is one of our regular stops every time we are on the island...Larry is a hoot, the food is great, and the patrons are like part of our family.

“what a spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Wanted to eat at Miss Lucy's on the way snorkeling, but it wasn't open, so we came across this place up the road. Just a little place along side the road. What a delight. About 5 outside tables, small bar, but what food, and reasonable. I had the grouper taco , my wife the grouper sandwich, and a couple Caribs. While Lucy's has the reputation, we felt fortunate it was closed. I highly recommend the Tourist Trap, don't be fooled by the name.
