“Funky but first-rate!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

We were recently in St. John and wound up going to lunch twice at the Tourist Trap. The food was really great and freshly prepared, and the staff makes you feel like they've known you for your entire life! Prices are definitely reasonable.....it's one of the best values on the island for dining. We really loved the place.....a bit out of the way if you're staying in Cruz Bay, but a pleasant drive to get there. Highly recommended!!

“An Island Favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

We can't resist stopping by for a drink and any one of Larry's delicious plates when we are on St John. The pulled pork is the best I've ever had!! It's a great place to stop by on your way to/from Salt Pond or any of the beaches on that side of the island.

“Casual hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

I read where the owner terms his place a "little s***hole by the side of the road" and, visually, that's not too far off. Appearances aside, however, the food and drinks are terrific and the hospitality is first class. If you're on that side of the island, it's definitely worth a visit.

“Great food, excellent service, where the locals welcome you with smiles!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

I will miss the fish tacos, home brew, and friendly service! The owners, staff, and local patrons treat you like life long friends and will not hesitate to lend you a hand if you run into trouble on your vacation!
