Lunch before ladies shopping trip. Since a pre-noon lunch is before #beer:30 in some places and rum pain killers always seem to be ok, I did the rum. Good jerk chicken sandwich. Had the coleslaw side to get green food group. Waitress did a great job of addressing all of our needs.

They brew all the own beer here, also fabulous root beer. There is a beer for everyone. Try the R&R. Rum and Root beer, it is a can't be missed item.

This was a quaint little spot tucked away in a shopping area just of the docks in St. John's island. The food was great, the beer good and the service friendly and warm.

I love the vibe at the tap room, young and perky, up beat and fun. And the beer is amazing! I'll look forward to seeing it after the new expansion is finished.

The food was good, the beer was great, and we loved the people and the atmosphere. Service was good - the place was crowded at lunch time, and we got good, prompt service. Nice place to hang out and take a break from shopping.

We ate at the bar one afternoon and had beer and burgers- huge burgers that hit the spot. Great, friendly service.

Server with the attitude from hell! .Her excuse was a large table top. Waited 40 minutes for a small pizza and a blackened Mahi-mahi sandwich. Way too much bread, tasteless and a hideous cole slaw to top it off. It was hard to leave her a tip, although I did.

As we came into town from the beach we found a parking spot in Mongoose Junction, though we were not going to Mongoose Junction we took the spot and then saw the warning sign that our jeep would be booted if we parked and went somewhere else. So we walked around Mongoose Junction and found the Tap Room, there we... More

The Tap Room, run by St. John Brewing Company, is a small very informal place with a nice small balcony that overlooks the main shops walkway. The food is all right, but in my opinion, coming from Vermont which has more excellent microbrewery per capita than anywhere else in the U.S., the beer brewed and served here is second to... More

Nice beer, cool atmosphere. We enjoyed our trip here. Located in Mongoose Junction- a nice little shopping area- obviously geared toward tourists- but fun anyway.

The Tap Room is the location of St. John Brewers brewery and brew pub. We create award winning beers and sodas on location at our brewery that supplies our 16 draft line brew pub. Come relax in our A/C bar or two outdoor patios while enjoying your day on St. John. Our food menu has something for everyone from our fresh salads, delicious fish tacos, or warm Bavarian pretzels. There are plenty of great menu options served with a cold draft beer, homemade soda, or local fruit infused cocktails. We also offer brewery tours on Mon/Wed/Fri at 4 PM so you can check out the brewery and sample our great beers!
