The outside doesn't look like much but the food was very good. All three of us enjoyed our meals from grilled wahoo with lobster cream sauce, red snapper and yellow fin tuna. You must try the coconut cake.

We ate here twice during our week stay. They have several specials every night. For starter we had the lobster won tons, crab cakes and conch fritters- all yummy! For entrees we had the shrimp fettuccini, and 2 of the specials- red snapper and wahoo- both very fresh and well done. Great service! great seafood! Highly recommend!

Fantastic dinner. The fish was fresh and expertly cooked. We went to dinner on a Sunday night during low season and we were immediately seated. The dinner was delicious. Would recommend to anyone visiting St. John.

The Fish Trap is the place to go on St. John. We just got back from a wonderful vacation and stumbled on this fantastic restaurant that never disappointed us with delicious meals and friendly staff. Not to mention the amazing deserts. I would highly reccomend this restaurant in Cruz Bay. We ate there 4 out of 6 nights. Cannot wait... More

Fish Trap has a fish market within the building, so all the fishermen take their catch of the day to them. The fish is always fresh and deliciously cooked.

We had to try this based on recommendations from other Westin guests and were certainly not disappointed. Great seafood dishes...

Food was very good here. Had Jambalaya, Jerk chicken, fried shrimp and fish and chips. Got there late and the staff was very friendly and attentive even though they were at the end of their night.

There were six in our party and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals! We arrived in time for happy hour meal specials (until 6:30) making it more affordable. The server and hostess were very friendly and helpful. This was our 2nd visit and we will definitely be back!

Thank Scrapnsuzy
