Looks like nothing much has changed since our last trip to Cruz Bay. Locals and tourists alike agree that the food is very good. If you want the atmosphere, sit out on the porch, if you need air conditioning sit in the bar area. We...More

We love the Fish Trap! It's a must go to every time we come to St. John. We usually visit a few times while we're here. Food is great and so is the service!

Most of the restaurants run on St John, are on Island time. So sit down and soak up the island life. The Fish trap has been consistent for many years and still is, nothing to get overly excited about but in general has good food.
