Visited many time. Larry moved to Puerto Rico and it is closed. This is very sad, as he was in a lease dispute, with the land owner. It was truly, one of a kind.

So sad our visit in May was our last. A great place that holds so many memories for my family. Thank you Mary!

Put it this way ... Tourist Trap was a freaking institution in the years it was there and the Drink Right Keep Left was the absolute best drink we had (many, many times over two weeks) the entire time we were on St. John. Ultimately,...More

Tourist Trap is closed and the spot is for sale, check local listings. Larry's retired and will be doing more jamming on his harmonicas. I hope it will be vegan if reopened as something else, what could be better in the most beautiful environmental sites...More

Mary is the best waitress around, she is friendly and always tells you what to is best that day. Larry makes the best lobster rolls, beef nachos, and just plain ole veggie anchors! We always go on Monday or Tuesday just to see Mary.

Unfortunately, the owner has retired and the business is closed. A great loss to the island of St. John

The food was great and the drinks-fantastic! Don't miss the Painkiller! Mary took our picture with a great view in the background. When she heard I was a vegetarian, she brought veggie burgers from home for the next day! Definitely go! Relaxing and refreshing!!!

The food is at round tables or picnic tables, with a view of the water in the distance. There are trees nearby where bananaquit's are fed sugar, and there are tons of them! As far as food - three of us had the lobster sandwich...More

Sat down at a picnic table right next to Larry, the owner. We were prescribed the signature drink, Boom Boom, and the local craft brown ale, both excellent! Ordered the infamous Lobsta Roll and pork nachos. Very good although I would recommend Larry's pulled pork...More
