They are very nice and welcoming at this colorful roadside "eatery" but I am sorry to report this place does not have good food. I swear people must arrive here drunk and not give a damn about the crap put down in front of them....More

During our trip around beautiful St. John, hunger hit about the time we saw the Tourist Trap. So glad we stopped. Five stars on the lobster rolls and service. Food was delicious and staff warm and accommodating. Loved it.

Great little place. Service was great. Still have flashbacks of the pulled pork nachos- oh so good. Fish tacos excellent as well. Just fit it in if you are in the area. You won't be disappointed.

Don't miss it! Be sure to try the pulled pork nachos, and their painkiller! Take time to watch the birds eating from the feeders.

Coral Bay is a special place--hard to get there and moreover, harder still to drag oneself away. The Tourist Trap is a mainstay for locals and a great :discovery for tourists. If you're looking for a "pirate bar" give it a try along with Island...More

Great food we and service. LOVED the grouper tacos!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to return. Only wish that I checked their website so I would have known that they were closed on Sundays and Mondays. Really wanted to go back for more grouper tacos before heading home:(
