The Tourist Trap – What’s in a name …
2016 UPDATE – CLOSED!
Owner Larry Grenier has struck a chord with visitors by combining yummy food and island drinks in a funky atmosphere located, well, in the middle of nowhere! But don’t let the name or the location keep you from making this your next stop on St John. Your stomach will thank you!
“…brilliantly anomalous” – NY TIMES
Once a well kept secret – The Tourist Trap restaurant on St John has established itself as one of the top spots to enjoy drinks and eats! Ranked the #2 St John restaurant on Tripadvisor and over 1,300 “Likes” on their Facebook page – means they’re no longer a secret.
“What’s an exotic holiday without a stop at a tourist trap?” – Chicago Tribune Travel
Nothing highbrow here!
The menu is a mix of fun and casual options from nachos to sandwiches, tacos and hot dogs each with the chef’s signature panaché. My favorites are the Caribbean Lobster Roll, BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich and the “Trap Dog”. Wash any of these down with an ice cold beer or island drink and feel St John’s arms lovingly wrap around you!
Located at the crest of the hill just before Concordia with plenty of outdoor seating. The Trap is closed Sundays and Mondays. Open Tues – Sat from 11am to 6pm.
