As we came into town from the beach we found a parking spot in Mongoose Junction, though we were not going to Mongoose Junction we took the spot and then saw the warning sign that our jeep would be booted if we parked and went somewhere else. So we walked around Mongoose Junction and found the Tap Room, there we... More

The Tap Room, run by St. John Brewing Company, is a small very informal place with a nice small balcony that overlooks the main shops walkway. The food is all right, but in my opinion, coming from Vermont which has more excellent microbrewery per capita than anywhere else in the U.S., the beer brewed and served here is second to... More

Nice beer, cool atmosphere. We enjoyed our trip here. Located in Mongoose Junction- a nice little shopping area- obviously geared toward tourists- but fun anyway.

Stopped in for a beer while in Cruz Bay. Decided to have a quick bite to eat and got one of their hotdogs. Great combination.

We were returning from Maho Bay and needed some food. For the previous 10 days or more, we were enjoying the local St John beers and decided to stop at The Taphouse. The Summer Ale is my favorite and my wife tried and loved the Mango Ale. While expecting standard "bar food," we found ourselves mistaken. My steak and cheese... More

Stopped in a couple of times during our vacation. Tight spot right now due to a relocation because of a fire. They are in a small room with 4 or 5 tables and a small bar. They are rebuilding the full size restaurant now. Good beers (really the only craft beers on the island). On draft at the bar, the... More

We ate lunch and loved it. Simple food, families everywhere, and prompt and courteous service. Not a great variety, but that was not the point.

We just loved it! We had so much fun and we got a chance to test all the great beer.... More

we had a great beer and a nice flat bread here and it was a reasonably priced stop on a hot day in St. John. it will be even better when the new digs just down the hall open up soon.

Dear sgaus, Thanks for stopping in and enjoying our establishment. We are getting much closer to opening the new space, with a bigger bar, larger beer selection, more seating, enhanced menu, etc... We are looking forward to it, and hope to see you there on your next visit. Cheers, The Tap Room More
