The Fish Trap is generally our first stop for dinner when we arrive on St. John. For appetizers we order conch fritters or their delicious seafood chowder. Our meal is a whole red snapper that is fried and served with teriyaki glaze and vegetables. Absolutely fabulous if you are a seafood lover. The menu has a wide variety of dishes... More

Great spot for a meal in town. Good fish selection, friendly staff. Large restaurant, can be busy. Find parking elsewhere as only a couple of spaces out front.

Love love this place. One of the best. Hats off to the chef!!! Every meal we have eaten there has been tasteful. Would have taken a picture of the meal but consumed it before I had a chance. Next time 👍

Our group of 6 dined here the evening of March 19th. The hostess and server were great--they accommodated our group happily and quickly (we didn't have a reservation). The special of the evening was wahoo. Several of us had that and it was excellent!! The rest of the group had other menu items--I believe swordfish was excellent also. The rum... More

Great food and great service. It isn't overly priced for the amount of food you get. I would recommend The Fish Trap and I would eat there again.

Woo hoo for Wahoo! Seems like it is always available here which is great because I love it. The food here is dependably good. Always an interesting variety. Good Key Lime Pie, too.

We dined at Fish Trap this past week, and had such an awesome dinner! We were there for a private dinner, but nonetheless the food was fantastic. Freshest fish, great drinks, and the service was phenomenal. This was our first trip to the island, and when we return, we will make sure to dine here again!

We loved the fish sandwich and tried many different dishes here. The only problem we had was a waitress we had one night. She completely ignored us and never checked back for water or to see how we liked our meals (even though she stopped by the table next to us many times).
