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).

I had the special. It was a coconut curry fish bowl. Fantastic. My friends enjoyed their meals as well. The server was very attentive and extremely friendly

Surprised by the elegant preparation of a seafood platter that included scallops, shrimp, and filet. Second meal was the salmon. Everything was high quality, well prepared and well seasoned. Very delicious dinner.

Any catch of the day is a good fish. Reosanably priced, served in a relaxed casual atmosphere. Like home cooked food. Almost. Nice short stroll up from the center of Cruz Bay

I had the fish tacos and they were absolutely delicious - the fish was perfectly prepared, the sauces tasty and the presentation fabulous. When I first saw how huge the order was I wasn't sure I could eat it all. but I did and I am happy that i did because I didn't want to leave a bite behind and... More

We stopped for appetizers and cocktails. Crab cakes were amazing. The cakes, sauce and coldslaw were obviously made in the resaurant and seafood chowder had unique seasoning and wonderful flavors. Also, nice, easy listening, live music. I would recommend and we we will return next year.
