Well folks, yet another restaurant here on island listed for sale. This time, it’s The Fish Trap.
The Fish Trap has been a St. John staple for more than 30 years. Located in Cruz Bay just around the corner from Wharfside Village, the restaurant has both open air seating outside, as well as an air conditioning inside dining room. It has a nice 800 square-foot bar too, which is also air conditioning.
The Fish Trap currently offers between six and eight fish specials every night. Its tuna and coconut cake have garnered national attention in some of the country’s best culinary publications … yum!
The restaurant also comes with an area for wine storage, a large walk-in freezer, use of a 20,000 gallon cistern and a generator to run the kitchen in the event of a power outage. It also features a large kitchen, market and food prep areas. This space has lots of potential!
The lease options are negotiable and the term is 10 years, according to the listing. The rent is currently $5,500 a month.
The Fish Trap is being offered by 340 Real Estate Co. for $350,000. Looking for more information? Please contact Tammy at 340 Real Estate Co. at [email protected]

Wow- this is one of those moments-a landmark
location ripe for a makeover comes on the market. I personally think it’s a great opportunity for the right person/group!
One can hope that this pillar of the community and Cruz Bay continues, but..
Sad,,really a sad moment,,,
The first place I ate when visiting my first time. All you can eat shrimp night with cold brew. Sure hope the new owners keep the island ambiance and food. I don’t think St John needs another upscale restaurant, the island is turning away from its quiet, underdeveloped status. Best of the future to the current owners.
