2 people ordered 1 1/4 broiled lobster, the pasta and had lobster bisque. We had a Buytopia voucher - $30 for $60 worth of food. All the food was delicious but they all had one thing in common. Very rich... overly rich. I think they overuse cream and/or butter to make it taste so good but then you can only... More

My family has been dining at the Lobster Trap restaurant for over 40 years. We love this place. The food is always great and the service too. There is something good on the menu for everyone. We love this place.

Although a tank of lobsters greeted us on entry, they were probably wondering why we were there. The environment looks tired and in need of a total renovation..A distinct unpleasant smell greets you as you enter and it stayed with us till we left..We were enthusiastically greeted and hence felt too guilty at that point to leave. I ordered the... More

Here you will find the most delicious lobsters in town. The restaurant has new management and they try to make each visitor happy. I was with my family here, and we are very satisfied. Our children had also very yammy dishes. Everything is very fresh and the service is very quick and friendly. In the evening a little crowded, so... More

I went here with my family because we remembered going as kids and loving it. What a disappointment.....lobster was rubbery and chewy.....tasted like it was frozen and then reheated. Yuk!

Birthday dinner for our 23 year old son. My wife used to go here quite often with her family but admitted it had been awhile. Well the first issue I had upon arrival was the tired, worn and frankly not all that clean appearance. My wife said it was just as she remembered it when she lived around the corner... More

I really expected more, especially for the price. First problem there is no sign at the door advising that the staff will seat you so my partner and I waited for a good 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged us. The decor is beyond outdated. Our waitress was negligent and we paid $62 for a steak, lobster tail and baked potato... More

I first went to this restaurant over 20 years ago when I was in highschool. My dad found out about it and it was a gem! We used to love seeing the lobster tank full to the brim. Although I left Toronto in 1990, any time I was in town, we would make an effort to go there. I moved... More
