I have been coming to this restaurant since I was a child and as I'm about to retire, that means a long time. The surroundings are tired and the carpets gross. But never mind I said the food is always good. Well it's not. The lobster bisque was $11.00 so I expect a lot from a soup at that price.... More

I have visited Halifax before for just the lobster and I must say I still like the lobster they serve here at Lobster Trap! The seasoning is amazing and very tasty! I love their Lobster bisque!

The Management goes above and beyond to make your meal a very memorable one. My brother has been telling me about the food for years, he treated me to dinner. I was really impressed with the food quality. I know the décor is outdated, but I went for the food. I will go back in a heartbeat.

Old furnishings. Dead air conditioning. Not enough waitstaff. Slow service. One bottle of each wine so they could not bring a second. But worse: the lobster was overcooked and chewy. This used to be our favorite. Best to let old memories fade. Let this place die on its own.

First of all, I need to tell you I'm a Maritimer although living in Toronto. And of course Lobster is a delicious offering to me. So driving past The Lobster Trap restaurant on a frequent basis I said, each time, to my soulmate "we should go there". Finally, early one evening, parked the car in the lot just behind, we... More

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
