I was very disappointed in my lunch at Crab Shack II after driving down from St Petersburg to meet a group of friends. I had looked forward to the fried shrimp and it was soggy and tasteless. My parents lived on Terra Ceia Island for years and we always enjoyed the meals at the Crab Shack over there. What happened?... More

We live in Venice, Florida, and frequently go to the Tampa airport to travel or pick up friends. The Trap is a good halfway point for lunch - never been there for dinner. We lunch there about a half dozen times a year. The location, just off I-75, is convenient, the food is good, drinks reasonably priced and portions above... More

We stopped here enroute from TPA heading to the Englewood area. We spotted it off the highway and tried it for lunch - we were hungry and it had outside waterfront seating - our preferred arrangement having arrived from the snowy NE. I am always hesitant to just drop in and try something new, so I asked an elderly couple... More

We were a group of nine-n0 reservation. We were seated very quickly and the hostess was very accommodating. Our waiter, William, was very efficient and friendly and served us quickly. Food was excellent! 9 ladies from St Pete

We happened upon this restaurant a few years ago. We eat here every chance we get, since we live in Indiana it is not often enough. Going to fort Lauderdale for a cruise, went out of the way by going down the west coast just so we could eat here. Crab cakes and grouper Oscar were wonderful, service great. Homemade... More

Very overpriced, food is not as good as it used to be - corners cut but not prices. That and the fact that they still refuse to take Amex (presumably because of the higher credit card fees) gives me a different kind of bad taste in my mouth. Business owners use Amex. People eating where they will pay those kinds... More
