I had the crab cakes, rice, fried green onions, and hush puppies. My husband had lobster and shrimp linguini. For me, the rice and crab cake were overly salty, for my husband, he thought is was good---not great. One domestic beer, and ice tea and the the bill came to $62 inc. tip. Now the view was great. The restaurant... More

Stopped in for a fried grouper sandwich and a drink at the bar area with a great view of the ocean. Food is good and given the average price at restaurants in the area (hey, its a tourist spot) it was worth the money. The service gets just an OK because they were busy and I was sitting facing the... More

When we are in Ft Walton, we make sure we always go to the Crab Trap. They have the best view of the beach! Not only is the view great, but the food and service is always wonderful as well. Most of the beach front restaurants have less than great services and ok food. .. but we are always very... More

We at there (the one in Destin) 3 nights...we obviously loved the food. We also love the atmosphere with the open windows, casual but lovely interior and a fabulous view of the Gulf.

On our last night in Destin, we saved The Crab Trap for our last meal in Florida. WHAT A MISTAKE! We have eaten at this location many times on our trips to Destin and have recommended it to many friends and relatives when they are in the Destin area. Tonight, our meal was horrible and the service worse. We were... More

Between the perfect weather the friendly staff and the delicious Cajun Mahi sandwich it just doesn't get any better! I've been here several times and have yet to be disappointed. I'll keep coming back when I'm in town.

I didnt care for my meal but my boyfirnd tried the grouper sandwich and seemed to enjoy it. The pigeons were literally on top of us while eating. That seemed a little unsaintary to me but it is open on the patio/bar area. The food seemed a bit pricey for what we ordered.

We arrived at our condo about 8:45P.M. on a Friday night. We headed out for food as quickly as possible, but every place was closing. We were discouraged/hungry. The Crab Trap was closing at 9:30P.M. but were very welcoming. We saw three other groups come in after us. My husband and I split a shrimp po-boy. It was pretty good.... More
