My wife and I ate outside for lunch. We split a platter which had shrimp, scallops and a crab cake baked in shell (small shell). It was very good and food fresh. Check it out and enjoy.

We live here and frequent the Crab Trap every few weeks. The hostess staff is very nice and our server, Jocelyn, was wonderful. She was very attentive to our needs and our food came out rather quickly even though the restaurant was pretty full. Cheer Mom

Nice place on the beach. Food was not as good as expected but enjoyable. The kids got a nice bucket with their meals which made everyone happy

Service was poor. My son's food was wrong and there was no apology. When he did get his hamburger it had an awful taste and he refused to eat it. This was our second time here and I wish we had stayed at the condo for pb&j's.

This is your typical seafood-by-the-sea tourist destination. The view is lovely, and our server was very gracious and attentive. Kudos for that. The calamari comes covered with a delicious sweet and spicy sauce. The hot crab dip with pita bread was very good, not over- or under-seasoned, and made a very effective sandwich spread for my shrimp po'boy, which was... More

I came here with my boyfriend and we were sat immediately on a Friday night around 6. The service was fast and our waitress was great. The food was great, too. I definitely recommend the hot crab dip!

This was super. We ate here 2 times while here for a week. The quantity of food that you get is way more than what I normally eat. I left there with a full belly.

We dine here each time we're in Fort Walton and know it's overpriced, but the view is spectacular. We visited yesterday afternoon, sat at the outside bar and received by far the worst service yet. The bartender didn't introduce himself, had zero interest in speaking to us, and seemed annoyed we were there (he was quite busy flirting with a... More
