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.

The portions of crab claws were good but crab legs were not. The shrimp bisque was way too salty and not a lot of flavor. To sum it up, the food... More

I really don't have any complaints about this restaurant. It was clean, service was good and food was hot. However, with so many other restaurants to choose from, nothing stood out. Of the 7 people in our party, no one wanted to go back for a 2nd visit with other seafood restaurants to choose from. Maybe we just didn't order... More

This Crab Trap is better than the one in Destin. Better service by far. Crab cakes on fried green tomatoes and fresh shrimp. Yummy!,

Gumbo, blackened chicken pasta and hush puppies were my fav. The atmosphere was very laid back and family friendly.

The food is fresh and very authentic, but what made the experience was our waiter' Tom. He was very attentive and had tons of advice and recommendations.
