This restaurant is a little off the beaten path but well worth it. We always stop there for lunch when in North Conway, food is great and so is the server. I had chowder and lobster roll, my husband had the fried seafood combo, both were delicious and specially priced for lunch. Can't wait to go back!

Loved the twin lobsters, cooked to perfection! The mussel and clam bake upgrades were good. Service was ok, could have been more attentive.

Stopped by here after a train ride at North Conway train station for dinner. Our family was from Ohio and Massachusetts so we came here for the seafood! We had great service from a local waitress who chatted with us while the rest of our party was on their way. Get there before 6:00 pm for their specials as the... More

We found the Lobster Trap through Tripadvisor reviews - it was a bit of a drive out of town to find it - we wouldn't have just come across it on our own, but we enjoyed our evening there. The best part were the fresh, warm, soft rolls they brought us right away. We ordered the Seafood Pasta platter -... More

We had dinner here on the Saturday night of Columbus Day weekend. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table for 3. Service was a bit slow, but the restaurant was quite busy. The food was good, and the restaurant gave my daughter a free ice cream "just because." Nothing spectacular, but a pleasant experience overall.

Hey, go before 6:00 pm and your get some great special prices on some wonderful food. If you don't go early, you may need a sleeping bag, it is just that good.

We really enjoyed the Lobster Scampi. It was very flavorful and it had 1/4 of a pound of lobster meat over fettucine pasta. Waitress very very pleasant and accommodating to all of our needs. Definitely would go back.

Things started off pleasant. Received a bowl of clam chowder that had a decent sized bug in it. Then we were told sorry and asked if we would like another bowl...the restrooms were in horrible condition. The portions were small and expensive. You get as much food if you pay for a cheaper lobster meal as a very expensive one.... More
