We were staying in the White Mountain hotel and took a short spin down the road to the Lobster Trap. It's a nice setting, warm welcoming and comfortable. We had a clam chowder to start which was very tasty and just perfect for a cold night. I then had a steak which was cooked perfectly and was nice and tasty,... More

I've been wanting to try this place and finally I did. My husband and I went for dinner one night last month. The atmosphere is very comfortable, somewhat diner-like but clean and nice. We had a wonderful lobster dinner for two which was a great value. The clam chowder was some of the best I've had. Onion rings were to... More

I had the stuffed haddock when I was in North Conway. It was very fresh and the stuffing was amazing. I don't think you can find a better seafood meal for the price point.

All during the HS football season, we would go to the Trap either before or after the games. Some of them were televised and we could sit at the bar, eat and watch the games on TV. The food is always excellent and BillyMac makes it fun to hang out there.

I saw good reviews for the restaurant and decided to give it a try! What a mistake...first the decor was VERY dated, green rug , tables with plastic green tablecloth in a room with fluorescent light with bad wall colors. But if only food had been good. I had lobster diavolo at 28$. Lots of lobster but in a hot... More

Our first meal out in North Conway. We're visiting from the UK for xmas. We had researched the area and had planned to visit and we were not disappointed. We had delicious food - fresh pizza, clam chowder, salmon and steak. We'll probably be back this week. Bill Jr. looked after us and made us feel very welcome. Thank you.

What would a trip out east be without a Lobster meal??!! While in New Hampshire I knew that the trip would be incomplete without at least one Lobster dinner. Looked in the dining guide and choose the Lobster Trap in North Conway. What a cute quaint homey little restaurant. And our waitress had a very warm inviting way about her---she... More
