Excellent Seafood

My daughter had a lobster roll served warm with butter. The lobster was soft and tasty. The fried fish combo was eaten by the other three people... read more

Even though we live a short distance from the Trap, we didn't seem to go there much over the last two decades. We started going there on a regular basis last fall, mainly because of the football crowd that bartender Billy attracted. Well he also attracted a lot of people and friends that we knew in town, and now we... More

My family and I went for dinner on a Sunday evening. Not at all crowed. My wife and son split a twin lobster. They allowed them to get separate sides. Both thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Not being a seafood eater I got the chicken parmigiana. It was OK considering this is a seafood restaurant. Will try steak next time. Worth... More

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
