Okay, lobster in North Conway? Yep. Pretty good stuff. Fresh from the tank. We all had lobster rolls. Not too original of us, but that is what we like. A bit on the small size, but tasty. Portions size is very reasonable for price. If I hadn't have just had a bowl of chowder, I would have ordered two of... More

Wandered in this restaurant strictly due to the proximity of our hotel, but it was good fortune working overtime. We ordered lots of various seafood, and it was delicious. The pasta was perfectly done and our server went out of their way to make it a easy to enjoy a number of items.

We went to the Lobster Trap during the early bird special which is served every day from 11:30 am until 6 pm. Both my hubby and I had the Lobster Roll which was absolutely delicious. The roll is filled with very tasty lobster meat. You have a choice of sides, I had the French Fries and hubby had the Onion... More
