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

We loved the friendly atmosphere, the owners know everyone! Now let's talk about the food. Wow! We had a lobster dinner special for 29.98 which consisted of two 1lb lobsters, two clam chowder and two... More

We drove past this restaurant on the way to our hotel and decided that evening to give it a try. It was quite busy when we got there which is always a good sign!! We were shown to a table and given a menu. My husband had a prawn cocktail to start followed by steak and lobster tail. I just... More

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.
