What's not to like about this restaurant? This is a premier, very high volume, "seafood" house by the bay, outside Ocean City NJ. They've been doing this right for decades now. The bar service, floor management, and waitstaff are pros. They're phenomenal, or they wouldn't be there. The food... read more

Stopped in for dinner during the busy memorial day weekend. Only wzited 30 minutes for a table, well worth the wait. Seafood dinner consisted of abundant large portions, of very fresh fish, crab, shrimp, scallops, etc. Each member of our party ordered something different, and we were all more than happy. Service is great, very professional, and your meal is... More

One of my favorite seafood meals is anything with crabs. This restaurant is fabulous. There were four of us visiting today and we each had a different crab meal. Everyone gave their meal an A+. I recommend this restaurant highly.

This very large and accommodating restaurant ALWAYS has a line--no reservations. If there is a degree better than 'Excellent', the Crab Trap deserves it. The huge mouth watering menu is fantastic. The hot and cold appetizers (Clams Casino are the BEST); the entrees both Meat and the most delicious Sea Foods are superlative, and the servers are extremely professional, especially... More

Good tasting food, but the portions were small. I ordered the stuffed flounder. The flounder was rolled up, and amounted to two 2" diameter portions. I thought, for the price, is should have been more present.

After a small wedding we dined here with a group of friends. The service was excellent, the food very good, the prices were very reasonable. We had to wait about 10 minutes or so for a private area and table for 8 but it was well worth it. Definitely will be back.

Went for lunch on a Friday in late April. The place was packed. You might have thought it was summer time. Always have had a good meal here. This time was no exception. Both of us ordered the Broiled crab cake lunch special. It came with soup or salad, side dish and dessert for 12.95. Very good deal! Also shared... More

I eat at the Crab Trap regularly. With one or two exceptions, the meals are excellent. My sisters and I dined there for a late lunch last Sunday and the three of us were very impressed. I ordered broiled Jersey scallops. They were simply prepared and may be the best I've ever eaten. One of my sisters generally orders shrimp... More
