Get there before five or after eight thirty in season, or be prepared to wait an hour at least. Our wait wasn't bad because we sat on stools near the bar and had a cocktail. I had the Maryland Crab Soup. Nicely done, and I'm part Marylander. My entree was the Crab Imperial, very good. Husband had the fried seafood... More

We've been coming annually to OCNJ for almost 10 years now and The Crab Trap is part of that tradition. For the first time even we came on a Saturday night since it was raining. It was packed as expected. We arrived at 5:50, seated at 7PM. Since we pre-scanned the menu's, as soon as our server showed up we... More

We visited the Crab Trap last Saturday afternoon. It was later in the day so it was not very crowded. We were greeted as soon as we arrived and seated immediately. Our waiter took a while to get to us, but when he did he was very friendly and gave us great service. My husband had the crab cakes which... More

The Crab Trap is a great place to go with friends or family. The decor is perfect for the Jersey Shore and the prices vary from modest to a bit pricey. The lunch specials include soup or salad, entree, 2 sides, dessert and beverage. The specials change daily with a choice of 4 or 5 entrees. One of my favorites... More

We love going to eat at the Crab Trap. The food is excellent. Any item we've ever ordered is always consistently great. Some of our favorites are Deviled Crab, Clams Casino, Maryland Crab Bisque, Clam Strips and I could go on! Their steaks are excellent so it's not just seafood. The dinners are generous portions and they offer many, many... More

After the labor day crowd left on Tuesday we went to this restaurant recommended by our friends who rented a shore house for 2 weeks. If I come to visit I want to go out to dinner at a good seafood place and this is where they took us. I ordered the best thing I could fine which was the... More

Always enjoy good and fresh seafood, and this was another restaurant at the Jersey Shore that delivered. Food was not only good, but very generous portions. Nice touch with the warm bread basket, as this is something that is becoming rare. There was a wait, but our time was shorter then indicated. Cute little bar on the bay with a... More

Have to say this is one of the busiest places around town.. Try to come on off hours, there is less wait time. The menu is pretty decent and food is good. They are great with children and have a pretty varied menu for them. Service is okay, just wish they looked happier. Overall, this is a great place to... More

The is a notorious hot spot for families and seniors. Every day of the week is busy, even as the summer comes to a close. Food is very good, prices are fair, but prepare to wait if you arrive at traditional dinner hour. Try to dine "off hours" if you want to avoid a dreadful wait. The food is good,... More
