Was told to go to the Crab Trap. I had the salmon encrusted with sweet potatoes in a maple glaze, salmon was on the dry side, everyone elses meals were okay. Been there done it probably won't go back.

Looking for delicious food and fun atmosphere, this is the place. Huge wrap around bar with plenty of seats. Great prices for everything on the menu. Friendly staff and very attentive and we didn't have to wait long for our food to be served. It's great place and we look forward to going back soon.

Whenever possible, we have dinner at the Crab Trap. We usually start at the outside bar and work our way inside. The Crab Trap is a large venue with large portions. Come hungry. My favorite choice is a salad. Fresh and very filling.

As locals, we have been enjoying meals here for years but after two recent disappointments, we will go elsewhere. Yesterday was the last time for us. Waiting for our waitress to greet us and offer drinks took a long time. Waiting for the drinks to be served took longer still with the white wine warm and water was forgotten. By... More

I always stop at this Restaurant when in the area. You are guaranteed great food - great service - great time. We recently stopped in after finishing a drive from Florida and really just wanted to relax. We ordered clams at the bar and a drink and in no time at all the food arrived. Very nice and friendly bar.

My husband and I have been going to the crab trap for years. We can always count on getting good food here. Our whole family has eaten here over the years. We love it. Service is good and always professional. The crab bisque is wonderful, as well as the deviled clams. I have also had steak, it was delicious. They... More

This was a good place for seafood if you are in the area. The soup du jour was lobster bisque, full of flavor and rich, the clams casino was also a good appetizer. For entrees we had the baked crab imperial & admiral sauté (crab, shrimp & scallop over pasta), both dishes were delicious. Wait service was decent. Would recommend... More

I can't tell you how many times we have been here for lunch and for dinner. We love this restaurant. All crab cakes we order elsewhere are compared to the Crab Traps. We find it difficult to order anything else when we go there. And the crab bisque is to die for.Its very rich so my husband and I share... More
