I was on a business trip and we went to the Crab Trap. Excellent food, service and atmosphere. When we went there, there was a special for the night, I ended up with 2 full meals (salad, entree, dessert) which one I used as my lunch for the next day. Both were excellent (a shrimp and lobster dish... read more

So its Valentine's day and we're in Ocean City, New Jersey. Sure, we could drive to Atlantic City for dinner, but why do that when the Crab Trap is just across the causeway!!! We took our chances ... no reservation ... and it was well-worth the 20 minute wait! The meal couldn't have been better ... flounder with crab imperial,... More

Crab Trap is most likely the best in Somers Point They have a great menu for steaks and seafood Be prepared to have a wait because the Crap Trap gets really busy no matter what time of year On the summer there is Crabby Jacks dock side bar which has a nice view of the bay and lighted bridge

The service certainly could be better. The food is decent, but nothing out-of -the-ordinary. The prices are on the high side.

Went here on a very cold Monday night for Customer Appreciation Night. The large menu offers two 3-course dinners for $36.00...a real value! The food is always delicious & consistent. I ordered the New England Clam Chowder which was very tasty. My entree was the Jack Daniels Salmon...always a winner! It came with creamy mashed potatoes & succotash (lima beans... More

This place is a classic and has been around forever. Award winning crab imperial that is out of this world. And a generally good menu all around. They could use some newer entrees and 'cleaner' vegetable options (everything seemed slathered in a combo of butter and flour). While a subtlety, this is one of those places that's very busy. They...

Service is ok not overly friendly...long waits and the salads are horrible..nothing to brag about. The seafood is overpriced and doesnt really taste that fresh..the lunches are not that great and it seems to appeal to the over 65 year old crowds...just right for tourists...food quality isnt that great...crabby jacks is better

We just happened onto this place after driving through Ocean City this fall. The parking was a little complicated, but once inside, we were delighted. The tables were nice, chairs comfortable and we were seated near a fireplace. The service was excellent and the food great! The seafood we ordered was hot and prepared very well - delicious. We had... More

Great value at the Jersey shore. For the value nothing is better in South/ Central Jersey. Seafood flounder, Lobster, crab cakes, steaks are all excellent. Great bar and appetizer selection.
