Nicest restaurant in the area

Love the Crab Trap. We've been going there for over 10 years and it never disappoints. Wait lines can be long in season.

Its been about 7 years since we were here last. Some of the reviews here worried me but... We got in early and it was an EXCELLENT meal! 3 of us got in just before the evening rush on a Thursday. We were fortunate with an unclose parking spot (Very rare) and our wait was only 5 minutes. 15 minutes... More

My wife and I came back to enjoy dinner here. Last year we were part of an over 2 hour wait but knowing that we came very early... around quarter to 5pm. Waited only about 1/2 hour. We sat down to what we thought would be a fine dinner. We both ordered stuffed(crab meat) flounder. We started with crab bisque... More

Plan to wait awhile for your table, but the wait it worth it! Consistently good food served in big potions...you can wait at the bar outside and listen to music with a cocktail.

Went here twice within a month while visiting LBI. Great place for excellent fresh seafood, you can either dine on the front deck which has an airstream camper that has been transformed into a walk up bar. This is first come first serve as you can find a table and it has a limited menu. Inside you have a much... More

I used to love this place but no more. I've eaten here many times over the years. The seafood is still perfection & it's still super expensive. This not the only restaurant that serves fine seafood in a place with liquor in Somers Point! There was alot of staff standing around, talking & looking around but It took 20 minutes... More

Just had dinner at Crab Trap with our family from Staten Island - an annual tradition before hitting the OC boards. The seven of us all loved our meals! Appetizers: deviled clams and clams casino were amazing, and lobster bisque was very good, too. Entrees: stuffed flounder, fried flounder, broiled flounder, fried seafood combo, shrimp scampi, swordfish steak and deviled... More

Visited the Crab Trap and according to reviews here best to go later so wait time is not that bad. I checked in around 6;45 and was told it would be a 45 min wait. We went to Crabby Jacks just a short walk down by the bay. Within 30 min our table was ready. Waitress was very good. We... More
