My family took me out to the Crap Trap for my birthday. I was waiting all week for this dinner. We have eaten here before in the past years. They do not take reservations so it's usually a long wait. But you can always go down to the dock and sit at the little bar. You can have a cocktail,... More

Recently had dinner(late August 2014). Thank goodness we had no other plans for the evening!! Arrived about 6:15PM. We finally were "beeped" to be seated at 7:55PM.. yep 1 hour and 40 minutes later. Then we were told that the available table was in the bar area(not the main dining room)! I said after over an 1 1/2 hour wait... More

The prices are very high for just average food. Wait times are ridiculous and portions are small. For supposedly being the best place in Somers Point it makes you wonder.

I met friends at this place on Saturday, August 23rd for a nice retirement dinner. I drove from PA and it took me almost two hours to get there. Prior to arrival, I read the reviews and was looking forward to a nice meal and service. Our party totaled 10 individuals, but 6 of our guests were delayed. Our waitress,... More

I loved the broiled seafood plate. Lobster, flounder. Scallops, stuffed clams, shrimp, and crab cake. My wife had the seafood pasta and loved the scallops too. The lobster balls appetizer was OK. It was supposed to be a 75 minute wait but ended up closer to 100 minutes since our buzzer didn't work. They need more pagers. Originally we didn't... More

Went there on a Friday night - crowded and somewhat noisy but still a nice experience. The food was delicious and worth the wait. The staff is polite but not friendly because they are truly busy. Crab cakes were meaty with not a lot of filler - seasoned perfectly - delicious sauce. Oysters were excellent - I thought their accompaniment... More

My husband and I were here on 8/15/14 and waited an hour and a half to sit down. This is a good restaurant , but not worth waiting for that long. I was celebrating an early birthday dinner and was told they don't take reservations which is absurd since they have a huge venue. I wish they would accommodate reservations... More

We had a party of 16 so my husband went there at 5:45 to put our names on the list; he was told that there would be a one to one 1/2 hour wait. Our party waited and we arrived in that time frame because we had small children. 2 hours later we were STILL waiting and when my husband... More

My family has been going to the Crab Trap for 45 of it's 47 year lifespan...and we are about to give up going. This restaurant has NO policy for dealing with regular customers as well as a policy to "assist" families (who have been coming for years) w/ elderly grandparents who simply cannot WAIT up to 2 hours for a...
