Great seafood for a great price!

I love the Crab Trap. When we are in town (which is very often) we spend our Friday nights either at the bar or in the dining room. Great atmosphere, great seafood, and really good service!

One of the best places we have ever gone. The Crab trap is consistent and excellent. We have eaten there 100 times over the years .98% have been fantastic. The lunch specials are the best bargain I have ever known in the business. A salad or soup, entree and dessert and coffee for approximately 11.95 .The early bird dinners are... More

Great variety of food for lunch or dinner. Very consistent and good quality. I would recommend anything with fish. Especially crab. Their cuts of meat are also fabulous. If you want to eat something a little different for lunch (not just sandwiches) give this a try. For dessert try the peanut butter pie. It's worth the calories!

Special deal offered on Mondays int the winter for the locals. Two dinners for $36.00, with soup, salad and dessert. Crab cake always the best, French fried lobster, too muck breaking. Soup, salads and sides always great. Need to get new dessert maker, they are awful. Get the ice cream.

Haven't been there in a few years and was so excited to see that the food quality and hospitality was as good, if not better, than always. Everything we ordered was great and our waitress, Tara, was just wonderful.

Last night, during a family gathering, we decided to include a visit to the Crab Trap. Having grown up in Ocean City and an avid foodie along with a passion for seafood, I pushed for us to dine at this familiar restaurant. We called ahead, as we had a party of 7 and were told there was no wait. When... More

The secret is out on this place, it's always crazy busy. They have big dining areas with many tables and the line moves quick. The staff is wonderful, the crab soup is a must. Trust me, it's a meal in itself. Don't over order. Soup, an app, some cocktails. Order more if you want later, take your time and enjoy... More

Our two families chose the Crab Trap because of the location and it's a local favorite! There were seven of us and we were seated in the second dining room next to a gas fireplace. Our excellent server was Michael. Drinks were served: 2 beers ($5), one Orange Crush ($9), one Deep Blue Martini ($9). Fresh seafood takes time to... More
