“Lobster Rolls are not Lobster Rolls. Skip this place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2010

I was very perturbed to go last week (12/25/10) and order their so called famous lobster rolls. It is a crappy piece of bread with miniature SHRIMP meat, not an ounce of LOBSTER to be found. $11????? Not even worth $3. Doesnt seem like they care an ounce but instead swindle their customers to believe they are serving lobster. Take a quick drive or long walk and go to Miss Lucy's instead.

“Lobster rolls that are to die for!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2010

Larry,

Thank you so much for the fun and fabulous food last week! It hasn't even been a week and I already miss your lobster rolls and rum punch! Neil and Michele sure loved Jeff's homebrew.!

I have been wearing my long-sleeved t-shirt this week since I need something to keep me warm in the snow and ice of Chicago.

Say hi to everyone down there!

We miss you!

Kathy, Neil and Michele (we stayed at Concordia)

“This place is awesome! Missing this stop would be like going to France and forgetting to see the Eiffel Tower!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2010

Boasting one of the best views on the island, the Tourist Trap is a fun and inviting spot to sit, relax, drink , and sample one of Larry's famous Manchester, NH hot dogs. I mean these things are to die for! Dog lovers rejoice!
Cheryl and Larry are personable, extremely hospitable and down to earth people. They have a little piece of paradise in this gem of a place.
Definitely, a place to check out!

“Cool little spot, really good food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2010

We stopped for lunch one day and it turned out to be one our best meals all week. We ordered 2 grouper tacos and a lobster to split between my wife and I. We ended up ordering 2 more tacos and another lobster roll before we were finished with the first round. I really loved the fish tacos and my wife really liked the lobster rolls. She also ordered the Drink Right Stay Left(???) and I had a great Bloody Mary. Like I said one of our best meals on the island. We loved it!
