“Great Food & Beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

The loast coast beers are really good and the food is excellent as well. I had the clam chowder in the bread bowl and my girlfriend had pan blackened salmon, bothe were excellent. The steamed artichoke was really good too. Its a small place stuck down a side street but everyone knows about this place :)

“Good food and fun atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

On an evening when most restaurants had few customers, this place was hopping. Found out that it was burger night - burger, fries, and a beer for 11 dollars. They feature fresh fish and that night I had Mahi Mahi - delicious.

“Great food for a great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Casual place with a restaurant/bar vibe. The local lobster (when available) is worth going back every night for. Really good food and a really good price. Definitely worth a visit!!

“Great Little Dive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

The Lobster Trap has a delicious lobster roll sandwich and a welcoming atmosphere. It's casual, loud, and fun. The staff is friendly, and the food is excellent. It's right off the main drag and perfect for some seafood and a cold beer.

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

The owner serves what he catches. The lobster dish was reasonably priced and tasted amazing. They also have a signature appetizer called Monkey Balls that are really good too. You have to try it!
