“Love all 3!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We tried the other two crab trap locations and decided we should give this one a try as well while we were in town. I have to say they did not let me down. From the food to the service this place was great all around. I tried the king crab and while it is some work to get the crab out it is well worth the effort. We will return next year!

Nice location close to the beach. Food was good with veggies at lunch. Great for kids with play area while parents have a cool drink within view of playground.

“good food, but waitress was stressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

The waitress was by herself at lunch and running all over the place. It was slow, but OK, I had the popcorn shrimp with a bowl of gumbo. Both were good, my wife had the crab cake appetizer and enjoyed it but had intestinal problems later, I hope she is not developing a shell fish intolerance. That would be catastrophic to us seafood lovers.

“Ate Here Twice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We ate here twice because it was so good the first time on Nov 24. There were four of us. We had the fish basket, shrimp basket, Bourbon St Shrimp and hamburger basket. We also had gumbo. Our server was very professional and timely. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The second time my spouse and I ordered take out and brought it back to our condo. Both orders were excellent.

“Disappointing return”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

We ate here during our 2011 vacation and enjoyed it. We returned for lunch on Thanksgiving Day and were disappointed. We were seated immediately but service was extremely slow, probably due to lack of servers. I counted 2 servers taking care of all tables both inside the restaurant and on the patio. It took quite a while to take our order and even longer to get our food to us. When we got it, it was lukewarm. Given the number of similar options in Perdido Key, I'm not sure we'll return.
