“Awesome food and great service!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

I live in Florida and was looking for a great seafood restaurant! For appetizers we ordered the clams casino and oysters rockefeller combination as well as the lobster puff and crabcake combo. All of which were very flavorful and done to perfection. Couldn't decide on which soup to try so our great server, Katie, suggested the soup sampler, which included three soups, all of which were terrific. I got the lobster tail and my friend ordered the broiled seafood combination. Everything couldn't have been better!!! Would highly recommend to others and would definitely return!!!

“Still Fantastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

As a repeat diner at Crab Trap, like many others, it is still simply great. Went last week for the "early bird" special (before 5pm). No wait time for a table. Prices are signifigantly cheaper than the dinner menu & portions are generous. They have increased their prices however. One thing I noted was a chilled shrimp plate (kids menu). Was $7.50 last year. Comes with 3 shrimp, cole slaw & potato salad. It now costs $11.00. Go with the fried shrimp for the kids, cheaper, good portions. I had the Seafood Cobb Salad ($12), delicous & a great deal.

“little overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Two for one special on mondays is not so different than the early bird special. You get more variety with the early menu. Regular menu is over priced compared to other restaurants. To me, 2 for 1 is not that good of a deal. I had seafood combo and it was not that much for me, as I have a small appetite.

“saturday lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

was in the ocean area and had lunch here. for an off season visit, it was busy and the parking lot crowded: a good sign. had fried sea scallops: tasty and perfectly done. my wife had the crab cake sandwich which was also very good. i like my cole slaw shreded, not chopped, thats a minor item.
would return if in the area again
