We were visiting New Hampshire for a birthday celebration and stumbled upon the lobster trap which have amazing lobster scampi such as I've never had in Rhode Island! The staff was so friendly you felt like family! Can't wait to go back soon!

The Lobster Trap offers a cozy atmosphere combined with excellent service and great food. The gluten free options are better than most restaurants and the lobster is some of the best that I have ever had. The staff are some of the nicest people and we had a wonderful family dinner because of them! Thank you Lobster Trap. We will... More

Went there during Holiday week with our 3 hungry teenagers. Everyone was happy and full. Chicken parm, shrimp Parma were good. Great lobster stew which was not-overlooked lobster in butter and cream. Great appetizer of bacon wrapped scallops. Too full for dessert.

took a chance and stopped here while headed back to our hotel. Not being from the area we had no idea what to expect. We were greeted by a friendly server who led us to a table in an unassuming dining room. Once there we struck up a conversation with out waitress and we were glad we did. She suggested... More

An informal family restaurant with a friendly staff and good food. It is away from the hustle and bustle of North Conway. It wasn't crowded when we were there. Seemed to have a number of local diners.

I had the fried haddock special which came with a cup of chowder, fries and Cole slaw for $12.00. It was cooked perfectly and the sides were excellent. I have live in New England my entire life and this was done just right!! Service was good too.

We spent over a week in the North Conway area in mid-October 2016. One evening we were interested in having seafood and my wife's internet search resulted in a few places and she chose the Lobster Trap. It was a short drive from our hotel in North Conway. The Lobster Trap is moderately priced, seats a large number of people,... More
