Service was good. The food was very good. The best part was the fresh muffins served on the table and banana cream pie was delicious.

Just enjoyed an amazing lunch! We had the buffalo shrimp with bleu cheese cole slaw, the maryland crab soup, crab imperial and potato crusted salmon. Absolutely everything was delicious and the service from Jen was top notch. You cannot go wrong with The Crab Trap

This place always, always has a line because the food comes out piping hot & is good, old fashioned cooking. The problem is the service. Waitstaff not friendly, bartenders seem to only like the locals- with other delicious seafood restaurants nearby, I wouldn’t bother

No reservations. Go at off times and avoid weekends if you don't want to wait for a table.
