We ate at the Lobster Trap three times over a two night stay. Loved the lobster! I should have taken a picture of my dinner! Staff very accommodating.

The buffalo burger was not fantastic. It tasted very bland. One of the least impressive burgers I've ever had. The clam chowder was pretty great though, and they give you a lot of it (when ordered to go). The employees aren't super attentive and the girl that helped us seemed kind of dishelved, like she was confused at the fact that we were there.

The food and service were impeccable. The lobster was so fresh it melted in my mouth. The waiter was so kind and gave us such a great history of the island. Will definitely return.

Wonderful lobster dinner, crisp salads. It was just around the corner from our B&B local folks- great we'll be back.

Our family of 8 adults ate in this restaurant 3 times over a period of 10 days. However, we also wanted to grill our own fish while staying on the island. The Lobster Trap was the only place on Catalina Island where we could buy fresh fish that we could take home and fix ourselves (other than Von's packaged fish filets). The restaurant itself was quite good and very reasonably priced in comparison to three other restaurants that we also visited. The fish we bought fresh to fix ourselves was "very fresh" and priced for two pieces rather than by the pound. Each piece provided an ample serving for one adult. The cost of 2 pieces ranged from $14 - $23 depending on the type of fish. This restaurant had the most friendly and helpful staff of all the restaurants we visited on Catalina. It is very casual and OK for families as well as couples just wanting to eat at the bar.
