“Good Food”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Went there based on other reviews and it was just like how others rated. Got there on a Saturday just when they opened and the restaurant filled within 20 minutes. The New England clam chowder was not the creamy type but it was very good...lots ingredients in the soup. Husband had the shrimp and crab louie salad which he enjoyed very much. I tried the crab sandwich which was also good.

“Crab sandwich to make the drive worthwhile”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Stand in line for a few minutes to get one of the best crab sandwich in the half moon Bay Area. Gobs of crab on a crusty bread makes this sandwich worth the drive.

“great casual place for fish”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

This is the second time we have visited Barbara's Fishtrap. Always a little wait, but well worth it. Very casual with as many people seated as possible, inside seating as well as a closed in patio. The fish on the fish and chips platter was very moist and the coating was not heavy. We also tried the scallops and chips. The scallops were large and very tender-excellent. We will be back on our next trip to the area.

“Interesting”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

A café style, busy, inexpensive place to eat. Good seafood choice and really pleasant service and atmosphere. It is a bit basic décor and furniture so don't expect the ultimate in luxury. Fish platters were good but everything we had was deep fried. There were other menu items so chose carefully if fried fish is not for you.

Great food, enormous portions, and friendly staff. Just remember to bring cash, 'cause Barbara doesn't take credit cards :)
