Food was good, but I can get cheaper elsewhere. Had I wait a bit to get refills and the portions were small. The Key Lime Pie was the only dessert and for $6 I got a very small slice. The crust and whipped topping were store bought and the filling didn't even taste homemade.

I will not be back.

The view is great and I'm pretty sure they have remodeled since we were here 2 years ago. The spicy island fried shrimp appetizer was excellent. My husband loved the Cajun chicken pasta. He says, "it was AWSOME". I enjoyed the king crab legs at $45.00. My daughters food came in a little beach bucket with a shovel that she though was the coolest thing ever in a restaurant. The meal was $93.00 with no alcohol or tip included. Could have been a lot cheaper if I had chooses something besides king crab. We will return!

We stopped by for lunch along the Gulf. The view was great! My wife and I each had a lunch special. and I had the 29 cent gumbo too. The food was very good, especially the gumbo.

During a recent vacation in Destin we had lunch at the Crab Trap. I enjoyed the ocean view and friendly staff. My husband and I each ordered a lunch special. Paul had a 29 cent cup of gumbo and grouper. I had the drab cakes. Each order came with two sides. The food was good and we had fast service. Nice spot for a winter lunch.

We had dinner. The food was good. Although a little on the pricey side. Our waitress was very good and very pleasant.
