“Very Good Food”
Reviewed October 12, 2009

We stopped in for dinner in October during leaf peeping. The clam chowder was very good, could have used a few more clams though. I did not care for the lobster stew, I guess its not my thing. The wife and I split a broiled seafood platter, and it was very good. Its a tad bit off the beaten path but not much. GPS got us very close. Service was pretty good. Would recommend.

“Tourist Unfriendly”
Reviewed September 30, 2009

Drove 30 mins to eat at the Lobster Trap. Arrived at 8:15 pm on a Weds. night and were told they were closing early. Waitress didn't seem to care.

“Very Good Food at Great Prices”
Reviewed July 7, 2009

I was traveling on the West Side Road in North Conway and passed by the restaurant at about 5:30 on Sunday. It was not much to look at, and is certainly off the beaten path, so I was surprised to see the parking lot about half full. We decided to give it a try. We got there on a Tuesday night at 5:30 and the place was around a third full. We ate off the regular menu and were pleasantly surprised by the large portions (enough to take home for a big third dinner). Service was excellent. We hit it again on July 4th at about 5:45. tried the "early bird" specials this time and were again surprised by the portion size. No leftovers, but we left full. By 6:30 the place was packed. Again, service was first rate.

“Plain surroundings but great seafood!”
Reviewed June 22, 2009

The Lobster Trap looks plain from the outside, but they put all their effort into the seafood, and it shows! It was a Saturday evening around 7:30 pm when we arrived, and the fact that there were very few cars in the lot made us a bit nervous. Still, there were a few customers dining, the place was clean and well kept, and we were seated immediately. Our waiter(who may have been one of the owners?) immediately brought us some warm rolls while we looked at the menu. We orderd scallops and bacon as an appetizer, and broiled scallops for me, a fried seafood platter for my husband. Both entrees were perfectly cooked- if scallops are just a tiny bit overcooked they are ruined, but they were tender and sweet, the breading was just enough, and everything was fresh.
