We have eaten at the Lobster Trap dozens of times. It is definitely casual...go in your swim suit complete with sand from the beach. EVERYTHING is delicious. Personally, I choose the scallops, but the chowder is not to be missed, and my husband always gets the fish sandwich. Other friends have raved about the lobster, even the non-fish choices. And...

Love going here. Food is great! Lobster rolls, fried food, fish tacos, gourmet plates like my favorite, Pan seared scallops on root vegetable risotto with spinach. Nice Bar area and really nice outdoor seating when weather permits.

Family chose to gather here after a somber family service down the road at the National Cemetery. It did not take us long to embrace this place. Soon, everyone was laughing, sharing memories and enjoying excellent food. Part of our group was from out of state. The staff was friendly, recommended a great round of apps for "first timers".

Dollar oysters. Crab cakes, ahi tuna on salad, grilled scallops have all been good. Nice wine list, and sangria. I'm local and try to go off-season, stick to the seafood for which it's known.

I came here on recommendation of the lobster rolls and I was very disappointed. It had some shells in the roll that I felt like a cracked a tooth on. My wife had the fish tacos that were good though.

Food was overall good until we found a fly in my son's mac and cheese. Needless to say everyone lost their appetite after that. Disappointing.

The service was great. The clam chowder was nothing to write home about but the Tuna Pad Thai was fantastic. We got their earlyand got seated right away....there was. Line when we left. The restaurant is very noisy though and lacks charm for the prices.

If you are a seafood junkie as I am you are always on the lookout for top quality, fresh options. Doesn't hurt that this restaurant also has a fish market and processing plant on the premises. A couple of dishes really stand out for me: Traditional lobster roll served on a grilled, buttered brioche roll and using chunk lobster claws... More

Great spot for lobster rolls. The soups are outstanding and the variety is very good. Everything is very, very good. The service, friendly atmosphere and food all are excellent.
