My wife and I were quite excited when we found this listed on Trip Advisor. The meal started off well with clam strips and oysters, but proceeded to take a dive off a cliff. We ordered the Italian Seafood Platter to share, and this is...More

My prices on lobsters were equivalent to a down payment on a new Porsche? That's a riot! I do apologize if your plate was missing scallops . I only use fresh scallops from Maine shellfish . Sometimes on a Sunday it's possible we run out....More

The food was good the clam chowder was great but we felt the lobster prices were a little high for being so close to the coast.

Chose this restaurant for an anniversary dinner... the proprietor was extremely friendly and helpful (my wife cannot eat wheat) and the local diners were so friendly and generous with their time and information. Loved the meal and the area and will definitely return.

Whenever we are in the area we stop here for dinner. The lobster pie was incredible! Food is fresh and well prepared. Staff are friendly. Can be busy so get there early. Great early bird specials.

We had a long wait to get our table at Lobster Trap because a large party was before us. Once we were seated, the service was fast and friendly. Our server was very sweet & apologetic about the long wait-treated us like royalty. The food...More

Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor, near Conway. Figured I'd give it a try. The scallops were lightly coated and sweet. The clam strips were so good. Portions were generous. Stop by if you're in the area.
