Our friends had recommended the Crab Trap and we were pleased with the dining experience. There was a wait at dinner, but that is to be expected durning the tourist season. The service was good and the food was great! I'm looking forward to my next visit to the island and we have all ready made plans to return.

They have the best fried seafood and battered fries. The crab legs are always good here too. Service was great. Don't let the crowd scare you away because service has always been quick.

We went with friends that had never been to the Crab Trap, they were not impressed at all. The crab soup was the best dish last night. We have been there many times before and have had much better food. I had the Fried Oysters and Blackened Scallops for $24.95. There were six oysters and four scallops. The oysters, hushpuppies...

We had a great experience at The Crap Trap on my birthday weekend! I will say that the first time I went there (a few years ago), I did not enjoy the experience as much but decided to give it a second chance. I'm so glad I did! The food was delicious, the prices appropriate, and the ambiance was calm... More

The Crab Trap is a little off the beaten path, but a nice quaint venue. We had the Crab soup, which was recommended by the bartender. It was absolutely delicious! I even got a quart to take back home.

We had what we love - fried shrimp & oysters with hushpuppies, slaw and battered fries. How many places can you get battered fries. Food was freshly prepared and delivered promptly.
