Just had a great dinner at the Crab Trap. Arrived befor 2PM was seated within fifteen minutes. Their lunch menu is just a little smaller portion size than dinner. The fisherman platter was great. My wife had Potato crusted Salman which she loved. Both meals totaled $32.00.

We went for a Sunday dinner, without reservation, but we didn't need to wait. I was surprised how big the restaurant is. So many tables --- smaller ones... More
