    The Crab Combo is perfect for 2 and is absolutely delicious. 1lb of snow crab and 1lb of king crab with red potatoes, corn on the cob, and hush puppies.

    Love coming here! It is a must when we are in or around Destin. The food is great and the prices are the same as anywhere else! The Crab Trap is one of our favorites!

    The key lime pie is PERFECTION. It's consistency is more along the lines of a custard, similar to a flan or crème brûlée, but if you love creamy desserts, you'll regret NOT ordering this.

    Our waitress was sweet, patient and friendly. The coconut shrimp was fabulous. The shrimp is caught locally and the dipping sauce was sweet and tangy.

    Whoever says the sweet tea is disgusting doesn't know how sweet tea should taste. We got the crab dip and liked it but the view is the best part!!

    Order to-go inside and carry your food out back to enjoy your meal sitting at the bar just across the dune line from the main beach. Read more

    One of Destin's best kept secrets! Delicious seafood with a beautiful beach location just far enough from the hustle and bustle of the strip.

    Gumbo great, as everyone says. The rest of the food is good and moderately priced and our service was exemplary.

    Go to Pompano Joe's if you want good seafood (only 1.5 miles away on the coast). Crab Trap's crab cakes were average, blackened jumbo shrimp was over seasoned. Calamari appetiser was the best bit.

    Someone left a tip for the blackened grouper sandwich, its actually called the bronzed grouper, and it was fantastic!! Highly recommended!!

    Soft shell crab sandwich! Good decent food. If you're looking for fancy, don't come here. If you want down home fried seafood, this is your place.

    The crab legs were cooked perfect but quite a bit on the salty side and three of my crab legs were completely empty with no meat. I got robbed. Food wasn't all that bad but I've had much better.

    As a floridian I can tell you that this place has mediocre over priced sea food. Service was good but you'll like "Back porch" better.
