    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!!

    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!

    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.

    Weak drinks. Fries food with burnt aftertaste. Overpriced with servers who just don't seem to care very much.

    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.

    Don't buy drinks at beach bar. Very expensive and weak. Stick with beer.

    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.

    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.

    Fun place with the kids. Right on the beach for them to play while you wait with an outside bar. Can it get better that that?

    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.

    Very bad service. The sweet tea was nasty and the dr pepper tastes like dirty dish water. How can you mess that up?!?!?

    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

    If you want to ear something other than oysters, order to-go in restaurant & bring it down to beach bar.

    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.

    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.
