    Sit outside and kids can play on the playground while you wait for your food. They also get a bucket and shovel to play in the sand.

    A friend brought me here for lunch and I must say I was very surprised. The crab dip is very creamy and I like that they serve pita chips with it. My shrimp po boy was excellent.

    After being seated it did not take our waitress very long to take our drink order or deliver them and take our order. I have to say that I had the best blacken mahi mahi and island shrimp.

    I have always enjoyed the Crab Trap, today was no different. They have the best crab dip and the people who work there are always friendly. I have learned to go early because it gets really busy.

    Food was excellent. The crab claws are the best. Our waitress was always smiling and very helpful. The atmosphere was great, which is perfect for us as we had 2 small children.

    We sat at the oyster bar and had fun with the server, while he worked. The oysters were fantastic and the grouper bacon ranch sandwich was great.

    Stopped in a dinner and I am glad we did. The crab dip and the gumbo were great. Our dinners took a little long but they were worth the wait. The mahi mahi was cooked to perfection.

    The day was beautiful and the deck seating made our lunch very appealing, the sea air while eating our Po Boy’s brought back memories of our childhood.

  • Anthony C.

    I had a grouper sandwich today and I think it is even better than the shrimp Po Boy.

    The amberjack grilled is very good, but I wish it had more seasoning on it, my husband says it’s wonderful the way it is. We do agree that the gumbo is wonderful and full of flavor.
