Fresh oyster and seafood. But less boIled and mOre deep fried items. Large portions. Very friendly and attentive staff. Items are more like sport bar than a dining establishment. Decor are also a needing more tender care and upgrading.

This is a more expensive restaurant, but the Blackened Grouper Orleans is amazing. It is perfectly cooked, and the confetti rice (colored peppers) complements the dish. Worth a visit if you want to explore the Chef's specialties, and not the regular old fried stuff.

We are a late lunch here. I had crab cakes on top of fried green tomatoes. Was amazing!! The view was equally as good as the beach volleyball tournament was going on !

Expensive, reasonable food - small servings, unfriendly staff. All terms that I would associate with The Crab Trap and unfortunately all pretty negative. In fact, the only positive is that they had a great view over the beach from the outside area. Won't be returning.

First time visiting, food was pricey but kinda expected due to being on the water. I ordered the all you can eat crab legs and our waitress seemed to get annoyed when I asked for more! Don't offer all you can eat if you don't...More

I think they do. They also have early dining when entrees are significantly discounted.
