The service was very good and the crab cakes were the best that I have eaten in a long time!! My visit was on a Sunday and there was no waiting to be seated.

If you're in the area of Ocean City, NJ this restaurant is a must! Lunch or dinner, you're gonna have a wait, but it's worth it!! Food is perfect and staff excellent! Crab or lobster bisque are favorites along with the best crab imperial you've ever tasted!!

We picked the right night to go, the day before thanksgiving as there was no waiting. Locals tell me that there is usually a line. Enough of that The Crab Trap is beautifully appointed, we were seated near the fireplace in the middle of the dinning room. As far as the food goes it was good, well presented and timely.... More

the crab traps setting is wonderful. a beautiful nautical relaxing atmosphere. a little tight but still comfortable. if you do not like to eat early you are going to wait. the early bird menu 3p=5p. excellent selection and hardy quantities. our waitress was not very familiar with the liquor selections at the bar, or in some cases old time drinks....

We ordered a few appetizers and drinks last Saturday night. We thought everything was pretty good maybe a little overrated but overall everything was pretty good. I wouldn't be a rush to go back.

The positives - Staff is friendly and service is good. Portions are a good size and include rolls and salad. The clams casino are the best we've ever had!!! I also recommend the crab bisque. We've been coming here for years and we've never had a bad meal! Prices are reasonable. The negatives - This is a busy place, so... More

Atmosphere was great. Crab bisque is advertised as legendary, and that claim is true. Service was great. All four of us had a great lunch. This was our second trip and we will have lunch there every time we are in AC.

Crab Trap is generally our favorite restaurant, and have NEVER had a complaint about food or service until tonight. I didn't enjoy my dinner, but everyone else did (no prob) I didn't want to send it back or have it taken off the bill (although it was). Soon as plates were cleared we were presented the bill...we were there for... More
