Reviewed 14 March 2012

I had to try the lobster roll. Kind of pricey, but very good. Husband had alfrado, kids had halibut taco and clam chowder. Great chowder!

“Owner was hands on....”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

The owner was hands on. Fresh lobster caught by the owner. Down to earth atmosphere, made you feel at they wanted your business. We split a lobster dinner, both plates were large proportions of food including the lobster.

“Excellent place for seafood tacos.”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

Went to the Trap for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Dion was our waiter. Food was good and Dion was an excellent host. Had lobster, swordfish and shrimp tacos. Clam chowder was also excellent. Don't let the bar appearance fool you!
