Reviewed 9 May 2017 via mobile

We have been to TheCrab Trap many times, and almost always enjoy their fried, grilled or boiled seafood. They no longer serve beer, but do allow you to bring your own.
The restaurant is sort of rustic with indoor, outdoor on screened porch seating.
The service has always been great & the food is consistently good!

This restaurant if you can even call it that, is nothing more than a tourist trap. There are very few places to eat in Sargent Texas and this place has capitalized on this misfortune. Overpriced, greasy food that is defended by the wait staff, poor choices and overall gross atmosphere. Hamburger was the only saving grace, even though it had to be made over because the kitchen "just automatically put cheese on the burgers".
There are just not enough words to describe the degree of feeling ripped off on our visit recently. Please see the pictures to describe to degree of grease and poor cooking.

If you just want good food and don't mind a busy, noisy atmosphere The Crab Trap is the place to go. We like dining on the outside porch but we're fisher people. The burgers are awesome and so is the fried shrimp. We frequent this restaurant about once a month. Enjoy!

Nice and friendly staff, helpful, and most of all pleasant! Stuffed jalapeños were delicious, had heard about them through a review so just had to try. Mother had crap cakes and really enjoyed them. I had to have the blacked catfish, it was to die for, I'll tell ya! When they say it's a gem of a place, they mean it....! Well worth the drive for sure. Going to have to go back and try their breakfast, can't wait.....!

This is the best restaurant in Sargent!!! They are super friendly and had an awesome staff. There is a variety of awesome food that's to die for. I'm been here almost every other weekend for the last 4 years.
