We enjoyed lunch here on a Saturday. Our food was very good and the service was incredible. Several of us had popcorn shrimp...they would have passed as full sized shrimp at any restaurant back home!

Have been to the Crab Trap many times over the last ten years. They have a great area outside for the kids. Every kid leaves with a small pail and shovel for the beach. Meals are fairly consistent with a wide variety of sea food...More

I believe they do. I know for sure they have a meat free salad. I think there is even a meat free appetizer. The meals now I can't remember, but I imagine they can customize something if asked. Hope this helps.
