Just OK. I mean, the dishes were pretty good, service was good, though the atmosphere & general well-kept look totally lacking. I realize it is not a high-end spot, just more of a local lobster & seafood joint, though still a bit on the trashy...More

When we pulled up to a bare parking lot we were unsure. But the service was good and the food was delicious! We would come back our next visit!

Had fried shrimp, haddock, scallops, and clams. Well done and tasty. Best scallops I’ve had. Had squash, coleslaw, and green beans that were all kinda bad. Good baked potato. Great entrees but sides need major work.

We always go to the Lobster Trap at least twice every summer. We enjoy their lobster and fried clams/scallops when we eat outside at the deck. Unfortunately sometimes in the evening mosquitoes force us inside, where a renovation is badly needed.

Came up here to visit my daughter and her boy friend and wanted whole lobster. I did well, my whole lobster was great. That was as far as it went. The clams were of poor quality being rubbery tasting and texture. Both of the entrees...More
