We've lived in New England most of our lives, and consider ourselves experts on what constitutes good in seafood restaurants. This place is tiny bit difficult to find, but is tucked away on the back side of Wolfeboro Bay, has indoor and outdoor seating and they will even accommodate your pet at an outdoor table. Wolfetrap is very informal, very laid back, very comfortable and as a rule, the service is excellent. Fried clams are to die for here: crispy, juicy, fresh, and absolutely not greasy. Our other favorite food here is the Bouillibaisse, which is a very generous serving and includes wonderful garlic toast. The ingredients vary with what's fresh on any given day, but include shrimp, mussels, scallops, haddock or sole, and is served in a seafood/garlic/tomato base that is just delicious. More than enough food for two to share and save room for their great desserts. The bartenders are great here; make a wonderful and generous martini and the staff is usually warm and friendly. We also love their heavy duty, well made tee shirts, both long and short sleeved, in a rainbow of colors....just the ticket to warm your shoulders and arms on a cool summer night, lakeside. Please remember that this is a very busy town "in season" and without a reservation, you may have to wait a while for a table. We have personally witnessed potential customers abusing the staff because they were asked to wait to be seated; come on folks, it's a vacation town! Ratchet it down a notch and relax; this place is worth the wait.
