The Lobster Trap Art Gallery is a unique gallery full of colorful art from Nadine and Glenn Lahti and other local artists from the Florida Keys. Our artists have created hundreds of original works and our frame shop has constructed thousands of hand built and custom lobster trap frames, made from original lobster trap wood, since 2003. With bright tropical colors and island music playing, come see why this gallery is the epitome of "Island Life". Visit our website to see our online gallery and do more shopping. You don't have to live on the islands to lead the "Island Lifestyle!"

It is a nice place to see local artist and their work. It does seem to be mostly the same man and wife's work.. A couple other artist were shown.

During this trip, we went back three times because you'll find the most unusual, beautiful, art. We ended up not only making purchases for ourselves, but also for friends and neighbors! The staff was extremely helpful, friendly, very knowledgeable of the art & its creators......we're sure to return on our next visit to the Keys!

Got a rum drink for $8 in a Dixie cup! When we asked the manager to check into it - he said "sorry that's what we serve rum in" Maybe he doesn't like travelers? Food is good, but place is dirty in my opinion.

First of all we do not sell rum drinks in our art gallery and gift shop. We do not sell food either. We are not a "rip off" but a well respected and unique gift shop and gallery that gets rave reviews from most people who come and visit us. I am sorry, but you put the review in the... More

We stopped in just to look. Very happy we did! Their artwork is made from used lobster traps. Very unique. You don't see a lot, if any, of this on Key West. Very happy with our purchase! Staff was friendly! Definitely worth a stop!

The place has a very helpful staff. There are beautiful photographs and paintings of Keys life. We bought a picture and it is being shipped. There lots of prints and frames to mix and match. Do drive by this place if you like Key's art.

Really did not find this shop worth looking at. The artwork was just ok. Not really interesting or unique. They seemed like nice people but we did not think much of the shop, nothing we would want to have in our home.
