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!"

The art work inside is like no other! My boyfriend and I love to stroll around in here while waiting for a table at mangrove mikes! The art work is beautiful but can be quite pricy! We love to see what new pieces they keep adding!

I have purchased several pieces of art and had custom work completed. They are a quality professional business.

We really enjoyed chatting with the artist and folks who run the store. We bought several funky fish and a colorful clock.

Really enjoyed stopping in here and buying souvenirs for my family. The small frames are a perfect gift, without being an expected trinket.

I am not much for souvenirs, particularly from places I visit often like the keys, but this was a must have for me. I Love My New Frame! It was so hard to pick the right one, because they are all so cool and unique. I recommend stopping by, if even to just check them out!

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.
