We were out looking at homes, and we were getting hungry, so we told the GPS what we wanted, and it took us here. So funny, because every time we pass this place, it is always SO busy, and we always say someday we are going to try that place. Well, that was the day. Wasn't quite sure what we... More

I stopped here for a quick lunch. I have driven by this place several times on my way to St Pete and Tampa. Outdated on the outside but nice on the inside and service is great. I had a chicken quesadilla and it was one of my best ever!

I have driven by this restaurant many times on my way to St. Pete or Tampa. Yesterday I decided to stop their for a quick lunch. I ordered a chicken quesadilla. Wow! This is the best one I have ever had. The place does not look like much on the outside but inside very nice with great fast service!

Strong rum runners, delicious crab soup, but SLOW service. Nothing fancy in here, but prices are decent.

When my wife and I vacation on Marco Island, we travel within south and central Florida for shopping or family activities and have found favorite restaurants in each of those areas. When we shop at Prime Outlets in Ellenton, FL., we have always had dinner at the Crab Trap II Restaurant, across I-75 from the outlet mall. This restaurant closed... More

The food is good but some portions are not very large for the price. They have changed hands in the past couple of years and the food is delicious. Just can't go there very often since a lot of the prices are high.

Every time we drive by the parking lot is packed, so we decided to stop and give it a whirl. We sat at a high top by the window close to the bar. The menu is seafood heavy. We tried the Grouper Sliders- EXCELLENT and I had the rice and bean "soup", not a soup but a side and WOW!... More

This place was a real delight. Excellent fresh seafood, reasonable prices and great service is about all you can ask. My wife and I both had sandwiches, the rest of our party had salads, sandwiches and entrees. Speaking for the 2 of us, my Oyster Po Boy, was exceptionally well made, my wife's Grouper sandwich was also excellent. A good... More

I had the fried battered jumbo shrimp and a friend had the fried battered fish, both of us for some reason the batter on the food was soggy. wife loved her scallops and another friend had the grouper and loved it. Also the crab soup was great. Just seems to be an issue with the fried food with the batter.
