Twin boiled lobster dinner with the best onion rings ( house recipe) I've ever had! Super friendly waitress too. Very reasonable prices. Will go again when I'm in... More

took a chance and stopped here while headed back to our hotel. Not being from the area we had no idea what to expect. We were greeted by a friendly server who led us to a table in an unassuming dining room. Once there we struck up a conversation with out waitress and we were glad we did. She suggested... More

An informal family restaurant with a friendly staff and good food. It is away from the hustle and bustle of North Conway. It wasn't crowded when we were there. Seemed to have a number of local diners.

I had the fried haddock special which came with a cup of chowder, fries and Cole slaw for $12.00. It was cooked perfectly and the sides were excellent. I have live in New England my entire life and this was done just right!! Service was good too.

We spent over a week in the North Conway area in mid-October 2016. One evening we were interested in having seafood and my wife's internet search resulted in a few places and she chose the Lobster Trap. It was a short drive from our hotel in North Conway. The Lobster Trap is moderately priced, seats a large number of people,... More

Lobster roll could have had a little more lobster in it. I usually have to eat a lobster roll with a fork and knife because there is so much lobster overflowing its roll, not here which was a disappointment. Shrimp scampi was good. Service was slow, price was reasonable. Would I go back, maybe.

We avoid this place during the summer when it's always crowded. Now that tourist season is over until winter, we came back. The seafood is still very good. Very fresh.Very simple, actually they will cook anything to order. Prices are moderate(seafood has become very expensive!) Reliably good, although the early bird menu has disappeared.
