Every July for the past 20 years I make it a point to celebrate my birthday here. Even though the wait is long(and well worth it) you can sit back and relax at Crabby Jack's Bar off the bay. Once you get inside the service is always quick and friendly. Double up on the clam's casino and crab cakes. These are the absolute best anywhere. Make a special trip trust me you'll be back.

The Crab Trap Restaurant in Somers Point, NJ has terrific food including, of course, fresh seafood. If you go in the busy summer season expect a wait for dinner. This restaurant was especially accommodating for a large group after a funeral. While it is impossible to know how many or what to order, the staff worked with the family to provide a wonderful meal.

The Crab Trap is one of my favorite restaurants. The seafood is absolutely amazing and I would, honestly, recommend anything on the menu; it is all delicious. The atmosphere is cozy and it is nestled right on the bay. In the summer there is usually a pretty long wait for a table, especially on weekends, but it is totally worth it.

We've always had fantastic food and service here. We come here 5 or 6 times a year. Be prepared to wait for at least 30 minutes on the weekend in the winter and two hours in the summer. IMHO its not worth the wait in the summer time.\r

Pros: Excellent food, great service and plenty of parking.

Cons: Long wait time and can be VERY noisy.

There is no place else like it. Every time I am in the area, I always stop at The Crab Trap at least to grab a couple of Clams Casino orders, which is my favorite item on the menu.The atmosphere is upscale boating motif, and plants. They have two large dining rooms and several bars plus the Crabby Jacks on the pier overlooking the bay.When is the best time to get in there? Before the rest of the crowd. I find getting there at before 11;30 in the morning and right about 3:30 to 4:30 for dinner. Or if you are a late eater, 9:00. Sometimes there is a line lasting two hours for a table in this restaurant. If you have to wait that long, you came at the wrong time.

This restaurant sits off of the water, and has nice decor and really good service. The food is fresh and tastes great. It is a little more costly, but so worth the money. The portions are generous, and they also offer great dessert.

We love to go here during the winter, when the touriest go home and there is less of a crowd, but the food is so wonderful. This is a great place for a date or just to meet after work. You can eat at the bar, or get a table. They also have lunch and live music on the weekends.\r
Please enjoy this jewel of Somers Point.

The crab trap is the very best place to get seafood in the ocean city/atlantic city area!! I have been going there since I was a child and it has always been on my families list to go eat there! It's busy in the summer, but the wait is always worth it!!

The wait to get seated during summer weekends averages 45-60 min. The menu is heavy on fried or creamy based dishes. The drinks are good.

This was a great surprise. We were seates quickly on a busy Sunday evening about six after short stay in the bar of about ten minutes. Our meals were excellent, the drinks and selection of wines great. We felt very comfortable with the atmosphere and the wait staf. Our server was very polite , helpfull and efficant. The chefs have great imaginatio
This is the type of place where you don't even care about the bill, which was modest.
In every aspect this is a great restaurant that we will be comming back to for years to come.
