Crab Trap Restaurant
Somers Point, NJ
If your craving for fresh seafood and you reside in NJ or are an out of town vacationer, you must visit the Crab Trap of Somers Point, NJ. It is in my estimation the freshess seafood I've had in a long time. You see my family and relatives come to Ocean City every year. It's a family resort. Other than the typical boardwalk food, this is the place to go after a full day at the beach. Dinner time is the best. But beware, the restaurant doesn't except reservations. So, if your planning to go to dinner at 6 PM, you need to arrive at the restaurant at 4 PM. There is plenty of seating outside and you can take a menu to check out all the goodies. Here is what we ordered and tried and highly recommend:
Clams on the 1/2 shell. Fresh top neck clams shucked fresh, plump clam with a taste of the sea.
Clams Casino: Whole clams topped with peppers and onion with a touch of wine and butter.
Stuffed shrimp. Giant shrimp stuffed with a delicious crab meat stuffing.
Whole Maine Lobster; Steamed perfectly
Of course they do have steak and even at medium, there is a slight of pink that so tender and juicy.
The atmosphere is quaint and the staff is professional. This year we were a party of 21 and the staff served us in a professional and friendly manner.
We've been going there for the last 6 years and every time was pleasurable.
Now after Labor Day, the hours have been reduced and the restaurant closes at 3 PM.
I highly recommend this restaurant if your looking for good fresh seafood.
