This is the best place to get lobster on the island.

An Unforgettable Meal

This great family restaurant offers lobsters from one-to four-plus pounds, suiting all shellfish-loving family members. They also offer a wide variety of non-seafood options, including burgers and pasta on their menu, as well as a classic kids menu, so it's great for everyone. We love their large outdoor patio seating for dinner in the summer. They offer lunch on rotating days, so check their website to see if they are open the day you're looking for lunch. They harvest all of their own scallops during the winter while the restaurant is closed! 

The Lobster Trap is less than a ten minute walk from the Children's Beach or a short drive from Jetties Beach. The Discovery Playground at Hinsdale Park is a quick ride from the restaurant too, and it's the best playground on the island. The Lobster Trap food truck can often be found at Cisco Brewery, so you can look for them there as well.
