The Lobster Trap Art Gallery is a unique gallery full of colorful art from Nadine and Glenn Lahti and other local artists from the Florida Keys. Our artists have created hundreds of original works and our frame shop has constructed thousands of hand built and custom lobster trap frames, made from original lobster trap wood, since 2003. With bright tropical colors and island music playing, come see why this gallery is the epitome of "Island Life". Visit our website to see our online gallery and do more shopping. You don't have to live on the islands to lead the "Island Lifestyle!"

Eclectic mix of local artistry and tchotchke. Some local artists with unique offerings. Other items are typical and can be purchased anywhere else. But who else has a giant lobster?

The artwork is colorful and the framing is rustic and unique to the Florida keys. The staff are friendly, helpful and informative. You can arrange to ship the art from there and be advised that pieces of average size are quite heavy.

Was very excited to go here but didn't find anything I loved. The lobster trap frames look kind of gross to me. I want to scrape off the barnacles. Fun to look though.

Nice selection of nautical artwork and touristy gifts including Christmas ornaments and jewelry. You can eat at Mangrove Mike's afterwards. They are hooked together.

Purchased an authentic Keys Lighthouse piece for my mother. I could have purchased so much more!! The staff was helpful with suggestions and helping me decide which one to choose and even offered to switch frames to make it perfect!

Largely primitive and folk art by local artists. Interesting but limited selection -- same images in assorted formats and sizes. Overpriced when you realize you're buying 1 of 1000+. But some of it's okay.

The art work inside is like no other! My boyfriend and I love to stroll around in here while waiting for a table at mangrove mikes! The art work is beautiful but can be quite pricy! We love to see what new pieces they keep adding!

I have purchased several pieces of art and had custom work completed. They are a quality professional business.

We really enjoyed chatting with the artist and folks who run the store. We bought several funky fish and a colorful clock.

Really enjoyed stopping in here and buying souvenirs for my family. The small frames are a perfect gift, without being an expected trinket.
