Great drinks, gracious host, fine conversation, excellent tunes (can't beat "Hotel California" for starters) . Had eaten elsewhere but will definitely be stopping here next time. My wife, a BVI'er, raves about their great lobster.

the service was good, the food was great and it was all reasonably priced. Probably the best priced lobster on the island. At last a great sized portion of vegetables all perfectly cooked. Great meal, lovely ambience.

Our group of 8 had dinner at The Lobster Trap when sailing in the BVI. The restaurants at Anegada request that orders be placed in advance as the food is then gathered and prepared. We absolutely loved this restaurant. The ambience was lovely, the staff so very friendly and hard working to make sure that everything was perfect and prices... More

We were staying at the Anegada Beach Club and the chef, Phillip cooks for both venues...so we weren't quite sure we "needed" to try the Lobster Trap - glad we did! The menu is different and Phillip is a talented chef. My husband and I had a delicious meal...his lobster fra diablo was a "10" truly one of the best... More

We walked by and couldn't help notice what a great job they have done to revitalize this place. So impressed that we came back for dinner. Love the service and food is delish. Nichole took great care of us. She's a hard worker. Well worth the visit.

Many kudos to the chef, Gwen. The lobster was outstanding! We had the lovely fortune of having a romantic dinner outdoors with only one other couple at the restaurant. Felt like it was out of a movie as we saw the sunset and enjoyed our meal. Had the key lime pie as well, yummy!!

We called in from our sailboat once we had anchored in Anegada Harbor, and also requested a ride to the Anegada Beach Resort, which they arranged. After a day on the beach, our lobster dinners were amazing, with smoky flavor infusing the meat. The pork ribs were some of the best we had ever had, and the coconut shrimp was... More

We sat on the deck overlooking the water. If you eat lobster, you need to pre-order because it's fresh. Wellllll, although it was scrumptious, none of us ate all of our food. There were 11 of us and most of us ordered lobster. Should have shared 1 per 2 people. They were HUGE! The good news was that we were... More

The Lobster Trap can handle large groups and provide very tasty meals. A good choice of wines to have with your meals. Don't forget to use your bug spray!! Once the food arrives (very tasty!), it draws the mosquitoes and biting bugs. You will not want to dilly-dally after your meal, a small price to pay for a very scrumptious... More

My wife and I loved this quaint little restaurant overlooking the harbour. We sat on the pier just off the beach and had an exquisite seafood platter for two. It wasn't too expensive or too showy but great food in a clean, friendly location under the stars.
