Wonderful server (Kyle). Talked us into a couple of margaritas (not a hard sell :), Had the scallops with the root vegetable risotto perfectly done. One happy gal. Definitely will be back. Reasonably priced.

Bopped into The Lobster Trap on our way home from Provincetown during a winter snow storm for lunch and got the best BLT lobster roll ever!!

Food was really good but a little pricey. The place is really nice and inviting. However, the building must be old because it was an ice box inside the restaurant. Did not make for a very comfortable valentine's day dinner. Maybe going in the summer would be better. Not as cold. Parking in front of the restaurant slim and additional... More

Busy, friendly local spot. Great food and atmosphere year round! Will be back for sure! Swordfish sandwich not to be missed, and definitely great chowder!

For three consecutive Sundays, my friend shared his brunch photo from The Lobster Trap, and finally we decided to go and give it a go when the old man and his wife came to their Cape place for the weekend. Now, I'm not really big on buffets because I have had some really bad ones, but If you go between... More

Looking for good fresh seafood this is the place to go. Great chowder, clams and scallops cooked to perfection. Best to arrive early, always crowded. Valet parking. On the banks of the Eel river in the Monument Beach section of Bourne. Good sunsets. Casual attire.

Nice casual atmosphere, on the water. Terrific fresh seafood. We enjoyed their clam chowder, and a lobster roll that was huge and delicious. Just a tiny bit of mayo, as it should be. Friendly service. Looking forward to going back!

We have eaten at the Lobster Trap dozens of times. It is definitely casual...go in your swim suit complete with sand from the beach. EVERYTHING is delicious. Personally, I choose the scallops, but the chowder is not to be missed, and my husband always gets the fish sandwich. Other friends have raved about the lobster, even the non-fish choices. And...

Love going here. Food is great! Lobster rolls, fried food, fish tacos, gourmet plates like my favorite, Pan seared scallops on root vegetable risotto with spinach. Nice Bar area and really nice outdoor seating when weather permits.

Family chose to gather here after a somber family service down the road at the National Cemetery. It did not take us long to embrace this place. Soon, everyone was laughing, sharing memories and enjoying excellent food. Part of our group was from out of state. The staff was friendly, recommended a great round of apps for "first timers".
