Tucked away on Florida's Scenic Highway 98, The Crab Trap Destin is a staple in the lives of both tourist and locals.

Have picky eaters to please? The Crab Trap is ready for you with a menu just for kids, crayons, a special treat they get to keep.
If you're at the beach in Destin and need a bite to eat, the Crab Trap isn't the worst place you could try.
I've been for both lunch and dinner recently (in the past week). Lunch was better than dinner... less of a crowd, and much more reasonable prices for their fare. The wait tonight for a party of 4 was 1:45!
The views of the beach and ocean are fantastic when the windows are open and a light breeze blows through. Tonight was very windy and misty, so the windows were closed (thank goodness, as it was quite chilly out).
The prices on their lunch menu are typical vacation spot prices for a reasonable amount of food. Their dinner menu is the same as the lunch menu with higher prices. LAME! It's the same portion size, same presentation, but it's more expensive...
Bottom Line: A pretty good seafood place if you're in Destin. It's very convenient if you're looking to hit the beach before/after your meal. Expect to wait for a long time if you're going for dinner (Especially a Weekend Night!). Lunch is your best bet.
This place has made the short list of restaurants that my husband and I go to every year while vacationing in Destin. It is the place to get your crab leg fix!! The service is great, the view is awesome, and understandably there is often a long wait. The prices are good for Destin seafood and kid friendly as well.
Recently had lunch here. Had the shrimp PoBoy which was awful! Terrible bread, few small shrimp. Also had the gumbo which probably would not be allowed to be called gumbo in louisiana! Like I sais, great view but go someplace else for the food.
We had a soft shell crab poor boy which was perfectly cooked and crispy. Could have used some more seasoning. Also the bread was all wrong... it clearly disappeared as you bit into it. Just a really poor choice for a good crab. Could have used some air conditioning, too, but then it was August.
the waitress was well, CRABy. no refills. no table check ups.
The shrimp i got was GROSS!!! I had to stop eating it for fear i'd get sick.
Hubby got same thing, but less shrimp than me. And it tasted better.
Atmosphere was ok. kindof loud. things weren't as clean as they should have been. It was nice to have the windows open and the breeze coming in.
Prices were to high for amount and quality of food.
the rasberry lemonade was yummy.
thats about it
