Found on the ”lost island“ of Perdido Key, Florida, The Crab Trap, Perdido is a funky, fun, fishhouse on the Gulf of Mexico. With a boardwalk leading directly down to the sparkling white sand and crystal clear water, The Crab Trap is a great spot for a casual lunch, intimate night out or a family day on the water.
The only reason I gave 4 Stars instead of 5 was the price. I got a wonderful Grilled Mahi Mahi Filet, fries, coleslaw, hush puppies and a Endless glass of delicious Sweet Tea for about 21.00. The view is awesome. The staff was courteous and efficient. The manager and our waitress did all they could do to accomadate our large group. I was very pleased and so was my palate.
We stopped by here for lunch last weekend. The inside of the restaurant is full old pictures and antique fishing gear. All of the tables and chairs are made from old planks. We got a dozen oysters, crab dip and buffalo shrimp for our appetizers. The oysters and crab dip was fantastic but the buffalo shrimp was not very spicy. The appetizers pretty much filled me up. For the main course I had a blackened amberjack sandwich with fries. They went a little overboard with the blacking but over all the meal was great.
We have been to the crab trap the last 2 years, this year it was horrible. I had popcorn shrimp and they tasted like rubber. The hush puppies were hard as a rock. The Crab cakes tasted fake, to much filling, couldn't taste any crab.... I left my comment card. For a $73 lunch for 6 it was horrible..... This place has gone down hill since last year.
My husband and I, while on vacation and looking for a good, fresh seafood lunch read some reviews for the Guld Shores area and read that the Crab Trap was highly favored. We thought we would check it out.
Upon entering the parking area, you could see the beach and smell the water. It was pleasant. The quaint, outside decor was well dressed. As we entered the interior, the place was pleasing to the eye, clean and a friendly staff. The interior decor was fitting of a seaside eatery.
We were seated and our waitress promptly attended to our drinks and gave some good suggestions for lunch. I told her my fear of trying new things. I'm a huge burger fan, and rarely try anything with fish. She suggested the mahi mahi blackened sandwhich. I asked a few questions, and finally gave in and ordered it. My husband decided on a lunch special of stuffed grouper.
As we were waiting on our order, the couple seated behind us received their appetizer, my husband and I were a little jealous. They had gotten the the buffalo shrimp. It looked and smelt yummy.
Our order arrived and I was skeptical so I pinched off a small bite, as my husband watched, knowing of my fish fears, I went ahead and placed it in my mouth... It was good! I took another small bite, yumm!! I gave him a sample and he too was pleased with the fish. His grouper, while unexpected with a cream sauce, was also very good.
The tartar sauce was an excellent condiment. It had a bit of a kick to it and very savory. I loved the fries and used the extra tartar sauce as a dip,
My husband and I both enjoyed the atmosphere, food and service. Bravo!!
Had lunch here and the scenery was very beautiful. They seemed to sit everyone at the windows to overlook the bay. The food was excellent and staff very courtious. We are sure to make this a regular spot to eat.
It's a tradition to eat here the first day we get to the beach. Wonderful food; great drinks; blackened amber jack and mahi mahi are excellent!
Can't beat the scenery and the outdoor playground area and outdoor seating are top notch. A MUST SEE when you're there!
