Absolutely lovely experience at The Trap tonight. They were very busy and still very accommodating. In fact they encouraged me to order more and were excited for me to be able to try anything on the menu! They also told me they have a special spot on the grill for my sandwich. I had shrimp cocktail and a pesto chicken sandwich and a couple spoonfuls of my boyfriend’s chowder. Everything was awesome! For big seafood lovers- you can have a lobster roll and fried seafood there! And, the view from their deck is SO beautiful. I felt really spoiled tonight- and loved it!

So excited to be able to have a safe, gluten free lobster roll! Delicious food and beautiful setting. Many gluten free options and a dedicated frier (apparently all of their fried foods are naturally gluten free). Amazing and will be back again!

Incredibly conscientious regarding my son’s wheat allergy, as well as his other nut allergies. Happily discussed every single ingredient and they have a special process of preparing GF sandwiches on their own clean surface when you let them know if cross contamination is a concern. He had the GF lobster roll and Haddock chowder. I had the GF crab cakes and GF fried oyster sandwich. Amazing food and admirable care for their customers with allergies. Could not have asked for more!!!

Just wow. Amazing food and amazing view. Lobster roll comes on toasted bread but perfectly cooked and great flavor. What was utterly amazing was the calamari. Their small plates were all GF and I was asked if GF was a preference or allergy. When I said I was celiac they assured me they would take special care. We tried the crab cakes and calamari to start and while the crab cakes were delicious the calamari was out of this world. Tender and full of flavor. Not your traditional calamari you dip in marinara. They Tass it in their own sauce that is a balsamic vinegar base. Owner came out and spoke to us several times to check on things.

On top of great food we had a beautiful ocean view that made the whole experience just wonderful.

Great lunch option for Celiac! We ate outside in the back of the restaurant overlooking the ocean. The food was delicious! Items were marked gluten free on the menu. We had the fried oyster lettuce cups, friend calamari and friend shrimp. All tasty and different than the average fried seafood recipe. Gluten free buns available for sandwiches, although we didn’t try any sandwiches. Best thing, no one got sick LSO they do take cross contamination seriously.

A really beautiful setting overlooking the ocean. A lovely little town to walk around. They were super helpful in telling me what was gluten free. I had the lobster melt sandwich and it was great. I didn’t ask about GF beer availability because we were having an early lunch and hiking.

Completely gluten free fryer!

I got the balsamic fried calamari...oh my goodness!!! SO yummy, and not too heavy of a meal. No French fries, but still so worth it! I also enjoyed the Citizen hard cider!

Seating right on the water!

I strolled into The Trap today right after leaving the Footbridge Lobster shack very disappointed. Advertised all over trip advisor and you tube, I expected FBL to be amazing but what a let down. Not only that, The Foot Bridge Lobster has no gf options at all. If you walk right around the corner to the left there is a little piece of heaven named, The Trap. The owner is a doll and is so hospitable. Everything is gf including the fryers. I had home made chowder and a gf Lobster roll. The chowder was delicious and filled with fresh clams. My Lobster roll was filled with giant chunks of lobster and the warm toasted buttery bread was just right. My sandwich was stuffed with so much lobster meat I bet they used an entire lobster. I said to my boyfriend halfway through my sandwich with a bite still in my mouth, “ this is the best sandwich I’ve ever had!” I will be returning to The trap on my way home to snag another Lobster roll tomorrow.

This restaurant is amazing...almost everything is available gluten free and whether you are GF or not, the food is out of this world. April (the owner) is a nurse and really gets it. She took great care of our whole group and was just a wonderful person and host as well as providing exceptional food at a great price. The only thing as good as the food was the view! I can’t wait to go back!!!!
