The Crab Trap on St. Simons Island is a casual seafood restaurant that has been a favorite of locals and tourists alike for more than 45 years. We offer your choice of the finest local shrimp, scallops, oysters and fish all served with battered fries, hush puppies and coleslaw (salad, cheese grits, corn, baked potato, and veg of the day available upon request). We also offer fabulous tender beef filets, casseroles, creoles and chicken fingers. Last, but not least, our world famous crab soup continues to bring patrons back time after time.

After opening its doors in February 1975, The Crab Trap has remained a favorite island tradition for more than 45 years. This famous island landmark is still owned and operated by the original family. The Crab Trap offers a very nautical, casual and rustic atmosphere. It is known for its tables with "the hole" in the middle used for discarding your fresh oyster shells and shrimp tails. Diners continue to return time after time for our delicious and generous portions of fresh seafood served either fried, blackened, broiled or grilled.

A full service bar specializing in margaritas and our famous "Blue Crab" cocktail is also available to complete your dining experience.
