We have the privilege of serving the best guests on earth. Your unwavering support, generosity, and kindness, motivates us to wake up everyday and try our hardest.

We’ve got the best team in the industry. Everyday they show up, high energy, positive attitude, work hard, long days, smiling and laughing the whole time.

When you walk into the Trap, your day instantly gets better. Look around the dining room. Everyone’s smiling, laughing, enjoying each other’s company, blowing off steam from a tough day at the office, or celebrating a momentous occasion. That’s why we do this, to make people happy.

The severity of the global covid-19 pandemic is compounding by the day. I’m seeing a shift in my team and guests attitude. They’re concerned, worried, scared of the unknown. Although these feelings are real, I do know we will get through this, and be stronger in the end.

My commitment to our team and our Cape community is unwavering. Although we want to be here to continue serving you, it is in the best interest for the well being, safety, and longevity of our guests and team to temporarily close.

We will use this time to work on recipes, make repairs, and prepare to better serve you when the time is right. We look forward to seeing you soon on the deck, double fisted, with a painkiller, taco, and a big smile. Thank you for your continued support, trust, and belief in what we do.

Lobster Trap was founded in 1969 as a neighborhood fish market on the Back River in Bourne. Over time, we have evolved to include a restaurant, catering, and a distribution company which services restaurants and markets world wide. Times change, but our mission has remained the same. We are committed to providing guests with the best possible products we can source, prepared with care and served with pride. After all, this isn't just a job for us, its a way of life. Now eat, drink, enjoy!
