The Lobster Trap

Founded in 2005, The Lobster Trap is an Asheville institution, bringing the highest-quality sustainable seafood from the ocean to the mountains. Inspired by the friendly atmosphere of a New England backyard lobster bake, the restaurant has sourced its lobsters from the same Maine-based crew since its founding. The Lobster Trap offers a dining experience unlike any other in Western North Carolina thanks to its classic menu featuring favorites like surf and turf, clambakes, chilled seafood towers, crab cakes and more.
