About Us

Open since the 1970's, The Nantucket Lobster Trap is a family owned and operated restaurant.  We are unique in that we offer live lobsters ranging from 1 to 5 pounds!  We are a seasonal restaurant.  During winter months we can be found out on the water harvesting Nantucket Bay Scallops,  "The Finest Kind!" Smaller than sea scallops, Nantucket Bays are  sweet delicacies that are sure to make you remember your visit. 


Not in the mood to go out?  We also offer specially packed lobster dinners to take to your boat, home or the beach with our "Meals on Keels" program.  


Make sure to try the Elbow Bender, our take on a classic rum punch, a local favorite since 1979!  


We appreciate a casual family atmosphere where you can come enjoy great seafood prepared simply, good drink, and specially selected live musical entertainment.  


We have multiple food trucks! One runs 7 days per week at Cisco Brewers while the others are available for private events.

Send us an inquiry!, We would love to hear from you!


Whether you have been coming here for years or looking for something new, come on down! Our friendly and committed staff will ensure you have a fantastic experience.
