In the heart of downtown Asheville
The Lobster Trap serves fresh, sustainably-sourced seafood including wicked good Maine lobsters, a ship ton of oysters, steamed clams, seafood bisques, chowders, and more – all in a cozy, friendly atmosphere.
We invite you to join us in a celebration of seafood. Raise a glass, crack a claw, shuck a shell, and lift a fork to the best that our domestic oceans, rivers and lakes have to offer.The Lobster Trap Story
A Leader in Seafood Sustainability
To truly love seafood is to also love the sea – and that means taking care of our aquatic ecosystems. We’re proud to partner with both the James Beard Foundation’s national Smart Catch program and the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program to ensure quality, fresh seafood can be enjoyed for generations to come.More on Sustainable Seafood
