Introducing the finest crab bisque soup in Atlantic County, New Jersey area.

It is creamy rich and loaded with lump crabmeat. It bursts with delicious flavor in every bite.

It is available at The Crab Trap Restaurant in Somers Point, New Jersey.

They take great care in the preparation and you almost never have a shell within their crab bisque.

You can get a small or large bowl.

The crab bisque soup is so good that it remains the only item that you can call The Crab Trap and get it to go.

They no longer have takeout service. They did a fabulous takeout business during the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Friday, December 15, 2023, I enjoyed following items (see below); including, the crab bisque soup, crab bites and stewed tomatoes.


The fresh, piping hot rolls are also such a wonderful treat.

The soup and crab bites are considered appetizers on the menu, however, I build it right into a perfect and satisfying meal.

There are other great crab bisque, crab soup, seafood soups and chowders throughout the Atlantic City area.

For example, Resorts Casino Hotel has a tremendous seafood chowder (see below):

Susan Judith picks Dock's Oyster House (in Atlantic City) and their corn and crab soup.

Steve Petti says that “The Clam Bar in Somers Point has the best Crab and corn chowder.”

Julie Catherine told us about Vagabond Kitchen & Tap House has CRAB & SWEET CORNCHOWDER: New England style crab and sweet Jersey corn chowder. It used to be on the special menu, but, it’s so good that it is now on the permanent menu.

Amy Funk Jackson - picked four … Back Bay Ale House, Vagabond, Docks Oyster House. Knife & Fork Inn.

Dan Greenberg has his own South Jersey Smoke House, Margate. His soup is crab and corn chowder. “It's got more crab in it than should be allowed. It's also loaded with butter, milk, half and half, and some spices,” said Greenberg.

Here is a look at Dan Greenberg’s crab and corn chowder:

We are so very fortunate to have a great number of both casino and non-casino restaurants in the Atlantic City area.

I hope that you enjoyed our look at some of the finest crab soups in the Atlantic City area.

Bon appétit.
