As you can see this place is biker friendly, and why not considering it’s proximity to Deal’s Gap (the Dragon) and our featured route the Cherohala Skyway. Located in the small town of Tellico Plains, TN, the Crab Trap begs the question – seafood in the heart of Tennessee? Hey, for a state where you could come across sushi at a gas station, anything is possible.

While various types of crab dishes are what the Crab Trap is most noted for, you can also choose from other seafood and fresh water specialties like shrimp, grouper, scallops, clam strips, catfish, and trout. Live Florida blue crab and seasonal raw oysters are known to show up on the menu, too. That’s their golden shrimp and fries in the picture.grilledShrimpFries380

For meat lovers, there’s smoked brisket and pork smoked, served as platters or sandwiches. Be boring and order their burger. Then there’s their homemade noodle soups and signature Banana Split Pie.

Be warned, if you have the stomach for it, their Combo Platters offer all the way up to eight of your favorite items. See you in a week!
