By far the most expensive restaurant my posse of 17 visited in our stay in Manila be prepared to spend. Service- Very good, they were kind enough to guide us through ordering and gave us running tabs. They were also good with kids and crab-crusher novices. Ambience - American lobster shack chic circa 80's...as usual.. Parking- It's BGC. So yes.... More

For the BGC branch, the restaurant is quite spacious but the seats are not so comfortable. Service was fast enough and food was hot when served. Music was too loud but when we asked that volume be lowered, they readily acquiesced. Usually there is only one big crab per order but the shrimps were plentiful. Make sure to order the... More

I'm reviewing the branch in BGC. The crab is tasteless and a bit expensive. It was big but the meat is not full. The taste was blanch. Nothing compared to other crab place. Service is good though but I was hoping for a great food.

The dishes are in generous servings. Seafood and meat are the main stable dishes particularly grilled. Best for family and friends to share and dine.

Clawdaddy's is popular for their crab menu. Crab marites is my favorite there. If youre not a crab person, there are variety to choose from. We liked most of what we have ordered except for the shell fish. We thought its not worth the price. The ambiance is ok. A little noisy but then at that time, most of the... More

Expect to be a bit dissapointed. The Singaporean crab and all other offered were way too oily and taste bareable. The calamari was preety chewing gum, the garlic butter shrimp was buttered (too oily), and the garlic rice was a distasteful garlic oily rice. The location is good as it is at the beginning of bonifacio high street and the... More

I have never eaten whole crab in a restaurant before so I was extremely excited about going to Clawdaddy's and trying one of their specialties. We were greeted by a very friendly waiter who showed us to our table and took our order. We ordered the Clam Chowder, The Singaporean Chili Crab and The Salt and Pepper Crab. We were... More

If you're planning to order some shakes be ready! They're huge! :) The food was surprisingly good. Tried it for the 1st time & there was no customer so we were a bit skeptical. Got the ribs. I think the menu needs a few more items though. There's not much choice.

Ordered four cheese macaroni, herb roasted chicken, backribs...nothing fancy. Not so big portions either. Perhaps one should order their specialty of the house (crabs) to be really amazed. I find it expensive for such "ordinary" taste.
