Great location. Crab deck is very nice. Prices are typical for local seafood. Waitstaff was very friendly. Meals were as described and fresh. Would recommend for groups.

Food is pretty typical for a touristy seafood bar. The service is not impressive, they are not able to keep up with the crowd and don't seem interested in doing so.

Our food was delicious. We sat outside on a lovely fall day. The service was great. The Mudslide was delicious too! Nice variety of food choices.

My first visit to the Crab Claw was in the spring of 1980 and my faint memories told me this was a place to return to. We had a large party and a seriously senior citizen in tow and the hostess put us in the...More
