Favorite place at the beach

This is my favorite place to eat at the beach! The crabcakes are amazing and the all you can eat crab is always a great choice. We love coming here and the service is great.

My partner & I have always enjoyed going to happy hour at Claws when we visit Rehoboth 3-4 times per year.In fact, it is always a highlight of our trip. We always look forward to going and getting plate after plate of raw oysters, steamed clams and shrimp, and cheap [but good] beer for exceptionally reasonable prices. This past Saturday,... More

Fun family place to sit and enjoy picking crabs, drink a cold beer and get great service. We love going here for a family gathering or sit out on the porch and watch people on Rehoboth Ave.. Try their hushpuppies!!! Kid friendly....

This is my husband's favorite place ever in Rehoboth. We hit their happy hour for steamed clams every day we are in Rehoboth. Last year I think he ate 14 dozens over 3 days. It isn't the most vegetarian friendly option, but they do have yummy mac n cheese. I wish their beer selection was better, maybe some Dogfish Head.... More

The $17.99 lobster special came with two sides. The lobster was very good. I had the mac & cheese and the red potato salad, neither were anything special. My dining partner had the fries and hush puppies, which were better choices. The fries were skinny and that is my favorite kind. Service was good.

We sat at the bar and enjoyed $2 drafts, $5 house cocktails and an assortment of reasonably priced appetizers including oysters, shrimp and wings. Definitely a local establishment with good service. We would gladly return if back in the area.

It was a rainy Monday afternoon and many of the restaurants serving steamed crabs had either closed for the season or wouldn't open again until the weekend. We happened upon Claws during happy hour and found they had AYCE crabs for $29. They came with hushpuppies and corn on the cob. We also got steamed shrimp. We were served up... More

Have dined here several times and always enjoyed our meal. Claws has a wide variety of seafood entrees - prepared and fresh - that will please most anyone but where they really shine is with their fresh catches. The day we were there we had the lobster special - one of the best ever and that includes lobster in Maine... More
