Good fish restaurant.

Ordered one entrée of Grouper and another of Lump Crab cakes. The crab cakes were very good and came with two sides. The crab cakes were some of the better ones we have had in our travels. The Grouper came with risotto and asparagus. The risotto was tasty but undercooked, some of the grains... read more

Good prices, great food! Nice size portions and friendly service. We had ordered the nachos for an appetizer and then each a meal. The nachos appetizer was huge, homemade salsa and guac, fresh tomatoes and just plain wonderful. My fiance had the mahi mahi and said it was cooked perfectly. I had a turkey sandwich that had balsamic dressing on... More

We ate at Claws last week. Food and service was very good. I asked the waiter a question that he didn't know the answer. Instead of making up an answer, he excused himself and promptly found the answer. Appetizer & food was served in a timely manner. All was good!

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

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.

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.
