We had a group of 8 and we were seated without issue even though the place was quite crowded. The... read more

My friend and I ate dinner here last night and both decided to try the lobster roll. The lobster rolls are large and tasty, with a generous portion of lobster served on a nice French roll. Salad portions could have been larger. Sides of corn on the cob and veggies were good.

Great happy hour, though a bit cramped. if you're lucky, get a seat at the bar or in the off season, at the tables when the swing open the wall. crab legs are always a treat with the beach bucket, roll of paper towels and cracker. other happy hour items are delicious too.

We were so happy to see Claws had breakfast 7 days a week this morning, and even happier to see a fantastic menu and quick service when we sat down. The food didn't disappoint. I had a healthy omelet and my partner had french toast. The home made bloody Mary and 'Sce-mosa' were a home run too. It was absolutely... More

Comfortable, friendly atmosphere. Lobster roll was the best! Waitress was friendly, informative, and helpful. Mahi sandwich was delicious and desserts were really great. Very casual and relaxing. Perfect beachy eatery. You can order crabs, have paper spread on your table and enjoy the mess! Kids were having a great time.

This is one of only a couple of restaurants that served Blue Crabs in downtown Rehoboth Beach. The service is always great! and Happy hour is a fun time to stop by!

Thanks for leaving a review! Our biggest crabs right now are coming from Texas and Louisiana! We are still getting local crabs from Maryland and Virginia, but their quality hasn't been as high this year (at least not yet, but It's early!) Thanks again! More

We visited here Sunday morning for some breakfast. It was a group of 14 of us. They gave us 1 server even though we were pretty much the only group there. Instead, other severs were sitting outside enjoying some sun. C'mon management! Parties of 14 should NOT have 1 server! Service was slow, poor and generally unfriendly. I guess when... More

Loved loved loved the Oysters Asaigo! Very inventive and absolutely done to perfection. We ate on the front covered porch which at lunch was not crowded but could get crazy for happy hour! My friends had fried oysters (tender and juicy) and the crab cake which was excellent.

We're glad that you enjoyed the Crabs and Beer. We are actually happy to announce that Big Oyster Brewery of our sister restaurant has just debuted their new beers, and we will be featuring them on our draft list shortly. Check out Fins Ale House and Raw Bar, also located in Rehoboth Beach! More
