Very accommodating and great fresh food!

We chose this restaurant for a Friday night dinner for 32 people from our baseball team. We called early in the day and the staff went back and forth with us for a while with questions and plans and in the end, they accommodated our whole party. Half of the party (or more) were kids aged 8-16. We... read more

My family wanted to get steamed crabs while on vacation. We decided to try Claws for the first time. Crabs were not on the menu and we had to ask if they had any. We were told they had large crabs and we ordered a dozen. While waiting a plate of chips and dip were brought out. Never eating here... More

We were a group of 10 and I am not a seafood eater. I was worried about the smell of seafood so I was not too thrilled with the group choice. I was pleasantly surprised. We had a great time here. Just a casual fun place. Most of the group got crabs and I had the filet mignon. All the... More

Thanks for leaving a review. I am happy that you enjoyed your meal.

My son wanted to get some crabs for lunch during our vacation. The place we were going to go to did not open until 4 so we decided to try claws; it was a mistake. There were only two other people in the restaurant when we came in which should have given us a clue. We ordered a dozen large... More

Shortest wait on a Saturday night, but I think it was closer to an hour than the 30 minutes we were told. STRONG drinks (Dark and Stormy for my lady and Grapefruit Crush for me). Food was good, grilled mahi a tad overcooked, liked the mango, rice, and asparagus. Girlfriend loved the grouper risotto with lobster sauce. Very very friendly... More

Good seafood with a good selection, relaxed atmosphere, great service. Have no complaints except we could not get a table indoors so we sat outside in the hot, humid weather. After a cold beer, everything was fine. : )

The weather is our biggest enemy here at Claws. About 25% of the seats we have are outside and it makes it tough on hot summer days because everybody wants a little taste of the cool air conditioning. Luckily it hasn't been extremely hot this summer and it's been easy but you must've caught us on a hot one! Glad... More

So glad we chose this bar for happy hour! We ordered the wings and peel and eat shrimp. Since happy hour is only at the bar, we were lucky to get a seat and this was only mid-May. You get a roll of paper towels with your food. We also ordered delicious dirty martinis. Service was good, drinks were great,... More

My husband, 2 kids and I dined at Claws Seafood House for my birthday over the 4th of July weekend. We had a 20 minute wait but the time went very fast while we browsed the Christmas Shop that was right next door. The server was delightful and wasted no time in taking our order.

Crabs were drowning in seasoning...not bad, but expensive. Shrimp was okay. We recalled it being better three years ago, so maybe they've got too much competition.

I am sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your experience as much as your past, and we are sorry that the crabs were over seasoned. We hope that you give us another chance! You can always order your crabs lightly seasoned, or order it on the side all together. Hope you enjoyed your weekend! More

Claws has it all...atmosphere, service & great food! First choice is to eat inside or out. Location right on Rehoboth Ave..in the thick of Rehoboth area. Excellent drinks & the highest quality seafood (also pasta & beef for non-seafood lovers). This place is a no brainer.
