Highlight of our trip every year

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... read 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

the four of us had lobster. About 1 1/2 lb lobsters plus two large sides for $18.99. The lobsters were all declared sweet and delicious. The Mac and cheese was very, very good. The corn on the cob was cooked just right. We were all very satisfied with our meals.

Was in town for the weekend wanted Seafood since we were at the ocean. Got the Maryland Crab soup and it was so incredibly spicy that you could not taste anything but the spice, I am thinking that it was the Old Bay Seasoning. Way overdone. No tasting crab at all. The rest was just so so. Got the Maui... More

We went to Claws for the first time. Saw good reviews and decided to try it. The food was absolutely awesome! The prices reasonable and our waitress was extremely nice and knowledgeable about the menu. All 5 of us would recommend Claws to anyone we know.
