Good place for crab lovers!!

I been here couple of times mainly for the blue crabs (whole crab) they are small but tasty, i like that You can eat it outside so is not that messy. I tried the oysters and they were ok, the rest of the food just average. They only accept cash but have and atm machine.

Went there for a my girlfriend's birthday dinner. We were seated very quickly, the starters came out very quickly. The entries were held up but I believe this was due couple large parties being present. The price was very reasonable. Highly recommend.

Pro's: The food and location are great. Con's: Pricey, LOUD, mediocre service, filthy bathrooms. The food is good BUT the location is peaceful and serene, but the obnoxious music blasting throughout destroys the setting. The service was barely acceptable. Women's bathroom has 2 stalls. One is out of order and the other was filthy, flooded, rolls of toilet paper on... More

If you are looking for all you can eat crabs, this is the place to go in BK. Waitresses and waiters are nice, place might be a bit noisy/rowdy on Friday or Saturday nights but on weekdays it's pretty quiet. I've been there several times for crabs, always fresh. Also had lobster and clams on another occasion. It's best to... More

We went there in the dead of winter with the groupon offer, and the food and service were surprisingly good! Crabs, being crabs, are messy to eat, and even though they were just regular crabs with Old Bay seasoning, at least they tasted fresh. Because it was winter, it got dark early so we couldn't see the views outside, but... More

A lot of folks in brooklyn heard of this place but few have ventured out this far - you must know that it's def. worth it. I visited Clementes on Fri Feb 28th with a group of friends - outdoor section was obviously closed but the bar and diner sections were in full swing. The waitress was really helpful in... More

The seafood was really good. We've been here a few times and food is consistent. The crabs are flavorful but were really small this time. We will be back. This place only accepts cash.
