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.

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.

There is a nice vibe in Clemente's Crab House On a nice day, the outdoor area is a really nice escape. Very different for Brooklyn location. The setting is in a Marina. There is a dining area outside under a canvas rooftop to shade the sun. There are also multiple outdoor sofa style seating areas to enjoy beverages and food.... More

Brooklyn is full of crab places but this one has very good service and excellent food - tasting platter for 4 was an excellent choice. We had to wait for about 40-45 minutes to get t, but it was well worth it - snow crab, alaskan crab and 2 others were great. Lemonade was also excellent. Service attentive and waiters... More

Saw the sign for this restaurant on my way to JFK airport and decided to try it on the way home. Very close to the freeway but on the water and not too noisy. Had a dozen crabs between 2...half garlic and half Old Bay...Old Bay won by a large margin. Came with some rather sad corn and fries that... More
