We happened to be here during the Sea Witch Festival and it was packed after the parade. Every restaurant had long waits. We went into several places with very long waits before we walked into this place with no wait at all. The food was fantastic and the beer was the best craft beer I've probably ever had. The pumpkin... More

My wife and I come to Rehoboth Beach every year to do an organized 10k walk. It just so happens to coincide with the Sea Witch Fest, which we don't usually care about. This year we moved up the walk to Saturday, and ended up here during the time the parade was passing through. We had front row seats, and... More

We were sent here by a local who said its the best seafood and happy hour around. Although I did not get them many people were taking advantage of all you can eat crabs, and they looked delicious. I had the crab cakes, and they were wonderful...all crab, no strange spices. My hubby had the seafood combo and he loved... More

My husband and I were deciding on diner as we walked past this restaurant. We went in blind (without reviews) and I'm so glad we did. Our waitress was super friendly and the food was amazing. The pumpkin crab soup was delish and I don't even like pumpkin anything!!! We also had the seafood bake and it was so yummy!!

Stopped in for Happy Hour on a Saturday and it did not disappoint. Happy Hour is only available at the bar, and the bar is very small, so get there early. The HH prices are great, and the bartender was excellent. My wife had the snow crab basket and I enjoyed the oysters. We arrived as soon as they opened,... More

I popped in to grab a quick beer whilst my mate obtained a little rolfing at One Spirit. What a fun crowd for 2pm Saturday afternoon in the 'post season'. The place was a buzz. The bartender was zippy with her welcome and with my pour. I watched her check each of her guests to make sure they were taken... More

We are been visiting Rehoboth Beach for many years and use to had dinner in Jakes Seafood. But after very bad experience in July we start looking for another seafood place. We are so glad we discovered Claws! The food was excellent, so many choices of delicious fish with different ways to cook and side vegetables. Staff very friendly and... More

Unfortunately we couldn't get an outdoor table, inside it was VERY loud. The music volume was more suited to a bar than restaurant. It was challenging to speak to the server and the people across the table from you. Our dinners were very good. However, my sons fries were HORRIBLE. They were hard, not crispy, hard. I love fries and... More

Enjoyed cracking crabs in a outdoor environment. Had daily specials for each size crabs. Daily Fish specials were expensive. Service was great. Great environment to sit and crack crabs and watch people go by. Would def go there again.

Ate lunch there yesterday. Got the blackened shrimp burrito.. had the shrimp on it, rice, beans, chipotle mayo. It was delicious!! You get one side with it too so I got the Mac and cheese which was really good too! I would definitely eat there again.. next time would love to try to fish tacos!
