I love restaurants that make it work, repurpose an existing house or structure that wasn't originally intended to be a restaurant...it really brings out the quirky and not your cookie cutter place. I was craving crab and they delivered! Half off on a Tuesday too...More

Our server, also the bartender got annoyed when my friend changed something in her order. The hush puppies were heavily breaded and over fried, hard to eat. My Maryland crab soup tasted like it was vegetable soup, very little crab. So many great places to...More

I know Claws is the sister to Fin's, but there is a marked difference between the two. Claws seems to be going after a different clientele which is fine but at least the food standards between the two places should at least be comparable.

Have always been treated good here. You must go to the bar for the happy hour prices. You can get stuff from the regular menu too. Can't go as often as I would like but have good reason to return. We seem to run into...More

Tim the bartender was great. the drinks were strong and reasonably priced. I had peel and eat shrimp that was overcooked. Tim immediately offered to replace them or have something else. He took them off the tab. We will definitely return

Very poor service. Paid $70 for 12 medium crabs and 4 were very mushy. Would not replace (said that's y they give extra) really? You know you are putting out bad crabs so you give out more? Unbelievable! Clams were good but would not go...More

When I was introduced to Rehoboth about 10 years ago, this was the first place I was taken to, and it was incredible. I hadn’t been in a few years, so thought I’d treat my friend who was a Rehoboth “virgin” to something special. I...More

We ate at this restaurant twice last summer because we enjoyed the food so much. On our first night back at the beach, we ate there again. There was a large crowd of people, and we had to wait almost an hour to be seated....More

They do not take reservations. It's a first come first serve & there's always a line outside waiting, but the line moves fast.
