Nice Restaurant

The claw has been in business for about 7 to 8 years. It is known for its seafood. Generally, it has a great seafood special (Lobster or Crab Legs) before 6 pm. All items are very good.

We had some of the best crab legs and shrimp we had ever experienced. It was so good we went back again. The service was excellent also. We would definitely return.

Nice menu provided choices for a foodie in our group, a shellfish allergic, and one who just likes to go to the shore and enjoy seafood. My fried oysters were not so good, but everything else was very good. The sides were really good.

If you like the bar scene and loud music more that the quality of the good this might be for you. A porch is available for outside seating but the chairs are resin and not at all comfortable. They obviously have not been cleaned this season as there are dried food particles and dust on the backs and under the... More

This place gets CROWDED, so go early as they don't take reservations. I loved the outdoor seating, and it is with a block or 2 of the boardwalk. My mom and I split the steamer sampler- everything from the king crab legs to the shrimp to lobster were amazing.

My husband I ate at Claws for a casual dinner in a Friday night. We love hard shell steamed crabs and we had gotten them at Claws on previous visits to Rehoboth Beach. We ordered six hardshells, Maryland Crab Soup and a basket of hush puppies. The hush puppies and soup came out first. The soup was very good with... More

The meal was excellent from sword fish to Fila mignon and mussels appetizer. They paced the meal just as we asked and never felt pressured and gave good advice when asked. The waitress was helpful, friendly, and nice to talk too.

Labor Day weekend was quite busy at Rehoboth Beach! We were in the mood for seafood. We have been visiting Rehoboth for 12 years and have never eaten at the little seafood establishment on Rehoboth Ave.when we approached the reservation desk we were told we would have to wait 1/2 hour. We sat at the bar and ordered a drink.... More

Great seafood restaurant on the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk. The stuffed clams, crab cakes and calamari are a must have.
