Took family to say thank you for all they do. Food was excellent, service great, price is reasonable. Make a reservation early in the week, they get very busy. Thanks for an enjoyable evening.

So I visit this place atleast once a week! Crabs are awesome, shrimps was great, service was great! They never disappoint me. A lil advice if you want blue crabs. Always call to check to see if they have blue crabs in stock before you go because during the off season they tend to sell out.

Have been wanting crabs for awhile, and was already in Jersey so I decided to give Blue Claw another chance after a big disappointment last time around. We had a reservation for 3pm, but our previous activity ended earlier than expected so we went in a few hours earlier. We were seated immediately which was good since we were all... More

Hello Cee Thanks for taking the time to write a review - I'm sorry it was not a better review - sometimes crabs are on the light side - but they should never have a rotten taste - you should have sent them back. I look forward to seeing you on another visit. Norman/Owner More

My colleague and I were in the area on business travel. I tried the crab combination with corn on the cob. It was perfectly seasoned, a healthy portion, and delicious.

I have been coming to Blue Claw Crabs for the last 10 years and it has been consistently the best place to get cooked crabs. You can always get the crabs seasoned anyway you would like them and they are always piping hot. I personally like the garlic crabs, however my wife loves hers cooked and seasoned Baltimore style.

This is my first time writing a review on a restaurant. My mom and I took my mother from church here for her 74th birthday. She said, and I quote "she had the time of her life feasting". The fried mushrooms were fresh and HUGE. The crabs were outstanding. And clam chowder and sides were delicious. The at home atmosphere... More

I used to always visit Blue Claw often, but haven't been in over four years. I've been craving crabs- didn't feel like cooking them myself so I decided to go to Blue Claw and get my fix. I drove almost an hour from Philly, only to be disappointed. I wanted the all you can eat blue claws, but was told... More

If you want crabs, great crabs, you want the Blue Claw. They prepare fresh crabs every day, big ones too.
