First time trying this place on a beautiful night. At first we were so impressed, our 7:30 table was ready, everyone had smiles, we ordered immediately and the appetizer came right away. After watching everyone after we arrived get their dinner we respectfully asked the waitress after waiting 45 minutes if our dinner was on the way, she responded, "Well... More

It's a great place. Crazy to drive to find but when you do the crab is outstanding and it's as on the water as it gets in Brooklyn.

There are many ways to describe Clementes. I stopped there after a volunteer beach clean up at Plum Beach, very nearby. It is a very retro place, much like Brooklyn in the 60s, especially the decor and atmosphere. The help, however, reflects the new generation of Brooklyn. The food is outstanding! Try the crab chowder for certain. During nice weather... More

Finding Clemente's was part of the experience. As close to the water as possible in Brooklyn at Sheeps Head Bay (I think) and what a find it was. The Honey and I got there early, it was before 5:00 and there was only one other table occupied. The staff seemed to be having their "pre-meal" meeting, but we were greeted... More

Went there for a my girlfriend's birthday dinner. We were seated very quickly, the starters came out very quickly. The entries were held up but I believe this was due couple large parties being present. The price was very reasonable. Highly recommend.

Pro's: The food and location are great. Con's: Pricey, LOUD, mediocre service, filthy bathrooms. The food is good BUT the location is peaceful and serene, but the obnoxious music blasting throughout destroys the setting. The service was barely acceptable. Women's bathroom has 2 stalls. One is out of order and the other was filthy, flooded, rolls of toilet paper on... More

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
