Description: CLAW BBQ and Seafood Restaurant is the incarnation of America's favorite style eatery featuring Southern hospitality at its best. The mood is fun, the vibe energetic, the food mouth wateringly delicious, and the cocktails... Strong! The huge outdoor terrace means that the party crowd can spill out, eat and drink with friends during the cooler months and enjoy being in the thick of Downtown Dubai.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

Slightly disappointed by Claw BBQ after hearing such good things. The food was average but the bill was high at c600 AED per person for a starter, main and 3 drinks. Service was good, waiting staff are friendly, helpful and most speak English as a first language which is rare in Dubai. We will return for the cocktails but doubt we will go back for dinner.

“Much better second time round”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

Visited Claw for the second time this weekend. The first time I found the food to be quite average, especially the ribs which were very dry. This time I risked the ribs again and they were much better. Also enjoyed the prawn cocktail and the sloppy Joes was excellent. I enjoy the atmosphere, the location is good and the pitcher cocktails made for sharing.

“Enjoyed it!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

Located in Souk Al Bahar, Downtown. I have visited Claw twice now and find it great value for money if you compare to similar restaurants in the area. It is very informal dining and American in it's approach. It has a bar area as soon as you walk in, and you are welcome to have a drink there without dining. The food is wholesome and comes in large portions. Try anything BBQ ed it's all good.

“Standard fare”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

Not too bad. Awesome wings and average fajitas.

Nice selection of beers but really slow service. Liked the decor as it made a nice change and there was a lively atmosphere.

Toilets were gopping. Really rank.
