Great place for a good meal on the deck after a walk on the beach. Casual dress definitely acceptable. Seafood pricey but the salad with blackened mahi mahi was tasty & affordable.

Great view, great food and great service. I've been going to the Crab Claw for over 10 years and its always been great. Even if the food was terrible it would be worth coming here for the view.

We choose the Crab's Claw mainly because we wanted a good view of the beach but we were delighted with the quality of the food and the excellent service. We will definitely plan to return on our next trip to Atlantic Beach.

On a stormy summer night in early September 2013, three friends and I walked into the Crabs Claw restaurant for end of summer dinner. We were escorted up the stairs and seated inside at a ocean front table. Our waitress, Rose was very pleasant and enthusiastic even at the end of the shift. She described the specials and we ordered drinks and conch fritter appetizer. Rose checked on us often and took our orders for ribs and tuna dinners. The food was very tasty and served in genenerous sized portions. I had the ribs with spinach and sweet potato fries. The ribs were perfectly seasoned with a dry rub and they were VERY delicious. The spinach was very tasty. We were asked if we wanted dessert but we're stuffed from our delicious dinner! I am a local from the other side of the island, but will definitely be back and look forward to being able to sit outside , weather permitting :). I highly recommend you try Crabs Claw next time you are in town.

Steve and I were looking for good food with a great view... we found it here! Our server Nancy was great. My parent's live in NC and we go there 2 times a year. This was the first time we went to Crab's Claw and we will definitely go on our next visit. The beach, the view, and the service was great!
