We've eaten at the Crab Claw since 1982 but I'm now done. Having called ahead on Lobster Lovers' Night, we arrived to find them out of lobster. We might have chosen another entree but when we realized that a house salad cost extra, we decided...More

Took the whole family here and this semi-casual restaurant has very good seafood. We really enjoyed the menu that had lots to choose from including a raw bar. All the meals were done nicely.
