We’ve been coming to Pine Knoll Shores for almost 20 years and this is the 1st time we went to Crab Claws. We had a party of 14 and no one had one single complaint about their meals. It was a little while getting our meal (not really that long) but we had 3 children but we went out and walked on the board walk and watched the ocean so that was not a real problem, just more fun for the little ones ! Pricing was comparable to other restaurants but the food superior ! The service was very good and very attentive to our needs. A ++++++++++++ all around !
One of the best places for seafood in Atlantic Beach! It is a Caribbean seafood so it can be a little bit spicy, but full of flavor! Nothing is fried here either which is a plus. Great location and gorgeous view of the ocean and beach. We came here for our 4 year anniversary and the waiter was so sweet in congratulating us. Great for a date night or casual lunch. Also if you are ever looking for catering Toni does an amazing job at taking care of her customers!
Awesome service from Laura! Food was fantastic too. We had bacon wrapped scallops, lobster bisque, a steam pot and the blackened mahi fettuccini. The views are great as well.
I am an original coastal N.C. guy. I have lived on each coast and dined at some of the best coastal restaurants on each. I now live in the D.C. area (I know poor me!) but I visit home every few months and drive straight out HWY 70 until you can't go any further and dine at MY Crab's Claw, welcome home! I've been coming to Crab's Claw since its' inception, so I'm partial or somewhat biased! But that's okay because if you visit you want be disappointed either. There's great food, great service (that's because Laura sits this fat old dude by the window and calls me "darlin" :-)! Okay, she says that to everyone, but I can dream!), great view.
The atmosphere is extremely cozy and comfortable. We went in the late evening so were unable to see the ocean, but my husband and I will definitely return during the summer months to enjoy that perk. The food was good. I had the Salmon sandwich with sweet potato fries. My husband had clams for an appetizer and the lobster with filet for his entree and was very satisfied. The service was very good, the servers (Rose and Deb) were extremely tentative and helpful. Overall, I think it is a great restaurant that my husband and I will revisit again soon.
Always have such a great time when I go out to lunch here!!! The view is wonderful and a walk on the beach is a great way to work off all the delicious food afterwards. Coconut fried shrimp is a favorite of mine and goes great with a passion fruit mojito!!
Great place to grab lunch and enjoy an amazing view of the beach. The staff is very friendly and I have loved all my meals there. Last time I went was this past December, and while it was chilly outside, it was still nice to sit at the bar, chat with the bar tender, and take in scenery. The upstairs dining room is by far the best option. The wait between ordering and receiving your food is a bit slower than I'd prefer, but well worth the wait
Beautiful view! We stopped in for lunch over the holidays. I had the Tuna sandwich and my husband had the Grouper sandwich, both were delicious! Our waitress was also very friend
Great place for an easy lunch with a great view. Sandwiches were great and so was the Bloody Mary!
Cozy restaurant/bar with the best ocean view on Atlantic Beach, NC. Food/menu is always excellent and the staff make dining at the Crab's Claw a pleasurable experience. Great view of sunsets over the ocean in the fall/winter from the deck and a great place to end a summer's day at the beach. Fun to watch the beach volleyball games from the deck in the summer as well. We're "regulars/local"...as well as many of our friends.....
