The problem with the restaurant is the food. They've gone "Caribbean" in the last few years, but trust me it doesn't taste like it. My first issue was their serving dinner before we had finished our salads so they had to clear the dishes while...More

My family and I visited Crab's Claw in Atlantic Beach during our vacation in August 2017. The location of the restaurant is ideal, as it is beach front! It's picture perfect, so relaxing. The service is supreme; let's say the staff each extend southern hospitality....More
