What a great site. We sat overlooking the ocean, with brown pelicans flying overhead, and it was warm & comfortable, not HOT, as it was inland.

Dine by the Sea & Eat Great Seafood. The food is so amazing and romantic. One last tip: order the signature cornbread--it's a treat.

Our waitress was delightful and gave us personal attention so we felt pampered. No wonder, this is our go-to spot for beach-side dining and culinary bliss. Follow your meal with a stroll on the beach and you'll know what I mean. The Crab's Claw's like a sea cruise without the rock n' roll deck. And you don't have to dress for dinner. Casual's just fine.

Oh, I should mention that the food's superb--my salmon was cooked to delicious perfection. It was great having a choice of grilled or blackened and being asked how I wanted it cooked. The medium rare I requested was spot on. My honey raved about his crab-cake sandwich--he said it was heavy on the crab and light on the breading. I begged a bite--and he was right. We've had the cocoanut shrimp appetizer before and it rocks.

If you're a romantic, like me, nothing's more atmospheric than dining by the sea. That's why my honey and I fell in love with the Crab's Claw. Sitting on the deck gives you a seaside ring seat to all the fascination of the beach. Kite surfers, volleyball games, seagulls, pelicans flying in formation, leaping dolphins and -if the timing's right--a beautiful Crystal Coast sunset. The waves rolling in and out. The Carolina Blue sky. So relaxing. Sigh.

Great place for an afternoon lunch on the beach. Ice cold beer and great food. Love the steamed shrimp. Despite the crowd on a beautiful fall Saturday we were able to get an umbrella table on the deck. Staff is very attentive.

Excellent Margarita, excellent crab dip! Lobster bisque was very yummy and the bacon wrapped scallops very good too. Dessert was the "Shark Fin" enough to share, very big. Always love the view too! Others in our group had the salad with shrimp and Fish dishes. Son had a basket of fries-very good too. No food left at our table! :)

Had a table for ten and the service was spot on. All entrees were prepared to perfection and portions were more than adequate. The bacon raped scallops for starters is a must when you visit. Waite service by Nancy was superb, quick, friendly, and knowledgeable of all items on the menu. We will surely visit again on our next visit here.

Stopped here for lunch on Saturday afternoon with some family that was in town, all had excellent experiences. Food was great, sat on balcony outside with a great view, and service was good. Had the Cuban sandwich which although not as flat as it should be it was delicious, family had crab cake, tuna sandwich, chicken sandwich - all were great. Also suggest a mojito

The food was very good. I had the fried oyster basket special, and it was delicious. My friend said that the sweet potato fries were the best he had had in a long time, and the steamed clams were great, and the broth they came in made us order more bread for dipping. The service was good, not fast, but with such a location why should it be.

There were 5 people in my party. We enjoyed this place better that any place in the 11 years we have been going to Morehead City. Great views of the ocean. Reservation would be best but who cares, sit at the bar view the ocean while you wait. The food is great. The service was exceptional. Not a fancy place. There is no AC. But eat out side and enjoy the view. Great place.

Weve 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!

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

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.....

The Crabs Claw is a diamond in the rough! I was in Atlantic Beach for business, two weeks ago, and I stumbled upon this charming little oceanfront restaurant. I got the special which was called "The Picnic." let me tell you, this was great eats at a very affordable price. The best part of the picnic was the ribs. Whatever you do, if you go to the Crabs Claw, you gotta get the ribs! Aside from the great food, they have a great selection of beer and wine to choose from (and I had a few!). Additionally, the atmosphere and service was top notch. It was nice and quiet due to it being the off-season at the beach, so it was a perfect evening out... no crowds, no fuss, good food, and a birds eye view of the Atlantic Ocean. Thanks for a wonderful dining experience!
