The fact that we regularly drive here for seafood speaks for itself. Crabs, lobster, crabcakes, raw bar, jumbo crabs, all you can eat crabs, all delicious and fresh, great location, wonderful staff. I have never had a single bad

It Took them 1 hour and 20 minutes to seat us while more than half the tables were empty on a Saturday night. It was like a bad movie. I asked the hostess "whats up with all the empty tables?" She replied "those are reserved". THose same tables stayed empty the whole night. After waiting for an hour i asked again and she said that the kitchen was backed up.. That's ridiculous to me, in this economy when businesses are dying for clientele these peop-le are rejecting business away. Either hire more staff or close down!!! This place is a joke

This place was horrible. I decided one night I was in the mood for some seafood, so I went for a place that was local. First it was a difficult place to find, second the place is a hole in the wall with bad lighting. Only two waitresses to wait on the entire restaurant. Me and my girlfriend ordered crab cakes for appetizers. It took less then ten minutes to get it, and guess what they were not even hot and the plate was all leafy greens. Bad start. I ordered a soda thinking it would at least be served in a glass, nope plastic cups. By the way no free refills. You would get more bringing in your own 1 liter bottle then what they gave me that night. Finally the main courses came out I had a lobster roll with some fries. Roll was less then impressive my girlfriend had the shrimp and lobster ravioli. It was decent but could have been better. This place sucks so don't waste your time. You would be better off going to city island. You will get more for your money trust me..plz take my word for it.

Its a shame because we really did enjoy having dinner here, but too many consecutive bad expereriences with very poor service have turned us off.
Waitresses disappear, orders are forgotten or taken incorrectly, tables left dirty..... and management doesn't seem to mind at all.

the crab dishes were really fresh and the ambience and drinks were equally fantastic. i wish it was easier to get to, but then again it doesnt hurt tht its a "destination" spot

My first few times at Clemente's was not during their typical season, and I was very impressed. The service was great, and each successive course seemed more delicious than the last! Dessert topped it off (even though everyone at my table was more than full, we couldn't resist!) and was fantastic. I have gone back during their on-season, and it's a beautiful atmosphere, but expect to wait longer for a table and much longer for your food.

I have eaten at this heaven for crabs MANY times and if you haven't, then you haven't eaten crabs. Evenings sitting on the deck, bucket of crabs in one hand and a beer in the other mean SUMMER IN BROOKLYN BABY!!! (and now they are open all year so I can have summer anytime).

Also, if you still have room and come on, you still have room for this. Get the Deep Fried Twinkie (No, I'm not kidding).

The only down side is it is pretty much a cash only place so plan ahead (or use their ATM).

Just get your butt down to Clemente's and have a feast!!

my husband and i were looking to try a new restaurant so we decided to try clemente's. the sea food joint's chow was wonderful. the food and fish were fresh and well cooked, absolutey delish! i highley reccomend the lobster and all you can eat crabs. for the most part, the staff was very kind, extremely helpful, and friendly. the only turn off from the staff was a woman who was bragging to be the owners sister, personally i find stuff like this obnoxious and a turn off. other th,an that i highly recomend eating here because the food is great and so is the water front location.

Pros: food, most of the staff, location

.

This place is great for lunch, dinner, or even a quiet drink at sunset. Where else in NYC can you sit on a deck and watch the boats pass. As for the food, the best crabs north of baltimore. The staff is friendly, curtious and treat you like part of the family. I've been a customer for many years and the food and service are second to none. I love this place.

Good for a snack if you are in the neighborhood
The food was tasty and brought to our table quickly.
It was a bit noisy the night we were there because of a party, but otherwise no complaints.

Over the years I am always looking for a place to be outside on nice nights and have I found it! I have to say that being a customer for years I have never had a bad experience. The staff is fabulous and very helpful. The place is very crowded on the weekends and I have learned to call ahead. The food is over the top, this weekend I tried the lobster special and let me tell you I'll be back for more. My waitress highly recommended it and as always she was right. The service is like no other and they are more then happy to make recommendations. Go there with an appetite and some time, it's always like going to a friends for dinner!

Cons: none

My friend recommended this restaurant, so I gave it a try last night. I found nice casual outdoor dining and a nicer outdoor bar area. The food is good and the outdoor ambiance was just as good. The waitress we had was sweet. Patience is necessary as I was told that all food was cooked to order. That was fine, since I was able to enjoy a couple of those fancy frozen drinks I saw others sipping on at the bar. My choice, the frozen marguerita! If you have time and you aren't looking for just a meal, but a night out, then this is your place. The whole experience is what my rating is based upon. I will be back!

I have dined at Celementes a few times and always like the food. I mainly go for the crabs and the affordable drinks. However, the past couple of times that I visited, I experienced terrible service! The host was very nice and tried his best to seat us promptly, but the servers were awful. Once we were seated we waited 35 minutes for someone to just take our order - despite me asking 4 separate servers for help. My water was only filled once - again I had to ask twice and the entire time I felt ignored. To get cocktail sauce - I actually had to walk to the kitchen and ask for it myself. I also wouldn't recommend this place for families. There were numerous customers that were trashed INSIDE the restaurant - swearing, falling all over the place and no one did anything - they appeared to be friends with management. The food is great, the view is great, but the service and ambiance is horrific.

Wow! Wow! Wow! What a great dinner and fun time me and 7 friends had for my 40th Birthday. The outdoor deck is great and the food was amazing. I didn't eat crabs but my friends who did said they where great. I had steak and it was very good.
I hope to go back soon. Cheers to the staff at Clementes Crabhouse.

A friend told me about a restaurant she heard a buzz about and knowing how much I love Blue Claw Crabs we went to check it out. It happened to be Karaoke night and besides dinner it was like watching a show in front of my eyes. We where there for 2 1/2 hours and laughed and enjoyed dinner and the people sitting next to us where wonderful. I will be back there soon!!!

I went to clementes for the first time last night. It was the day before July 4th and the place was packed. We luckily got a seat right on the water and I could not believe I was still in brooklyn! The waitress, although seemingly very busy, was very attentive to my husband and I all night. We orded mussels ( red sauce), crabcakes, and shrimp oregenata and everything was excellent! We will be going back on wednesdays for Karoke!

went to have dinner with my husband & 2 kids (teenagers). They ordered chicken, linguini & clams , oysters, clams & mussels among other things. I was the only one that asked for the All U Can Eat Crabs. I was reminded by the weitress with every other bucket( by the way 2 to 3 crabs in a bucket) that there was no sharing (no one in my family likes crabs thats why they ordererd something diferent). We went there because of me because I love crabs. We were there for a couple of hours, having wine and enjoying the afternoon. My husbands was just ordering everything from this menu to keep up with me and my crabs. I got so annoyed to be repeated over & over not to share (and I wasn't) I probably ate 8 - 10 very small crabs in total, that I asked to speak to the manager who was one of the owners and went over and complaint to him about the embarrasement I felt from the waitress. He was even worse, he automatically took the waitress defense with no apology what so ever (Ive never seen a owner defend so vigorously his employee) , totally rude towards me and my family to the point of walking away from us while I was speaking (what ever happened to customers come first?). We were 4 and spent $165.00 just to have a horrible closing experience. We usually eat out every week-end and I have never been so humiliated or treated as bad as in this place. I actually apologized to my family for the bad choice in restaurant I made. Besides the food was just ok. I would definitely NOT recomend this place. If to begin the owner has no class, can you imagine?

The Maryland Crab Cake appetizer is not what one who's had TRUE MARYLAND CRAB CAKES would expect. The portion to say the least is somewhat miniscule, and not of great substance and quality. A true Maryland crab cake has succulent lumps of lump style crab meat in a little patty with nice seasoning. These were 3 tiny flat little crabcakes that were not much bigger than a postage stamp. They consisted of shredded, flaked boring stuff that was definitely not lump crabmeat. The lobster was nothing better than average. The vegetables were very boring, especially the potatoes that were nothing more than a chunked out spud salted and diced. The broccoli was just lightly steamed and drowned with minced garlic-- NOT GOOD!!!
The Maryland Crab Soup was very tasty, but the bowl was not much bigger than a cup. The filet mignon was OK but honestly NOTHING TO RAVE ABOUT. The ease of finding this place would be better with a few signs guiding you in the right direction. The phone staff, although pleasant, could not guide you there on a bet! This was my first visit and, needless to say, did not leave me with a great impression.

Clemente's has become one of my favorite restaurants. I go there often with family and friends and we are guarenteed a great meal, friendly service, and a refreshing atmosphere. We enjoy eating outdoors in the warmer weather with the view of the marina closeby. I am a huge fan of Maryland crabs and trust me, there is no other restaurant that I have ever been to that cooks them better than here. Try the lobster rolls - you won't be sorry! For those who are not fish people, there are other foods to choose from on the menu that are just as delicious. My kids enjoy the teriakyi wings and the mozzarella triangles. Have a drink at the Tiki bar, sing your heart out on karaoke night - it's an awesome time! Try it once and you will definitely go back.

CLEMENTES CRABHOUSE IS MORE THAN JUST CRABS. I HAVE HAD STEAKS THERE THAT WERE BETTER THAN IVE HAD AT EXPENSIVE STEAKHOUSES. THEIR BURGERS AND CLEMENTES CHICKEN ARE AWESOME. CALAMARI AND MUSSELS ARE 2ND TO NONE. I LOOK FORWARD TO THE WARMER WEATHER WHEN THEY OPEN THE OUTSIDE SEATING AREA AND OUTSIDE BAR. ITS A PARTY ATMOSPHERE WITH FRIENDLY AND ADORABLE WAITRESSES. JUST A FUN PLACE TO BE FOR LUNCH, DINNER OR JUST A COUPLE OF DRINKS. SEE YA THERE !!!

My husband and I have heard about Clemente's for a while and since we live in the area thought we'd give it a go. During the summer - based on the address alone - we couldn't find it. Now that it's winter we were so happy to have found it tucked away. I would give it another try in the summer for crabs, but for an overall seafood restaurant I was not impressed. The fried calamari was good but the baked clams seemed hardly cooked, with the same of the topping. The shrimp was okay, but I've had better. With the ratings I was expecting something great. Perhaps during crab season it is great. During the winter - not so much. Nice service staff nevertheless.

I have been going to Clemente's every summer for three years now and 2007 is their best summer yet. The all you can eat crabs is now $29.95, and still worth every penny. Some of my other favorites are their mussels in white sauce- nice and garlicky, and their crab cakes which are full of meat. Oh and their burgers are amazing...they almost taste like a meatloaf- soo flavorful. For dessert, a must-have beer-battered twinkie with ice cream. It might sound crazy, but it is awesome!

They have created a little lounge area with wicker furniture right by their Tiki Bar which serves delicious frozen drinks. The waitresses are absolutely adorable and there when you need them. They now have Karaoke every Thursday night and a juke box that you can play anytime you want.

The one thing that has not changed is that they are still hard to find. Ignore the address. Instead, get off the Belt Parkway at Knapp St, go down Knapp, and make a right onto Harkness, then a right onto Plumb 3rd and then finally a left by the boat yard. It's along -side the Belt Parkway on your left.

Oh, and remember Cash only

Cons: none

My wife and I tried Clemente's for the first time and we were very very impressed. The food was really good and the service diligent but not overbearing. We ate outside (a little chilly that evening) and it was super. We had fried Calamari, mussels and crab cakes and one was better than the next. We asked for the mussels have some kick and they cooked them with a lot of love. We will surely go back again. I might sneak out of my office and go back there for lunch today
