Q&A with Mike, General Manager
In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
Our menu and decor stems from the charming town of Charleston, South Carolina. We have a rotating list of fresh fish as well as a variety of specials that keep our seasonal visitors coming back year after year. We have fresh local clams and oysters, shrimp, mussels, crab cakes, pastas, salads, poboys, and of course, crabs. The sale of snow crab legs and blue crabs has been a staple of Claws since its opening in 2006, and there is simply nothing better than some fresh crabs and a cold beer. We also have a selection of non-seafood items for those who can't or simply do not eat seafood. Our beer list features both draft and bottled craft beers [from] some of the most popular breweries in the country.
Are there any dishes on the menu you consider to be a hidden gem—not necessarily the most popular, but surprisingly delicious?
We think that our crab cakes are the best in town. We also serve fresh cold-water lobster tails from time to time that, when paired with a filet mignon, can't be beaten. All of our menu items are hand-made and fresh, and made with local ingredients to boot. We also have a balsamic salmon that comes with sauteed brussel sprouts that people seem to adore. Our lobsters are shipped from Maine very regularly during the season, and we love seeing our customers wear lobster bibs and crushing some crustaceans.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
For people who aren't locals, we are located only two blocks from the ocean on Rehoboth Avenue, which is the main strip in town. It's a prime location that will be very busy during the summer months.
