The Crab’s Claw Inn Restaurant Review

: A senior hangout at lunch, yes. A sports bar extraordinaire, yes. A beer-lover’s haven, you bet. This Jersey Shore restaurant caters to one and all with its large menu, affordable prices and breezy spirit. All the classic seafood crowd-pleasers are here---Maryland-style crab cakes, steamers, shrimp cocktail---but so are surprises such as an extensive barbecue take-out menu with ribs and pulled pork. The wine list suits the casual restaurant style. For dessert, we recommend the Key West lime torte, made in-house.
